How Water Quality Affects Window Cleaning

It is important to regularly clean and maintain your windows to keep them in pristine condition and looking brand new after occasional storms have passed. One of the main ingredients of a successful window cleaning service is the water quality, which has different benefits depending on its use. Here’s how the quality of your water can affect window cleaning. 

How Water Quality Affects Window Cleaning


What Is Water Quality?


The quality of water is generally determined by its physical, biological and chemical properties. With untreated water, some of the common pollutants found are viruses, bacteria, pesticides and salts. Factors like alkalinity, colors, odor, taste and pH are the indicators of water quality. Finally, though some government agencies put a limit on the level of contamination in drinking water, certain amounts of contaminants are still allowed in tap water.


What Is Hard Water?


Hard water, which is caused by dissolved minerals, is ineffective in cleaning. Minerals like calcium and magnesium reduce the foaming and cleansing ability of soap while scale deposits form on certain surfaces like the rims of bathtubs or interiors of boilers.


Ensure that your windows, whether specialty windows or traditional double hung replacement windows, will be thoroughly scrubbed and remain streak-free by scheduling a cleaning service from your local window company.


How to Effectively Clean Your Windows


Soften the water by removing those minerals to enhance the effectiveness of cleaning. This will result in less soap required to accomplish the same meticulous window cleaning. Also, there will be no spots or streaks that appear on the surface, eliminating the deposit buildup that can otherwise shorten the life of your windows.

"Excellent service and product! They checked in with me every few weeks while we were waiting for the order. I was impressed with Sam, who measured my windows and headed the installation crew. He was respectful and patient with his team. They cleaned up after themselves. Before the new windows I had huge windows that didn’t open. Now I feel much safer and get better temperatures in those rooms."

"My experience with Anderson Renewal was amazing! From the first meeting with Miranda to choose my windows and doors to the installation provided by Tim and his crew was a pleasure! I just bought a home built in the 1960's that needed new windows and a new double front door with sidelights. As everyone knows Anderson Windows are great, but it was the people I interacted with from Anderson that made it such a great experience. It took three days for the windows and door to be installed and they "worked" every minute they were here. My huge front door took most of the day to install because they had to put in a new header and other improvements to make it fit! They even put up new drywall on the inside. Many people in the neighborhood have stopped by to comment on my beautiful front door! I think the crew left my house cleaner than it was before they started! Constantly cleaning up after themselves. I am thrilled with my windows and feel lucky to have met the team at Anderson."
