Drapes and curtains can easily accumulate a lot of dirt and stain which can be very tiring to wash. They can be really heavy when wet and may take a lot of time to air dry. These window dressings may be pretty to look at but a lot of households are now transferring from curtains to made to measure blinds because they are very practical and can be easily maintained. |
Made to measure roman blinds and made to measure roller blinds are the most commonly used types of made to measure blinds because they are both longer-lasting than the other kinds of blinds. Below is a guide on how to clean and maintain these kinds of window dressings.
Cleaning made to measure roman blinds and made to measure roller blinds requires less effort because it is a fairly easy task. But before you get excited and begin undertaking this job, you should first check if the blinds that you purchased can be washed. Some made to measure roman blinds require dry cleaning because they are made up of fragile and delicate materials so washing them on your own might cause the fabric to shrink or be damaged.
Made to measure roman blinds and made to measure roller blinds can be manufactured in many different kinds of fabric such as cotton, silk, linen, hemp or suede. In some cases they can also be made from wood or specially coated fabrics to extend their lives longer. As the made to measure blinds become exposed to the harsh rays of the sun, dust, rain and other natural elements, they will be needing regular vacuuming, and washing from time to time.
If the blinds are seriously stained or soiled and their fabrics can be washed traditionally, they can be cleaned in a washing machine using mild detergent. Be sure that before you put the blinds in the machine you have already removed plastic attachments or metal rods. And then to be certain that nothing wrong will happen to your made to measure roman blinds or made to measure roller blinds, use the “delicate” program of the machine to avoid possible damage. Hang the blinds to dry them out naturally or choose a hot, sunny day so the blinds may dry through the heat.
If your blinds are not really dirty but only have spots of stain on it, you could use a spot removing solution to remove the stains. Just use a damp cloth and follow the instructions listed on your purchased spot removing solution.
