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%.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
