Go back to the questions

Q: What's the best way to take care of my blinds?
A: Roller Blinds and Vertical Blinds: Vacuum very carefully with a very soft brush attachment or us a duster (preferably wool).  Use a clean damp cloth to wipe any severe soiling from the blind.

Timber Venetians and Shutters: Dust with a duster, or the occasional light vacuuming with a brush attachment should keep the blinds clean.

Cellular Blinds: Regular dusting can be done using a feather dusted.  When necessary, fabric can be lightly vacuumed with a brush attachment. Do not use strong detergents or spot removers.  Do not dry clean.

Roman Blinds: Vacuum with a soft brush attachment if necessary.  Any marks may be removed with a clean eraser.  Do not use strong detergents or spot removers.  Do not dry clean.

Aluminium Blinds: Light vacuuming and dusting is recommended.  Any severe soiling may be cleaned by using a damp cloth.

Outdoor Canvas Blinds:

To ensure a longer life of your outdoor blinds:

  • Keep them rolled up only when they are dry and clean

  • Use the pull down stick to operate the blinds from the centre

  • Keep the blinds as clean as possible i.e. if you are mowing your lawn or cutting any shrubs, or cleaning the guttering, remember to pull your awning up.

  • Do not leave your blinds partially retracted for long periods of time.  Try and use them fully extended if using them for long periods.

To take care of your Outdoor Blinds:

  • To remove any dirt, brush the fabric when dry with a soft brush.  A damp cloth or light hosing may remove some dust or light dirt.

  • Never scrub fabric.

  • Remove immediately any organic matter (such as bird droppings, leaves, grass cuttings or soil).

  • Remove any mildew, as it appears, by brushing with a soft brush first and the hosing off well and leaving the awning to dry out in the sun.

  • Do not use soaps, detergents, solvents, liquid cleansers or strong bleaches.
