How To Clean Your Vertical Blinds

July 27th, 2014 in All About Blinds

Blinds 2go are here to give you a quick and easy guide on how to clean your vertical blinds! Whether yours are of the fabric variety or made from rigid PVC, we’ve got a few helpful hints and handy tips to take the pain away and get those blinds looking good as new.

Dusting Vertical Blinds

One of the simplest ways to keep your vertical blinds clean for longer is dusting them on a regular basis. To do this, take a feather duster of some sort, rather than a cloth, and, starting from the top, brush downwards gently. Repeat on either side of the louvre every time you give your room a quick once over and you’re more likely to keep them looking fresh and clean.

Washing Vertical Blinds

If your blind is small enough, you can remove the louvres to clean them. You just need a large, flat surface, a mild detergent and a damp cloth.
Quite simply, just wipe the cloth along the length of the fabric gently – taking care not to scrub or press down too hard – and turn over, repeating on the other side.

Use a clean towel to pat them down before re-hanging them, this ensures that they won’t bend or twist when they’re drying, you can always pop a couple of towels underneath them to catch any errant drops of water.

Rigid PVC Vertical Blinds

All our rigid PVC vertical blinds are 100% waterproof, meaning that you can clean them down in the same way without having to worry about damaging the louvres.

Once again, you can choose whether to keep the louvres hanging or to remove them for cleaning, just be careful not to bend the rigid louvres as you remove them.
