Having an easy-to-clean window treatment can help save you money and time and ease or prevent allergies. Plantation shutters are easy to clean, and here we take a look at how they compare to other treatments like blinds, shades, or curtains.
What window treatments would be easiest to clean?
Our plantation shutters are made of solid substances, never hollow or composite, and possess a smooth easy to clean surface. It is one of the best window coverings other than else like blinds, shades, curtains, and many more.
Blinds can be hard to clean with so many tiny blades that readily crack or bend, and with strings in the way, and often with excess blades bunched up at the bottom.
Shades and curtains require vacuuming or laundering frequently since they easily accumulate dust.
Plantation shutters don’t accumulate dust or pet hair easily, and they also block debris from entering the home through your windows. This cuts down on allergens and reduces the amount of time you need to spend cleaning.
Whether full height, fully solid, or half-solid, your bright white shutters will surely stay clean and bright!
If you are looking for the absolute easiest to wash shutters, select a hidden tilt rod. This way your slats are connected to one another with a thin metal rod on the back/side of every panel. This makes them easier to wash versus the central tilt rod that’s about the front/center of every panel.
The one exception to this would be if you opt for the high gloss option in our Designer Collection. Considering that the high gloss finish will show more fingerprints, we suggest choosing a central tilt rod if you want to restrict the number of visible fingerprints on your own slats.
The Premium Elm Hardwood range has a deeper wood grain and texture for a more rustic appearance. All our other shutter ranges will have a smooth surface. The Premium Elm shutters are still quite easy to wash but may require more dusting than any of our other ranges.
Shutters with a hidden tip pole will be the easiest to clean.
What to use to clean shutters?
All you need is a gentle duster or Microfiber cloth to wash your shutters.
For polyvinyl shutters in a kitchen or area where they may get stained or splashed, you may use a moist cloth or a solution of water and vinegar to disinfect and wash the shutters clean.
Polyvinyl shutters are a fantastic option for kitchen or bath places.
- Waterproof Shutters
For wooden shutters, avoid using any water or wet rags on the shutters. Use a dry cloth or a furniture cleaning spray to remove any fingerprints or stains.
- Wooden Shutters
