For any commercial property, the windows are a primary point of viewing and keeping them clean and stain-free is an important aspect of commercial window cleaning services. However, the window blinds and shades that adorn the windows also need to be kept clean, dust-free and hygienic to maintain the overall cleanliness of the property.
Whether the window blinds and shades are made of fabric, vinyl, wood or aluminium, they provide the much-needed light blocking and also help keep the room cool and private. But, at the same time, they tend to have an affinity for collecting dust and dirt.
But not to worry! You don’t have to pick and clean each slate of the blinds or remove them entirely to clean them. There are many simple tricks to achieve a comprehensive commercial window cleaning, including blinds and shades, using regular cleaning products and tools.
1. Get ready with the necessary tools and products.
Before tackling dirty blinds and shades, commercial window cleaning services in Melbourne need to have the following cleaning supplies at hand to clean the blinds efficiently.
- Vacuum Cleaner preferably with a soft brush attachment
- Micro fiber cloths that are excellent for dirt removal
- Warm water
- Dishwashing liquid soaps
- Secret ingredient – Baking soda
2. Close the blinds
The next step to effective commercial window blinds cleaning in Melbourne is to close the blinds to maximize the cleaning surface area of the blinds. They need to be fully lowered. Wooden blinds need to be completely closed, whereas vinyl or aluminium blinds with overlapping slates need not be fully closed.
3. Dusting Blinds
With maximum surface area exposed, it’s time for dusting the blinds. For commercial window cleaning with a vertical blind, the trick is to hold down the blinds at the bottom and use a micro fiber or vacuum cleaner with a soft brush with low suction power to wipe the dust off the blinds. It is good to begin at the top and dust downward to follow the blinds’ natural direction and not to fold the slats. A top-down direction in dusting will ensure that the dust falls away from the cleaned slates, even horizontal blinds.
Reputed commercial window cleaning services in Melbourne will not just dust the blinds on the visible side but also clean the slat’s underside. To do that, the blinds need to be flipped outward, so the underside is visible for cleaning. A similar top-to-bottom dusting with a micro fiber will be sufficient to remove surface dust seated on the blind’s slats.
5. For Soiled Blinds, use a Damp Cloth
When you have opted for regular commercial window cleaning services for your property, the dust settling over the blinds can be easily cleaned with a micro fiber. However, if left unattended for some time, the dust on the blinds could become more stubborn and set in its way. In such a scenario, a micro fiber cloth dipped in warm water will be able to clean better with a stubborn dust layer and achieve a better level of cleanliness.
The above five steps are the simple tricks to commercial window blinds cleaning in Melbourne. However, deep cleaning would be necessary if the blinds have been installed in a place like a kitchen where they are more susceptible to grease, grime, residue and become caked in.
Please take off the blinds and place them in a bathtub with warm water mixed with a generous amount of dishwashing liquid and a cup of baking soda. Soak the blinds in the water for about an hour, and then rinse them off with warm water. Wipe them dry, and the blinds will be as fresh and clean.
