PVC or Mesh Outdoor Blinds?
Whilst PVC blinds are ideal when you want a waterproof seal. They are not so good when you require a sun-proof room. The PVC being transparent means you have a problem with sunshine coming through and making the room extremely warm. Much like a greenhouse, the PVC blinds during the summer will cause a lot of warmth! However, they still create a barrier and are a valuable addition to any home, especially in colder or wetter climates.
If you want the blinds for an all-around solution, then we would highly recommend the mesh. They also stop 99% of the rainwater, as even the holes in the blinds are too small for the rain to do anything but trickle down the material. The blinds stop the sun’s harshest and are even an ideal material to watch an eclipse through! This material is tried and tested in the Australian Outdoor Blind market. With the weather being from one extreme to the other, you know you will be getting a very versatile product that is strong and durable enough for all seasons.

How do you wash outdoor blinds?
PVC Blinds require more maintenance than mesh blinds because they tend to show a lot of dirt.
To wash the PVC blinds, it’s best to use a hose and rinse it down thoroughly before cleaning and washing off dirt and debris by hand. Use a mild soapy solution that is diluted with lots of water.
Be wary of using brushes as it’s possible to scratch the surface of the PVC. It’s a good idea to wipe them dry with PVC blinds to avoid watermarks from ruining the view. Use a dry cloth or paper towels to dry all the water on the blinds.
Mesh Outdoor Blinds are easier to clean than PVC blinds. Mesh blinds are manufactured using a high tensile polymer with high abrasion resistance making them less susceptible to Descartes and damage during cleaning.
Use a soft cloth or sponge with cold soapy water you a hose to rinse the blind after cleaning and dry in the sun. It’s important not to roll up the blind when it is wet as it will be heavier and would cause more resistance on the motor. The blinds are less flexible when wet and could cause damage to the blinds over the long term.
It’s also a good idea to clean bird droppings off the blind as soon as possible as they contain chemicals that can discolor the blinds. Be sure not to use a high-pressure cleaner on the blinds, resulting in damaged or sagged blinds.
