Dealing with a Dirty and Scratched Window Glass
Windows hold several roles. They add character and style to the home exterior, and they contribute to natural lighting and ventilation. Moreover, windows are installed for security and protection against external elements that can enter and disturb homes and their inhabitants.
Some of these elements include the unwanted light and noise from outside, as well as the insects and animals that can go into houses and cause trouble. Of course, the lock features of windows are also designed to prevent burglars and trespassers. Apart from these, they shield up home interiors from the dirt and dust particles that the air carries and from dampness when it rains. Because of that, windows naturally get all the scratches and dirt.
Nevertheless, there are other factors that can cause dirt and scratches besides dust particles, snow, and rain. For one, the installation process itself can cause slight damage to window surfaces. Improper use of mortar, caulking, and stucco can create scrapes, and incorrect cleaning off of paint accidentally sprayed on the surface can also bring about similar effects.
Frequent contacts of people and animals with the window panes can cause damage, too. That is because nails and paws can easily scratch on the façade of windows and other materials like newspaper, jewelry, and watches can unwittingly bring about the same results. Of course, inappropriate window cleaning procedures such as the use of abrasive brushes, strong detergents, and unnecessary chemicals can scratch the window materials as well.
Because most of these window-scratching factors are unavoidable, it is a must to double window protection for it to function more effectively and longer. One way of doing so is through the installation of glass plastic films or sheets on the surface of the windows to shield them against external elements. These are made of durable polyvinyl chloride components that can block dusts and harsh particles without diminishing the window’s purpose.
These glass plastic sheets are designed to be clear or transparent. Therefore, window glasses can still let light in and allow viewing without compromising protection. Although these sheets cannot provide permanent defense, they can last for months, enough to shield window glasses for certain seasons.
Because these glass plastic films are easy-to-use, even homeowners themselves can apply these on their window surfaces. The self-adhesive features of the material will allow it to stay effortlessly in place upon installation. Expert homebuilders recommend that these glass protectors be applied after thoroughly cleaning casements or after window reinstallation projects.
