Removal of Limescale & Mineral Deposits

Conquer Cloudy Windows: Prokleen’s Ultimate Guide to Removal of Limescale & Mineral Deposits (Seriously, We’ve Got This!)

Let’s be honest, sparkling windows are like a warm hug for your home. But those pesky limescale and mineral deposits? They turn that hug into a cold, clammy handshake. Fear not, fellow Letterkenny residents! Here at Prokleen, we’re not just window-cleaning champions, we’re warriors trained in the ancient art of limescale removal.

Our resident hero, Andrew, recently embarked on a Jedi-level training mission (think squeegees instead of lightsabers!) to master the removal of limescale and mineral deposits. This epic quest for a few days in Dublin with a few of the boys equipped him with the knowledge and techniques to banish even the most stubborn stains, no matter how hard they cling. Anything the builders can add to your glass, we can take away.

Unveiling the Window Foes: Limescale and Mineral Deposits

Limescale and mineral deposits are the result of hard water, which contains high levels of minerals like calcium and magnesium. Over time, these minerals build up on surfaces, leaving behind unsightly stains that are tough to remove.

How do you know if you have hard water?

Oh, Donegal has hard water in places. If your shampoo does not go bubbly easily that is a clue. Too much calcium or magnesium. You can even check online about water quality & hard water.


Imagine calcium carbonate, nature’s chalky sidekick, taking an unwanted staycation on your window. That’s limescale, a white, crusty build-up caused by our beloved (but sometimes mineral-heavy) hard water.

Mineral Deposits: 

Think of these as limescale’s extended family. Calcium, magnesium, iron – they all love to crash at your window party, leaving splotchy souvenirs of their visit.

These uninvited guests aren’t just party poopers; they can:

  • Dim your sparkle: Less light through your windows means less sunshine in your home (boo!).
  • Damage your defenses: Neglected deposits can weaken window frames and seals, leading to bigger problems down the road. Ask Joe McDaid.
  • Become breeding grounds: Stagnant water and minerals create a welcoming haven for unwanted micro-organisms.
