Window ShutterWindow shutters need attention during home cleaning just like anything else in your house. Cleaning the shutters will improve the look of your home exterior or interior and prevent the dirt from accumulating. Shutters are made of different materials such as wood, vinyl, and aluminium, among others. The cleaning and maintenance for each type vary. Here’s the general maintenance guide for every type of shutter.

Familiarise yourself with the shutter material

Modern shutters are made from a material such as vinyl and aluminium, and not the usual wood. These materials are easy to clean as you only need to wipe them with soapy water using a sponge, and then rinse them off. In cleaning shutters made of wood, you need to be careful when using water. Water may warp the wood. You need to use a small amount of water and dry the shutters immediately. Remember, never soak the material. You can avoid using water to lengthen the lifespan of your wood shutters. Instead of using water, use a vacuum or a soft brush to remove the dust, recommends an expert from Timber Interiors.

Clean them regularly

To maintain cleanliness, the interior shutters should be cleaned at least once a week. When cleaning, use soft cleaning tools and products to avoid damaging them. The exterior shutters should be cleaned at least once a month. Avoid using abrasive objects as they can damage the finishing of the shutters.

Shutters can make a great difference in both the interior and exterior of your home. They add insulation to your house. These window treatments control the amount of light entering your home and provide privacy. They also come in different materials and designs that make them decorative as well.
