How To Clean Your Roller Shutters

Have you recently had roller shutters installed? Congratulations!

Roller shutters are the perfect addition to any home, offering a plethora of benefits to help keep you and your family comfortable and safe. Roller shutters are very low maintenance and require very little attention.

However, to help keep you roller shutters in the best condition possible regular maintenance is required to ensure everything is kept in working order. At Modern, we have put together some simple steps and great tips on how to keep your new roller shutters in perfect working condition and looking flawless.

To ensure your roller shutters are at their optimum efficiency and always working at their best, it is important to give them a proper clean at least twice a year.

What You Will Need:

  • Mild Detergent
  • Soft Cloth or Chamois
  • Soft Bristled Brush
  • Clean Water
Steps To Clean Your Roller Shutters
  1. With your soft cloth or chamois, mild detergent and clean water give your roller shutters a gentle wipe down. This will help to remove any built up pollutants and abrasive grime particles that have built up between the slats and on the guides.
  2. Spray your closed shutters with the mild detergent and use your soft brush or cloth to gently wipe the shutters in an up and down motion. You must ensure you use an up and down motion so the individual slats do not misalign. If the slats do become misaligned you could have operating issues.
  3. Rinse the shutters with clean water and dry with a soft cloth or chamois. Make sure to continue drying with a gentle up and down motion to ensure slats do not become misaligned.
  4. Finally, you will need to clean between the guides. To do this you will need to raise the curtain until fully open. Using your soft bristled brush, gently sweep any dirt or particles from the inside guide. When doing this be careful not to dislodge the wool pile. If you want you can also clean the guides with gentle running water from a hose. Remember to make sure water pressure isn’t too high. Allow the guides to completely dry before closing the curtain.

Modern Shutter Success Story C. Cutajar, Caroline Springs VIC

Modern were fantastic – They were easy to talk and nice and friendly people to deal with and I love the shutters they installed. They came out, explained how everything worked and how long it will take to install.

I am writing to say that I was very happy with the service I received an am equally happy with the effect installing the shutters has made. The drop in temperature in my home when closing them during the days is very noticeable in summer.

Modern Shutter Success Story J. Levitt, Sydney NSW

With more and more break ins, we felt it was a good time to give us some more security. We fitted 3 windows and found we’ve been sleeping much better. Modern were reliable, didn’t waste anytime, got on with the job and cleaned up after themselves.
