Treatment Process

The Window Medics International process works by removing the visible moisture that has accumulated in the window and dries out the silica desiccant materials in the frame in order to provide full window restoration. Our uniquely designed one-way valve propriety technology is activated by sunlight and when properly installed, allows moisture inside window panes to escape. At the same time, our propriety valve technology works as a true one-way valve and prevents any new moisture from flowing freely into the window cavity.



The first step in the Window Restoration process is to determine the stage of failure your windows are experiencing. Please note that windows are usually installed as a "family of windows", which means all the windows or Insulated Glass Units (IGUs) in your home or building were built around the same time. If one window starts to fail, others may soon follow.

Watch for window fog or condensation in your home, office or commercial building because it is a leading indicator that the "family of windows" in that building are close to the end of their engineered life span.

The Four Stages of Window Failure

Stage 1 - Foggy Window or Window Condensation
When the window reaches a threshold saturation point, moisture becomes visible as fog or condensation resulting from the falling dew point between the glass window panes. In the early stages of visible failure, a mist or fog may appear and disappear through the natural cycle of evaporation.

Stage 2 - River Bedding
As the moisture saturation point is further exceeded, permanent window damage can begin. When moisture becomes permanent, it will run down the surface of the glass using the same path as the first drop. Over 6 - 12 months this cycling activity will physically etch the surface of the window glass leaving a “river bedding” effect. Note that water droplets collect moisture on the ride down the glass surface meaning that riverbed damage is typically more aggressive at the bottom of the window.

Stage 3 - Silica Haze
Silica haze is a destructive chemical growth that can appear within a window even if it has never shown any visible signs of moisture. A closer look at the window will show unusual, snow-flake-like patterns with cross hatch patterns running at a 45 degree angles or a white chalky haze that begins to grow over the surface of the glass.

Stage 4 - Riverbed & Silica Haze
In addition to the dry type silica haze, windows that have been consistently moist or wet will also develop silica haze and an additional damaging effect called "river bedding". The damaged caused by silica haze and river bedding is irreversible if the glass surface has been physically damaged.
