How to Clean and Maintain your Outdoor Blinds

Clean Your Outdoor Blinds

Is it possible to make my home outdoor’s looks beautiful while making the space comfortable? Yes, it’s possible by installing quality outdoor blinds as they make the space private and shield you from the sun’s harsh weather and at the same time enhances the aesthetics of your home. Nevertheless, with use, blinds can get damaged due to the constant exposure to the outside components. Dust, dirt, bird droppings and mould if left unattended can cause permanent damage. Well, it is possible to protect the pristine looks and functioning of your blinds.

4 ESSENTIAL TIPS TO CLEAN YOUR OUTDOOR BLINDS ARE LISTED HERE BELOW:

1. IT IS IMPORTANT TO CLEAN OUTDOOR BLINDS REGULARLY

To shield against dirt and dust formation, it’s important to clean your outdoor blinds at regular intervals. Using a soft microfibre cloth or a brush with soft bristles, clean both the sides of the outdoor blind softly. Refrain from rubbing or scrubbing hard because it can harm the fabric. If you’re using mesh outdoor blinds, you can use a brush and a garden hose to eliminate dust and dirt stuck in the fabric weave. Nevertheless, refrain from using a high-pressure hose. Ideally, you should use warm soapy water or even better is a cleaning product that is recommended by the manufacturer of the blinds. However, never use oil, petrol, kerosene, detergents or cleaning products that contain alcohol or solvents, as they can harm the fabric.

2. IT IS VITAL TO KEEP YOUR OUTDOOR BLINDS DRY

After cleaning is performed, allow the blinds to dry fully. Pull them back only after they are fully dry, else moulds can easily build-up on the blinds that can stain or spoil the fabric. Refrain from cleaning the blinds during humid weather, as the blind may not dry out entirely in such conditions, leading to mildew and mould formation hazard.

3. REMOVE TREE AND ANIMAL DEPOSITS PROMPTLY

Tree debris, dust, soils, bird droppings and vegetable waste are some deposits that you might want to remove right away from your outdoor blinds. If overlooked, these deposits settle in the blind fabric and cause the fabric to lose its colour and shine. Eventually, the stains can damage the fabric. If you come across any plant, bird or soil marks that are difficult to clean then just leave a sponge dipped in warm water on the mark till the spot gets well-moistened. Then, take the sponge out and using clean water, wash the spot.

4. DON’T USE HIGH-PRESSURE CLEANERS

Refrain from using rotary brushes, steam cleaners and pressurised water cleaners on the blinds. Avoid using any rough cleaning material as it can scratch and spoil the fabric.
