Outdoor Roller Blinds And Their Maintenance
Roller blinds are those objects that not only offer simplicity, but also offer elegance when fitted over windows. The best part is that due to their wide variety, it is easy for you to choose the one that blends in perfectly with your décor. They not only act as an obstruction against light, but also promote the insulation of heat most of the material that we carry comes with certified UV protection which means the light coming in will have the UV rays cut out. Another important function of the Outdoor Roller Blinds is to prevent rain water from splashing into the house on a raining day, to make our yard or balcony useable as houses in Singapore is getting smaller and I believe that is the main reason why most people in Singapore would get an outdoor roller blind installed in their yard or balcony. Operation of the blinds is really simple there is only a chain pulley for you to lift up the blinds or bring down the blinds.
Like any other category of blinds, outdoor roller blinds also require some maintenance and care to ensure their durability and long lasting life. As they are used outdoors there will be a stainless steel cable on the left and right corner of the blinds that we call wind guides. The function of the cable is to hold and guide the blinds in an up or down direction so that the blinds will not be lifted up when there is a strong wind, without the cables guides holding the blinds down the outdoor blinds are unusable. The correct way of installing the wind guide is to make sure they are neither too tight nor too loose. If the cables are installed too tightly there will be a possibility of the cable begin detached due to strong winds as the tension is too huge. In contrary if the cables are left too loose there will be a possibility that it will eventually go out of shape due to strong winds. Experience is an important factor to consider when it comes to installing of an outdoor blind. An inexperience installer will cause more problems than solving. Cleaning of the outdoor blinds are easy, you basically just need a sponge or a cloth and ingredients such as a mild laundry detergent or even hand soaps. As the blinds are meant to be outdoor and it means the materials are all waterproof.
The job becomes quite easy as the material used is washable. To start off, you can use the vacuum cleaner to suck up and dirt or dust from the surface. Once you’re done with this, use a sponge with some hand soap and rub the sponge on the blinds to remove the stubborn stains first before splashing water on the blinds to wash off the soap it makes it really easy if you are cleaning the blinds on a raining day.
At the end of the day it’s always good to consult a professional before getting the blinds installed.
