Maid Service Direct Blog Offers Suggestion On How to Do the Tedious Task of Cleaning Blinds

Maid Service Direct is proud to be one of the most reputable house cleaning services in and around the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area. Part of that reputation is due to its solid commitment to customer service. Something that the company displays in a variety of different ways. This includes sharing their many years of cleaning experience with those that like to take a little more hands-on approach when it comes to taking care of their homes. A good example is a recent blog post that the company added to its website that gives instructions on how to clean blinds. This is a task that many consider being among the most tedious of home cleaning chores.

This new blog post started by saying that it’s no secret that blinds tend to be a dust magnet and a whopping 31% of those that took a recent home cleaning survey stated it was their least favorite object in their home to clean. Much of which has to do with not only how dirty they usually get but also because they have soft services that easily move at even the slightest touch. The new Maid Service Direct article then went on to suggest three different methods to clean blinds; one involved cleaning them in place and the other two requires the blinds to be taken down. Dusting was the preferred method that was mentioned to clean blinds in place. For this method to consistently work, it suggested that this be done bi-weekly using a ‘Swiffer’ type brush or by using the brush attachment that is included with many home vacuums.

The article also talked about how the process should be done with the blinds facing one direction and then repeated with the blinds flipped to the opposite position. Blind cleaning method #2, as was previously mentioned, involved a home’s blinds being taken down and placed in a bathtub. This is something that will most likely be necessary if the first blind cleaning method that was discussed has not been done regularly. Once removed from the wall, the blinds need to be placed in a bathtub that is half full of water with a little dishwashing soap or degreaser added to the water. The homeowner should let the blinds soak for about 15 minutes so the dirt on them can be loosened and then clean them by hand with a cotton glove or soft cloth.

The last blind cleaning method mentioned in this reputable Philadelphia cleaning services blog involves removing the blinds and cleaning them outside if the weather permits or there is a suitable covered area on the premises. It stated to hang the blinds up on a clothesline, railing, or another object they can be easily attached to and then sprayed off with a garden hose. The blog article specifically stated not to use a pressure washer for cleaning the blinds because it may ruin them. Once again, the article suggested using cotton gloves or cleaning cloths to wipe each side of a blind’s slats and then give them a final rinse. This new blog ended by saying that blind cleaning is also one of the specialty cleaning services that they at Maid Service Direct are always willing to take on for home or business owners.
