Here is a little fun fact for you… did you know that one of the first commercial uses for ultrasonic cleaners was the blinds industry? This became one of the preferred methods for cleaning Venetian and vertical blinds, as well as mini blinds in the 1980s. And yes, ultrasonic cleaners have been around that long!
Tough Spaces… No Problem!
Blinds are notorious for being difficult to clean. Even if you dust them regularly, greasy buildup will occur, especially if the blinds are in the kitchen area. Blinds are like a gathering ground for all airborne particles. The bad news is that when you open and close your blinds, these particles can often become airborne again. If blinds go uncleaned for long periods of time, you could be creating a health hazard in your home. So, what are the best ways to clean blinds?
Traditional dusters probably do more harm than good. They may be removing the particles from the blinds, but all they are doing is sending all those particles back into the air. You can clean each blind by hand with a damp cloth, but that would take considerable time. We have another solution… an ultrasonic cleaner.
The Best Cleaning Method for Blinds
As we noted above, businesses that clean blinds quickly realized that ultrasonic cleaners were the most efficient way to clean blinds. They can be removed from the window, placed in the tank, run through a cleaning cycle in just a few minutes, then dried and returned to the window. Because of the speed of the process, cleaning companies that specialized in this task could double and triple their workloads.
Why Are Ultrasonic Cleaners So Effective?
The simple answer to this question is “bubbles.” Ultrasonic cleaners use ultrasonic waves to create microscopic bubbles. Those bubbles carry the cleaning solution to the items in the tank, then implode when they come into contact with a surface. Now, we realize that sounds like a violent incident, but it is far gentler than most traditional cleaning methods as well as power washing.
This implosion carries the cleaning solution to all surfaces, cracks, and crevices of whatever is in the tank. Once the cycle is complete, there will no longer be a trace of the grime that was on the blinds when they go in. Best of all, the entire cleaning process will take less a half hour.
You don’t have to be a cleaning professional to use an ultrasonic cleaner. If you are a homeowner, a tabletop unit would be idea and best of all, you can clean plenty of other items in the ultrasonic cleaner. From jewelry to guns to, yes, mini blinds, everything will come out looking like new. To talk to one of our experts, give us a call at 888-989-5560.
