Spring Cleaning: Prepping your North Carolina, and Roanoke, Virginia Wood Windows for the Best View

Published on

The flowers, the warmth – not many things are better than looking out your wood windows on a sunny, warm day in North Carolina. And with a small amount of spring-cleaning, those windows will sparkle, providing you great views and the great feeling of a clean home.

Whether they are wood windows or another type, no one wants streaky windows or dust bunnies around their windowsills. Keep in mind a few of these cleaning tips when you kickoff your spring-cleaning:

  • While it’s nicer to clean with the sun out, the sun may actually dry the cleaning solution before the glass is correctly cleaned, so utilize that cloudy day to get your cleaning over with.
  • 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 keeps your drips heading to your wood windows that hasn’t been cleaned yet.
  • Utilize an old towel or paper towel and place it at the bottom of the window to catch any drips to keep them from settling on the frames.
  • Once you have cleaned your windows, ensure you dry the windowsills with a cloth. If any drips made their way through, it will help guard the frame and finish of your wood windows.
