How To Clean Your Las Vegas Plantation Shutters10/16/2015Darik Neilson A Simple Guide for Las Vegas Residents on How to Clean Shutters From the moment your plantation shutters are mounted in your Las Vegas house, they look beautiful and dust-free. Because our best-selling Polywood and Ovation Shutters will retain their quality for longer than 50 years, they can gather smudges and dirt throughout their life. So they remain a shining display in your home, learn some plantation shutters cleaning guides. Two Techniques To Clean Plantation Shutters So that your plantation shutters always shine, consider these two cleaning routines. A) Dusting Shutters To make sure your shutters retain their pristine beauty, they need a soft dusting every three to four weeks. Use a dry microfiber cloth or soft rag when you dust. Gently dust both sides of each louver. If it’s been awhile since you’ve dusted, you might need to wipe your shutters down with one cloth and then use a second, clean cloth to wipe them down again. Avoid using something abrasive like a scouring pad or vacuum attachment. B) Shutter Spot Cleaning It’s true that regular dusting keeps your plantation shutters looking amazing throughout their lifetime. But every once in awhile they’ll need something more to get rid of any occasional marks or build-up. Shutters located in rooms like a bathroom, mudroom, or kitchen will likely require more detailed cleaning. That’s due to the fact that shutters in these rooms are exposed to more things that cause smudges or marks like food or liquid. Depending on the type of shutters you have will determine the method you use to remove smudges from your plantation shutters. Polywood® Shutters Polywood shutters are the prefered type of plantation shutters in Las Vegas.They are made from a synthetic material and are easy to wipe down. Once you’ve completed dusting the shutter panels, wipe away any smudges or grime with a slightly damp cloth. Finally, wipe dry using a clean rag. Stay away from soap, cleaning agents or anything abrasive. A rag that you’ve slightly dampened with water is the best way to take away smudges or spots. Now, the smudges are gone and your Polywood shutters are clean! Ovation® Wood Shutters Getting rid of smudges on an Ovation shutter is very similar to cleaning a Polywood shutter. To begin, dust it with a clean, dry cloth. If you find yourself with a smudge that won’t clean off, then get a rag just barely damp with water and gently clean the shutter. Dry the area thoroughly when you’re done. Avoid any soap, cleaning agents or anything abrasive.In places in your home that are more likely to get dirt or dust on the shutters, choose plantation shutters that clean easily such as Polywood.
