Are Glass Splashbacks Safe?
Your house is a perfect reflection of your personality. Beyond reflecting your status, the materials in your house portray to your friends and family whether your house is old-fashioned or one showered with modern technologies that make it beautiful and attractive.
One of your house materials that attract attention and portray your home as classy is your glass splashbacks. The beautiful splashbacks can help massage your ego by making your kitchen a beautiful attraction with unique colours. Glass splashbacks are the right option if you want to get your friends talking about your home. However, whether they are safe enough to be adopted is what you'll learn in this article.
While splashbacks are traditionally used in the kitchen, they can also be used in the bathroom.
Are Glass Splashbacks Safe?
We know you want a classy-looking kitchen or shower, but you may be concerned about its safety or durability. Who wouldn't, given that glass splashbacks can be more expensive than paint, tiled or wooden splashbacks?
Addressing your concerns, all our glass splashbacks are created using toughened glass. We do not deal with non-toughened glass to ensure your safety, money and home is well-protected. Our toughened glass splashbacks are produced at 6mm, which is the industry standard for toughened glass. The effect here is that the glass becomes heat resistant, suitable for use behind the hob. Also, toughened glass is strong and safe against cracks found in non-toughened glass. Toughened glass is also resistant to scratches which weaken the glass. Toughened glass ensures your glass splashbacks are durable and stand the test of time.

Safe Against Bacteria and Dirt
Unlike other splashbacks, the toughened glass used in making glass splashbacks is non-porous and antibacterial. If you are conscious about having a healthy environment, glass splashbacks are an ideal alternative to options such as paint, wood or tiles. Aside from its antibacterial surface, one major advantage of glass splashbacks is that they are very easy to clean. Simply use a standard glass cleaner to wipe the surface to make it new again. As easy as it seems, this feature is rare in other forms of splashbacks. However, when cleaning glass splashbacks, avoid the use of plastic, metal, or any other abrasive material or substance which can cause damage to the surface of the glass. Instead of chemicals, easy and natural methods should be adopted in cleaning the surface. Glass splashbacks also need to be cleaned regularly to avoid splashes being difficult to remove.
