How to clean Shutters

If you want to clean your shutters correctly, we recommend you approach this by treating them as you would any other piece of furniture. This means regularly dusting them using a duster; a clean, soft and dry cloth; or a soft vacuum brush attachment.

Removing stains

If you have any stains, marks or grease on your shutters, use a bit of water and clean cloth to remove these. Be very gentle with your shutters and avoid harsh rubbing to prevent damaging the colour.
Using cleaning products

If you’re using any detergents or special wood polish, make a patch test on a hidden area of your shutter first to ensure it doesn’t damage the colour or material.

Consider the material

If your shutters are made of real wood, avoid any moisture settling on them. By keeping them as dry as possible, you will prevent them from warping.

The main reason why it’s so important to ensure your blinds are kept dry is that real wood shutters are usually made from a type of wood that is very absorbent. Therefore, any cleaning method that involves liquid is unsuitable for real wood shutters as the louvres can absorb the water and then warp when drying.
Instead, use a clean, dry cloth to wipe away any dust and dirt once a week. Cleaning them regularly will help to avoid any dirt or grime settling on the slats.

We also suggest you check the fixing screws on your shutters regularly to ensure they don’t rust or became loose.
