How to clean blinds

Most, if not all blinds can be kept clean in some way, whether that’s through dusting or careful application of cleaning products.  At Swift Direct Blinds, we aim to give you the best advice for your fabric and blind type and have created a few quick and easy guides for our customers old and new.
The cleaning tools and products you can use for cleaning your blinds, depends on the blind type and fabric they are made of. We have gathered a useful guide explaining how to clean each blind type, including our cleaning tool and product recommendations.

General rules for looking after your blinds

Even though we recommend applying different techniques to clean and look after your blinds, there are some general rules you should follow to ensure your blinds will last you years to come.

  • Don’t let moisture to settle on your blinds, especially wooden blinds, shutters and soft cloth blinds and curtains.

  • Always use clean cloth to wipe and clean your blinds.

  • Avoid using cleaning products and detergent where possible to avoid damaging fabric and operating mechanism of your blinds.

  • Avoid using oil or lubricating any part of your blind to prevent damage of your blind’s operating mechanism or the fabric.
