  • Residential Roofing Indianapolis

    The roof is arguably the most important part of the home; in fact, without a roof, a house can hardly be called a home. The roof provides comfort, security, and safety from the elements. So if the roof ends up with any kind of damage, it could end up compromising all of the qualities that the roof is supposed to provide. The roof is particularly susceptible to wear and tear since it is exposed to the elements, and in Indianapolis, those elements can be varied and unpredictable.

Regular cleaning can prolong the life of your windows and keep them looking beautiful all year round. When performing this task, one essential thing to consider is the quality of water you will be using. For instance, hard water is great for drinking but it is not ideal for cleaning.

What Is Water Quality?

The chemical, biological and physical composition of water determines its quality. Some of the most common pollutants you can find in untreated water include viruses, bacterial, salts and pesticides. Experts use indicators to test water quality, such as color, odor, pH, taste, and alkalinity. They also check the water for the presence of bacteria, metals and organic matter. While different government agencies limit the contamination level in drinking water, certain amounts are still permitted in tap water.

How Does It Affect Window Cleaning?

Total dissolved solids (TDS) refer to organic and inorganic materials in water. When there are high levels of TDS, spots and streaks can form on window glass. To ensure streaks don’t appear on your windows, the water quality level should not be over 20 parts per million (ppm). Moreover, if cleaning your windows is not enough to restore their appearance or they have damage, it’s best to invest in new ones. Whether you need a new roof or windows, you can count on Universal Roofing & Exteriors.

Moreover, soft water is more effective for cleaning windows than hard water. It is because they don’t require as much soap for thorough window cleaning. Another benefit of soft water is that it won’t cause spots or streaks to appear on the glass surface. The fewer deposits build up in your windows, the longer they will last.
