Regular upkeep can make all the difference when it comes to prolonging your stained glass’ life. Ensuring proper reinforcements have been installed and kept up with is vital to sustaining your stained glass. Moisture is the main culprit of deterioration. Moisture exposure is unavoidable but allowing moisture to sit on your stained glass windows can warp the glass as well as the lead came. As stained glass ages, it’s possible for moisture to creep into pockets of the stained glass making a hospitable home for fungus and mold to grow. Fungus and mold accelerates stained glass deterioration and can cause irreversible damage. Weekly cleanings and wipe downs ensures there’s no moisture buildup or opportunities for mold to live in your stained glass.
