Have you ever looked out your windows after a big rainstorm and all you see is dirt and grime that the disgusting rainwater left behind? It can look like a streaky, dingy mess! Well I am about to drop a truth bomb so big you may rethink everything you thought you knew about life up until this point (we’re all about the theatrics at Save Your Glass Window Cleaning)
Rainwater is generally pure water, some window cleaning companies (mainly overseas countries that are saturated in rain) actually use it to fuel their water fed poles. (It’s called rainwater harvesting…google it, it’s as a thing) Rainwater is not contaminated, unlike tap water. I won’t bore you with the science behind it but essentially rainwater doesn’t have a bunch of pollutants in the waters that need to be filtered out…just pure water.
So why, you may ask, if this water is so “pure” do your windows appear dirtier after a downpour? That is a fantastic question my inquisitive friend, let Save Your Glass Window Cleaning explain.
After 2 or 3 rains it’ll drag dirt and debris from the structure back onto the glass. If you have screens on your windows and it rains there’s a possibility that a coating from the screen will leak onto the window behind it, causing more spots on the glass. It’s been known in the industry to cause a hydrophobic coating on the glass that it’s in front of. This can sometimes affect the staining of the window and the quality of the cleaning.
So there you have it, my friends, rainwater generally does NOT affect your windows …well your CLEAN windows and screens.
