The flowers, the warmth – not many things are better than looking out your wood windows on a nice, warm day in Springfield. And with a small amount of spring-cleaning, those windows will shimmer, providing you great views and the great feeling of a clean home.
Whether they are wood windows or something else, no one enjoys streaky windows or dust bunnies around their windowsills. Keep in mind a couple cleaning tips when you begin your spring-cleaning:
- While it’s more enjoyable to clean
with the sun out, the sun can actually dry the cleaning solution
before the glass is properly cleaned, so use that cloudy day to get your cleaning
- Receiving the best results means cleaning both the inside
and outside of your wood windows. It’s well worth the time when you see how good it will look.
- Always begin at the top when washing your windows.
Doing so ensure the drips stay out of the area of your wood windows that
hasn’t been cleaned yet.
- Take an old towel or paper towel and put it at
the bottom of the window to gather any drips to keep them from
puddling on the frames.
- Once you have cleaned your windows, make sure you dry
the windowsills with a cloth. If any drips got through,
it will help protect the frame and finish of your wood
