Blind Maintenance: How to Clean Aluminum Blinds

When you invest in aluminum blinds for your windows, you expect them to look great for many years to come. But if you don’t take good care of them or clean them the wrong way, you may have to replace your blinds much faster than expected.

We strongly recommend that you avoid using harsh chemicals on your blinds whenever you clean them. Instead, read below how you should be cleaning your blinds so they can look great for a very long time. 

How to Clean Aluminum Blinds

Aluminum blinds are one of the easiest to clean because of their smooth surface. Dust or wipe them every week, and your blinds should stay clean and beautiful. 

If the dirt is stubborn and difficult to clean using the above method, you can use a cloth dampened with a mild detergent to clean it. If you’re struggling to remove sticky grime, you can even put the blind in a bathtub filled with soapy water. Be careful and keep the water away from the mechanisms to make sure it doesn’t stop working.

Make sure you have full access to the entire surface, so close the blind completely. After washing, carefully rinse the blind with clean water and hang it up to dry, but keep it out of direct sunlight. Be careful not to bend, fold, or crush the vanes. To remove grease from blinds installed in the kitchen, put the degreaser directly on this area and clean it gently.

Having beautiful aluminum blinds is more than just keeping it clean. A professional installation ensures high-quality blinds that can withstand everyday use.
