It’s time to roll up your sleeves and clean your window coverings for the New Year. Luckily, homeowners with Thermalite Shutters will have no trouble getting their window coverings spic and span. Follow these simple tips for cleaning Thermalite Shutters.

Use a Feather Duster

If the dirt and dust isn’t too bad you may be able to just clean the Thermalite Shutters with a fuzzy feather or static duster. Just 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 more detailed cleaning you can swish the duster between each louver. An aerosol duster (can of compressed air) also works well for a little added oomph. While you’re cleaning, some of the dust will end up on the floor – which is why you clean that last.

Stay Away from Toxic Chemicals

If your Thermalite Shutters are in need of a deeper clean, all you need is a rag and some warm water. There’s no need for toxic chemicals. They aren’t good for you or your family, and they definitely aren’t good for your Thermalite Shutters. In fact, chemicals, abrasives and ammonia-based cleaners can damage the high-quality painted surface. Save your money and protect the health of your family by simply using a damp rag to clean your shutters.

With somewhat regular cleaning your Thermalite Shutters will stay clean and beautiful for years.
