Most window cleaning is pretty straight forward. Dirty glass is cleaned by using a biodegradable, non-phosphate soap, water, a scrubber and a squeegee.
Unfortunately, construction debris is not as easily removed from glass. The debris may include one or more of the following:
- paint, varnish or texture overspray
- cement, plaster, stucco, concrete, mortar or grout
- glue or stickers
- water proofing materials
If any of these conditions are present, additional methods and tools must be used to address the specific problem.
In addition, the following pre-existing condition may be present:
- water spots or mineral deposits-due to prolonged exposure to water containing excessive amounts of minerals
- haze or film-damage due to improper use of chemicals from past cleaning efforts
- scratches-damage due to past improper glass cleaning techniques, improper use of sandpaper by painters, glass manufacturing methods and/or contractor’s handling methods
- condensation-moisture between double panes of insulated glass
- ‘soft glass’-due to improper manufacturing techniques
Our job is to provide glass cleaning methods that have the best chance of restoring clarity to your windows. We will be happy to discuss the solutions to any of the pre-existing conditions mentioned above.
