Thermalite Shutters are a beautiful addition to any home. Not only do they keep energy costs low and come with an excellent, comprehensive warranty; they are also very easy to keep clean. This is great news for homeowners who have made the choice to invest in Thermalite Shutters for their home. Here are some tips on the best ways to keep your shutters clean.
Don’t Use Toxic Chemicals
Do not use toxic chemicals to clean your Thermalite Shutters. They just aren’t necessary. Chemicals, abrasives and ammonia-based cleaners can damage the high-quality painted surface. They aren’t good for you or your family either. Instead, try some of these less evasive, more natural approaches that will get the job done in no time at all.
Good Ol’ Feather Duster
For regular cleaning, all you need to remove dirt and dust from your Thermalite Shutters is a fuzzy feather or static duster. Simply close the shutters and run the duster up and down over the front. Then reverse the shutters and do the same on the other side. For a little extra cleaning, just swish the duster between each louver. Try an aerosol duster (can of compressed air) as well to make it even easier. Just note: some dust may fall on the floor, so clean your shutters before cleaning the floor.
You can also use the attachments that come with your vacuum cleaner to quickly and easily clean your Thermalite Shutters. This is a great overall way to quickly remove dust from your shutters, including the smaller crevices and higher, hard-to-reach areas. You won’t even have to worry about dirt falling on the floor.
If all else fails, you’ll have to pull out the big guns. And by that, we simply mean warm water and a soft cloth. What could be easier? Just get a soft cloth, dampen with warm water and gently wipe each louver. Because of the high-quality painted surface, dirt, dust, and anything else that may have landed on your shutters will simply wipe away.
Skip the chemicals and forget about the elbow grease. It’s easy to keep your durable Thermalite Shutters clean and beautiful for years by using any of these easy methods.
