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.
