Sprinklers can throw water to a point where it hits your windows. When this occurs, the chances of the water, leaving a stain or making the window look dull is high. Remember, landscaping water is often hard, which simply means that it contains a lot of minerals such as magnesium, calcium, and other compounds and metals. When such water evaporates, it leaves the minerals and compounds as deposits.
On the other hand, even though glass is seen to have a smooth surface, in actual sense, they are actually absorbent. What does this mean? Well, it simply means that glass can actually absorb certain material (compounds and minerals). For this reason, if hard water and salt stains are not cleaned, they will eventually cause permanent damage to the glass. Cleaning is the only way to prevent salt and hard water stains from happening. As a matter of facts, it is one of the reasons we clean window glasses.
On the other hand, it does not make any sense to race outside every time to clean your windows when you run your sprinklers (Although, it is wise to ensure there aren’t any water sprinklers that is hitting your windows or building). However, to prevent this issue easily, you must consider seeking the services of a Kansas City window cleaning company. They are in a position to help you get rid of these stains because they are equipped with the latest tools, equipment, and cleaning products.
It is important to note that using ordinary soap and water to remove deposits or water spots will not do the trick. Rather than wasting your cleaning soap, create a solution that is half and half of water and white vinegar.
Why Vinegar? Well, vinegar is acidic, and for this reason, it helps to break down water spots from your window. While cleaning, it is important to be gentle while scraping the glass. In that case, you should consider using a towel. There are cases where you will be required to repeat the cleaning process a few times to remove all stains.
The same solution can also be used to remove salt buildup. Remember, it is important that you use soft cleaners. When it comes to thick salts, you can use a plastic brush; however, you should not apply force. Another option to clean salt deposits is by using commercial lime removal spray combined with a vinegar solution.
Remember, when trying to clean water stains, salt deposits, or other contaminants; and end up cracking, scraping, scratching, or breaking the window; because of using too much force, insurance will not help you. On the other hand, if you hire a professional company, they are in a position to compensate you when there are damages. That is because these companies are insured and covered in case property damage.
However, because window cleaning companies are professionals with experience, the likelihood of an accident is minimal.
