Special care needs to be taken when cleaning high performance glass such as Low E. (Comfortplus, Smart Glass and Sunergy are brand names of Low E glass). These glass products have a very thin coating on the interior glass surface. This hard, durable coating gives the glass improved thermal insulation and solar control performance compared to ordinary clear glass. The coated surface of high performance glass requires alternative cleaning methods to normal glass.

The cleaning of any laminated glass requires special care. Due to the manufacturing process, the glass may have ‘pickup’ on its surface. Pickup is very small deposits of glass particles which are fused to the glass surface. It is important to employ a cleaning method that won’t dislodge these particles such as cleaning with a soft cloth.
