Top Tips on How to Care for Your New Blinds
Window blinds not only offer privacy, but are convenient and great to look at as well. However, blinds can accumulate dust and dirt, and different blinds need different care and cleaning methods. At SunRise Blinds, we offer invaluable tips on how to clean and take care of your new blinds in order to maintain their appearance and beauty.
It is very easy to clean roller blinds. These blinds can be vacuumed to remove traces of dust and debris without marring their appearance. Alternatively, they can be dusted with a soft, lint-free cloth too.
Typically, Roman blinds are washable and can be put into the washing machine. However, check the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions before doing it. Remember to wash the blinds in cold water, using delicate cycles. Furthermore, use a detergent that is specifically formulated to wash fine and delicate items.
Venetian blinds can be made of wood or aluminium. Never use water to clean wood Venetian blinds; however, you can use water to clean aluminium blinds.
Clean wood Venetian blinds with a soft cloth. Each slat should be wiped from the edge to the centre which prevents dust from accumulating near and on the cords. If grease or oil splashes on the blinds, as is common in kitchens, use a weak solution of washing liquid and warm water. Use a soft, damp cloth to clean away the grease and oil and refrain from using abrasives and ammonia-based products on the blinds, as they could damage or scratch them.
When raising or lowing Venetian blinds, ensure the slats are in a horizontal position. Never use oil or lubricant to smooth the tilting mechanism; instead, call a professional to fix it.
These blinds can be cleaned with a soft, damp cloth. As vertical blinds can easily accumulate dirt and dust, they require frequent cleaning. Do not use abrasives or cleaning products with ammonia as they could scratch or cause the colour to fade. It is prudent to remember that the vertical veins of the blind are delicate and can be damaged easily so handle them gently while cleaning.
