Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Des Moines, IA 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 Des Moines. And with a small amount of spring-cleaning, those windows will shimmer, giving you great views and the great feeling of a clean home.

Whether they are wood windows or another material, no one likes streaky windows or dust bunnies around their windowsills. Keep in mind a couple 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 properly cleaned, so take advantage of the 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 the results.
  • 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.
  • 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 guard the frame and finish of your wood windows.
