The flowers, the warmth – few things are better than looking out your wood windows on a sunny, warm day in Denver. And with a bit of spring-cleaning, those windows will shine, leaving you great views and the great feeling of a clean home.
Whether they are wood windows or another material, 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 can actually dry the cleaning solution
before the glass is properly cleaned, so take
advantage of the 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 it looks.
- Always start 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.
- Take 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 got through,
it will help guard the frame and finish of your wood
