Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How long will it last/ How often do I need to re-apply the protection?
A: This all depends on the situation you are using it in. For example: in a standard shower situation with average hardness of water we recommend doing the cleaning and application process every 3-6 months. That's just to ensure the protection is fully topped up to it's highest potential. Though once it has been initially applied, the application process is significantly easier and takes less product. You might only use 1/3 of the Naked Glass Repellent the next time around as it has already been cured in the first process. You will only need a very small amount of the Restorer before reapplying the Repellent, just to ensure a completely clean surface again before it is given another level of treatment.
In the situation of a vehicle or house windows reapplication can be done annually or even longer apart. This is due to there being not as much interference with the glass in this situation compared to a shower. So the frequency of application is dramatically reduced. A vehicle's windscreen may need to be reapplied every 3 months or so as the wiper blades with slowly decrease the hydrophobic effect... though still the glass will be protected from permanent water-spotting damage.
Q: How do I maintain my surface once it has been protected?
A: The best way to maintain a surface once it has been cleaned and protected is with water. For example a shower should be cleaned once a week with water and a microfibre cloth. This will remove any stains that have dried on the glass. the reason we use water is that some chemicals may slowly break down the protection applied to the surface so to ensure the best reaction from the coating water is preferred.
For vehicle glass, the surface will come up sparkling new once it has been cleaned in a general wash or even hosed down properly. The same goes with exterior windows. They can be easily maintained by hosing down and drying any small remainder of drips left over.
Q: Can I apply the products wrongly?
A: With the Glass Restoration Kits, no. If you follow the instructions on the reverse of the bottle, it's as easy as that. If you have missed a spot and protect over it, not to worry. Simply go back over it with the restorer then re-protect it with the Repellent once the surface is at the desired state.
For Ceramic Gold - Care must be taken when applying this protection as it can be removed during the process if wiping too hard after the first two minutes of drying. Please feel free to contact us for further information on this if you are feeling cautious. It is a simple process, however it does need to be applied the right way.
