Following our ‘How to…’ guide to cleaning Conservatory roof blinds, in this article we show you how to keep your conservatory side window blinds spick and span too.

Pleated blinds in your conservatory

Pleated blinds are a popular choice for conservatories as they are lightweight and versatile, allowing the sunlight to flood in while keeping the cold out. Pleated blinds are also very easy to keep clean as part of a regular cleaning routine. 

Light cleaning Pleated blinds

For light cleaning, you have two options. Firstly, simply wipe over your Pleated blinds with a clean, dry cloth. This will effectively remove any surface dust and grime.

Alternatively, vacuum your blinds using the upholstery attachment on your vacuum cleaner. Before you do this, please check the suction levels of your cleaner.

Very powerful suction can damage the pleats, so adjust the suction to its lowest level if possible. Brush the upholstery attachment gently over the blind, working from the top to the bottom. To avoid overstretching, use a step stool for hard-to-reach areas.

Maintaining Pleated blinds
Poorly fitted, older conservatories can suffer from condensation which can seriously impact your window dressings, causing the build-up of mould and water staining. It is essential that your conservatory is adequately ventilated to avoid problems caused by excess moisture.
