Recommended Cleaning Methods
Dusting: Regular light dusting maintains a like-new appearance for most blinds, shades, sheers, shutters and fabric panels.
Vacuuming: For deeper cleaning, vacuum gently with a hand vacuum cleaner. Most products may be vacuumed using a vertical stroke; however, do not use a brush attachment with Privacy Sheers, Solar Shades and Silhouettes shades.
Compressed air: or hair dryer COOL SETTING ONLY Using a low pressure setting, you can blow dust off all window coverings.
Spot-cleaning: Spot-clean shades and blinds with a soft cloth or sponge moistened with lukewarm water. Add mild detergent if needed. Blot gently to avoid creasing or damaging to the fabric. Rubbing can damage fabrics. Spot-cleaning may result in cleaner areas.
Certain honeycomb: and rollers fabrics should not be spot- cleaned. Use cool, distilled water when spot cleaning silhouette window shadings, Solar Shades and or Sheer verticals.
Aluminum /2” blinds: Use an over-the-counter blinds cleaner with a soft cloth.
Vinyl and aluminum vertical blinds: Reduce build-up of static electricity by applying a very thin film of detergent on all vanes.
Bathtub cleaning: Water immersion for Aluminum Blinds only. This method is used for aluminum blinds
Important! Honeycomb, Solar Shades, Silhouettes Shades, fabric-covered head-rails, fabric-covered valances or fabric-covered returns, should not be immersed in water.
