Making your Blinds Last

Blinds add an obvious aesthetic appeal to your home but they also offer some great protection too. With blinds, you can protect your furniture from sun damage and your valuables from being seen by strangers. You can control the amount of light allowed to enter the room and your blinds can even provide some noise reduction from the outside world.

It is therefore important to preserve and take care of these window coverings that preserve and protect your privacy and valuables, whilst keeping the temperature inside your home more agreeable. If you take care of your blinds they will last longer and look good for many years.

Cleaning With Care

As there are all different kinds of blinds in various materials, it’s important to remember that what works for one kind of blind when cleaning, may not be suitable for another. It’s always a good idea to check and adhere to manufacturer recommendations when it comes to cleaning your blinds.

If you don’t plan on using any cleaning products each time you clean your blinds, there are still a few simple ways that you can clean them.

A clean damp cloth is a great way to clean dust and dirt from your blinds; however, this can be a little more time consuming and if you don’t have much time or don’t wish to be spending too long on housework, there are other options.

A dust brush is fantastic for cleaning dust from blinds and there are even many brushes available now that are specifically designed for cleaning blinds. This is a quicker option than wiping each blind with a clean damp cloth; however, if you are prone to sneezing at the slightest sign of dust then this might not be your best option.

For a quick blind clean that won’t leave you sneezing, place the appropriate attachment on your vacuum cleaner and begin cleaning. The vacuum cleaner will suck up any dust so it is not left floating in the air and it is a quick and simple way to rid your blinds of dirt.

Professional Help

Sometimes blinds need professional help too. It is highly advisable to have them professionally cleaned at least once a year  if you want them to look fantastic for years to come.

When you have your blinds cleaned by a professional you are assured that all dirt, grease, grime and bacteria has been removed and that your blinds are guaranteed of not becoming a health hazard. If you would like to find out more about having your blinds cleaned to perfection click here.
