To clean roller blinds, start by pulling them down so they're fully extended.
Then, use a vacuum with a brush attachment to remove any dust and debris on the blinds.
Once you've gone over the blinds with the vacuum, depending on the fabric, you can then use a damp (not wet) sponge or dish towel to wipe them off with lukewarm soapy water (check instructions on the reverse of the fabric swatch).
To clean roman blinds, start by pulling them down so they’re fully extended.
Then, use a vacuum with a brush attachment to remove any dust and debris on the blinds, taking particular care in the creases or where the battens sit.
Once you’ve gone over the blinds with the vacuum, depending on the fabric, you can then use a damp (not wet) sponge or dish towel to wipe them off with lukewarm soapy water (check instructions on the reverse of the fabric swatch).
To clean an Aluminium Venetian Blind, simply apply the same steps for the Visionwood Venetian Blind (see below).
Aluminium Venetian Blinds can also be taken down out of their brackets and thoroughly cleaned in a bathtub. Simply fill a bathtub with clean water and clean each slat with a sponge. Ensure the blinds are rehung and left in the open position to allow them to dry completely before using again.
Start by tilting the Venetian Blind slats in the upwards position and grab either a feather duster or a dry cloth and run the cloth or duster across the slats. Repeat this process and tilt the slats into the downward position.
Once you have dusted off the slats, fill up a bucket with fresh water and dampen a clean cloth. Again, tilt the slats into the upward position and working left to right, starting from the top, clean each slat individually.
Repeat this process and tilt the slats into the downward position.
Next, tilt the slats into the open position and again run the cloth along each individual slat.
Remember to consistently rinse your sponge and change the water when required. Finally, leave the slats in the open position until completely dry to prevent the build-up of mould or mildew.
As Timber (Purewood) Venetian Blinds are a natural product, they need to be taken care of to ensure the life of the blind can be prolonged.
Start by giving the Timber Venetian Blind a dust over. Tilt the slats up and then down, using a feather duster to give a light dusting. This is an easy cleaning technique that can be done weekly to prevent the build-up of dust.
This will also help to make a deep clean of the blind easier. For a deeper clean, use the soft brush head on the vacuum and run it along the slats. Due to the nature of the Timber Venetian Blind, avoid getting the blind wet and do not use any harsh chemicals on the slats.
If you do have any stubborn dirt or dust, use a damp (not wet) microfibre cloth to remove any build up on the slats.
TIP: Put your hand inside a sock and wrap your hand around each individual slat. Run your hand along each individual slat, cleaning both the back and the front of the slat at one time. It is an easy and great way to do a deep dusting for each slat.
See instructions for Purewood Venetians above.
Dusting with a feather duster or the brush attachment of your vaccum. is all that is required to keep your Panel Glide looking good.
For the removal of dirt and grime, simply wipe fabric panels with a damp (not wet) sponge soaked in lukewarm water.
If marks are still visible add a little mild detergent. Then dry gently with a clean cloth.
You can clean fabric vertical blinds without removing the vanes.
Lift away dust by sweeping down the fabric with the brush attachment of your vacuum while supporting the vane from behind with your hand.
To remove stains, you can spot clean with a damp (not wet) microfiber cloth and warm, soapy water.
Internal PVC Shutters are easy to clean and maintain.
Over time your shutters will collect dust. As shutters don’t blow around in the breeze or move when handled, they can be simply wiped down like you would a piece of furniture.
A micro fibre ‘anti static’ cloth or glove is ideal. Otherwise a damp cloth to collect the dust with a quick wipe should be sufficient.
Real timber shutters, painted or stained, should be kept dry at all times. If wet from a window left open. Dry off with a towel as soon as possible.
Continued exposure to water or steam can damage or alter the timber.
Do NOT use any kind of water or soap. Dust with a dry micro fibre cloth.
Like any blinds, the honeycell style will eventually gather dust and general house hold debris over time.
Using a feather duster or soft dry cloth is an easy way to remove dust particles. Alternatively, a hairdryer set on cold is a great way to blow out the cobwebs and get your honeycell blinds back to their best. A vacuum cleaner with dusting attachment (make sure you’re using a low power setting) will do the trick, too.
You can also spot clean your honeycell blinds. Try to treat the fabric both carefully and gently whenever you’re spot cleaning it. Use a damp plain-white cloth with a very mild detergent, and gently ‘dab’ at the affected area.
Harsh rubbing will remove the stiffness and possibly even colour of the fabric, and can also distort its surface. Try to ensure that you don’t crease the fabric throughout the cleaning process.
Occasionally, insects may get trapped inside your blind cells. Again, grab a hairdryer set to cold (or similar), or vacuum cleaner, and you can easily blow out any bugs that may have perished.
Remove hooks, rings and trims before cleaning. Vacuum your sheer drapes with a brush attachment before taking them down if they’ve been hanging for a while. Set the vacuum to the lowest suction possible.
Warm hand wash. Do not bleach. Do not rub or wring. Drip dry in the shade.
For best results hang curtains by their hooks to damp dry immediately. Use warm iron.
Dry clean drapes with “dry-clean only” tags. Attempting to wash them can ruin them.
Never wash drapes in hot water or put them in the dryer, as this can cause them to shrink.
