Product Support - Care and Cleaning
While Perfect Shutters’ product comes closer to being totally maintenance free than other shutters on the market today, they will become dirty as does a freshly painted house, a new car or any other product which is exposed to atmospheric conditions. Generally, your shutters can be cleaned satisfactorily with the use of an ordinary garden house. If this does not do the job we suggest the following.
1. With a garden hose and soft bristle brush wash your shutters gently.
2. Where soil is of a stubborn nature, the following cleaning solutions work well :
a. 1/3 cup detergent (Tide for example)
b. 2/3 cup Tri-sodium (Soilex for example)
c. 4 quarts of water
In certain geographical areas where mildew may be a problem, substitute one quart of 5% sodium hydrochloride (Clorox for example) for one quart of water in the formula above
Where your shutters are extremely dirty, it is recommended that you start washing from the top and work down to the bottom. Apply the cleaning solutions and let stand several minutes in order for the dirt to loosen. The shutters and siding must be rinsed thoroughly to avoid staining and/or streaking.
