How To Clean Blinds

A blind is an investment for your home, and you want it to look as chic and stylish as possible for as long as possible, which is why you need to know how to clean blinds. To keep your blinds in perfect condition, we have tips that are quick, and easy and will ensure the very best treatment.

How to Clean Roman Blinds

In most cases, the easiest way to freshen up your Roman Blind at home is with the upholstery attachment on your vacuum cleaner to gently dust it down, then a quick spray of fabric refresher for that fresh finish. For small marks, wiping your blind down with a damp cloth may be your best option, it’s quick, and simple and won’t leave watermarks on the fabric.

For a more thorough clean, dry cleaning is the best idea, as no matter what material they’re made out of they’ll always be taken care of the right way. They’re straightforward to remove for cleaning too, as the fabric is connected to the headrail using Velcro strips, so can easily be separated to clean.

How to Clean Roller Blinds

Roller Blinds are a smart choice for the modern home for the simple reason; they’re easy to maintain. Whether they’re polyester or PVC, dusting with a dry cloth regularly will help to keep them in excellent condition. For other marks, biodegradable baby wipes will do the trick quite nicely! They’re damp enough to wash roller blinds thoroughly without leaving any marks and what’s more, they don’t use any harmful substances that can damage or stain the fabric, making them a very smart choice! However, if you have a damp cloth to hand, that will be just as good too.

How to Clean Vertical Blinds

One of the simplest ways to clean blackout Vertical Blinds at home and keep them in great condition for longer is by dusting them on a regular basis. It’s best to use a feather duster or a quick vacuum for this.

If your blind is small enough, you can remove the slats of your vertical blind to clean them. You’ll just need a large flat surface and a wet wipe, just gently wipe them over, both sides without pressing down too hard. Clean them down with a dry towel before rehanging them.

How to Clean Wooden Blinds

If a light clean is all your Wooden Blinds need, a feather duster or dry cloth will do the trick! Simply tilt the slats so they’re closed and give them light dust, before tilting the slats the opposite way and repeating the process.

To further enhance the finish, use some furniture polish and a lint-free cloth. Set the slats to the open position, spray with polish, and then wrap the cloth around a stiff object that fits between the slats, then you will easily be able to polish the underside of the slat above and the topside of the slat below at the same time.

How to Clean Faux Wood Blinds

Cleaning Faux Wood Blinds is a little easier as our wood impression range is not susceptible to water damage and can be enjoyed in challenging environments, such as kitchens and bathrooms. Again, for dusty blinds, a dry cloth or feather duster is all you need. For the more stubborn stains, use warm water and a cloth with a small amount of detergent and give them a good wipeover. The robust design means they’re waterproof and durable, so cleaning faux wood blinds takes no time at all and a quick dust and wipe down can make all the difference.

How to Clean Venetian Blinds

For Venetian Blinds, there are a couple of ways to make sure they’re in the best shape. For a light clean, gently vacuum or use a feather duster along the slats when closed, repeating the process when tilted the opposite way. An alternative to this is to use a vacuum cleaner with a suitable attachment to make it look as good as new!

For a slightly deeper clean, carefully take down your Venetian blind and pop it in the bath. Washing Venetian Blinds this way is a great technique to remove slightly stubborn marks on the slats. Simply immerse it in warm soapy water, and leave it to soak for about half an hour before giving it a gentle scrub with a brush. Once you have finished, rinse off any remaining suds and let it drip dry, before wiping down with a towel and hanging your Venetian blinds back up.

How to clean Pleated Blinds

When it comes to cleaning Pleated Blinds, in most cases all you need is a light clean, close them and with a brush attachment on a vacuum, gently go over the blinds for a quick and easy clean without risking any damage to the pleats.

If you have more stubborn marks, use warm water and a soft cloth to wipe them down. It’s best to use a damp cloth in order for the smart honeycomb design to retain its shape. If the blind is damp when you are done, simply raise the blind fully to the top of the window and leave it there for a few hours to ensure you have perfect pleats once it’s lowered back into position.
