Shower screen cleaning, and Pivotech glass care and maintenance

It is important to regularly clean the anodised and powder coated areas of your shower screens to preserve their life and overall appearance.

At Mitchell Aluminium, we like to make life easy as much as we can, so we have listed some useful tips and guidelines which we advise you always follow.
