Storm Window Removing Moisture
The Home Wizard app calculates your ideal home care program to avoid problems with your Storm Windows, but sometimes trouble can still occur. Here are answers to questions about storm window removing moisture.
QUESTION FROM brenda burdette
how do I remove moisture that has developed between the glass on my storm windows
ANSWER FROM HOME-WIZARD
Moisture appearing in between the glass panes in storm windows means that the seal on your storm windows has failed, which not only allows moisture to form, but also it means that the insulation properties of your storm windows has also been reduced.
So unfortunately, this means that the storm windows will need to be replaced.
However, there is a company we've heard about called Crystal Clear Windows, who claim to have developed a cost-effective process for repair storm windows whose seals have failed. We don't have any experience with them, so I can't tell you if their process works, and what kind of firm they are to deal with. But here is their website address: http://www.ccwwi.com/WhoWeAre.html
Also, some people claim to have had temporary success in removing moisture by using a hair dryer on their window. But most of the time the moisture just comes back when the temperature outside gets to a certain point.
Hope this is helpful.
