Blind Cleaning and Repairs Fact Sheet
To maintain the standard and effectiveness of the window coverings over an extended period there are 3 items that need to be attended to:
Cleaning – window coverings are often just left to gather dust and grime for years. The deterioration in fabrics and in the appearance detracts from the home environment, cleanliness and sanitary aspects. In cases where insects such as flies are prevalent then the staining from fly excrement is particularly unhealthy. Mould build up in damp homes is also a big concern. Coverings should be cleaned on a yearly cycle for Residential homes and every 2 years in a Commercial office environment.
Repairs and Maintenance – these items when not attended to, accelerate the deterioration of your window coverings. In a household the frequent operation of the blinds will lead eventually to issues with components. The early identification of repairs will keep blinds in a good working order for longer. It is important that these items be identified as blind types, style and componentry do go out of manufacture.
For blinds that are less than 10 years old, parts are generally available and can keep the operation of the blinds in excellent working order.
Replacement items – through planned replacement of obsolete window coverings the overall cost of replacement can be managed and minimised due to the use of a single supplier and the preplanning for replacement. This will ensure that only those window coverings that need to be replaced are ordered. Blink n Clean can quote on replacements also.
There is a wide range of suppliers and pricing in the market.
Obsolescence will happen as blind manufacturers change the blind structures. This is expected after 10 years.
Blink n Clean offers a comprehensive cleaning and repair service.
We directly clean on site; Venetians, Roller and Wooden blinds.
Before removing coverings we will, with no obligation, check for any repairs, maintenance and replacements.
Cleaning Venetian Blinds:
Standard venetian blinds are either Aluminum Slats or can be Composite/pvc.
These blinds are taken down from their brackets, washed and scrubbed with eco-friendly soap suds. The head rail, all slats, front and back are cleaned.
Blinds that are left for years before cleaning properly, accumulate fly and insect deposits, dust and grime especially in kitchen areas, where grease will damage the blind very quickly.
As the blind gets older past 5 years any soiling on the blind will start to leave permanent marks that cannot be cleaned – painted will come off the metal slats.
The ladders and cords become brittle and fray leading to the blind not operating as it should. This causes more force to be used and for tilters, wands and brackets to fail.
So the regular cleaning of blinds leads to an increased useful life and maintains to the best possible advantage the look and operational quality of the blind.
Any issues with the blind operation are noted and advised to the owner.
Cleaning Roller Blinds: (Commercial)
There are now many types of Roller blinds with Sun filters, block outs and Thermals.
The onsite process can be applied to all except those with Thermal backing.
This material cannot be cleaned on site and we recommend it be cleaned by one of the specific laundries who deal with this fabric correctly to get the best results.
All other Roller Blinds clean up brilliantly with the onsite cleaning process. We use blue steam and force the dirt out of the fabric while sanitizing the blind.
Note: Sun filter and blockout Roller Blinds cover the same window space and attachment bracket. This counts as 2 roller blinds for the purposes of pricing. It is very useful with Roller Blinds to have a photo taken and sent to us so that this can be identified. The Blind count is critical to pricing and time that will be taken to complete a job.
As it is a material, bacteria and other germs accumulate and are unseen.
They are dried and rehung on site, same day
Cleaning Wooden Blinds:
True wooden blinds (normally Cedar) need to be treated very carefully. They are soft washed and dried.
Where required they are also re-oiled at the request of the owner. We use top quality Dyden oils.
Common repairs for Venetians - the age and make of blind will determine of parts are available.
