How to Remove Water Stains on Windows

Keeping your place neat can be difficult at times. However, making certain that you won’t ever miss a spot makes it even more challenging, especially in certain areas where water leaves marks. In this post, windows company, Renewal by Andersen® of St Louis, will give you tips on how to get rid of hard water stains quickly.

How to Remove Water Stains on Windows

Follow this step-by-step process:

  1. Prepare a mixture of water and vinegar of equal amounts.

  2. Soak a towel in the solution.

  3. Press it onto the window, and let it sit for at least a minute or two. In this step, the acidity will soften the mineral deposits, making them easier to wipe off.

  4. Continue pressing and wiping the towel on the window until the visible spots disappear. Keep in mind that you may be required to repeat the process several times until all the spots are gone.

  5. Let the window dry with a rag.

On the other hand, if you wish to save more time and money, there are also self-cleaning windows for homeowners. This would help prevent the risk of accidents when people wobble up ladders with buckets of water.

It can be noted that self-cleaning windows have a very thin outer coating of titanium dioxide. This is a white, powdery titanium compound best known for giving that dazzling gleam to paint, toothpaste and all kinds of other bright white things. Its coating is thin, and it is created to reduce the light passing through the glass by at least 5%.

"We had a large picture window and two side windows replaced. Everyone from the person who took our order to the installers were top notch. We got exactly what we wanted. Granted, we had to wait a few months, just like you do for everything these days, but we were told that up front. The windows were well worth the wait. We've replaced windows before by going to home maintenance stores. Don't waste your money on those. Our Renewal by Andersen windows look great, they operate like a dream, and are worth every penny. Quality through and through."

"From start to finish everyone we dealt with were total professionals.. The project process was well communicated, the installers did an excellent job and the windows - I’m so excited about our new windows! They look great. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I am looking forward to cleaning them. And it was obvious immediately that the insulation is vastly better than the old windows. Also, I am just a customer who gets nothing for this endorsement. I just appreciate good service and an excellent product. This company knows how to do it right."
