Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Baltimore, MD 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 Baltimore. 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 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 can actually dry the cleaning solution before the glass is appropriately cleaned, so take advantage of the cloudy day to get your cleaning over with.
  • Getting the best results means cleaning both the inside and outside of your wood windows. It’s well worth the time when you see how it looks.
  • 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.
  • Utilize an old towel or paper towel and put it at the bottom of the window to gather any drips to keep them from getting on the frames.
  • Once you have cleaned your windows, make sure 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.
