Work environments can make all the difference when it comes to workplace well-being and professional productivity, no matter where your employees are based, however. Office blinds, whether they are at your home or office or office building, need attention periodically. Today, we at Baker Sandoval Cleaning have created a quick guide on how to clean office blinds.
What is the Easiest Way to Clean Window Blinds?
This workplace fixture is often neglected since your office blinds are unlikely to be the focus of your cleaning efforts. Workplace windows offer an all-important glimpse of the outside world, and a much-needed dose of vitamin D. In order to help make offices feel lighter and cleaner, keeping their fittings clean and dust-free can brighten the appearance of workspaces. Below are the basic steps to cleaning your office blinds.
Cleaning Roller Blinds
Depending on the material they are made from dictates how they are cleaned and the cleaning products you should use. Prior to you getting to the scrubbing, make certain to check the label. Simply unroll the blind, spray the surface with an appropriate cleaner, and wipe down with a cloth for a quick clean. On the reverse side of the blind, repeat this process. Remove the blind from the wall and pop it in a bath or bucket full of water mixed with a mild detergent for a deeper clean. Before hanging it up to dry, allow the blind to soak for 1-2 hours. Reattach your freshly cleaned blinds once they are dry.
Cleaning Venetian Blinds
Since they are narrow and prone to collecting dust, these horizontally slatted blinds can be tricky to clean. Regular dusting with a feather (or fluffy) duster is essential to keep venetian blinds looking their best. Consider investing in a venetian blind cleaner, which is a handy gadget that will dust multiple slats simultaneously for an even more convenient clean. A damp cloth and multi-surface spray should do the trick if in the event your blinds become sticky, stained, or need a deeper clean.
Cleaning Vertical Blinds
For your vertical fabric blinds, be sure to research which cleaning products are suitable. You can give your blinds a regular wipe-down using a damp cloth to keep them in good condition equipped with this information. You could also give go over with a vacuum cleaner; the soft brush attachments work especially well in order to quickly remove dirt. Dust them down, treat any stains with a suitable stain remover, then unhook them when it is time to give your vertical office blinds a deeper clean. Your blinds can be soaked in warm water and a mild detergent, once loose, just like the roller blinds above. Before popping them back in place, be sure to hang them up to dry.
