How do internal roof window blinds work?

Internal roof window blinds are designed to help you easily control and adjust the levels of light entering through your windows. An added benefit is that they also offer more privacy if your house overlooks neighbouring properties or busy streets. Whilst their light and privacy controls are impressive, internal roof window blinds are lightweight yet durable.

Which materials and tools do I need to clean them?

FAKRO internal roof window blinds are designed to require minimal maintenance. A simple microfibre or soft cloth will be enough to wipe away dust. For heavier dust and dirt buildup, a damp cloth will work perfectly.

How do you clean internal roof window blinds?

There are two steps to cleaning and maintaining your blinds.

1. Regular dusting

Like other fixtures and furniture, blinds can accumulate dust over time, especially in busy living and working areas. Cleaning and removing dust is simple; lightly wipe the surface with a feather duster or soft cloth. This will gently remove dust, dirt, and any debris from the blinds without damaging the material or structure.

2. Wiping clean

If you find more stubborn dirt buildup on your blinds, use a damp cloth to wipe them down. It’s important that you only dampen the cloth with water rather than harsh cleaning products to avoid damaging the material. The blinds will naturally dry in the sunlight coming through your windows.

When cleaning your internal roof window blinds, you can also check for any signs of wear or damage that might have occurred over time with use. This can include fraying along the edges or even broken components from heavy handling.

Maintenance tips and safety precautions


  • Keep your windows closed whilst cleaning your internal roof window blinds
  • Clean your blinds as part of your regular household maintenance, ideally every 1-2 weeks
  • Do not use excessive force to avoid damaging your blinds
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals and cleaning products – a simple soft cloth and water will work on heavier build-ups of dust and dirt
