While we have written cleaning guides specifically for different blind types, we understand that the choice behind your new blind might be driven on upkeep rather than cosmetic reasons. Rooms or areas that get a lot of traffic, such as public areas like schools or hospitals require easy to clean surfaces. As those areas will attract a lot of dirt and dust, easy-clean and micro-resistant fabrics are ideal.
For general cleaning dos and don’ts, we advise:
- 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.
We’ve also broken down the different blind types with their pros and cons.
