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.

"I just bought my first house. My patio sliding door was rotten. So, I needed it to replace it. Renewal by Anderson of Southern Missouri listened to what I wanted and delivered it. They did a fantastic job of installing and cleaning up afterwards. They did it even in freezing rain that day I was scheduled to have it replaced. They even had a follow-up to check things out and do the touch ups. I'm amazed at there work. Great job Renewal by Anderson."

"On Feb 1,2024 my husband and I selected Renewel by Andersen for windows for our entire house. It made our house more beautiful with the picture windows. Made the outside more attractive, and on the inside. We did 14 windows. We had 4 men come to do the job in 1 day And they were very friendly, efficient,fast and cleaned up inside and outside perfectly. And most importantly we noticed the heating furnace runs less,therefore saving us money on our gas bill. We live in SW Missouri. We recommend anyone who wants to replace windows in their home to pick Renewal by Andersen. Sincerely, Darius and Nancy Durman"
