The Science Behind Deionized Water
Deionized water is also known as demineralized water. It is water that has its mineral ions removed (chlorine, fluoride, haloacetic acids (HAAs) and other impurities) through a filter and reverse osmosis process. The science behind deionized water for window cleaning lies in its unique properties and the manor it interacts with glass surfaces.
- Minimizing Mineral Deposits: Tap water contains minerals that will leave behind deposits when it evaporates on glass surfaces. These deposits, commonly known as water spots or streaks, can be unsightly and difficult to remove. Deionized water, with its reduced mineral content, significantly reduces the likelihood of these deposits forming, resulting in cleaner and clearer windows.
- Improved Cleaning Power: Deionized water is a highly effective cleaning agent due to its high purity. It acts as a solvent and can effectively dissolve and remove dirt, grime, pollutants, and organic compounds. Since it lacks minerals, it doesn't leave behind any residue after cleaning,
- Enhanced Wetting Ability: Deionized water has a very low surface tension compared to tap water. This property allows it to spread more evenly and penetrate the nooks and crannies of window surfaces, reaching areas that might otherwise be difficult to clean. It enables better coverage and effectively helps in removing dirt particles from the glass.
- Electrostatic Cleaning: Another benefit of using deionized water for window cleaning is its ability to neutralize static charges on the glass surface. Static charges can attract dust and particles, making windows appear dirty, even after cleaning. Deionized water, being electrically neutral, reduces the buildup of static charges,
Deionized water is highly effective for cleaning all glass surfaces. Combined with our water-fed poles and high-quality brushes,
