Blinds - Cleaning & Maintenance


Roman blinds getting grotty?

If the blinds in your home are beginning to look a bit the worse-for-wear, you might think the only option is to have them replaced. But it’s not. You can get them back to looking great without having to make a major investment in new blinds.

Blinds are often forgotten when it comes to cleaning your home. And Roman blinds in particular can be difficult to clean (which could be why they can become a little neglected).

These blinds need a gentle hand when it comes to removing dirt and grime or you might permanently damage the fabric.

  • You can vacuum your blinds with an upholstery attachment to remove dust and any lose particles of dirt. You can use a crevice attachment for any folds. Don’t forget to vacuum both sides.
  • For any stains, you can try spot removal solution. Use with a damp cloth, following the manufacturer’s instructions (it is always wise to test for colour fastness first in an area which can’t be seen)

If you don’t fancy taking the risk, your best solution is to call a professional blinds cleaning service. This will be a fast and stress-free process and they can also make any necessary repairs. You’ll get your blinds back looking great and will save the cost of buying new blinds.

Get rid of mould on your venetian blinds and avoid a health hazard

Mould appearing on venitian blinds is very common and can be a serious health risk, especially for asthma sufferers. If you spot any, you should remove it right away.

Our homes will often have a lot of humidity inside (especially homes with evaporative air-conditioning) which can create condensation on your windows. Your blinds can soak up this moisture and with the warmth of the sun, create an ideal growing environment for mould.

To help prevent mould from appearing on your blinds:

  • Keep your home adequately ventilated to remove humidity and moisture from the room.
  • If you can, put your blinds in direct sunlight.
  • Clean the blinds with a natural disinfectant such as vinegar or tea tree oil.

If your blinds already have mould beginning to grow, then the only option is to kill 100% of all the mould spores.

To clean the venetian blinds you will need to:

  • Remove the blinds from the window and place outside in the sun.
  • Wipe and clean with a mild detergent or undiluted vinegar.
  • You can also use a solution with tea tree oil (one teaspoon per cup of water) or clove oil (a quarter teaspoon per litre of water).
  • Leave in direct sunlight for a more effective UV clean.

If you are short of time, have difficulty removing the venetian blinds or want a 100% effective clean first time, you can always use a professional service Blind Cleaning service. They can also fix any minor damage or problems you might have with the blinds.

Just remember that after the venetian blinds are cleaned, you’ll need to improve the ventilation in the room to reduce the risk of it happening again.
