Care & Cleaning of Window Coverings
One of the questions when we purchased your Custom made Window Coverings was, “How do we clean them?” Although it takes a small amount of upkeep, it is worth it to clean your blinds on a regular basis. This prevents build-up of dust and actually takes less time in the long run.
The following is a short, easy-to-follow guide on recommended cleaning methods and care of your window coverings.
- Dusting: Dust lightly and regularly with a feather duster to maintains a like-new appearance for most blinds, shades and Shutters.
Light Vacuuming: For deeper cleaning, vacuum lightly with the upholstery attachment of your vacuum cleaner.
Spot-cleaning: Removal of dirt and spot cleaning (excludes wood blinds, wood shutters and natural shades): Spot clean with a soft cloth or sponge, a mild detergent and warm water. Blot gently and allow to dry completely. Be very careful with fabric shades so as not to crush or wrinkle the fabric.
Compressed air or hair dryer (non-heat setting). Use to blow dust off selected window coverings.
Special Caution: DO NOT use strong detergents or spot removers; Dry cleaning window treatments is NOT recommended.
