How to Clean Vertical Blinds


One of the benefits of vertical blinds is that they do not show the dust as much as horizontal blinds but a regular cleaning regime is still necessary to ensure that they do not become excessively soiled. A new blind should be frequently dusted (using a feather duster) or vacuumed using a brush attachment so as not to damage the vanes – don’t forget to clean both sides of each vane. Any minor marks can generally be wiped away with a damp cloth.

If your blind has not been cleaned regularly, or if you have inherited a blind in a house move, you may find that it needs more than just a light dust or vacuum. It is possible to clean the blind whilst in-situ but the vanes can be easily removed and this will enable you to carry out a thorough clean. Unhook your blind from the clips at the top of the rail and detach each vane from the bottom chain. If your blind has weights at the bottom of each vane make sure you also remove them prior to cleaning. Although vertical blinds are relatively durable you should treat them with respect and avoid bending the vanes – fold loosely if you need to.

If the blind is excessively dirty you may wish clean the vanes outside. Using a hand wash liquid and a sponge, work from one end of the vane to the other using gentle scrubbing movements then turn it over and do the same on the reverse. Do not use abrasive cleaners as this could damage the fabric. If you have chosen to clean your blind in the garden you could use the hose to rinse and then hang over the washing line to dry. If you have to clean the blind indoors the bath is a good alternative and the vanes can then be gently dried with a towel or hung over a shower curtain rail before you re-hang.

Some fabrics are machine washable but do ensure that you check the manufacturer’s cleaning information before doing this. If you want to use your washing machine, select a low temperature cycle for delicates and avoid biological detergents. Rub a little extra detergent into spots where the vanes are particularly soiled before the machine wash.

Once the vanes are dry, replace the weights and refit to the top rail and bottom chains. Your efforts will be well worth it as your vertical blind will look as good as new.
