How to Maintain Your Blinds To Increase Their Lifespan?
Once you have chosen a new set of blinds from our catalogue, it is a good idea to read through the information below. There, you will find valuable information on how to maintain your new blinds or shutters, ensuring you can enjoy them for many years to come. So, without further ado, here is some essential information you need to know.
How Do You Clean Shutters?
Out of all vertical window dressings, shutters are usually the biggest investment. Because of that, it is important to take good care of them. Since most shutters are made from wood, be sure to adjust your cleaning method for this material.
Wood does not cope well with too much moisture, so you should never use too much water to clean these shutters. Instead, use a damp cloth with an appropriate cleaning product for wood and always wipe up any excess moisture. Also, only use a damp cloth if there is a substantial stain that is difficult to remove with a dry cloth.
When you are dealing with persistent stains, you can use a combination of water and mild detergent. However, you should never use anything more than a damp cloth. So, place your cloth in the cleaning mixture and wring it out before using it on the shutters.
What Is The Best Way To Clean Venetian Blinds?
If you have Venetian blinds, you are in luck because these are some of the easiest blinds to clean. Of course, this does not mean they cannot attract dust. To avoid an accumulation of dust, simply clean your blinds with a damp cloth regularly.
For easier cleaning, it is a good idea to close your blinds before you dust or wipe them. Once you have dusted them in the closed position, open them up and dust again to remove any remaining dust.
To dust, you can use a simply dry microfibre cloth. However, if there are some stains, you may want to use a damp cloth with a mild detergent. If your blinds need a serious maintenance, simply remove them, and place them on the floor for easier cleaning.
How To Clean Vertical Blinds?
Venetian blinds may be easy to clean, but the easiest blinds to clean are vertical blinds. The reason why is simple, as vertical blinds are far less susceptible to dust accumulation than horizontal blinds. Of course, this does not mean they do not attract dust at all. So, you should wipe them with a microfibre cloth at least once a week.
When you clean vertical blinds, be sure to look at the rail as well. While vertical blinds are less susceptible to dust accumulation, dust can still get trapped on the rail in large amounts if it is not cleaned regularly. If you do not have the appropriate cleaning product for the rail, you can easily use baby wipes instead.
With vertical blinds, never use any tools to dry them after a thorough wash. Using things like a hair dryer could cause damage to the material. So, leave your vertical blinds to dry naturally to increase their lifespan.
What Is The Best Way To Clean Roman Blinds?
Roman blinds are some of the harder blinds to clean. Instead of a microfibre cloth, your first port of call will be a vacuum cleaner. Simply remove any dust from the roman blinds by using a soft brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner.
If you encounter any stains on your roman blinds, be sure not to use any fabric stain removers. Most products will cause discolouration on your roman blinds, but you can use something as simple as fragrance-free baby wipes for stains.
Remember that fabric can be susceptible to a variety of smells. If you find that your roman blinds have absorbed any unwanted smells, there is a simple trick you can use. First, take the roman blinds off the rail. Next, sprinkle your roman blinds with some baking soda. Baking soda is known to absorb unpleasant odours and smells, so this is a simple trick to remove those. Once the baking soda has been left on the fabric for 24 hours, remove the baking soda with your vacuum cleaner.
