How To Clean Plantation Shutters In Cleveland

March 07, 2022

Whether you need to be scouring your entire home or making certain your place ready for a party in select rooms, dusting your interior shutters in Cleveland is a chore that needs to be done. If you have Polywood® shutters, cleaning is pretty easy. But can it be easy to maintain hardwood or regained wood interior shutters?

How To Clean Polywood Shutters In Cleveland

Cleaning your Cleveland Polywood shutters could not be any easier. You cannot find any permanent stains on the faux-wood composite, so you will not require unforgiving cleaners or magic erasers. Rather, here’s what you will want to get started:

  • A wiping cloth
  • A mildly moist rag

Using your hand towel, clean each louver of the window coverings to get rid of all dirt or dust. In the case of bigger smears or smudges, utilize a barely wet cloth to wash them clean. A mildly moist cloth is agreeable to employ to wash the complete shutter, as Polywood is water-resistant. But it’s advised to wipe your shutter upon removing the dirt.

How To Clean Wood Shutters In Cleveland

While washing real wood shutters in Cleveland, you must take care not to do anything that could damage the finish or reveal the surface to water. So, you should want these materials to clean your shutters:

  • A dust hand towel (microfiber works great)
  • A forgiving, dry hand towel

To clean the grime away from wood shutters, all that’s needed is to give the shutter panels and frame a fast do-over with a dusting hand towel.

For cleaning dirt, try rubbing with a dry cloth. You should never use a moist cloth. And avoid using a abrasive chemical cleaner, or else you might damage the finish of the surface.

How To Clean Reclaimed Wood Shutters In Cleveland

Reclaimed wood shutters might appear to be beast to wash, but honestly, they’re fairly simple. Here’s what you require:

  • A non-abrasive tool
  • A dry rag

For daily cleaning, you will realize the most satisfaction from a feather duster. By cleaning without a towel, you shouldn’t think twice about uneven edges or fragments. If you find any stubborn grime that ruins the reclaimed wood aesthetic, pat it using a heavier towel. Don’t try any liquid or soaps on a reclaimed wood shutter.
