Recently, while window cleaning for a customer, we came across a problem that some homeowners might share: stubborn calcium build-up on their outside window panes.
In the following example it had a very obvious reason: The homeowner’s sprinklers were hitting the lower part of the window and glass every day.
The glass needed special attention due to the serious calcium buildup plus the bottom part of the window frame had started rotting.
Here is the window that has been constantly hit by irrigation water. You can see the cloudy appearance of the glass due to the calcium buildup on its surface.
Also, the second problem is obvious: the wooden frame has started rotting.
We treated the glass with our acid cleaning agent. This has nicely removed the calcium stains from the surface. However, the damage to the frame from irrigation water hitting the window on a daily basis is beyond repair.
Naturally the customer has adjusted his sprinkler heads and with this the frame can now dry out.
Hopefully this will never be your problem! However, I felt that we can all learn from other people's mistakes and with that, I leave you to check your own irrigation system for similar problems if any :-)
Wishing you a wonderful weekend and keep me posted in case you have any pressure washing and window-cleaning needs.
