A Brief Scientific Explanation of Why We Recommend this Schedule
Want your windows and doors to LOOK GREAT and LAST A LONG TIME?
- No problem! Just keep your interior and exterior glass CLEAN.
- Professionally clean your glass whenever dirt, organic residue, and/or hard water staining appears.
Why is it important to keep your glass clean?
- At the microscopic level, glass is actually a very porous material that exhibits ‘honeycomb’ like patterns on the surface.
- Left un-cleaned for extended periods of time, the pores in the honeycomb surface attract organic and inorganic contaminants which react chemically with the glass, firmly bonding to its surface.
- Constant radian energy from the Sun and the high ambient temperatures found in our arid desert climate accelerate this natural corrosion process.
What does damaged glass look like?
- New glass is bright and sparkling, easy to see through and easy to clean and keep clean.
- If not regularly cleaned, glass easily becomes stained and discolored, difficult to see through and difficult to clean and keep clean. The surface of the glass also possesses hydrophilic properties and is over time subjected to a corrosion process that will make its surface rougher and therefore its damage greater, in some cases irreversibly.
Why can’t I just rinse off the glass with my garden hose?
- Never rinse off glass with tap water without towel drying the glass.
- Fix or move landscape irrigation systems to prevent them from repeatedly hitting any glass.
