You’ve made the incredibly wise decision to have Allview Shutters installed on your home windows, because you love the timeless and seamless look they provide and the versatility they offer. To find out how you can preserve your shutters and maintain that classic look, use the information below:
In order to keep your Allview Shutters from looking lackluster, use a soft, clean cloth to dust them thoroughly. A thin layer of dust will make your shutters look discolored and could permanently stain them over time. Dust once a week to avoid discoloration.
Dusting will go a long way in making your Allview Shutters last longer, but you’ll also need to use a damp cloth to wipe them down as well. Despite your efforts to dust, dirt and other particles will collect in the corners of the shutters, making them look old and dirty. To avoid this look, take a damp cloth and wipe the blinds until all of the dirt is gone. Then, take a dry cloth and soak up all of the moisture so that the hard water doesn’t disturb the finish.
Once a year, break out a soft sponge, a bucket of water, and a mild detergent and thoroughly clean your Allview Shutters. If you don’t have the time to dust and wipe your shutters once a week, then you may need to break out the bucket a few times a year. Remember not to scrub your shutters as this could damage the glossy finish and don’t leave moisture sitting on them for too long.
4. Be Gentle
The best thing you can do to preserve your Allview Shutters is to be gentle when handling them. Don’t swing the shutters too hard or yank on the lever as this could create dents in the wood and overused hinges that will need to be replaced.
