Keeping your home clean matters for not only aesthetic purposes, but for your family’s health and also to keep your possessions lasting a long time. Carpets, furniture, and even the frames that house your family photos should be cleaned regularly.
Windows and shutters should also have a basic cleaning schedule to them. Windows should be cleaned thoroughly at least twice per year, though certain windows might need cleaning more often. The glass of those windows should be cleaned at least once per week.
For window shutters, as often as you dust the shelves and other furniture in your home is how often you should clean your shutters.
Once per week for dusting
Shutters, whether they are wood, vinyl, or made of another material, should be dusted regularly. This is due to the fact that most of the dust in your home is actually dead skin cells. It doesn’t matter if you’ve had your home sterilized; dusting regularly is important to keep your shutters clean.
Use a damp cloth to dust the shutters. Get in between the slats, both top and bottom. Using a feather duster will only kick the dust into the air and it will settle back onto the shutters, onto other furniture, or even the carpeting in your home before long.
Once per month for more thorough cleaning
You should clean your shutters more thoroughly once per month. This would include soap and water and taking the time to get into all of the nooks and crannies of the shutter.
When you keep up with cleaning these shutters regularly, you’re going to enjoy them for a longer period of time.
You could also choose to have your shutters professionally cleaned every few months to ensure that they maintain their appearance and full functionality. If you want to learn more about how often you should clean shutters, or proper maintenance tips, contact Canada Custom Shutters.
