Blinds and shutters are super helpful in a home. They effectively block the sun’s ray and it can keep a space cool. Do not neglect your blinds and shutters!! Spot clean your blinds and shutter with the following tips.
Are you noticing your blinds/shutters collecting dust?
When your blinds and shutters start collecting dust follow up by wiping away. Use an all purpose cleaner and a microfiber cloth to gently wipe the areas.
Monthly Dust Routine
Vacuum with a dust-brush attachment
Begin your monthly cleaning with vacuuming your blinds/shutters. On the lowest setting use a vacuum with the dust-brush attachment and suction all the dust away. From top to bottom glide the brush horizontally and then reverse the blinds/shutters blades to dust on the other side.
Deep Blinds Cleaning
Bathtub (If no bathtub, use a large rectangular container to submerge the blinds)
Is your dust turning into gunk?
Begin with removing blinds and letting them soak in a bathtub with water for 15 minutes.
After the 15 minutes, scrub away any grime with a light duty nylon sponge and an all-purpose cleaner.
Rinse well and lay the blinds to dry completely on towels.
Consult a professional cleaning service if you are unsure how to tackle your type of blinds/shutters.
NEVER use any material that is abrasive. Doing so will not ease your cleaning but will scratch the finish of your blinds/shutters.
