Trends Are Not Timeless

As much as we want our homes to look trendy, it’s worth remembering trends are not timeless. Trends come and go, but the desire to feel comfy and cosy at home is always there. That’s why choose trends that go great with your interior and look pleasing to your eye.

How to Clean Your New Blinds

clean blinds

After you buy blinds for your home, you need to know how to take care of them. Probably the most important aspect of proper care for your blinds is keeping them clean. When you clean them regularly, they keep allergens like dust and pet dander out of your home’s air. Too, like anything else, regular cleaning keeps dust and other contaminants from turning into a layer of gritty dirt that can actually harm your blinds.

Here’s how to keep your blinds clean and your home as allergen-free as possible:

Dust Blinds Once Weekly

To keep your blinds clean, dust them regularly. If you clean them once a week, you’ll avoid any dust build-up that can occur if you let it go.

Dusting Fabric and Double Roller Blinds

Dust Roman and double roller blinds with your hand vacuum’s soft brush tool on a low suction setting. Or, if you don’t have a hand vacuum, you can fasten a similar tool to your floor vacuum. The key to success is to use a low suction setting so you won’t damage the fabric.

Dusting Retro Aluminium

Dust retro aluminium blinds with a dust cloth, dusting glove, or a special dust-attracting product like Swiffer or a similar product. Extend your blinds fully. Adjust them until they’re almost closed. Hold onto the bottom rail of the blind and then dust, slat by slat. Next, reverse the slats and repeat. That way, you will get all the dust.

Cleaning Stubborn Dirt and Grime from Your Blinds

If your blinds have too much dirt for mere dusting to clean, you’ll need to clean them with a gentle cleaning solution. Only use mild cleaners on your blinds. If you’re unsure, ask your Galaxy Blinds professional for his or her recommendation.

You can also create your own mild cleaning solution. A mixture of dish detergent—not dishwasher powder—and warm water can clean most types of fabric blinds.

Clean Blinds Gently

Whatever the material, treat them gently. Never scrub them. Just dab, using gentle pressure as you clean. After you finish cleaning them, rinse them, and then air dry them. With wooden or retro aluminium blinds, you may want to use a microfibre cloth dampened with water or your cleaning solution.

Special Care for Motorised Blinds

Since motorised blinds depend on electrical power, keep moisture out of electrical components like batteries or other parts.

With regular cleanings and proper care, your blinds can last for years to come.
