The Ultimate Guide On Cleaning Your Roller Blinds
There a variety of popular options for blinds in Melbourne. Roller blinds are amongst one of the most installed window fixtures in homes. But over time, it’s easy for dirt and grime to build upon the surface. If left untreated the bacteria on roller blinds could potentially turn into harmful pollutants like mould. To take care of your roller blinds in Melbourne, follow these simple steps:
1. Cleaning For The Correct Material
Roller blinds are made from all kinds of fabric. From block out, high opacity to semi-opaque and sheer fabrics, different materials require different cleaning processes. If your blinds aren’t labelled with material and washing information, get in touch with your supplier.
2. Vacuuming Blinds
Washing roller blinds is simple. But there are certain things you need to do before you start the washing process. Washable roller blinds need to be vacuumed and dusted first. Make sure any dirt on the surface is removed.
3. Washing Process
Afterwards, washing the blinds themselves is easy. Once you’ve detached your roller blinds and taken care of all the dust on the surface submerge it into a tub of warm water and gentle laundry detergent. Then let it soak for a while to loosen stubborn dirt and stains. A soft sponge or cloth should be able to wipe away remaining dirt. Afterwards, rinse your blinds in clean water until no more soap comes out of the blinds.
4. Spot Cleaning
For roller blinds that can’t be washed, another way to remove dirt is through spot cleaning. This is where you focus on the visible dirt on the surface of your blinds. Instead of soaking your blinds in detergent, vacuum the surface then mix up warm water and laundry detergent as a cleaning agent. From there, use a sponge or toothbrush to take care of spots and stains.
5. Drying Blinds
Drying your newly washed or spot cleaned roller blinds follow the same principles. Carefully remove your blinds from the roller and lay it out flat over a drying rack or hang it on a washing line. Make sure your blinds aren’t in direct sunlight for too long as the colour of the fabric may fade.
