Excess moisture is wood worst enemy, so avoid getting wooden blinds wet. To dust them, use a clean, soft cloth, a feather duster or a vacuum brush. To put more life into the wood, use a cleaner made specifically for wood, such as lemon oil. Reading the manufacturer guidelines is more important than ever with wooden blinds, so check to see what products the company recommends before you use anything on them. Run a dryer sheet along each slat to keep dust and grime from sticking.
It is also less susceptible to fading and warping from sun and heat. And of course, while faux wood does a remarkable job of mimicking real wood, it just is not as attractive. The one exception to the rule is if you are installing your blinds in rooms with high humidity levels, such as bathrooms and kitchens. Real wood can warp in these environments, while faux wood made from a plastic polymer would not have the same problem.
The benefits do not stop with their good looks, however. Wood blinds are excellent insulators against heat and cold because of their solid wood construction. For the same reason, they provide your home with unrivaled privacy and are excellent protection for your furniture from the harmful rays of the sun. Finally, they are also incredibly lightweight, dramatically reducing the amount of daily wear and tear and extending the life of your blinds.
