The flowers, the warmth – only a couple of things are better than looking out your wood windows on a perfect, warm day in Long Island. And with a little spring-cleaning, those windows will shine, providing you great views and the great feeling of a clean home.
Whether they are wood windows or another material, no one enjoys streaky windows or dust bunnies around their windowsills. Keep in mind these few cleaning tips when you start your spring-cleaning:
- While it’s more enjoyable to clean
with the sun out, the sun could actually dry the cleaning solution
before the glass is correctly cleaned, so use that cloudy day to get your cleaning
- Having 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 makes
sure the excess drips don’t head to the part of your wood windows that
hasn’t been cleaned yet.
- Take an old towel or paper towel and lay it at
the bottom of the window to catch 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
