It Might Rain…Should I Clean My Windows? YES!

Q:  There’s rain in the forecast…what should I do?

A:  Have FISH still clean your windows!

Tut Tut… Looks like Rain

If you think the rain will make your windows look dirty after we clean them… It won’t! 

Rain water, by itself, does not spot your windows.

Rain water is about as pure as water gets.  It contains little or no impurities and, by itself, does not cause your windows to look dirty, spotted or streaked.

On clean glass the “pure” rain water just runs right off, spot free!

So Why Do Windows Spot? 

Windows become dirty from the wind blowing dust and debris against your windows and, over time, it eventually sticks.

Ever notice how when your car’s windows are clean, they stay clean longer?  Conversely, when your car’s windows are dirty they seem to get dirtier faster?

It’s simple: The existing debris catches the new debris and it builds up.

The same “build up” principle applies to store fronts, home windows and glass buildings, resulting in visible Spots.

When “pure” rain water meets debris on an unclean window, it gets caught on the window and dries.  The resulting spots are a mixture of the “pure” water and existing debris.

Cleaning your windows regularly keeps the glass clean and free of debris and allows the “pure” rain water to run off because there’s nothing to cling to.

No Spots.

So, when there’s rain in the forecast, it’s actually smart to have Fish Window Cleaning clean your windows.

When the sun comes out you’ll see Sparkles not Spots!
