Want to know the best ways to keep your Roller blind looking pristine?
It’s a question we’re often asked at Right Price Blinds so we’ve put together this handy little guide on caring for your Roller Blinds!
Roller blinds are a really great choice for high usage areas, especially if you choose a wipe clean performance fabric, which is specially designed for these areas – such as kitchens, bathrooms and children’s bedrooms.
No matter how clean your home is, there will always be a certain amount of dust particles that find their way to rest on your blinds, but unlike curtains, you don’t generally have to take your blinds down to clean them – phew!
Even if you don’t have a specialist wipe clean fabric, it is easy to keep your standard Roller blind clean and fresh.
Tips for Cleaning Roller Blinds
- Firstly – Clear the area around your window sill and open your blind down fully
- Vacuum – If your vacuum cleaner has a dust attachment start off by using this to remove as much dust and dirt as possible. Vacuum from top to bottom on both sides of the fabric.
- Damp clean –Never try to wash fabric blinds because it might cause their dye to run. Instead, after spot testing for colorfastness, use a damp (not wet) microfibre cloth to wipe away heavier dirt.
- Stubborn Stain Removal – If you cannot remove a stain with water alone, try using a fabric stain removal product. Simply treat the stained area following the manufacturer instructions. Warning! While this is an effective cleaning method there is a possibility that the treated area of the blind may look lighter than the rest of the blind, depending on the colour/texture of the fabric.
Once you’ve given your blinds a good clean, make dusting them a part of your weekly cleaning routine and give them a bit of extra attention two or three times a year!
