Easy To Clean Window Treatments In Washington DC

November 05, 2020

Any window treatment shines brighter and lasts longer when kept clean. But if you're like most people, you don't have much time for routine care. You need easy to clean window treatments in Washington DC that don't demand much time or effort when the dust settles. 

Cloth curtains and drapes attract every piece of dust and must be taken down and laundered. Blinds tend to be a bit easier, but they are delicate and have numerous hard-to-reach edges. But, if you want the easiest to clean window treatments, look no further than faux wood interior shutters.

Curtains, Shades, and Blinds Can Be Tricky To Keep Clean

If you need window treatments that are a snap to keep neat, then veer away from curtains, shades, and blinds. Curtains manufactured with soft fabrics tends to trap dust and dirt in their folds. You can do regular upkeep with a feather duster or hand vac, but with time, they will probably need to be disassembled and given to a dry cleaner for a professional cleaning. Some window shades use fabric panels, which can be a hassle to really clean.

Blinds tend to be difficult to clean as you have to dust each slat and navigate around the cords. Aluminum blinds have a tendency to snap during a cleaning. Hardwood or faux wood blinds are usually easier to clean, but can still be quite the time commitment. A gentle hand is required while cleaning blinds, as they can accidentally come loose. 

Polywood® Shutters Are Designed for Easy Cleaning

Polywood shutters use a recyclable solid wood composite that's custom-made to be very durable. Since they can resist chips, cracks, and warping, you can be sure that they will withstand some dirt, too. You can clean Polywood shutters by casually dusting or wiping off with a damp rag. The shutter is the easiest to maintain window treatment, no matter whether you select the smooth or wood grain finish.

Polywood Shutters Have An Easy To Clean Construction

Another feature that makes Polywood interior shutters so easy to clean is their construction. You probably think that cleaning between the louvers of interior shutters would be as difficult as cleaning vinyl blinds. However, these interior shutters are designed with your comfort in mind.

Just as they are made for maximum closure, interior shutters are also easy to open to reach all the little spaces with your duster. In fact, Polywood shutters have three sizes of louvers, and many customers get the largest size for simpler cleaning.

Polywood Durability Equals Cleanliness

Window treatments don't have to have dust on them to look dirty. Sometimes aged window treatments weather and look dilapidated in spite of how often you clean them. They can become cracked, and the finish will start to peel. Particles of paint or finish can begin to collect on your window sill or floor.

Occasionally, window treatments will age and become discolored over time, which may cause hard-to-remove stains. No amount of scrubbing can resolve these issues. The solution is durable, long-lasting window treatments like Polywood shutters that will never crack or turn yellow. Polywood even includes a lifetime warranty
