Do you know what hard water stains are? They’re fair dinkum water stains!
Water stains can appear on any glass where there is a regular stream of water touching the glass or flowing over it. This occurs when the minerals in water slowly deposit themselves on the glass over time and build up to leave stains just like in this picture. Not only does it look unsightly but the longer you leave it the bigger the job it becomes to get rid of it. Normal window washing by professional windows cleaners using an applicator and squeegee will not solve this problem.
So how can these marks be cleaned away?
You basically have two options:
1. Buy a do it yourself product. There are several well-known brands. You apply the paste to the glass. The glass then needs to be polished. This process can be very time consuming and often the results are disappointing.
2.The second option is to contact professional water stain removers. We have recommended the Water Stain Doctor before with good results.
One last caution: glass polishing can be expensive so get a few quotes.
So if you see any signs of a water stain developing on your building it is best to get a professional cleaner onto it straight away, and regular maintenance can help you avoid the problem altogether.
