Plantation shutters Wandsworth look fantastic in most homes, with the straight angular lines of the sleek wooden slats creating a minimal finish that complements most existing interiors. However, like most things within the home they can collect dust and require cleaning every so often to ensure they keep their glossy sheen. As professional retailers of a variety of blinds, we at Controlux Blinds have decided to give you some advice on how to clean your shutters so that they look fantastic all throughout the year.
Tip One: Hoover Your Blinds
One simple yet effective way you can remove excess dust and grime from your recently bought shutters is with a hoover. By using the brush application on your hoover, you can simply glide over your slats, removing all traces of your dust, however it’s important that you take care when doing this so that you don’t inadvertently scratch the surface of your blinds.
Top tip: Feather dusters are great at removing dust and as they are soft to the touch, there is no chance of you damaging your newly purchased blinds.
Tip Two: Use A Damp Cloth
If you have found a stubborn stain that won’t be moved by gliding over the surface with a feather duster, you need to use a damp cloth. However, it’s important that you wring as much of the moisture out of the cloth as possible because water will make your slats warp.
Tip Three: Slants your Slats
The easiest way to clean your shutters is by tilting them so that they are closed, this reveals a large proportion of the slats for you to clean all at once.
