Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Winston-Salem, North Carolina Wood Windows for the Best View

The flowers, the warmth – not many things are better than looking out your wood windows on a nice, warm day in Winston-Salem. And with a little spring-cleaning, those windows will sparkle, leaving 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 a few of these 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 properly cleaned, so use that cloudy day to get your cleaning done.
  • Getting 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 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 catch any drips to keep them from settling on the frames.
  • Once you have cleaned your windows, make sure you dry the windowsills with a cloth. If any drips slipped through, it will help guard the frame and finish of your wood windows.
