What is involved in shutter maintenance?

Shutters have become the #1 choice for window treatments. They add beauty to a home, energy efficiency, and can bring sophistication to home and décor. Shutters are very low-maintenance, and easy to take care of. If they are located indoors, you will want to use a soft dust cloth and furniture polish. You should take the furniture polish and spray it onto the cloth. You should never spray the furniture spray onto the shutters. Then wipe down to remove all dust and dirt that gets onto the shutters. You can also use a feather duster to get in between the slants.

To clean plantation shutters that are outdoors, use a gentle dish soap added to a bucket of water, and a soft cloth. Wipe down the plantation shutters to remove dirt and grime, then you can gently use a water hose without any hard force or power to rinse the soap and dirt from the plantation shutters. Depending on where you live, you should try to clean your shutters at least once a month, or more if the area that you live is heavily dusty and dirty.
