The beauty of most window treatments is only obvious when they are in a clean, sparkling, and maintained condition.
However, no matter how careful you are with your blinds, they still have the potential to get dirty.
Motorized blinds are quickly saturating the market as more people are beginning to see their appeal.
If you’ve got one for your home recently, or you are about to, then you may want to read this article discussing how to clean and maintain motorized window blinds.
Unlike normal blinds, cleaning motorized blinds require more technicality. However, with some determination and carefulness, you’ll get it done in no time.
Use a Rubber Sponge
You can get this in almost any hardware store. Rubber sponges are very effective at removing dust, grime, and dirt from blinds. And the best part, they don’t need to be soaked with water, thus, you can use them and be assured that you won’t damage the motorized or electrical aspects of the blinds.
Use Lamb’s Wool
This is another tool you must have in your cleaning arsenal. Lamb’s wool dusters are soft, and effective and won’t cause any damage to your blinds.
As we all know, vacuuming is one of the important steps in any cleaning process.
However, in this case, you don’t need to use the regular, heavy vacuums, after all, lugging them over your head isn’t exactly a walk in the park.
Simply get a brush-attached vacuum cleaner. Ensure that the brush is soft so that you won’t damage the blinds.
Don’t Soak or Spray
Never spray water or cleaning solution directly on the blinds as it can affect the fabric of the blinds as well as the motorized parts.
If it is important that you use a cleaning solution, pour a small amount on a piece of cloth or brush and use it to gently wipe the blinds.
