Crown Molding Spring Cleaning Tips

Here are spring cleaning tips you should follow when cleaning your crown molding.

Crown molding can be a beautiful feature of any room in which you install it. With that said, it will only retain its beauty with proper cleaning. Now that spring has begun, it’s the perfect time to get various spring cleaning tasks done, which should include the cleaning of your molding. Here are spring cleaning tips you should follow when cleaning your crown molding.

Restore Your Baseboards

Many people clean their floors regularly, but something else you should do is clean the baseboards that are directly above the flooring. These baseboards accumulate quite a lot of dirt, meaning that getting them clean can make a world of difference.

Start by vacuuming up dirt while also making use of a brush attachment. Afterwards, take a mixture of water, vinegar, and dish soap, and apply it to a cloth or sponge so you can wipe more stubborn stains off of your baseboards. For tighter crevices, cotton swabs and toothbrushes can be helpful.

Advice for Cleaning Ceiling Molding

When you think about cleaning crown molding on your ceiling, it can feel like an intimidating task. Fortunately, it’s much easier than it may seem. Just like with baseboards, you can start cleaning ceiling molding by using the brush attachment of a vacuum cleaner. A soft paint brush or feather duster would also work in this situation.

After that, you need about a gallon of warm water. In this water, add one cup of ammonia, one-fourth cup of baking soda, and half a cup of white vinegar. This solution should get mixed thoroughly, then poured into a spray bottle so you can then apply the mixture in small doses. Using this solution in excess can discolor the crown molding. After you’re finished, take a soft cloth and dry everything down.

Wipe Down Your Window Molding

Sometimes, it can feel like a challenge to clean your window molding. That’s because this molding is exposed to all sorts of messes regularly, like dirt, handprints, and moisture. Depending on the mess, your cleaning approach should be different.

Water spots should be addressed with either distilled water, bottled water, or rubbing alcohol that’s applied by using a spray bottle. A towel should also be used to dry everything down after cleaning.

Dirt and grime can be cleaned by applying a mixture of water and soap. For more stubborn messes, you should use a sponge with a mixture of water and vinegar instead. In a similar manner, dry everything with a towel after you’re done.
