Window blinds are a great way to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter, while also providing some privacy. They come in a variety of styles and colors, and can be made from a variety of materials. No matter what type of blinds you have in your home, it's important to clean them on a regular basis to keep them looking their best. In this blog post, we will discuss how to clean different types of blinds.
The vinyl or aluminum mini blinds can be cleaned with a vacuum cleaner, and they are made of either vinyl or aluminum. It's important to use the brush attachment so that you don't scratch the material. You should also wipe them down with a damp cloth once every two weeks in order to remove dust from between slats.
Fauxwood blinds may be made of PVC or polystyrene foam, and they can be cleaned by vacuuming them regularly and wiping them down with a damp cloth at least every other month. The best way to clean these materials is with an all-purpose cleaner, since they are not as easy to clean as wood is when it comes time for deep cleaning sessions twice per year.
Vertical blinds are easy enough that they don't need much more than vacuuming with a brush attachment and dusting with a feather duster. It is possible to wipe them down with a wet cloth if they are severely dirty, but be sure to allow them to dry thoroughly before returning them back to their place on the window.
The materials used in Venetian blinds are diverse, so you should follow the cleaning instructions that came with your particular blinds. In general, you can vacuum them and then use a damp cloth to wipe them down. If they are really dirty, you may need to use an all-purpose cleaner or even a window cleaner.
You can clean roll-up shades by vacuuming regularly and wiping them down with a damp cloth as needed; however, if they get really dirty, you will need to take them off the window and wash them in cold water with laundry detergent. Be sure to rinse them thoroughly and let them air dry before putting them back up.
The recommended frequency for cleaning them is once every three months, but if they get really dirty, then it's okay for this frequency to increase up until about two times per year (or more). Be sure that when vacuuming, you get the dust out between slats by using a brush attachment which makes cleaning easier than using just one without any attachments on hand at home right now!
Your home benefits greatly from having window blinds installed, and they should be cleaned at least twice a year for best results - more often if there is a significant build-up of dirt or dust. By following these simple tips, you can keep your window treatments looking their best while also protecting your investment.
