Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Grand Rapids, MI Wood Windows for the Best View

Published on

The flowers, the warmth – few things are better than looking out your wood windows on a nice, warm day in Grand Rapids. And with a small amount 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 wants streaky windows or dust bunnies around their windowsills. Keep in mind these few cleaning tips when you kickoff your spring-cleaning:

  • While it seems better 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 how it looks.
  • 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 put 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, ensure 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.
