Looking After Your Glass

Taking Care of Your Windows

The windows in our home are generally taken advantage of. We don’t normally think of them as something that needs to be regularly maintained – as long as we prevent anything from smashing into them then we’re doing our jobs, right?

But that’s not really the case. Like any other part of a house or specific piece of furniture, windows need to be looked after so they can do their job (allowing us to view outside and keeping the cold from entering) for as long as possible.

Here, we’re going to look at what we can do to properly maintain our windows.

Regularly Clean

This might seem like an obvious suggestion, but there are many people who don’t clean their windows on a regular basis, and then they wonder why nothing is visible! They need to be cleaned, but what’s more important is just how they are cleaned.

For the best results, you might consider investing in a squeegee. These will do the job properly, rather than simply moving the dirt around the glass with a wet cloth. Basic products are normally quite inexpensive (under £10), but there are more advanced models out there if you’re fully committed to the task at hand.

Get yourself some window cleaner – everyone has their favourite brand, find out that works well for you and stick with it. Fill a bucket with some warm water and mix in some of the detergent, before dipping in your squeegee and scraping it across the glass. Note – if you’re doing the inside of the window, put down a towel first to prevent the window sill becoming wet.

Alternatively, you could just employ a window cleaner to service your glass, and you won’t have to worry about anything else.

Frames and Hinges

It’s not just the glass that needs maintaining, however, you need to pay attention to the window in its entirety. The frames are easy to clean, but can build up a lot of dust over time so make sure you do it whenever necessary. Basic wood polish and a cloth will work here just fine.

Hinges can be a little more difficult, as there’s more to it than simply cleaning. Over time they tend to wear out quicker than any other section of the window, so it’s a good idea to occasionally oil them so that the friction doesn’t cause any damage.

Scratches

If you see a scratch on the window, no matter where it is and no matter how big or deep, it’s important that you take care of it. Long-term, an untreated scratch can lead to large problems – and you could find yourself needing to replace the glass completely.

Scratch Repair offers a scratch removal service that will restore your glass to optimum condition. You won’t have to worry about your windows looking untidy or becoming damaged, our methods are proven to bring positive results.

Tips to Avoid Scratching Your Glass

Removing Paint from your Windows without Scratching

Window scratches can be a real nuisance for homeowners, businesses and public buildings alike. They make the place look tacky and unprofessional, while they can also be the beginning of further problems such as cracking.

It’s even more frustrating when scratches are the result of something that is completely avoidable. One such instance is when someone accidentally get paint on the glass, and then feel as if they can simply remove it by scraping it off.

But that’s not the case. If you want to remove paint from your windows without scratching the glass, then this is what you need to do.

(First of all, you can avoid this issue entirely by covering your windows with a plastic sheet when painting nearby)

Window Cleaning

Grab a hold of your usual window cleaning product, a friction reducer and a bucket of water. Pour the reducer and the cleaning product into the bucket, applying a similar ratio to what you would use when washing the dishes, and you’ll have everything you need to create a nice slippery surface.

Scraping from dry glass is almost guaranteed to scratch, so apply the liquid solution you’ve just created before you even go near the window with a blade.

Prepare to Scrape

First of all, you need to get hold of a good quality window scraper, and test it out on an area of the window (or another window entirely) that you don’t necessarily mind getting scratched. It shouldn’t do anyway, but you might not want to risk it in the location of the paint.

Your blade needs to be in excellent condition in order to be effective. You can look to see what sort of a state it’s in, but it’s also possible to use your ears. When you use it, there will be a grittier noise than you might expect. If this is the case the stop immediately and look into purchasing a new scraper.

Start Scraping

Now you can begin. Position the razor of your scraper at a 45° angle away from the window’s frame, so as not to damage this in anyway, and the start scraping the paint. If the window is higher than it is wider, use vertical strokes, and if it’s wider than it is higher, use horizontal strokes.

Remember to always lift your blade off the glass in between strokes – to further reduce the chances of scratching. Once everything is done, and all the paint has been completely removed, reapply your cleaning solution one more time and use a squeegee to wipe and dry.

Follow these instructions to the letter and your paint/glass problems will be diminished. No scratches, no problem. However, if you do happen to accidentally scratch your windows then get in touch and we’ll be able to help you out.

Scratch Repair Group Vs Toothpaste

Here at Scratch Repair Group, the scratched glass repair specialists, we’re no stranger to old wives tiles and legends.  However, one fable we come across again and again is that of the infamous tale of toothpaste repairing scratched glass.  The legend says that should one apply enough toothpaste and elbow grease on an area of scratched glass then , hey presto, you can miraculously repair scratched glass.

However , here at Scratch Repair Group, we believe that to repair scratched glass one must use a mix of abrasives, oxides and an awful lot of skill.

So should you fall victim to scratched glass, call the no. 1 glass polishing company in the world and place your faith in tried and tested methods.
