Part of your spring cleaning routine most likely includes washing your windows. What about window sills? It is so easy to forget about this part of a window but it should also be thoroughly cleaned.
What is the best way to wash a window sill and what should be used to get the job done? Here are a few tips that may help you with your window washing projects, specifically window sills:
- First you may want to get some sort of soft rag or bristled brush to free away any of the loose dust and dirt trapped on the window sill.
- Next you will want to wash the window sill with warm water and soap. After a thorough cleaning, rinse the window sill with clean warm water. (For those hard to clean places like small corners, using a toothbrush is very effective with getting rid of that stubborn dirt and grime.)
*If your window contains a natural finish, consider using a wood cleaner and dusting with paper towel.
What about nasty mold from a window sill? This can build very easily if not washed at least once a week. Use some sort of mildew spray and let it stand for about 10 minutes or so. Take a sponge or cloth to wipe the mold away.
It is highly advised to call a professional to take care of a recurring mold problem. Mold can cause health problems so it’s very important to get this taken care of.
