Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Traverse City, MI 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 Traverse City. And with a small amount 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 these few cleaning tips when you begin your spring-cleaning:

  • While it’s more enjoyable to clean with the sun out, the sun may actually dry the cleaning solution before the glass is correctly cleaned, so take advantage of the cloudy day to get your cleaning over with.
  • Having 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 ensure the drips stay out of the area 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 gather any drips to keep them from getting 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.
