Wiping your window treatment down and getting rid of dust will most likely be all you regularly need to do. To dust, use a clean, dry cloth or a feather duster. Using a polyester cloth creates static that can attract dust, so sticking with cotton or microfiber cloth will give you better results.
In the case of some products, you can do a spot cleaning, but please check below for the specifics and whether that product is okay to spot clean. If so, use a dampened cloth. Do not use a cloth that’s dripping wet! You can also add a small amount of mild soap or detergent, if needed.
WARNING: You should not immerse any part of your blinds, shades or shutters in liquid. Using harsh chemical solvents can damage the components.
To dust use a dry cloth, feather duster or a vacuum with brush attachment, like with most shades. You can also get dust and debris off the shade with compressed air or a hair dryer on a cool setting. (Just make sure to move the shade into a position where you can get at every nook, cranny and cell!)
If you must do a spot cleaning, avoid any scrubbing or creasing the cells. Then leave the shade to dry out while completely lowered.
You can also get the shades cleaned with professional ultrasonic cleaning. But you must specify that they do not use harsh chemicals.
Veneta™ faux wood blinds are easy to clean: dust and wipe down the slats in both the open and closed positions. For tougher spots, use a cloth dampened with water and add non-abrasive dish soap.
Did you know that our SmartRail™ eliminates the need for a valance and clips? That’s just one less thing to dust!
Roller shades can be cleaned by dusting or using handheld vacuum. Make sure to lower the entire shade so you can get every inch of it cleaned.
For spot cleaning, moisten a soft cloth or sponge (not the scratchy, abrasive side). Add a mild detergent, if necessary, and then blot gently until the spot is out.
Once you’re done, remember to let the shade dry while fully lowered.
Roman shades can be cleaned by dusting with a dry cloth, feather duster, or with a handheld vacuum. Just lower the shade to get at all the fabric.
If you have to spot clean the shade, use lukewarm water and a soft cloth or sponge—whichever you use, make sure it’s not dripping wet. Add mild detergent if needed and blot gently—you don’t want to crease or damage the fabric.
You can iron Roman shades if necessary, but keep the iron on a low-medium setting. Do not iron fabrics that are 100% silk, 100% linen/cotton blend, or 100% cotton.
Use a dry cloth or a dusting mitten to quickly wipe off all the dust off from each slat. Remember to fully lower the shade and close the slats so you can reach all the dust!
Shutters are among the easiest window treatments to clean. A patented coating protects the shutters, so they typically only need to be dusted and wiped down.
Tilt the louvers while cleaning so you can wipe the shutters down in the open and closed positions. You should be able to do most of this cleaning with a feather duster, a dry cloth, or the brush attachment of a vacuum. If you find that there’s a more persistent issue, you can use a cloth dampened with a little water and non-abrasive dish soap.
Like many of our shades, all you’ll need to do is dust with a dry, soft cloth or a feather duster. If using a vacuum, you should only use a setting for blowing off dust. Do not use any “Suction” Setting.
Sheer shades are 100% polyester and are not waterproof, so spot cleaning as a method is not recommended. If you must, do so carefully with a soft cloth moistened with lukewarm water.
DualDrape™ has separate fabric vanes that make cleaning the shade easy. You can dust or spot clean, following the usual procedures, but you can also take each vane down to put in a washing machine or to iron, making it practical to keep your DualDrape™ beautiful.
If you’re putting the shade’s vanes in the laundry, you must follow a few rules:
If the woven bands on top of the fabric vanes raise slightly during washing, you can reposition them by ironing on the Nylon setting – the temperature should be around 200 to 220 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cleaning your vertical blinds is easy! Vanes can come down and be swapped out with the snap-in brackets. The PVC vanes are made of moisture-resistant material, so it’s easy to dust and to wipe down the blinds down with a damp cloth. You should only need water, but for any difficult spots you can use a mild detergent or soap – do not use any harsh chemicals.
