  1. Use A Gentle Cleanser

Make sure you use a gentle cleanser to clean the shutters. This will ensure that all the dust, build up, and pollutants from your cars are all removed with its help. To do so, mix the cleaner with some warm water and go over the whole door to remove all the dirt.

  • Brush

To properly clean the roller shutters and remove all the dirt and other things from it which may be hindering its functioning, use a cleaner and spray it onto the door. Then with a brush, brush it all off. But make sure to brush in a manner that does not affect the alignment of the roller shutter as that may have an effect on its working.

  • Clean Water

After doing the cleaning, use clean water and rinse down the roller shutters. This will remove all the left behind dirt, and build up. Washing the roller shutter will mean that you need to dry them now. For this, all you need to do is to take a soft cloth and wipe down all the remaining water and clean the shutters properly.

  • Cleaning The Guides

To clean the guides there are two ways that you can follow.

Firstly, you can raise the shutters all the way up so that you can easily clean the guides. Then while using your brush with soft bristles, you can easily sweep and remove the dirt and product build-up from the guides. While going through this process, make sure not to dislodge the wool pile, as that would lead to a hindrance in the functioning of the shutters.

The other way of cleaning guides is with the help of running water. You can use a hose to shower water on the guides, this will automatically remove all the buildup from the guides. However, while doing so, you will need very low pressure, as high pressure could do more damage than good. Before you close the shutter, however, allow the guides to completely dry down, as damp guides may lead to fungus and bacteria development, which is very unfavourable.
