Contrary to some myths, it is not the rain that makes windows dirty. In fact, many window cleaners will garner the power of rain water for window cleaning use. Actually, rainwater is pure, deionized and contains only minimal amounts of minerals and salts. This makes it an excellent solution for glass cleaner because it leaves no streaks.

Windows Dirty After It Rains

Rain does not make windows dirty, dirt does. In fact, rainwater helps to prevent dirt in the air from settling on your windows. Dirt on windows can come from tree pollen, leaf blowers and many other sources. And, when it settles on the glass, it is one uniform layer. However, you probably rarely notice this.

But, after it rains, the raindrops changes the pattern of the dirt. And the result is dirty looking windows.

Dirt from window frames and siding also makes windows dirty after it rains. When rain falls it will make the dirt from your window frames or siding run down onto the windows. Oftentimes, this is the main cause of dirty windows.

Most window cleaners usually just clean your windows. But, West Coast Window Washing services includes cleaning your window frames. We also offer a great soft wash service to ensure your siding won’t ruin your clean windows.
