Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Syracuse, NY 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 Syracuse. And with a bit of spring-cleaning, those windows will shine, providing you great views and the great feeling of a clean home.

Whether they are wood windows or something else, no one enjoys streaky windows or dust bunnies around their windowsills. Keep in mind these few cleaning tips when you kickoff 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 properly cleaned, so use that cloudy day to get your cleaning completed.
  • 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 begin at the top when washing your windows. Doing so keeps your drips heading to your wood windows that hasn’t been cleaned yet.
  • Take an old towel or paper towel and put it at the bottom of the window to collect 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 protect the frame and finish of your wood windows.
