Keeping your roller blinds clean is easy – it just takes the right approach. With a few tools and a few minutes of work every week, you can keep even the largest blinds looking pristine day in, day out.
To help you get there, Gold Coast Blinds & Shutters has put together this short guide. Read on and make the informed choice for your blinds.
Step 1: Dust and dust regularly
Regular cleaning is easy cleaning. A quick brush down of your roller blinds – no matter what they’re made of – can limit how often you need to move to a deeper clean. Just take a feather duster or soft cloth and dust down the blinds at least once a week. A few minutes of effort every seven days can keep your blinds looking pristine, saving you time in the long run that you’d need to waste on a wet clean. For heavier dust, use a vacuum on a low-setting with a soft brush attachment.
Step 2: Deeper cleans
While regular dusting can help keep the mess down, whether the dirt’s gotten too much or they’ve been soiled by food or something else, there’s often no escaping a wet clean. Once you’re introducing water and wet chemicals, it’s important that you understand what works and what doesn’t for your specific blinds. Most blinds will respond well to warm water and a little bit of detergent, but be careful not to saturate the fabric. For heavier soiling – and if your bracket style allows it – some blinds can be left to soak in the bath and dried lying flat.
Step 3: Stain removal
If you’ve come back home and found a wine stain from two nights ago deep in the fabric of your blinds – don’t despair. Removing a stain from your roller blinds can be done without fuss or damage to the fabric. Speciality stain removers can help lift stains enough to be washed off with water and soap. Apply the remover according to manufacturer’s instructions, let sit and blot off with a wet rag. Then, wash the area with a fresh rag dipped in warm water and detergent.
