Extra Clean specializes in glass restoration service and hard water stain removal in addition to a “soap and water” cleaning of the windows at your home in DC/MD/VA.
The most common form of glass damage occurring in residences is glass corrosion from hard water stains. Hard water stains or ‘water spots’ are formed when evaporated water, usually from sprinkler systems, leaves calcium, magnesium and other mineral deposits on your windows.
95% of all hard water stains are stage one glass corrosion and can be removed with our hard water stain removal treatment. The other 5% occur when untreated hard water stains have caused permanent etching in the glass. To prevent this from happening to your windows, hard water stain removal needs to be performed on a regular basis.
Our highly skilled technicians can restore any type of glass at your commercial or residential property for only a fraction of the cost of replacement. Not only do scratches obstruct visibility, they also create structural stresses in glass. By having Extra Clean remove glass scratches, clear visibility and structural soundness are restored while saving time and money.
Extra Clean offers 3 levels of glass restoration service
1. Window Cleaning Service using a “soap & water” solution with a squeegee to remove surface dirt. This of course includes the wiping down of the window frame, sill, and track area.
2. Glass Enhancement Service which includes the use of pumice; cerium oxide or some other specialty cleaning product. These cleaners can be applied with either manpower and special pad applicators or with variable speed buffers, all depending on the severity of the calcium (efflorescence); acid rain, metal rust, inter alia on the glass surface.
3. Glass Restoration Service which requires the use of buffers along with polishing compounds for removing scratches and acid damage of any size and depth from glass.
We will always perform a sample cleaning (at no charge) of the window that provides the “greatest challenge” and establish that window as the “work standard” for the entire job.
Following your glass restoration service, we recommend to seal the glass to extend its life and prohibit any of the aforementioned substances to bond to the glass surface.
