Blinds are a great way to control light and privacy in the home or office, and come in a wide array of designs and styles. Versatile, easy to use and attractive, it is easy to see why so many people have chosen blinds for their windows and doors. Like any window dressing, blinds can collect dust, and our helpful guide below will help you to clean and care for your blinds, keeping them in perfect condition.
The good news about vertical blinds is that they are possibly the easiest of all blinds styles to care for. We recommend weekly dusting to keep your blinds looking their best. Simply switch your blinds to the closed position, and use a duster or soft cloth to wipe down the slats. Once a year, you can lightly wash down your slats with a little detergent and a damp cloth. There are also some steamers that are designed to clean blinds, but check the manufacturer's instructions first to avoid any damage to your blinds.
Okay, so Venetian blinds can be a magnet for dust, but they are actually quite easy to clean. There are some great brushes on the market today designed for this purpose, but you don't necessarily need to spend more money - you probably have what you need at home. In fact, a duster or an old sock can work very well. If you have an upholstery cleaner on your hoover, you can also use this, but be careful not to apply too much suction. Simply wipe or vacuum each slat to remove dust and leave the surface clean.
Roller blinds are thankfully quite easy to clean, and in quick time too. Simply roll the blind down and wipe it gently with a soft cloth or brush. Any stains can be removed with a little water and detergent.
Roman blinds are also very easy to keep clean. To get into the folds and ruches of your fabric, try using the upholstery attachment on your vacuum cleaner, on a lower setting if possible so that you don't damage the fabric. Some fabrics may be dry clean only, and if this is the case, simply remove all the fittings, and take to your usual dry cleaning outlet.
