To those living in Ripley, Knaphill, Surrey and the surrounding areas – we have a question for you. Do you know what the #1 culprit of perpetually dirty windows are?
Any guesses? The most popular guess, unsurprisingly, is dirt. While this is a great guess, it would be incorrect. While dirt and mud do make windows appear quite unclean, they’re pretty easy to wash off. The #1 cause for perpetually dirty windows is actually hard water.
When we tell our customers this, we’re surprised to learn that many of them have no idea what hard water is. To explain hard water, you first need to understand that not all water is the same. Some water is called soft water, which is the best kind to wash windows with, as it is low in disolved chemicals and minerals. Hard water is essentially the opposite. Hard water is water that has high concentrations of minerals like calcium and magnesium. When glass is exposed to hard water, the dried water leaves calcium deposits, otherwise known as lime scale, on the windows. Some of you may be thinking, So what? Just wash it off.
That’s when the problem comes in. Hard water stains seem nearly impossible to remove from windows. Simple water and soap or store-bought window cleaners will be useless in fighting these stubborn stains. The best way to get rid of hard water stains is to call in the professionals. At Integrity Window Cleaning, we are thoroughly trained to clean all types of stains from windows, including hard water stains.
We also have high quality cleaning products and tools that help us tackle even the toughest of stains. We use a water-fed pole system to clean our windows, which pushes pure water through thin and lightweight poles that can reach heights of up to 84 feet. This system is also equipped with a range of brush heads that attach to the poles to clean any type of stain.
Hard water stains are one of the trickiest kinds of stains to remove from your windows. Regardless of the type of glass on your windows, these stains stick and don’t like to budge. If you have specialty glass types, such as tinted or stained glass windows, we strongly suggest that you hire professionals to clean your windows, especially if you have hard water stains. You don’t want to risk damaging this delicate glass by harsh scrubbing motions in an attempt to clean hard water stains.
