Defogging is a solution that is both energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly and economical. More convenient than a traditional replacement of your windows, our restoration process for your fogged windows is done on site by professionals whose goal is to make sure you’re completely satisfied.
The specialist will first drill a hole diagonally (into the top and bottom) of the exterior window. A powerful and environmentally-friendly soap will then be injected into the windows to remove dirt. Next, the specialist will inject an alcohol-based liquid to remove the water and accumulated moisture. Lastly, the technician will install micro-evacuation valves (vents) through the holes to control the humidity level and extend the lifespan of your windows. In this respect, the longer you neglect your fogged windows, the greater the damage will be and the greater the likelihood that they will have to be replaced.
To get the most benefit out of the energy and financial savings that our process will bring you, simply monitor your windows for defects and notify us as soon as possible.
When the sun’s radiant energy hits the window or patio door and creates pressure, our micro vent valve comes into action. This physical phenomenon converts moisture into vapour and automatically expels it outside the window. In this way, all of the moisture is vented over a relatively short period of time. Once the process is complete, not only will your windows and patio doors be impeccable, but the evaporation cycle will continue to take place naturally.
When a window or patio door fogs up, it no longer has a R-value insulation rating. A thermal insulation window and patio door derives its thermal pane value from a 95% dry air space.
Defogging is simple, effective and reliable. Technicians will drill two holes (1/8″ diameter) in one upper and one lower corner of the window or patio door to create a chimney effect.
The window or patio door is cleaned using a special solution to remove the moisture and any dirt that may have infiltrated along with the moisture. Then, defogging automatically takes place, removing the fog through the vent valve located at the top of the window or patio door.
As soon as the fog is removed, your window or patio door will regain its original thermal insulation rating and its R-value, as the dry air space is restored.
