How do you use a window cleaner in a greenhouse?

To clean glass with a window cleaner, you first apply the cleaner to the glass with a spray gun or more automatically with a greenhouse roof cleaner. The product begins to work after 10 to 15 minutes. Do not leave a product in contact with the glass for too long because the glass can dry out and be damaged. Subsequently, you rinse off the product quickly with a powerful jet of water.

Before starting to clean the glass in a greenhouse with window cleaners, always ensure that you have the right personal protective equipment available. The level of protection required is given on the product’s label.

The only purpose of window cleaners is to clean surfaces; they do not disinfect. Use a disinfectant on the area to remove any bacteria, viruses, fungi or viroids present. Tempered glass, diffuse glass or glass with a special coating cannot be cleaned with fluoride-based window cleaners because the fluoride can damage them.

Which window cleaner to choose depends on how contaminated the surface to be cleaned is and the fogging of the cleaner. Our window cleaners remove contaminants like dust, soot and rust from glass and film. We have cleaning agents that use hydrofluoric acid and ammonium bifluoride. These active ingredients determine the fogging effect of the product. Read the article, ‘How to choose a window cleaner‘, to help you make the right choice.
