Caring for your Vertical Blinds.
These lovely hassle-free blinds do not require much cleaning at all as their use of them keeps the drapes free of dust. The headrail will require dusting but other than that the cleaning of these blinds is super simple.
Handy Tools for Maintaining Vertical Blinds;
- Duster – Quick, efficient, and budget-friendly, a duster can quickly spruce up your blinds. They wouldn’t be our first choice to a deep clean, but for day to day cleaning they’re great for regular maintenance.
- Microfiber Cloth– Containing small fibres that trap dust, these cloths can be used dry or with a cleaning product to provide more of a deep clean. They’re also reusable and can last a few years before needing to be replaced, although they may not be suitable for all pets so, please check with your local vets first.
Prepare The Space
Now we have talked about the right tools, you need to prepare your blinds and the surrounding areas for cleaning. You do not need to remove the blinds from your window. All you need to do is remove any objects such as vases or picture frames that you may have on your window ledges. This gives you easy access to the blind without the chance of knocking your favourite vase off & breaking it.
How To Clean Your Vertical Blinds
If you have purchased a UPVC material drapes, then you are able to use warm soapy water to keep the drapes clean. If you have purchased a fabric drape then we do advise a damp cloth to try & remove any marks on the drapes.
Please do NOT soak them in water or use any harsh chemicals on them- doing so can warp the drape and change the shape and colour of the drapes entirely resulting in your new blinds being damaged.
NONE of our vertical blind drapes can be put into the washing machine.
