Maintaining Your Window Coverings

As industry experts, we at Pro Blinds & Shades know how important it is to maintain top performance and protect your residential investment. Keeping your blinds and shades clean will extend the life of your coverings. Regular maintenance and cleaning can also keep your family healthy. Read on for some handy tips about how to you to keep your shades and blinds in good condition.

Shutters & Blinds

Use a clean, dry feather duster, cloth, or vacuum with a brush attachment to gently remove dust and debris. To ensure thorough cleaning, wipe the louvers or slats in the open and closed positions. Do not immerse the product in water or use abrasive chemical solvents. This may cause discoloration and the wood to warp. Ultrasonic cleaning is not recommended.

Honeycomb Shades

Use a clean, dry feather duster, vacuum with a brush attachment, or compressed air/hair dryer at a cool setting to remove dust and debris. For spot cleaning, use a soft cloth or sponge moistened with lukewarm water. Add mild detergent if needed. Blot gently to avoid creasing the shade. Dry in the lowered position. For significant residue buildup, professional ultrasonic cleaning may be used.
