How Does Water Quality Affect Window Cleaning

The quality of the water can be good for some activities, but bad for others. For example, hard water is good for drinking, but can be detrimental to cleaning your windows. Fortunately, there are several methods available to change the quality of water to make it ideal for whatever purpose you intend.

How Does Water Quality Affect Window Cleaning

What Determines Water Quality?

Water treatment facilities, sewage systems or natural environmental processes can affect the chemical, biological and physical composition of the water. Potential hydrogen (pH), color, odor and taste are all indicators of water quality. Water is also tested to see how much bacteria, organic matter or metals it contains, and government agencies typically regulate the amount depending on its intended use. Drinking water, for instance, should contain only a specific amount of these elements to be considered safe.

How Can Water Quality Affect Window Cleaning?

Cleaning your windows regularly can help maintain their beautiful appearance, but you should take extra care not to use hard water since it contains a large amount of dissolved minerals, which isn’t ideal for this purpose.

Softening your water for use in window cleaning can reduce the amount of total dissolved solids (TDS) that can leave unsightly spots or streaks on the glass surface. Investing in replacement windows prematurely can be a big drain on your savings, and, by using soft water, you can help extend the lifespan of your windows by keeping mineral deposit buildups to a minimum.

"The service provided by Renewal by Anderson is great, both on the sales and the installation side. Our sales representative was very accommodating and helpful. The installation crew was efficient and they all were professional. These are really nice windows and a great upgrade especially from builder-grade windows."

"It is great to do business with a company that still cares about what they do and respects the end goals. We appreciate your craftsmanship professionalism, and cannot say enough about the wonderful experience.

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
