Cleaning the blinds is probably the lowest on your list of favorite cleaning activities (if there are any at all). There are so many of them, it’s time-consuming, and they are madly in love with dust. We at Elite Cleaning are here to provide you with valuable tips and tricks on how to maintain your blinds and keep the allergies away.
Light Cleaning and Maintenance for all Types of Blinds
If you need to do some light dusting and quickly clean your blinds, we suggest you use a regular microfiber cloth or an old cotton sock. You can put it on your hand and wipe the blinds from the top and bottom sides. That will efficiently clean up the dust particles and help out if you have an allergy problem.
Even your blinds deserve a deep cleanse treatment. Prepare a mixture of warm water and vinegar and clean each segment with a cloth. You can always use the smaller brush attachment for your vacuum and completely eliminate the dust and dirt particles.
How to Take Care of Wooden Blinds
Wooden or bamboo blinds are a bit trickier since you cannot really soak them in water. If you do, you risk warping the wood and even discoloring it. A damp cloth or a sock is perfectly okay, though. Use cleaning products with lemon to make your blinds truly shine. Also, same goes for any wood preservative.
Fabric Blinds Maintenance
Fabric blinds are pretty and come in numerous varieties but they can also stain easily and that can be problematic to handle at home. You can also use a dry cleaner for serious issues if you cannot handle it on your own, but before you throw your towel in, you can at least try these tips and tricks. Use a mild detergent and blot the stains lightly with a warm water mixture. Let it air dry and repeat if you haven’t gotten rid of all the stains. Try your regular stain remover, too. Be careful not to wrinkle the fabric in the process.
