Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Raleigh, North Carolina Wood Windows for the Best View

Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Raleigh, North Carolina Wood Windows for the Best View

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

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

  • While it’s nicer to clean with the sun out, the sun could actually dry the cleaning solution before the glass is appropriately cleaned, so take advantage of the 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 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.
  • Use an old towel or paper towel and place 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 shield the frame and finish of your wood windows.
