Spring Cleaning: Prepping your Albuquerque, New Mexico Wood Windows for the Best View

The flowers, the warmth – only a couple of things are better than looking out your wood windows on a sunny, warm day in Albuquerque. And with a small amount of spring-cleaning, those windows will sparkle, providing 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 these few cleaning tips when you start 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 appropriately cleaned, so use that cloudy day to get your cleaning done.
  • Having 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 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.
  • Utilize 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 slipped through, it will help guard the frame and finish of your wood windows.
