How To Clean Roller Blinds

As much as roller blinds look practical and elegant, they usually get dirty with time. You should know how to clean roller blinds to keep them beautiful. Here is a guide on how you can do it. If you have any concerns about roller blinds, you can visit your local blind store supplier.


Confirm your blind roller material

The first step is to check the material used to make your roller blind. This determines whether you will wash the roller blind or spot clean it. You can confirm this from your local blind supplier if you are not sure about the material.


Washing the roller blinds

It is simple to clean the blinds in case the fabric of your roller blinds are washable. Start by giving them a vacuum to eliminate any dirt and dust.

The next step is to remove the blind from the roller and place it down on the floor.

Vacuum the blind using the brush attachment on the vacuum.

Half fill warm water in a bathtub, then add a gentle laundry detergent and lower the blind in it.

Allow the blind to soak for some time and loosen any embedded dirt,

Get rid of the remaining dirt by wiping it with a cloth or a soft sponge.

Use a toothbrush to scrub stains.

Use clean water to rinse the blind and empty soapy water in the bathtub and refill it again with clean water.

 Rinse the blind until there is no any trace of soap. Lay the blind outside on a clothing line, or a clothe horse and let it dry. You can attach the blind to the roller again and re-hang it.


How to spot clean roller blinds

Sometimes roller blinds might not withstand being washed. You will have to spot clean them. Spot cleaning is cleaning visibly dirty areas only.

Begin with vacuuming the blinds as mentioned above to get rid of the surface dust.

Mix warm water with laundry detergent and use it as a cleaning agent.

Always test it on an inconspicuous spot to ensure that it doesn’t change the color or destroy the blinds.

Clean the dirty spots using a toothbrush or a sponge. If you like, you can clean the whole blind but in bits one at a time. Don’t over wet it. Finally, use clean water to rinse it. If you were trying to find out how to clean roman blinds, this is the way it is done.
