Window Hard Water Stain Removal – St. Paul, Minnesota (MN)


Windows Hard Water Stain Removal Service

Gutter Cleaning Minneapolis, St. Paul MN
Do your windows look cloudy or spotty? Or maybe your property’s windows still look dirty and dull, even after a recent window cleaning?

If so, hard water stains are a likely culprit. A common issue on improperly maintained windows, hard water stains result from mineral deposits that occur naturally. When water evaporates after cleaning or a rain storm, minerals cling to the glass, and if they aren’t removed, they can etch or build up on the window. Over time, hard water stains become exceedingly difficult to remove.

The good news: Your windows CAN be restored, and these tough stains can be removed. Looking for a window cleaning company that can help? Call Clean and Clear. We specialize in hard water stain removal in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.

Don’t even think about replacing your property’s windows. Let us help you restore that brand-new window shine and get rid of stains, spots, window scum and cloudiness for good! Call now for a free estimate or to request more information about our service.

What Is a Hard Water Stain?

Water supplies for municipalities in the Twin Cities area typically contain some mineral content. When water that has a higher-than-average mineral content – so-called “hard water” – evaporates on glass, many of these minerals cling and stay behind. Most commonly, window spots are caused by calcium, but other minerals like sodium and magnesium can also be problematic.

Regularly having your windows professionally cleaned is a sure-fire way to prevent spotting. But if these minerals are allowed to sit on the window long-term, the minerals will etch and “bake into” the glass, becoming more and more difficult to remove. In fact, due to a chemical reaction, hard water stains actually become a part of the glass. Some common causes of hard water stains include:

  • Irrigation or sprinklers spraying on the windows
  • Irregular window cleaning
  • Gutter and water leaks
  • Using excessively hard water for cleaning (e.g. in Minnetonka, water measures 18 grains per gallon (gpg) which is 4x above the average)
  • Acid Rain
  • Metal oxidation from metal window frames and components

Ultimately, hard water stains look like whiteish clouds on the exterior glass that can resemble soap scum. At first, they can be removed using household cleaning supplies. But if they’ve been allowed to sit, you’ll likely need a professional window cleaning company to remove the stains.
