The Ultimate Guide To Cleaning Blinds

From Roman blinds to verticals, roller blockouts, and timber Venetians, Australians love the modern appearance of window blinds. Allowing in the sun as you please and providing shade and privacy when you need it, blinds are the perfect combination of functional and stylish. And when they’re well-maintained and cleaned on a regular basis, window blinds can improve the look, atmosphere, and even the air quality of your home.

The importance of cleaning your blinds

From simple dusting and stain removal to advanced ultrasonic methods, blinds require regular cleaning. Deep cleaning your blinds requires specialist equipment and professional experience to keep them in tip-top shape. When you get your blinds cleaned regularly by the experts, you can avoid mould growth, minimise allergies, and promote a healthy home environment.

FAQs

Which blinds are the most popular in Australian homes?

Australian homes feature a variety of blind designs, with different materials, configurations, and mechanisms available to choose from. Popular blinds include material and fabric blinds, dual roller blinds, Roman blinds, holland blinds, honeycomb blinds, plantation blinds, vertical blinds, timber blinds, micro blinds, and Venetian blinds made from aluminium and PVC. Various materials are used to create different blinds, from soft fabrics and durable plastic products to strong metal and natural timber designs. And at Jim’s Cleaning, we have the expertise needed to clean and repair all of these options.

What is the best way to clean blinds at home?

To clean your blinds effectively, it’s essential to use the recommended cleaning techniques. While anyone can dust their blinds to keep them looking fresh, comprehensive cleaning often involves external help. For example, ultrasonic blind cleaning technology is the best way to look after your blinds on a long-term basis. This cleaning is fast, incredibly efficient and completely safe — with no dangerous chemicals or moving parts. Whether you have fine fabric blinds or robust timber products, ultrasonic cleaning will have your blinds looking like new in no time. 

How does ultrasonic blind cleaning work?

Ultrasonic cleaning is a simple and highly effective way to clean your household blinds. While simple dusting and damp washing can be beneficial for some blinds, ultrasonic technology provides a whole new level of cleanliness. By combining sound waves with a gentle cleaning solution to create bubbles and blast away debris, ultrasonic cleaning creates an implosion that’s strong enough to remove grease and grime. Despite the power of this technology, ultrasonic blind cleaning is still gentle enough for delicate fabric blinds.

How to wash roller blinds at home?

Roller blind cleaning may look easy to clean, but it can be incredibly challenging. While cleaning can usually be done with a simple damp cloth, many fabrics are resistant to moisture. A vacuum cleaner can also be effective, but special attachments are required to clean most blinds without causing damage. In addition, roller blinds are far from equal, with a range of fabrics and treatments used during the manufacturing process. While some blinds have a glossy appearance and can be cleaned with a damp cloth, ultrasonic cleaning is the preferred solution in most situations. To clean your blinds properly, you need to avoid causing damage first.

Can blinds be professionally cleaned?

Instead of going it alone, you can use the services of a professional blind cleaning company. Not only does this provide better results, but you also limit the risk of damaging your blinds. Fabric and PVC window blinds are known to crease and break very easily, and timber and aluminium products are incredibly easy to scratch. Water damage can also cause serious problems, both to blind fabrics and control mechanisms. Why risk damaging your expensive blinds when you can organise blind cleaning services from the experts at Jim’s Cleaning?

How much does it cost to have blinds professionally cleaned?

Some people avoid having their blinds cleaned professionally due to the costs involved — but this is a false economy. Professional cleaning doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, the right blind cleaning services will save you money on repair bills and replacement costs down the track. At Jim’s Cleaning, we provide advanced ultrasonic blind cleaning services from just $99. This includes a complete cleaning service for up to three Venetian blinds, with a maximum size of 2 sq/m per blind. We also have many other $99 specials, so what are you waiting for?

What is the best way to clean blinds without taking them down?

If you want to clean your blinds without taking them down, you’re in for a difficult challenge. While simple dusting and damp wiping on hanging blinds is possible, complete cleaning requires a different approach. 

At Jim’s Cleaning, we’ll remove your blinds safely, take them off-site to perform deep ultrasonic cleaning and rehang them for you. This is the only real way to restore your blinds and make them look like new. While this comprehensive level of cleaning is not needed that often, it is advised twice a year in most situations.
