Ways to Clean Outdoor Wood Shutters

The Outdoor wood shutters is important to regularly maintain its cleanliness so it will last long. It is best to clean your shutters without using acidic cleaning materials as the acid in them can cause harm to the shutter.

  • Vacuum Cleaner

For two to three times a month, you must thoroughly vacuum your shutters to remove all the excess dust. It will be harmful to the health of everyone living in the house if you let dust particles build up in the shutter. You must remember to plug the vacuum cleaner into a nearby socket so it won’t get pulled out while you are doing the chore.

  • Dusting Cloth

For at least once a month, dust the shutters with a dusting cloth. Don’t forget to spray it with wood polish as it would not have any effects if the cloth doesn’t have anything on it. You are going to need a small ladder in order to dust the shutters completely. Don’t try to stand on a wooden table as they can easily break if you do that. They are not meant to support your weight so you might get injured if you decide to do that. If there is someone available, have him hold the ladder steady while you do the task so you won’t fall off the ladder. It is certainly better to be safe than sorry. Also, you must remember to not be too rough in doing the dusting.

  • Toothbrush

If your shutter has hard to reach areas, you can clean them by spraying polish on a toothbrush and applying it gently to those areas. Of course, you must be sure you won’t use the toothbrush for your teeth again after doing that.

If you don’t have time to clean your outdoor wood shutters, you can assign someone else in the house to do it. Don’t wait for someone you love to get sick because of the dust particles there. You must mark the calendar for the days it will get cleaned.
