Bamboo Venetian blinds will add elegance and cosiness to your home. However, they do require some maintenance to remain as new for as long as possible. No need to worry though, this isn’t complicated or time-consuming. Learn how to properly care for your bamboo Venetian blinds so they’ll always look perfect.

Consider material maintenance when choosing your Venetian blinds

If you’re still in the process of choosing the right material for your new Venetian blinds, you should first learn about the materials’ maintenance requirements. The material properties of bamboo make it an excellent choice for slats. Not only do they provide excellent shading, but they’re also flexible and won’t be damaged easily. In terms of future maintenance, this means that you don’t need to “handle with care”, as there’s no risk of bending like there is with aluminium slats, for instance. On the other hand, it’s a good idea to tend to your bamboo Venetian blinds from time to time, especially if you want to keep them looking like new.

Even regular cleaning products will do

You may have already come across cleaning products specially designed for bamboo Venetian blinds. You can’t go wrong with these, but they really aren’t essential to keep your Venetian blinds in perfect condition. With the right cleaning method, you will achieve excellent results even using many commonly available cleaning products. In general, we recommend avoiding any oils or protective coating – bamboo Venetian blinds are processed and treated during manufacturing to last for many years while withstanding the elements.

For routine cleaning, all you’ll need is a slightly damp cloth and any commercially available furniture cleaner. You can “assault” the dust with the brush handle of your vacuum cleaner. Before you start cleaning your bamboo Venetian blinds, close the slats in the outermost position and proceed with cleaning in a top-down motion. People generally recommend “dry” cleaning of natural materials, but a damp cloth will certainly do no harm to bamboo Venetian blinds.

In addition to cleaning the slats, don’t forget to do a cursory inspection of the other parts such as the fabric strips, covers or controls.

Keeping bamboo Venetian blinds clean is no rocket science

How to definitely not clean your bamboo Venetian blinds?

To cover all our bases, let’s talk about how you should definitely not clean bamboo Venetian blinds. First of all, avoid abrasive cleaning products and solvents. Be sure not to use a rough sponge or wire brush on bamboo slats, as this could cause irreversible damage to the surface. Other than that, maintenance of bamboo Venetian blinds is not rocket science, and you can easily do it during your regular cleaning routine.

If anyone tries to tell you that bamboo Venetian blinds are difficult to maintain, that’s simply a myth. Compared to many other materials, it’s even easier and less risky. You don’t need any special products like in the case of wood slats, and you don’t need to worry about the slats bending with careless handling like in the case of aluminium. Simply follow the few simple principles mentioned above and your bamboo Venetian blinds will always look like you bought them only yesterday.
