It is important that you make sure that you regularly clean your blinds in order to prevent dust or dirt building up. This can be done very quickly and simply by wiping them either with a soft brush or a soft clean duster. The third way to clean wooden venetian blinds is to use your vacuum cleaner to which the brush attachment has been joined.

You can use water to help clean these types of blinds, but you should never fully immerse them in water. If you do this will affect the sealant that they are coated with to protect them to deteriorate and will eventually cause the slats in your wooden Venetian blinds to warp. The best way to remove stubborn marks on these kinds of blinds is to wipe them over with a damp not water logged cloth and a small amount of detergent.

If you want a window covering that will not only allow light in but provide good levels of privacy from the outside world. Isn’t it about time you considered having some wooden Venetian blinds installed.
