Shutter and Blind Treatment Care

Updated 8 months ago by Judith Rafada

How do I care for my blinds and shutters?

Blinds and Shutters should be regularly dusted or wiped with a soft dry cloth to minimise build-up of dust and other contaminants. Use a duster, soft dry cloth or gently vacuum with an appropriate brush attachment.

Cleaning frequency will vary from least once a week, sometimes more often, depending on environmental conditions, such as pet hair, pollen etc.

Generally, blinds (Vertical, Holland Blinds, Aluminium Venetians and Sun Screen Blinds), may be cleaned by wiping with warm soapy water and a damp cloth. Avoid using abrasive or harsh household detergents or cleaning products.  

IMPORTANT: Do not use water or water with soap-based products for cleaning wood-based shutters as the water may damage or warp the wood. Instead, dust or wipe with a soft cloth as per the instructions for other blind types. 

PVC or painted/synthetic shutters may be cleaned as per the instructions given above for general (non-wooden) shutters and blinds. 

When cleaning shutters with soap and water, ensure that shutters are again wiped down with clean water to ensure that soapy residues are removed. Finally, shutters may be dried with a soft dry cloth. 

This advice does not apply to Roman Blinds. Please refer to care advice given for drapery products.
