Does the view through your window look like a forest fire is blazing outside? That’s not smoke. It’s window hazing. Hazing on glass is a common issue. It’s causes are many.

 What creates hazing on glass?

Pollution – Car exhaust, factories, and other burning of fossil fuels create pollutants that gather on the glass.

Minerals and metallic ions – Rain water is high in mineral content. Over time, these minerals build up and produce spots of haze.

Water on windowGlass corrosion – While normally created to withstand corrosion, alkali from the glass can get stripped away by acids in water, leading to eventual corrosion and hazing on glass.

  • Broken window seals – When the window was created, air or gas was sealed around the edges of the window to form insulation. If this seal is broken, moisture can now get between the panes and create hazing on the glass.
  • Very hot water used to wash windows – Exposure to water of very high temperatures can be damaging, causing significant corrosion and hazing on glass.

Hazing on glass, left unchecked, can lead to further damage. You may even find it necessary to replace the glass. How can you avoid this?

 How To Lift The Fog

Professional window cleaning for hazing on glass is the best option. For the do-it-yourselfer, options do exist.

1. Manually polish the glass – This will be extremely labor intensive. Though time consuming, it may remove much of the haze. However, some minerals and pollutants may require a professional product.

2. Wash with an intensive cleaner – Many products exist to solve the problem of hazing on glass. Winsol offers a glass clearing agent to restore windows. This and other products can be found here.

Clean Me WindowWhen selecting a cleaner, be sure to research what it is designed to clean. Some are more effective with water spotting, others are formulated to cut through grease and tar residues, and others are best to eliminate alkaline residues. Which product is best for you will depend on your location and what has caused the window hazing.

 3. Replace aluminum screens with fiberglass mesh – The fiberglass should not crease, dent, or unravel. It will provide better protection for your windows to prevent hazing on glass.

Very happy customer here! They were incredibly responsive after I submitted initial inquiry. Website was great...easy to use for getting an estimated quote. They accommodated our schedule, answered all my questions. The guys doing the work were friendly and professional. They took swift action when a couple of touch-ups were needed. They cleaned the entire exterior of the house...looks brand new. Did all of the windows inside and out, including skylights and high window in cathedral ceiling living room), and one hard to reach ceiling fan. Great job, would definitely use this company again!

I would recommend MIKE and this service to any business that needs a reliable and quality company to clenched their windows.

Our window washer was on time and did a very thorough job. One of our storm windows was broken but the company will have the glass replaced and the storm window returned to us. Overall we were very satisfied with the work done.
