How To Clean Your Zipscreen Blinds

‘Tis the season for outdoor entertaining, so it’s likely your Zipscreen Blinds are coming in really handy about now! Ideal for pergolas, balconies and verandahs, Zipscreens are transparent for uninterrupted views and they reflect more than half the heat from the sun so they reduce the UV rays entering your space, protect your furniture and create the perfect outdoor oasis to escape those scorching summer temperatures.

How To Clean Your Zipscreen Blinds

Zipscreen Blinds Cleaning Guide

Here’s how to make sure your Zipscreens look great and last you well into the future.

General Cleaning Guide

  1. Regularly remove dust from the blind fabric by using a vacuum cleaner or soft brush.
  2. Clean your blinds with lukewarm soapy water and rinse off immediately with clean water.
  3. Dry with a soft cloth or sponge.
  4. Do not use solvents, abrasives or chemicals under any circumstances.
  5. Zips should be sprayed with silicon spray for easy operation – Do not use CRC, WD40 or any oil based lubricant.
  6. Your environment will determine the frequency required for cleaning:
    1. Within 5km of the coast: Every 1 to 2 months
    2. Over 5km from the coast: Every 3 to 4 months
  7. PVC Zipscreens are susceptible to a variety of environmental factors so certain consideration must be made when caring for your blinds. PVC can expand and contract up to 5% in normal temperature conditions.
  8. To prevent the PVC from discolouring, rippling or distorting, avoid leaving blinds rolled up for long periods of time particularly in the hot weather or if the blinds are wet. As much as possible, leave your blinds in the lock down position.
  9. We recommend regularly using EasiClean/Guard on all PVC products as this also helps to protect and minimize scratches. Remember that with proper care and maintenance you are not only retaining the aesthetics of your blinds but are also contributing to their longevity, making for many years of functional beauty.
