A 5 Step Guide to Cleaning your Interior Plantation Shutters

Interior plantation shutters can be a beautiful addition to your home and add just the look you are wanting. As with any item you bring home though, there is the reality that sets in that eventually you will have to clean it and clean it well.

Here is a 5-step guide to cleaning your interior plantation shutters to not only prolong their lifespan but to also keep them looking as new as they did the day they were installed.

  1. Step 1 is to remove all the debris and dust off the shutters. The easiest way and quickest way to do this is with the soft brush vacuum attachment. It will suck up all the dust and debris making the next step easier.
  2. After you have removed as much of the debris with the vacuum as possible, wipe down with a dry cloth. This should help remove the majority of any remaining dirt and debris. Make sure to spend particular attention to the spaces between the shutters and areas that may accumulate dust readily. By this stage, the majority of the cleaning should be completed.
  3. The next step is to wipe your interior plantation shutters down with water. You will want to try and avoid harsh chemicals unless you need to remove grease or other ‘stuck on’ issues. You also want to avoid using too much water, especially with wooden shutters, as it can cause them to warp and bend.
  4. Once the blinds are fully washed, they need to be dried properly. Don’t leave water on them at all or you will see spotting and water damage. This is vital as it will also help prevent dust getting stuck on any areas that you have cleaned. If it’s a sunny day, leave the blinds open. Open your windows to let fresh air help ‘blow dry’ the blinds. If the weather isn’t great, aim a fan at the blinds to help blow dry.
  5. Enjoy your newly cleaned interior plantation shutters and know that they will last that much longer with your special care and attention.

Cleaning and maintaining your interior plantation shutters doesn’t have to be difficult and is simply a matter of ensuring you remove all debris, wash them down and dry thoroughly. Doing this on a regular basis will make sure you can enjoy them for many years to come.
