General rules for looking after your blinds and curtains

Even though we recommend applying different techniques to clean and look after your blinds and curtains, there are some general rules you should follow to ensure they will last you years to come.
•             Don’t let moisture to settle on your blinds, especially wooden blinds, shutters and soft cloth blinds and curtains.
•             Always use clean cloth to wipe and clean your blinds.
•             Avoid using cleaning products and detergent where possible to avoid damaging fabric and the operating mechanism of your blinds.
•             Avoid using oil or lubricating any part of your blind to prevent damage to the operating mechanism or material.
