Three efficient methods to clean wind blinds
May 18, 2013
Today more and more people are opting for window blinds instead of curtains or drapes because blinds don’t get stained as often. Also blinds, unlike curtains and drapes accumulate little dust because of the fact that they are made from a dust-proof material. However, despite all these qualities, window blinds just like all household and office features require their fair share of cleaning. This is why we have decided to write down an article with three blind cleaning methods that will allow window blind owners to maintain their blinds clean.
Method 1: The Clean Hands Method
This method is undoubtedly one of the simplest cleaning techniques known to mankind. Just shut your blinds and put on one of your hands a dust-attractant glove. If you don’t own such a glove you can buy one from a nearby cleaning company or supermarket or substitute it with a cotton glove. Before you put on the glove, make sure that the glove is completely dry, because a damp or wet glove will leave hard to remove moisture and water streaks on your blinds. Now run your fingers lightly over the blind slats to pick all the dust and dirt that are stuck on the slats. Always work in a horizontal direction and when you are done with one side of the blinds, flip them so that you can clean the other side as well. If the glove gets too dirty, simply replace it with a new one and continue your cleaning routine.
Method 2: The Professional Method
As the name suggests, this method involves a professional cleaning company. Instead of wasting time and resources on cleaning your blinds on your own, simply call professional cleaners to clean your window blinds for you. Keep in mind that most professional cleaners have specialized machines that will not only remove the dust and dirt from the blind slats but wash them as well.
Method 3: The Vacuum Cleaning Method
This blind cleaning technique is as simple as the first method that we presented to you. However this time instead of using a glove, you will use your vacuum cleaner. Once again shut your blinds and use your vacuum cleaner to remove the dust and dirt. If you have a soft duster brush attachment, affix it to the nozzle of your vacuum. This way you won’t risk damaging the slats. Hold the back of the slats with your free hand to provide better suction.
