Why is it important to seal glass?

Window cleaners alike know the dreaded question:

“And while you’re at it, could you get those stains on my shower door?”

Now, this is a request you probably don’t want to hear customers make. You may worry that it’s risky, time-consuming, requires chemical experimentation, and runs a high bill, which, if the customer is dissatisfied, may not go well for you.

Well, we want to ask, why does it have to be this way? We at Window Cleaning Resource know that it doesn’t!

So, we compiled a list of fantastic products that not only brought our customers stacks of referrals from happy clients but expanded their list of services. These techniques made them more credible and increased their income per hour.

Glass Sealant Kits

When it comes to cleaning windows, sealing glass may not be the first thing that comes to mind. However, it is one of the most important steps, especially after deep-cleaning hard water stains.

Why? If you don’t seal the glass, the chances of the hard water bonding to it again is very high, and could lead to another vigorous cleaning session, which may be unsuccessful. Glass surfaces are pitted with microscopic indentations that dirt and minerals cling to.

Once a glass sealant is applied, your beautiful work gets locked in. It also makes maintenance cleaning a breeze, as it deters hard water to bond to the glass again.

To help get you started, the experts at Window Cleaning Resource gathered some fantastic products needed for sealing glass to create long-term protection from deep hard water stains.

Nanovations Kits

The Nanovations Shower Protect Plus Kit comes with everything you’ll need to perfect your shower door cleaning process. With 4 lint-free cloths, a microfiber wipe, a pair of rubber gloves, 2 non-abrasive cleaning pads, a foam cleaning holder with velcro attachment, a deep cleaner, 4 packets of CL-50 Glass Surface Preparation, and 8 packets of NG 1010 Glass Coating, you will be prepared to clean, protect, and maintain your customers’ glass surfaces. The ultra-thin coating repels water, limescale, soap scum, and mineral-dense hard water and maintains crystal-clear glass for up to 5 years.

It is always good to inform your customers that if they give their shower doors a brief, daily cleaning with a simple towel or squeegee, stains and buildup will be reduced tenfold. Not only will this save their shower doors from accumulating hard water stains, but it will save them some money, too. Additionally, it is likely that if they choose not to follow a daily regimen, the hard water spots may build up even more, which would lead to more permanent damage, thus costing them an entire new door.

The scratch-resistant hard coating in this super-protective kit guarantees that contaminants will be repelled, making it easy for the customer or window cleaner to maintain the spot-free shine.

The Nanovations Vision Protect Professional Application Kit utilizes protective nanotechnology on all glass that repels water, dirt, snow, and ice, keeping it crystal clear for longer. This Nanovations kit is great for everything from exterior glass to solar panels, to windshields or shower glass. After allowing the sealant to cure, its scratch-resistant formula smoothens the glass, making it easier to clean. The unique, inorganic technology is a 6-7 on the Mohs scale of hardness, and was engineered to provide your glass with longevity and UV resistance.

Easy to apply, this kit includes surface preparation and glass coating treatment for up to 1411 square feet. You can also use this on vehicles, so it is an excellent add-on for pressure washers that clean trucks. Each cost-effective kit provides enough coverage for 12 complete automobiles, 25 windshields, or 15 semi-tractor windshields and side windows. To top it off? It is made and manufactured in the USA.

Glass Sealants

The applied-sealer JFlint Mr. Hard Water Protectant Sealant protects a variety of glass surfaces from mineral deposit buildup and hard water stains. This sealant is safe to use on windows, shower doors, mirrors, metals, tile, fiberglass porcelain and plastic.

Mr. Hard Water Sealer protects shower enclosures against soap scum build-up, as well as etching from hard water stains. The sealer makes regular maintenance cleaning fast and easy, as it evens out the outermost surface of the glass. This product easily applies with a foam applicator, microfiber towel, or absorbent sponge. Follow the instructions as directed, and fear recurring hard water stains no-more!

The Clean-X Invisible Shield Glass & Surface Coating is an ultra-thin polymer coating that bonds to the microscopic pores of the glass, forming a protective shield from mineral runoff, hard water deposits, waterborne dirt and pollutants, and other stains. It works wonders on glass, porcelain, plastics, polished metals, and natural marble. This unique formula creates an optically clear, hard surface liquid coating. Apply with a soft-padded cloth to a clean, dry surface. 1 pint covers approximately 500 square feet.

The JFlint Mr. Hard Water Pro Shower Door and Window Kit makes tough stain-removal a cinch and makes for a great add-on to your window cleaning business. Easy and effective stain removal is made possible with the Mr. Hard Water Protectant Sealant in conjunction with the buffer and JFlint's aggressive pads. This combination of tools is an essential asset to your business and for customers’ maintenance of their glass.
