Wet plaster on windows

Wet plaster on windows

Wet plaster on windows

Looking for some insight...

Severe water damage to a commercial warehouse (pipe burst). Portions of a plaster ceiling fell onto insulated glass panels below (see attached pic file).

I am looking for guidance on how to clean the glass when remnants of plaster in the form of wet streaks and spotting are present on the glass panels. My concern is that the glass may be scratched if attempted to clean. Are there industry guidelines out there for this cleaning process?

Thank you in advance for any insight.

You might try contacting the Glass Association of North America (GANA). They have information on the proper way to clean architectural glass.
