DIY Spring Window Cleaning

window cleaning

Use this spring cleaning season to give your windows a good cleaning, inside and out.

Your home is probably the biggest investment you’ll make in your life, full of other smaller investments, like, oh…we don’t know…replacement windows! With any investment, big or small, you’ll want to take care of it to make the money you put into it worthwhile. Just like you wouldn’t let your car accumulate layers of visible dirt, you shouldn’t let your windows get that dirty either. As you’re writing your spring cleaning list in the coming weeks, don’t forget about window cleaning as an essential part of your home maintenance plan.

Let the Light Shine In

One of windows most functional purposes is to allow natural light into a building. Natural light has been proven to have many psychological benefits and even some physical health perks. However, when a window is caked with weeks’, months’, or even years’ worth of dirt and grime, that light is obstructed. Even if your window doesn’t look that dirty, it’s possible that the dirt built up slowly and evenly so that you never noticed the difference. In addition to the benefits of natural light, having clean windows sets a good impression of you has a clean homeowner, and can boost curb appeal, while we’re sure you can see how the opposites would be true. The bottom line is that if you haven’t cleaned your windows in a while, it’s a good idea to give it a go.

Cleaning Window Panes

Window washing has a bad reputation for being a tedious and laborious chore, but we promise it isn’t all that bad. Plus, the benefits of clean windows drastically outweigh the short period of work you’ll have to put in. For a step-by-step process for window cleaning, we’ll refer you to this handy post from earlier on in our blog.

Cleaning Window Frames

Not to be neglected in the window cleaning conversation, window frames and sills can also be guilty of collecting lots of dirt and grime. From dust and dead bugs to the general dirt of living life in your home, it’s good to clean off the inside of your windows every so often too. Surfaces that can slip under the cleaning radar, such as window sills and frames, are prime spots for allergens to gather and cause you sneezy misery along with whatever spring allergies you may have to deal with soon. Here’s yet another handy blog post on cleaning different types of window frames.
