At Prudential Window Cleaning, we want to be here to give you the best advice on keeping your windows in the best condition and prevent any unnecessary accidents. One thing you may be wondering as you wash your windows is whether or not power washing windows is powerful enough to break the seal. In this guide, we will give you our advice on how to best care for your windows, particularly when power washing.
The hard and fast answer is that, yes, if power washing is done incorrectly, it has the potential to damage windows. So, really our focus should turn to how we can do power washing correctly in order to protect the seal.
Power washing involves the use of high-pressure water spray to remove dirt and grim from surfaces and objects. High pressure can indeed break windows and seals. As a result, moisture will go through and cause fogging between the layers of glass or smoky windows. Older, single pane windows may indeed be broken by the high pressure. Thereafter, the only solution is to replace your windows.
All in all, it is clear that while power washing may indeed be very effective and efficient, it does indeed have downsides. If you choose to use power washing, then you should be careful with pressure levels and adjust the angles. Here at Prudential Window Cleaning, we use a range of window cleaning methods, including the “reach and wash” water-fed pole system to clean windows.
