Care Tips

How to care for your HydroShield Surfaces

Congratulations with your recent purchase of HydroShield. HydroShield aims to be one of the leaders in surface protection and restoration. By selecting HydroShield to protect your surfaces you have ensured long
lasting beauty and durability.

Maintaining HydroShield on Your Glass Surfaces

Using a squeegee or clean cotton towel and water, simply wipe the surface clean. If the dirt is stubborn, using a diluted mild cleaner such as simple green should make your surfaces sparkle. Occasionally, dirt may build up and require a light scrub with a white 3M pad available through your maintenance supplier or through our website. Each of these cleaning methods are safe for your HydroShield protected surfaces. Do not use any abrasive cleaners or abrasive pads other than a white 3M pad. If windows are exposed to sprinkler over spray, and have a mineral buildup, simply blade the minerals of the HydroShield surface with a 6 inch window cleaning blade. Blading does not harm HydroShield.

Harsh and Expensive Cleaning solutions Are No Longer Needed

Many products available through suppliers and on supermarket shelves contain acids that can harm interior and exterior building surfaces, as well as the environment. Some products may have health and bodily contact warning on the label as well. Products that include an acid are designed to, among other tasks, extract minerals and dirt from surface pores, fractures or crevices. Surfaces coated with HydroShield do not require harsh cleaning solutions or methods. Any product that includes any acids or a combination of any acids will void your warranty. Read all product labels carefully!

What to Expect with HydroShield

HydroShield protected surfaces still get dirty.  Any dirt, dust or other agent that normally causes a surface to get dirty will continue to make that surface dirty. The HydroShield surface is up to 75% easier to clean; the dirt and grime no longer penetrate the surface, but sit on top of the HydroShield coating. Surfaces such as windows may stay cleaner much longer than before. HydroShield coating protects the natural beauty, clarity and
luster of glass, granite, ceramic and tile.
