Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Westerly, Rhode Island 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 Westerly. And with a bit of spring-cleaning, those windows will shimmer, 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 these few cleaning tips when you begin your spring-cleaning:

  • While it seems better to clean with the sun out, the sun could actually dry the cleaning solution before the glass is correctly cleaned, so use 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.
  • 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, ensure you dry the windowsills with a cloth. If any drips got 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 a bit of TLC.
