Picture this: it’s a beautiful Autumn Saturday morning. You take a seat at your kitchen table with a fresh cup of coffee. You position yourself to face the window so you can look out at all the beautiful fall colors. You take one look out the window and see that the glass is covered in spots. You put your coffee on hold to go and investigate. After a couple swipes with a paper towel, you realize those spots are not coming off. ‘What is all over my windows?!’ you ask yourself. This, my friend, is a case of hard water stains.
Residential Window Cleaning and Hard Water Stains
Hard water stains can appear on glass for several reasons: acid rain, sprinkler overspray, or even a leaky gutter dripping on the glass. When a window gets wet, the water eventually evaporates and will leave behind mineral deposits if it is not properly and frequently cleaned. Pertaining to the windows on your home, sprinkler systems are usually the culprit for these unsightly stains. The over-spray from the sprinklers may not be very noticeable initially, but over time, it will create a build-up and form a haze on your glass as pictured in the ‘before’ photo below.
