  • Cleaning your vertical blinds

Vertical blinds can be best cleaned with a brush designed just for drapes or it can be cleaned with a lamb’s wool brush. These brushes won’t be too harsh on the material but they will remove all of the dust that has collected on the blinds. Use spot cleaning for blinds covered with a fabric.

  • Cleaning your wooden blinds

Please don’t use soap and water on your wooden blinds, it can seep into the wood and cause damage. If you are just going to be giving your wooden blinds the occasional clean, use a cleaner that is designed for wood. Oil soap can be very useful. A vacuum or lamb’s wool duster is ideal for the more intense clean that the blinds might need.

  • Cleaning your aluminium blinds

If you just want to give your aluminium blinds in Centurion a quick clean then the fastest method would be to wear two pairs of gloves, a rubber pair with a cotton pair over that, and create a solution of ammonia and water. Dip your fingers in the water and along with the cotton gloves, you will easily lift the dust. If you are looking to give the blinds a more intense clean then you will need to remove the blinds, and then you need to either place them into a bath tub or under a shower. Each slat of the blinds can now be washed with the ammonia solution or with soapy water before being cleaned off with a sponge. The soapy water or ammonia solution then needs to be rinsed off with clean water and a clean sponge.

  • Cleaning your venetian blinds
