Spring Cleaning: Prepping your South Portland, ME Wood Windows for the Best View

Published on

The flowers, the warmth – only a couple of things are better than looking out your wood windows on a nice, warm day in South Portland. And with a little spring-cleaning, those windows will sparkle, giving you great views and the great feeling of a clean home.

Whether they are wood windows or something else, no one wants streaky windows or dust bunnies around their windowsills. Keep in mind these few cleaning tips when you begin your spring-cleaning:

  • While it’s more enjoyable to clean with the sun out, the sun can actually dry the cleaning solution before the glass is properly cleaned, so take advantage of the 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 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.
  • Use an old towel or paper towel and put it at the bottom of the window to collect any drips to keep them from settling on the frames.
  • Once you have cleaned your windows, make certain you dry the windowsills with a cloth. If any drips slipped through, it will help guard the frame and finish of your wood windows.

No matter if they are replacement windows or windows original to your home, windows need some TLC.
