The flowers, the warmth – few things are better than looking out your wood windows on a sunny, warm day in Portsmouth. And with a little spring-cleaning, those windows will shine, giving you great views and the great feeling of a clean home.
Whether they are wood windows or another type, no one enjoys streaky windows or dust bunnies around their windowsills. Keep in mind these few cleaning tips when you start your spring-cleaning:
- While it’s nicer to clean
with the sun out, the sun can actually dry the cleaning solution
before the glass is appropriately cleaned, so take
advantage of the cloudy day to get your cleaning
- 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 start from 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.
- Use an old towel or paper towel and lay 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 made their way through,
it will help shield the frame and finish of your wood
