The Blinds can last a long time if taken care of properly. Here are some basic tips for keeping your blinds clean and increasing their life.
Like any wood furnishing, woven blinds should be dusted regularly to keep them looking new. Use a soft clean cloth. Lower the blind to its full length, and wipe briskly to remove any accumulated dust.
Blinds may also be cleaned by vacuuming them with the brush attachment of a vacuum cleaner.
Another way to clean blinds is simply by wiping them with a soft, damp cloth.
The Operating Mechanism
Operate the blinds, (raise and lower them) at least once every two months to ensure that the mechanism is working properly.
