Washing windows may enhance a home's aesthetic
Homeowners spend time and money finding the perfect window treatments, as well they should - the right blinds can bring a room's decor together. But dull and dirty panes can detract from your beautifully decorated windows.

According to Cleveland.com, squeaky-clean windows make homes look more appealing. And, now that springtime is here, homeowners are calling professional window washers to rid their panes of winter grime.

"Spring is one of our busiest seasons," window washer Bill Mastro told the news source. Because of the warm weather rush, Mastro advises homeowners to call ahead for an appointment. "This time of year, don't wait until the last minute."

Homeowners who don't want to wait for an appointment can wash their windows themselves, but proper tools are paramount. The Family Handyman instructs do-it-yourselfers to purchase a squeegee, scrubber, bucket, razor blade and ladder to ensure a streak-free result. Individuals don't need to invest in special cleaning solutions - the website reports that a teaspoon of dishwashing liquid mixed with a few gallons of water will do the trick.

Once windows are spotless, homeowners can open their blinds and enjoy the crystal-clear view.
