How to clean wooden blinds?
You have your dream blinds in your windows and you’re wondering how to keep them clean? We will show you some proven ways to clean them from dust and dirt.
Dust visible on wooden blinds is an important topic for those considering buying them. We’ve already brought this subject up on our last blog post “The color of wooden blinds and the visibility of dust.” Here are some proven methods of keeping them nice and clean.
Using a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush will let you clean the blinds from dust in a very fast and precise way. To do it, you should choose a soft brush, close the slats and vacuum the blinds carefully. Then the slats need to be turned, to repeat the action on the other side.
2. Dust brushes.
Dust brushes can be used in a similar way as the vacuum cleaner with the close slats, or to clean the space between the slats when they are open. In this case, the brush itself is quite important. It’s good if it attracts dust, so it does not fall on other spaces during cleaning. There are also brushes dedicated to blinds on the market. They are made to clean a few slats at once.
3. 3. Washing.
After dusting it is worth washing the blinds as well – this will allow you to remove dust more thoroughly and slow down the formation of further dirt. For washing, it is best to use a slightly damp cloth and a wood cleaner. The cloth cannot be very wet, as water may cause the wooden slats to deform.
4. Liquids with antistatic properties
To delay dust settling on the blinds after washing, it is worth using a wood dedicated liquid with antistatic properties. It will create a coating on the slats, which attracts particles in the air to a lesser extent, so the covers will stay clean longer.
The theory of cleaning wooden blinds mastered. Time to get down to business. Good luck!
