The Stan Bond Guide to Cleaning Internal Blinds

Cleaning is rarely fun, but cleaning internal blinds seems to draw more than its fair share of ire when it comes to keeping them looking good.

So, we’ve pooled our more than 40 years’ knowledge and expertise to bring you a guide to cleaning internal blinds.

Cleaning Fabric Blinds

Fabric is a popular choice for Roman Blinds, Roller Blinds, Panel Blinds and Honeycomb Cellular Blinds – all of which can be cleaned easily:

Aluminium Venetian Blinds

Dust them first, and then wash them with a soft cloth. But, if you’ve got a few Aluminum Venetian Blinds in your home, save yourself some time by recruiting your bathtub.

First, decide whether or not to clean your blinds in batches, or just one at a time using these instructions:

Alternatively, use the sun to your advantage:

Timber Venetians

Most, but not all, Timber Venetian Blinds are treated with a finish designed to repel dirt and stains. Regardless, you can clean Timber Venetians with a quality furniture polish and a soft cloth.

Spray the furniture polish on the cloth and wipe each slat individually – avoiding the cords as you go.

If you prefer, you can use water, but don’t saturate the wood. Keep a dry cloth handy and immediately wipe the slat to prevent water spotting or warping.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical Blinds are one of the easiest to clean. Regularly run a lint roller – like the one you use to remove fluff from your clothes – over your blinds to remove dust, cobwebs and fluff.

Now it’s time to sit down, relax and enjoy the views – inside and out!

I had three sets of day-night blinds installed and a Veri-shade. Very happy with the total experience from Stan Bond. Professional advice, personal assistance, on time, easy to deal with. I benefited from the suggestions and care taken by each staff member. The blinds and shade look lovely and perform exactly as I had hoped.

It is so rare these days that a company offers such wonderful service and quality of product. From the very start to the very end, nothing short of pure excellence. Jenny was amazing with her suggestions and ideas, her patience very much appreciated and her ability to get the job done within limited timescales very much appreciated. This is my second experience with this company, internal shutters and curtains to go to complete my home and I will not even bother to get quotes elsewhere. Thank you Jenny, and all the team at Stan Bond - don't ever close your doors please!

We found Stan Bond to have really friendly, knowledgeable staff, they were reasonably priced, had fast turnaround and the installer was efficient and cleaned up after himself and was of minimal disruption to our office staff who were all working throughout the installation process. Very happy with the service, we would definitely use again.
