The flowers, the warmth – few things are better than looking out your wood windows on a nice, warm day in Rochester. And with a little spring-cleaning, those windows will shimmer, 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 a few of these cleaning tips when you begin your spring-cleaning:
- While it seems better to clean
with the sun out, the sun may 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 keeps your drips heading to your wood windows that
hasn’t been cleaned yet.
- Utilize an old towel or paper towel and put 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 slipped through,
it will help protect the frame and finish of your wood
