Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Memphis, Tennessee Wood Windows for the Best View

Published on

The flowers, the warmth – only a couple of things are better than looking out your wood windows on a sunny, warm day in Memphis. And with a little 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 wants streaky windows or dust bunnies around their windowsills. Keep in mind a few of these cleaning tips when you kickoff your spring-cleaning:

  • While it seems better to clean with the sun out, the sun could actually dry the cleaning solution before the glass is appropriately cleaned, so utilize that cloudy day to get your cleaning over with.
  • 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 clean 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 place it at the bottom of the window to gather 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 guard the frame and finish of your wood windows.
