How to Clean your Blinds

We all know how much of a hassle some blinds can be to clean, to the point where can we go months and months without doing it! But, did you know it’s not all that hard to keep them clean – here are our tips on cleaning your blinds.

  • If you have timber blinds, avoid using water or spray cleaner on an oiled finish, but a lacquered finish is ok to use a damp cloth to general marks. Simply dust them down using a feather duster or mitten. You could even give them a bit of a vacuum with a brush-like vacuum attachment.
  • Aluminium blinds are the most durable blind and one of the easiest to clean. You can use a damp cloth or cleaning spray to clean them. You could ever take them down and soak them in the bathtub for a deeper clean – make sure to dry them thoroughly afterwards.
  • Most vertical blind, roller and panel glide fabrics these days are made from 100% polyester with acrylic coating (PVC Free & Lead free) and have a dust and mould resistant performance. Surface dust can be removed with a duster or soft cloth. Or if need be, the fabric can be wiped with a damp sponge and dried with a clean soft cloth.
  • Never use abrasive products or solvent/industrial based cleaners. Do not roll up the fabric which is damp. Should extra cleaning be required a reputable ultrasonic clean would be the best method.

Cleaning your blinds doesn’t have to be a time-consuming task, most of the time it just takes a simple and regular wipe down to keep them from collecting dust.
