Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Mt. Pleasant, MI Wood Windows for the Best View

Published on

The flowers, the warmth – few things are better than looking out your wood windows on a sunny, warm day in Mt. Pleasant. And with a small amount of spring-cleaning, those windows will sparkle, giving you great views and the great feeling of a clean home.

Whether they are wood windows or another type, no one wants streaky windows or dust bunnies around their windowsills. Keep in mind a couple cleaning tips when you begin your spring-cleaning:

  • While it’s nicer to clean with the sun out, the sun may actually dry the cleaning solution before the glass is properly cleaned, so take advantage of the 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 it looks.
  • Always start from the top when washing your windows. Doing so ensure the drips stay out of the area of your wood windows that hasn’t been cleaned yet.
  • Utilize an old towel or paper towel and lay 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, ensure you dry the windowsills with a cloth. If any drips slipped through, it will help guard the frame and finish of your wood windows.
