The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

How To Clean Venetian Blinds

Short Summary: This article discusses how to clean Venetian blinds, with practical tips offered throughout the article.

Venetian Blinds are a popular choice for many people as a window covering. The blinds can be made out of different types of material including wood, metal and vinyl and can be ordered custom made or bought pre made. Available in an array of colours, the blinds keep out the harmful sunrays and provide privacy to any room of your home.

They come in many different styles and can last for years if properly taken care of. Cleaning them may be something you have put off because you might not be sure how to go about it. It can be a big job, but if it's done properly (and regularly), they will be clean all the time.

General Cleaning

Your blinds should be cleaned on a weekly basis to avoid grime and dirt to build up on the blinds. This build up not only looks bad and makes it harder to clean in the future, but can also pose potential health issues for people with allergies.

Cleaning venetians doesn't have to be difficult- you can use a duster by tilting the slats up and dusting over them and then tilt the slats down and dust over. You can also purchase microfiber venetian blind window dusters reasonably cheap (from various stores) which makes cleaning your blinds much easier.

The vacuum cleaner is also a great tool to use- the round brush attachment is the best one to use on venetian blinds. If you give go over them with the vacuum every week they will be sure to look as good as new for many years to come. You may want to do a test on a small section of your blinds prior to vacuuming, just to make sure the suction isn't going to do any damage to the slats of the blind.

It's possible to have the blinds professionally cleaned, but it can be expensive and is unnecessary (and avoidable) if you're willing to take the time to clean them on a weekly basis.

Deeper Cleaning

If you have not cleaned your blinds for a long time (or ever) and they are grimy, greasy or just flat out filthy you will have to give them a bit more TLC than normally required.

Some people like to take their blinds completely down from the casing and give them a good scrub, but you may not have to do that. If, however, you do decide to do that then make sure you have a friend help you take them down and put them back up as they can be heavy and you may hurt yourself if you try to do it by yourself.

Generally speaking, however, you should be able to keep your blinds hanging up and still clean them. Tilt the slats up and spray with a non-abrasive cleaning solution (either store bought or homemade). Let the cleaning spray work its magic and wipe off with a soft cloth. Do this for each slat then tilt the slats down and repeat. Voila! Clean blinds!
