When you purchase blinds, you must make it a point to take care of them. If you don’t, dust particles will gather on the slats and the health of your family will be at risk. It’s not hard to care for them anyway. You just need to do these easy-to-follow tips:
Use a Feather Duster
It won’t take too much of your time to simply dust the layers on a regular basis. All you need to do is to open the blinds and run the duster in a left to right direction from top to bottom. You must not do it in a zig zag direction or you’ll just spread the dust around. If you do that, you may even inhale the dust.
Use a Vacuum Cleaner
If you observe the slats only have a few visible bags of dust, it would be better to vacuum them weekly. You’ll save time and clean the hard to reach areas. If you have lots of blinds in your home, it would be better to invest in a heavy-duty vacuum cleaner. Those machines are easy to operate and produce better results.
When the blinds are closed, you can clean them using a sponge and soapy water. Of course, you need to make sure you wring it out after every wipe so you’ll be ensured of using clean water. Don’t forget to do this to both sides so turn the blinds over when you’re done with one side.
