How to Clean Your Wood Blinds

Let’s be honest, we normally don’t clean our window blinds every time we clean! Cleaning your window coverings can be time-consuming, especially window coverings with a lot of slats. Even though it can take some time, it is important to clean your blinds regularly to keep them looking like new. This will keep your home clean and reduce dust and allergens too. Budget Blinds is offering you some tips on how to clean your wood blinds:

Before You Start


    It is important to do your research before you clean your wood blinds because you don’t want to do the wrong things causing damage to your blinds. To ensure a successful and safe cleaning here are some practical tips:
• Never get real wood blinds wet
• Make sure to spray cleaner on a cloth and not directly onto the blinds
• Twice-a-year do a deep clean (holiday cleaning and spring cleaning)

Dusting

    Dusting your blinds should be part of your regular cleaning routine so it keeps your blinds looking new. The best way to clean your blinds is by extending the blinds as far as they go and keeping them in the closed position making them flat. After that side is cleaned, rotate them and repeat. The three most popular methods when cleaning wood blinds are:
• Clean with a feather duster or soft dust cloth each side of the blinds
• Place a sock over your hand and run your hand back and forth, over and under each slat
• Use wood cleaning sprays or tools to clean each slat, front and back

 

Vacuuming


When you have more time on your hands vacuuming your blinds is ideal to get a really deep clean. It’s super important to use a vacuum with a soft brush attachment so it isn’t rough on your blinds. Open your blinds while vacuuming one slat at a time. If your blinds are higher to reach, start by using a secure ladder and have an assistant in case you need help. After you have vacuumed all the slats front and back, finish the job by wiping the slats with a dryer sheet or spray your blinds with anti-static dust product.

Another way we can support our veterans is by wearing a poppy! Many individuals can be found at malls, grocery stores and schools offering the pin-on poppies and accept cash donations that benefit our veterans. For more information about this please visit  http://www.legion.ca/remembrance/the-poppy

Get the kids involved! A letter or postcard with a few kind words and thanks from our young canadians would mean so much to our Armed Forces. Visit the Postcards for Peace with the Government of Canada at: http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/remembrance/get-involved/postcard-for-peace

From our team at Budget Blinds Serving South East Saskatchewan we hope you have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your Remembrance Day activities. Thank you to our Armed Forces for their service.

Stay up-to-date on the latest trends and decor selections with this post all about the latest fashions.  

Woven Woods In Living Room with Drapery

    This photo features beautiful deep blue drapery with woven wood shades. Woven woods are a beautiful handmade window covering that use natural fibres like hemp, jute, kenaf, and flax to offer a soft and elegant look. Our line of eco-friendly woven woods are created with high quality organic materials to bring a gorgeous and natural look. 

Woven Woods in Dining Room

    Woven wood shades have many feature options such as cordless, top down, and automation. These shades can also be fabric lined in light filtering fabrics to add more privacy or room darkening fabrics that offer room darkening. Woven woods have started to pop up in show homes around Canada. We recently had a home builder select a beaufitul chocolate brown woven wood for their show home in Regina, Saskatchewan. The photos of this space (below) show how the  rich texture in the window coverings really help bring the space together and give a modern meets boho-chic style.
