Both vertical and horizontal
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.
