Home Organisation Tips For Busy Parents

When we started having kids, I realised it was much more difficult to keep our home organised with young children running around than it was when there were only two adults in the house. Our normal routines just didn't work well anymore, and the clutter and chaos seemed to be increasing by the day. We had to change how we organised our home by streamlining our belongings, altering our daily routine and developing new habits. In time we learned some quick and efficient ways to keep the key areas in our home clutter-free. I started this blog to share our experiences of transforming our home and pass on our tips for organising your home when you have young children to look after.

Keep Your Motorised Blinds in Good Shape with the Following Tips

Motorised blinds are the best option for tech-savvy outdoor blinds. They perform their basic function by ensuring privacy whenever you are home, but also have a technological edge over other traditional types of blinds. Motorised blinds come with batteries and remote controls for ease and convenience of operation. This type of blinds requires proper maintenance so that you do not compromise the delicate electrical components. If you have just installed motorised blinds in your home, here are some important tips you need to keep them in good shape:

Keep Blinds Away from Harsh Weather

Harsh weather is notorious for damaging equipment and installation at home and motorised blinds are no exception. Even though these blinds are designed to stand up to the outdoor conditions, some extremities will lead to permanent damage and necessitate very costly repairs. For this reason, it is imperative to roll up the blinds during bad weather to reduce the size of the area exposed to the bad weather and minimises the possibility of damage.

Clean Them Regularly

Over time, dust will accumulate on the surface of the blinds, especially the ones fitted outdoors. Dust not only dents the looks of the blinds, but it can also interfere with the working of the electrical components. It is important to clean the blinds so that dust does not accumulate on them. For effective cleaning procedures, be sure to use the following tips:

Vacuum the blinds: vacuuming is the best way to clean fabric shades or blinds. To minimise risk, don't raise the vacuum over your head or try doing the cleaning on elevated ground. Use a brush attachment on the vacuum cleaner so that it is easy to clean any hard to reach areas on the motorised blinds.

Rubber sponge: for vinyl motorised blinds, you can use rubber sponge for the best cleaning results. You don't need to use soap or water to wet the surface of the blinds. Just rub the rubber sponge on the surface of the blinds to get an immaculate clean. In fact, using rubber sponge is the best mechanism for motorised blinds. Since it doesn't use water, there is no risk of causing a short circuit around the batteries and other areas.

Lamb Wool: You need lamb wool for regular dusting of the motorised blind. This is needed to get rid of loose dust particles before thorough cleaning sessions are needed. Lamb wool can be used on different types of blinds.
