Because it is perhaps one of the most aggravating, yet necessary, jobs in the home here are a few tips on cleaning and taking care of various types of blinds, from top blinds suppliers in Johannesburg. If you don’t stay on top of cleaning your blinds, dust can pack up and it can become unmanageable. Avoid this by staying on it, and keeping dust at bay and your blinds clean and fresh all year round.
It’s necessary to dust your vertical blinds often. Before dusting, spray an aerosol onto the blinds to dislodge any caked on dust. For fabric blinds, make use of a tiny amount of normal clothes or air freshener. Test on a small spot first to make sure, before spraying larger areas. For vertical blinds made of wooden slats, it is best to stick to compressed air, which won’t cause any damage.
You can also clean vertical blinds using a gentle vacuum motion. For this, it is advisable to use a brush attachment to your vacuum when vacuuming vertical blinds, as the bristles help to remove dust particles. There is also less powerful suction when using the brush, ensuring a powerful yet non-damaging vacuuming.
Cleaning Venetian Blinds
Before cleaning your Venetian blinds, check for problem spots. Wipe off any splats, stains, sticky areas or splats with a window spray cleaner, and wipe down with paper towels. Place the blinds in the shut position, and use a soft dust-attracting glove or kitchen towel – as it reduces static electricity – and wipe down the blinds.
Doing this regularly will ensure that your blinds remain dust-free and clean, providing a safe and hygienic environment for your family. Contact Vertical Blinds, a leading blinds supplier in Johannesburg, for more information on how to properly take care of your blinds.
