Scratches on a couple of jobs inside and out!

Hey, so lately on a couple of contracts I seem to leave a bunch of scratches. Nothing horrible, but some of the lines are matching my fanning method. They appear on 2013 commercial windows.

I seem to create scratches on the inside and outside panes of that job and when I’m using both Pulex and Ettore rubber.

Also I’ve cleaned my washer and tried 2 different brands.

I’ve done these windows for years without any issue. The scratches seem to appear out of nowhere on pretty clean panes.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks! :slight_smile:

Not a single clue? Are you touching the glass with the channel as you fan?

Thanks for the reply ! :slight_smile:

Nope, I’m pretty sure I do not do that. I’m not the best Trad guy but i’ve been doing part time windows since 2016…

Well it’s not the rubbers.

Are you sure they are scratches?

Not a 100% sure but pretty sure! :slight_smile:

Could it be a grain of sand? I live in a beach town.

Anyway, I’ll take a pic when I go there next week.


That would be helpful.

I sounds like maybe you are leaving “lines” of water behind , not scratches. Next time you’re at one of these jobs take your finger nail and run it across the scratches.

Do these scratches arch?

Ho boy so sorry for the delay!

Some lines I can erase, other seems to be actual scratches.

This happens at more than one jobs but not all.

I couldn’t take a picture since my phone can’t focus on the window itself.

Thank you so much for your help!

Is this directly on glass? Or on tinted windows? Sometimes when I clean really dirty tinted windows, I have a bit of trouble with bad trail lines from the squeegee. If it is directly on the glass with no tint, some steel wool would most likely take it out, if it’s on tint, you’d might just need to do some extra washing with a good clean soapy water mix.

Just my thoughts from the comments I’ve read here.

Thanks! No it’s only on glass with no tint. I wil try steel wool. :slight_smile:
