Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Albany, NY Wood Windows for the Best View

Published on

The flowers, the warmth – few things are better than looking out your wood windows on a perfect, warm day in Albany. And with a small amount of 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 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 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 the results.
  • 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.
  • Take an old towel or paper towel and lay 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 got through, it will help shield the frame and finish of your wood windows.
