If you are looking to clean your high-quality blinds from Solaire, this guide is for you.
How To Clean Blinds
At Solaire Blinds, we have a wide range of blinds to suit your home. Some of our best sellers include Venetian blinds, roller blinds and vertical blinds. Every blind requires a different cleaning method, but for the most part, you can use the same equipment: warm water and a damp cloth.
How To Clean Venetian Blinds
Venetian blinds can accumulate dust and dirt more easily than most kinds of blinds but, thankfully, they’re also one of the easiest to clean. The best way to start is to simply run over the dust with a feather duster or dry cloth. Repeat this step for the other side of the blinds.
Every now and then, Venetian blinds do develop stains, especially if you leave your windows open. If your blinds are made of real or faux wood, it is best to use a Venetian blind cleaner to wash them, but otherwise regular water with a splash of vinegar and a damp cloth will do the job nicely.
How To Clean Roller Blinds
This may sound like a challenging clean, but there are truly only a few steps between you and spotless blinds.
For a light clean, we recommend running your blind the entire way down and running vacuum cleaner over it. Be sure to target loose dust and dirt. For a deeper clean that targets stains, use your trusty warm soapy water and damp flannel over the areas you want to target.
How To Clean Vertical Blinds
Before you try to clean your vertical blinds, it is imperative to acknowledge what material they are made from. Fabric vertical blinds can be hand washed or washed in a machine, but wooden blinds mustn’t be soaked at all.
For fabric vertical blinds, we recommend removing them from the head rail before cleaning and giving that a good wipe down with (you guessed it) warm water and a damp cloth. Gently remove the dust from the blinds with a dry cloth before washing them in warm water. If you’re opting to use the washing machine, go for a 30° setting. Then all you need to do is lay them out to dry before you hang them back up!
We hope that our above guidance will help you when you wash your blinds. If you need any further or we didn’t cover your preferred blind in this guide, please contact our team.
