Keeping Your Horizontal or Vertical Blinds in Great Shape

Cleaning BlindsBoth vertical and horizontal blinds can add a lot to a space, but you have to do your part to keep them in their original condition. No matter which style you have in your home, use the following tips to properly care for your horizontal or vertical blinds:

Use the Brush Attachment
Dusting is one of the most important elements of your window treatment care routine. You can use the brush attachment on your vacuum to go across each slat to ensure that it is clean and free from dust. You should vacuum the slats about once a week to get the best results.

Do Some More Dusting
Every few weeks, you can use a duster to go over each of the slats and pick up any dust that the vacuum might have missed. You should always move the brush in a downward fashion to avoid unhooking the slats by accident. With the proper care, you can maintain the original condition of your window treatments in San Jose.

Clean a Little Deeper
If there are stains on your blinds, you can use a dry sponge to get rid of it. Dry sponges work well on fabric and vinyl blinds. You can also spot clean with an all-purpose cleaner and a dry cloth. You should always spray the cleaner onto the cloth and never point it directly at the window treatment.

Get them Even Cleaner
If you have metal or vinyl blinds, you can take them off and place them in the bathtub to get them even cleaner. Put a small amount of dishwashing detergent into the water and use a sponge or a cloth to wipe off every slat. You can place the blinds on a rug outside to let them dry. If you have wood blinds, you should clean them in place and try to avoid getting them too wet. If you have fabric blinds, you can take them to a dry cleaner.
