Cleaning Windows

Window cleaning is a chore that few people look forward to - and it usually takes the entire day. Just when your windows are crystal clear, it rains a few days later, leaving behind dirty rain marks and you wondering why you even bothered cleaning them in the first place.

Your Window Cleaning Options

Realistically, you only have three options when it comes to cleaning glass windows:

  • Bite the bullet and clean them yourself. You don't want to, but it's a basic responsibility of home ownership. Cleaning your windows yourself means that you will get the job done properly, even if it does eat into your precious leisure time.
  • Hire a window cleaning service. Bring in the professionals - but how professional are they really? Window cleaning services can be very expensive and you aren't guaranteed that their level of service will meet your expectations.
  • Forget about window cleaning. Self-cleaning glass is the latest innovation in glass from leading manufacturer Pilkington. While self-cleaning glass is a little pricier than normal glass, you'll find that it will save you money in the long run.

Pilkington Activ™ - Clean Windows without the Effort

Pilkington Activ is a self-cleaning glass with a special coating that uses a dual action process to self-clean. Firstly, the sun's rays interact with the coating to break down the organic dirt on your window and then the dirt is washed away when it rains. The coating makes the rainwater run down the window in a sheeting action, so that minimal rain marks are left behind on the window.

Window cleaning has never been easier! Pilkington Activ™ Self-Cleaning Glass can also be combined with some of the company's other innovative products, guaranteeing that you get excellent value for money. Pilkington Activ™ Blue or Neutral combines solar control properties with self-cleaning, helping you keep your house cool and your windows clean.
