Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Northern Virginia, VA Wood Windows for the Best View

The flowers, the warmth – few things are better than looking out your wood windows on a sunny, warm day in Northern Virginia. And with a bit 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 likes streaky windows or dust bunnies around their windowsills. Keep in mind a couple 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 correctly cleaned, so utilize that 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.
  • Utilize an old towel or paper towel and lay it at the bottom of the window to collect 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 got through, it will help protect the frame and finish of your wood windows.
