Limescale?? White spots


joely_bland

Recommended Posts

Hi 

I recently posted regarding this and had some suggestions it was limescale buildup. A customer of mine has a front window that seems to have a large area with white spots all over. Despite using some HG Limescale remover as well as numerous other things, it just refuses to come up. I’ve attached some photos but does anyone have anymore suggestions?

Thanks

Have you tried a soft non abrasive pad such as the DA Components bronze wool or Walnut pads? Also white vinegar will sometimes neutralise limescale

Yeah the kilrock stuff is the best stuff I’ve used. If it is really heavy it may need multiple treatments to get it all off, sometimes a scraper. The worst affected windows I’ve seen are windows below overflow pipes where the build up has happened over years, in this case kilrock and a scraper is needed, and the window will need to be charged a lot more than normal.

Hi Steve. Yep I did check and the surface or the glass feels smooth but it definitely looks as if it’s on the pane. Perhaps it isn’t?? Is it possible for limescale to get inbetween?

Not limescale on the inside but if the unit is breaking down you could certainly get a mottled effect on the inside. By the inside I mean it could be on the other side of that pain. Can you feel any roughness at all? You can feel things you can’t see. If you can’t feel anything on the glass then chances are it’s not on the outside.

 I’m just starting out and I’ve been trying to clean my own windows and a few of them have what I’m thinking is limescale on them and I just can’t get them clean. The only thing from list of things I’ve read on this forum that I haven’t tried is Kilrock. No matter what I’ve tried it’s just not coming off. And as I said I’m just trying to start out so this is very discouraging. The water in my area is very hard so I’m thinking a lot of peoples windows are going to be like this. I’m thinking I can’t charge people to clean their windows if when I’m done they still look like this. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I’m pouring my heart and soul into this business to try make it work but I am very disheartened at the moment.
