Roller Blind Cleaning Instructions :
- Dust with soft brush regularly to remove any dust.
- Lightly dab a soft cloth with warm damp water.
- Never roll up blinds whilst wet – allow time to dry completely
- SHAW Fabrics – Surface dust should be removed with a duster or soft cloth. Fabric may be wiped with a damp sponge and dried with a clean cloth.
- Never use abrasive products or solvents/industrial based cleaners. Do not roll up fabric which is damp.
- Simple inspection and cleaning 3-4 times a year
- When inspecting your shutter, you should look for any
build-up of dirt or other obstructions in the guides and
gently remove them, being sure not to damage the
felt in the guides. This will ensure that your shutter
continues to run up and down smoothly by not catching
or getting stuck.
- Inspect the curtain. Like any other outdoor product,
it will have a build-up of dust or dirt on the curtain,
but it also may have leaves or bugs that have lodged
between the profiles or slats, preventing the curtain
from shutting completely. You will most likely notice
this from the inside of your home as you will see light
beginning to leak through your shutter when it is fully closed.
- To clean your shutters simply use a soft cloth or brush
with non-abrasive or corrosive detergents. Depending on
the build-up of dust and dirt a simple brushing over will
remove it all. Gently wipe over the whole curtain to
remove all the dirt.
- Use of Water: Ensure that you do not get water inside
the pelmet especially if your shutters are operated
electrically. Water squirted into the pelmet can get in
contact with the motor and cause you problems.
- Difficult Stains: Contact Shaedz of Alice for advice.
