Shutters are a great window treatment option for blocking the light and enhancing the look of your home decor. However, dusty and grimy shutters can have the opposite effect. Caring for your shutters keeps them looking aesthetic. Luckily it’s easy to care for your shutters with a few easy steps, here are some tips to help you get started.
Use the Right Cleaning Products
Shutters can vary in make and material, from vinyl and aluminum to wood and real wood, to name just a few. Some cleaning products can cause unwanted effects if used on certain types of materials so make sure to do a little bit of research beforehand.
Regularly Wipe Away Dust
The best way to maintain your shutters is actually one of the easiest. To keep your shutters looking new, all you really have to do is regularly wipe off the dust. Use a clean cotton cloth or microfiber cloth to wipe between the individual slats of your shutters. You can also use a damp cloth to help remove dirt buildup.
Increase Dust Resistance
A simple trick for keeping your shutters dust-free is to give it a wipe with a dryer sheet after each dusting. The anti-static properties of the dryer sheet will help repel dust and lead to fewer cleanings. You can also use a cloth sprayed with anti-static spray, which is perfect for aluminum, vinyl, painted wood, and faux wood shutters.
