Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Norwalk, CT Wood Windows for the Best View

Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Norwalk, CT Wood Windows for the Best View

The flowers, the warmth – few things are better than looking out your wood windows on a nice, warm day in Norwalk. And with a bit 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 type, no one enjoys streaky windows or dust bunnies around their windowsills. Keep in mind a couple cleaning tips when you start your spring-cleaning:

  • While it seems better to clean with the sun out, the sun may actually dry the cleaning solution before the glass is appropriately 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 clean 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 put it at the bottom of the window to catch 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 made their way through, it will help shield the frame and finish of your wood windows.

No matter if they are replacement windows or windows original to your home, windows need a bit of TLC.
