Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Terre Haute, IN Wood Windows for the Best View

The flowers, the warmth – few things are better than looking out your wood windows on a sunny, warm day in Terre Haute. 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 material, no one enjoys streaky windows or dust bunnies around their windowsills. Keep in mind a few of these cleaning tips when you start your spring-cleaning:

  • While it’s more enjoyable to clean with the sun out, the sun could actually dry the cleaning solution before the glass is correctly cleaned, so take advantage of the cloudy day to get your cleaning over with.
  • 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 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 catch any drips to keep them from puddling 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.

No matter if they are replacement windows or windows original to your home, windows need a little TLC.
