Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Idaho, ID Wood Windows for the Best View
The flowers, the warmth – only a couple of things are better than looking out your wood windows on a sunny, warm day in Idaho. 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 type, no one likes streaky windows or dust bunnies around their windowsills. Keep in mind a couple cleaning tips when you kickoff 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 appropriately cleaned, so utilize that cloudy day to get your cleaning done.
- Having the best results means cleaning both the inside and outside of your wood windows. It’s well worth the time when you see the results.
- Always clean from 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.
- Use 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 certain you dry the windowsills with a cloth. If any drips made their way through, it will help protect the frame and finish of your wood windows.
