Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Washington DC, DC Wood Windows for the Best View

Published on

The flowers, the warmth – not many things are better than looking out your wood windows on a sunny, warm day in Washington DC. And with a bit of spring-cleaning, those windows will shimmer, giving 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 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 take advantage of the cloudy day to get your cleaning completed.
  • Receiving 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 clean from 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 put it at the bottom of the window to collect 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 made their way through, it will help shield the frame and finish of your wood windows.
