Cleaning Your Roller Shutters

Roller shutters are often thought of as a piece of industrial security that doesn’t really tick all the boxes when it comes to aesthetics. After all, it is not easy for a giant piece of aluminium to blend into the picturesque image of a small village centre. Luckily, cleaning your roller shutters will make all the difference when it comes to appearance and can even help them run smoother too! Read on to find out more information…

Dirt and Grime

General everyday use means that dirt and grime will build up over a period of 6 to 12 months so you should always make sure to schedule a deep cleaning on a regular basis to ensure that your shutters are in tip top condition. With this said, you can also clean your shutters on a monthly basis using a household cleaning detergent, warm water and a soft sponge.


Sometimes a roller shutter may become scratched and the result can often be unsightly. Luckily, there is a way to make the marks look more attractive without breaking the bank. For example, soft and shallow paint scratches can be fixed with a scratch remover, more severe marks should include a professional and scratches that penetrate the metal can be sanded down with metal sandpaper.


Teenage youths are always looking to cause havoc which means that you should be prepared to tackle vandalism when it comes to roller shutters. Luckily the damage they inflict can often be removed with a lot of hard work. In fact, having a laminate applied on the top surface of your shutter can make it easier to remove graffiti with everyday household products. Here at ABC Industrial Doors we like to take initiative when it comes to making our clients happy and helping you maintain your roller shutters so they are easy on the eyes is certainly one way to do that! In fact, you can even enlist intentional art to be displayed on your roller shutters when they are closed in order to continue advertising your services.
