Wooden Blind Maintenance

If you have wooden plantation shutters or plantation blinds in front of your windows then you should probably know how to make sure they stay in good shape for a long period of time. In this article we will talk about the proper way to care for wooden plantation shutters or blinds and what you need to consider when cleaning them out.

Starting with the time frame for the cleanings. Each piece of furniture in our houses requires a different sort of cleaning procedure and time frame. Not every furniture item fits in to the regular time span of monthly cleanings and the wooden plantation shutters Dallas are such items. To have properly clean wooden plantation shutters, you need to make sure that you are cleaning between once a week to once every two weeks. If you have any pets that have their fur flying about, or live in an area that has a lot of dust blowing around, or have cracks in your house that let dust or dirt in, then you should definitely stick to cleaning them once a week. The main reason for this is not that the wooden plantation shutters will deteriorate in condition, but that cleaning them once a month will be a lot harder to do.

As dust accumulates on the wooden shutters, wiping it off with a damp cloth will just smudge the wood and leave behind stains. Now while getting rid of stains themselves is also not that hard, the difficult part is that the cleaning needs to be done very delicately. If too much pressure is applies the wooden plantation shutters or blinds could actually become damaged. This is why a regular cleaning with a dry but soft cloth or brush will ensure the wooden shutters stay clean and are in no danger of damage.
