Cleaning and Caring for Your Window Blinds

vacuum blindsCleaning Instructions

Window blindsĀ are designed to require minimal care and cleaning; all that is necessary is regular dusting and periodic vacuuming.

  • Dusting: Regular, light dusting maintains a like-new appearance of most blinds, shades, sheers, shutters and window panels. CAUTION: Do not use magnetic cleaners such as a dusting mitt on light-dimming fabrics. This will damage the light-dimming backing.
  • Vacuuming: Vacuum gently using the brush attachment on any vacuum cleaner. Most products may be vacuumed using a vertical stroke.
  • Blowing: Use a can of compressed air or a hair dryer (non-heat setting) to dust off selected window coverings.

Household Cleaning Products

Not all window treatments can be spot cleaned. You should refer to your manufacturer’s product guidelinesĀ to determine if this process is safe for your product.

If spot cleaning is an option for your product, we recommend using a mild detergent (no additives and non-abrasive) and a clean, white cloth.

Methods for Removing Bugs

To prevent damage to delicate fabrics, resist the urge to use any type of stick, wand or handle to push out pests that are caught in your window shades.

We recommend gently blowing them out using:

  • A can of compressed air.
  • A hair dryer on a cool setting.
