At Blind Scapes, we understand that maintaining and cleaning your window blinds can feel like a serious chore, but it doesn’t have to be. As with most things in your home, blinds attract dust, dirt, and pet hair. Perhaps you’re wondering if you’re using the proper methods or products to clean your blinds? We’ve gathered the best tips to clean all types of blinds to help you out.
Your Hunter Douglas blinds are an investment that will last for many years with proper care. It’s important to keep your blinds clean to prevent any surface material or fingerprints from becoming set-in stains.
It’s actually easier than you think to keep window blinds sparkling clean. The first step is to know what material your blinds are made of: wood, metal, or other.
Wood blinds need to be dusted fairly often to the dust from causing minor surface scratches. Always use a cleaner designed for wood, and a wood conditioner as needed to help maintain the blinds’ finish. Make sure you never expose your wood blinds to too much moisture while cleaning as the slats can become warped.
The process to clean metal, hybrid, or vinyl blinds is relatively similar. You usually don’t need to take your blinds down to clean them, and the process requires only a few basic supplies.
