Caring for PVC Window Shutters
The fresh look of installing new window shutters can brighten a room and give your house an overall feeling of cleanliness. It can be disappointing when shutters start to gather dirt and lose their shine so we’ve put together this helpful guide to caring for your PVC window shutters.
Few tips on how to take care of your PVC Window Shutters:
Cleaning your Shutters
PVC shutters are renowned for their durability and ease when it comes to maintenance. Vinyl or plastic shutters are the most convenient type of window covering when cleaning is concerned. Dusting your shutters regularly will reduce the frequency of cleaning that they require.
If your shutters are installed internally, simply wipe them over with a clean, damp cloth – you can use a basic detergent-water mix if you wish to remove stickiness or harder stains. Then wipe them with a dry cloth to prevent water marks or you can simply let them air dry.
External PVC shutters are even easier to clean. Considering they are prone to collecting mud and dust, ensure your windows are closed and simply hose them down thoroughly. Again, especially with vinyl shutters, it is recommended that you dry them with a towel or cloth to prevent unsightly water marks.
Be Careful When Opening Shutters
Pay close attention to the way that your shutters naturally close as forcing them to change directions can cause extensive damage. Tilt the louvres open gently with your hand and avoid slamming or tugging. Although modern shutters are designed to be durable and long-lasting, constant friction or maltreatment can wear them down, reduce their lifespan and cause you unnecessary expenses to repair them.
Maintaining Impeccable Quality
The Vogue range of PVC shutters may imitate wood but they are designed to never warp, crack, fade, chip or peel. Even intense, Brisbane sunlight is no match for these window coverings so maintenance will be a hassle-free process. If you do find the paint is accidentally scratched, use a small foam brush and touchup paint to cover manageable sections of damage at a low cost.
Contact your Brisbane shutters expert to look up the exact colour match of your window treatments.
Call for a Service
As a testament to their high quality, PVC shutters are installed with excellent warranties of up to 20 years. You will receive a copy of the warranty in case any manufacturer faults do arise. Do not hesitate in calling for a professional service in the case of:
- Broken or damaged panels
- Protruding staples
- Difficulty with opening or closing your shutters
- Individual louvre problems
