Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Lewes, DE Wood Windows for the Best View

Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Lewes, DE Wood Windows for the Best View

The flowers, the warmth – only a couple of things are better than looking out your wood windows on a sunny, warm day in Lewes. And with a small amount of spring-cleaning, those windows will shimmer, 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 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 may actually dry the cleaning solution before the glass is appropriately cleaned, so use that cloudy day to get your cleaning completed.
  • 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 start from the top when washing your windows. Doing so keeps your drips heading to your wood windows that hasn’t been cleaned yet.
  • Use an old towel or paper towel and place it at the bottom of the window to gather any drips to keep them from getting on the frames.
  • Once you have cleaned your windows, make sure you dry the windowsills with a cloth. If any drips got through, it will help shield the frame and finish of your wood windows.
