After you buy blinds for your home, you need to know how to take care of them. Probably the most important aspect of proper care for your blinds is keeping them clean. When you clean them regularly, they keep allergens like dust and pet dander out of your home’s air. Too, like anything else, regular cleaning keeps dust and other contaminants from turning into a layer of gritty dirt that can actually harm your blinds.
Here’s how to keep your blinds clean and your home as allergen-free as possible:
To keep your blinds clean, dust them regularly. If you clean them once a week, you’ll avoid any dust build-up that can occur if you let it go.
Dust Aluminium blinds with a dust cloth, dusting glove, or a special dust-attracting product like Swiffer or a similar product. Extend your blinds fully. Adjust them until they’re almost closed. Hold onto the bottom rail of the blind and then dust, slat by slat. Next, reverse the slats and repeat. That way, you will get all the dust.
If your blinds have too much dirt for mere dusting to clean, you’ll need to clean them with a gentle cleaning solution. Only use mild cleaners on your blinds. If you’re unsure, ask your PMK Blinds Proffesional for his or her recommendation.
You can also create your own mild cleaning solution. A mixture of dish detergent—not dishwasher powder—and warm water can clean most types of fabric blinds.
Whatever the material, treat them gently. Never scrub them. Just dab, using gentle pressure as you clean. After you finish cleaning them, rinse them, and then air dry them. With timber, faux timber, or aluminium blinds, you may want to use a microfibre cloth dampened with water or your cleaning solution.
With regular cleanings and proper care, your blinds can last for years to come. To buy quality blinds that can stand up to regular cleanings and day-to-day wear and tear, contact the customer care team at PMK Blinds And Floors today.
