Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Gaithersburg, MD 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 Gaithersburg. 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 something else, 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 seems better to clean with the sun out, the sun can actually dry the cleaning solution before the glass is correctly cleaned, so utilize that cloudy day to get your cleaning done.
  • Getting 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 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 place it at the bottom of the window to catch 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 made their way through, it will help guard the frame and finish of your wood windows.
