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%.

"Love the windows and patio door. We want to finish the whole house when we can financially. We give Anderson and employees, especially the sales rep Mike that came to our house, the highest rating. Mike was knowledgeable and courteous. Also not high pressure."

"Our installation team was top notch. While they said they were sending a "team"to install 21 windows it was only two people. But I see why, the process was seamless and everything was done correctly and consistently with the leadership of Clayton. We had a tiny problem with one window within a week of installation and their response time was prompt to remedy the situation. Our windows are beautiful. Our home is warm and cozy."
