Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Minneapolis, MN 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 Minneapolis. And with a little spring-cleaning, those windows will shimmer, giving you great views and the great feeling of a clean home.

Whether they are wood windows or something else, no one likes 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 can actually dry the cleaning solution before the glass is correctly cleaned, so utilize that cloudy day to get your cleaning done.
  • Receiving 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 keeps your drips heading to your wood windows that hasn’t been cleaned yet.
  • Utilize an old towel or paper towel and put it at the bottom of the window to gather any drips to keep them from settling 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 shield the frame and finish of your wood windows.
