Have you noticed how dirty your office blinds are? Dust, dirt, and grime can accumulate on the louvers, making them look dull and unappealing. Not only does this affect the appearance of your workspace, but it can gradually degrade the surface of the blinds. Let’s discuss some tips to help keep your office blinds looking consistently clean.

How to Keep Your Office Blinds Consistently Clean

Office blinds may be metal, wood, plastic, or even covered in fabric, but they will all get dirty equally and need attention on a regular basis. It’s a good idea to incorporate your blinds into your regular office cleaning schedule. Office blinds can be cleaned weekly, biweekly, monthly, or more often, if necessary.

What is the Best Way to Keep Blinds Clean?

Here are some easy tips to follow for maintaining your office blinds.

  1. Duster Whether your blinds are wood, plastic, or metal, dusting is the number one cleaning task to employ. A large but soft wool, microfiber, or cotton duster will cover the surface of the blinds well. If the dust just gets pushed around, a light multi-surface dusting spray on the tool can help.
  2. Vacuum This tool is good for extra dirty blinds. Using the brush attachment, gently approach each section of the office blinds to remove all areas of dust. A duster can assist with missed areas or sections that are difficult to reach. Another approach can be to close the blinds and work in sections of the entire blind. Make sure to work the back and the front to remove all the dust.
  3. Microfiber Cloth Your office blinds might need more attention and extra focus on details or tight spots. A lightly damp microfiber cloth can help with that. Wiping each blind or section can deep clean your blinds and prepare them for consistent maintenance. Wood blinds should receive a gentle wood cleaner instead of water to prevent damage.
  4. Washing Plastic and metal blinds can be removed for washing, if necessary. They can be placed in a large utility sink or tub with mild soap and water for soaking. After a short time – maybe 15 minutes – a soft rag will help loosen and remove any dust or dirt buildup. Rinse the blinds and lay them out to dry, fully extended.
  5. Maintain Taking the time to dust and spot clean your office blinds is the biggest cleaning time-saver and consistency tip. Your office blinds will always look their best if they are on a regular cleaning schedule. It is one of those details that helps your office shine.

How to Clean Greasy Blinds

Greasy, grimy blinds are unappealing and unsanitary. If, for whatever reason, your office blinds are excessively greasy or excessively soiled, a professional cleaning team might be the best option. If the blinds can be removed easily, follow the vacuuming and washing steps above to do them yourself.

A cleaning solution designed for grease like a dish soap can be a good cleaning product to use. Read the directions and make an informed choice before diving in. It’s often best to start gently to avoid damage or problems that can be repaired.

How do You Prevent Dust Build-Up on Blinds?

One of our favorite cleaning topics is regularity. Cleaning your blinds as regularly as you clean your office space is what is going to bring you a consistently nice-looking work environment. Blind shouldn’t be forgotten. They will look bad and take more work to clean after neglect.
