Window blinds are available in a range of textures, shades and fabrics. One is literally spoiled for choice in this regard. While these blinds increase the aesthetic appeal of your home, and add value in many other ways; the one thing that you need to know is their maintenance. Just as with any other household item, proper care is essential to ensure a ‘longer life’ for window blinds.
Here are a few cleaning and maintenance tips that will enable you to keep your blinds looking brand new, all year round!
a.) Always brush downward when dusting or vacuuming vertical blinds. This is important, because the slats could get unhooked if brushed upwards.
b.) Buy a rubber sponge from a hardware store. This will come in handy when you want to get rid of dust from fabric and vinyl blinds. Just wipe the sponge in an “across” motion for sparkling blinds.
c.) Avoid plastic dusters and instead use a soft lamb’s-wool duster when cleaning the slats.
d.) Do not try to manually scrape away residue from fabric blinds; this will damage the material. Instead, give your blinds the dry cleaner’s treatment.
e.) If you plan on a round of spot cleaning for your blinds, remember to use an all-purpose cleaner. Spray the contents onto a clean dry cloth and wipe the soiled areas. Spraying the cleaner directly onto blinds is inadvisable.
