There are two main uses for window blinds. The first is obviously privacy - and effective way to keep out prying eyes. However they were originally developed in ancient Egypt to block out the sun and reduce the heat coming into the buildings. These blinds were created from reeds. Velux blinds are stylish and high quality . If you treat your material blinds with care, they will rarely need cleaning. Yes, it's a good idea to get them dry-cleaned every few years (please check the manufacturers' instructions) but if you make sure you only move them with clean hands (not newspaper hands) then they should have a long clean, happy life.

When cleaning your venetian blinds it is always a good idea to check the manufacturer's instructions. But we recommend that you clean them every week to avoid a serious build-up of dirt that's harder to remove. A damp cloth is usually sufficient to remove dirty finger marks (even sticky ones), and sometimes it's easier to clean them all when they are closed and flat. Finally, remember that blinds are quick and easy to replace if you fancy a change to your home in Edinburgh.

If you have children, the safest products are cordless or those with concealed cords which allow you manually move the blind around. Tensioned cords can achieve the same effect. If you are measuring your own windows make sure that you use a metal tape as the cloth based tapes can stretch and show inaccurate results.
