Mould on Drawn Down Voile Blinds

From time-to-time we get testimonials sent in which are very well worded, and potentially useful to future customers who may have similar curtains to clean.

Here is a testimonial (with images), about how a recent client removed mould off voile drawn down blinds using Curtain Magic Mould Remover… and the technique he used:

“Hi Toralee

I thought I’d offer you a bit of positive feedback about your
excellent product. We live in the UK and have a bedroom a bay window
which has heavily lined curtains and secondary draw down blinds (in
voile) fitted to the window frames themselves for daytime privacy. There is
an en-suite shower room attached and although we have now improved air
extraction, humidity build up combined with condensation on the
windows had resulted in severe mould affecting the blinds. (See pictures below)

An estimate for replacing the blinds came to £300 and even worse, the
lining of the curtains was starting to show mould through contact with
the blinds. The curtains are handmade and a lot more expensive than

I had tried spot bleaching the mould on the blinds in its early
stages, to no effect. Demoralised, we had ignored the problem which
had now progressed to the stage seen in the pictures. I picked up
your advert on the Internet and with a “nothing left to lose”
mentality ordered some on-line. It arrived by airmail in under two
weeks, I’ve treated the blinds and curtains and the results are
startlingly successful – see pictures below.

Your video on the Internet shows fairly early mould successfully
treated in a few minutes with one application. I thought I’d share my
experiences treating terminal mould which required a rather different
technique. One of the problems, as can be seen in the close-up
picture, is that the mould colonies had grown from the outside through
the fine lattice of the blind to affect both sides, having grown to an
appreciable thickness.

I removed the blinds from the windows and laid them out on a wooden floor
on newspaper and saturated the affected areas, turning the blinds over to
spray the other side after an hour. This had a rather modest effect.
I repeated that process three or four times during the day during which
time I estimate that about 50% of the mould was treated. The thickened
areas were very resistant, however.

I then dried out the blinds overnight and took a fine nylon brush to
each of the thickened mould colonies (which seem to have been “killed
off” by the first day’s treatment). This reduced them to a flattened
out stain on the blind and generated a lot of black dust. Fortunately
I do not seem to be allergic to mould dust…

I then followed this up with a second day’s treatment, spraying each
side at 1 to 2 hour intervals again, by the end of which time the
blinds were pretty much good as new. A bit of a mission but what a

The treatment to the lining of the curtains was very straightforward
and although it took three or four applications over a two hour
period, progressed very similarly to the depiction in your video.
I still have about 100ml left out of the litre I ordered and will
pounce on the first sign of any recurrence I see.

At just over £30 for a litre it’s a bargain. Thanks a lot.
