Care and Cleaning

Wood and Faux wood

Keep your real and faux wood blinds looking their best by periodically wiping them with a soft cloth, a dusting mitt, or the round brush attachment from a vacuum cleaner.

Tips: You can clean the blinds hanging in place or take them down. By tilting the slats down, but not quite closed, you’ll be able to clean most of the top surface of each slat.

For Stain-Finished Hardwood Blinds

Treat periodically with lemon oil or other wood preservatives to protect finish. Do not damp-clean blinds with a stained finish because water could affect their gloss and appearance.

For Painted Wood and Faux Wood Blinds

Painted Wood and Faux Wood blinds can be cleaned with a soft, damp cloth.

NOTE: The warranty for your blinds does not cover damage or discoloration caused by improper cleaning.

Aluminum Blinds

To keep your blinds looking their best, wipe them periodically with a soft dust cloth or dusting mitt, or vacuum them using a round brush attachment.

Tips: Blinds can be cleaned in place or taken down for cleaning. By tilting the slats down to the almost closed position, you can clean most of the top surface of each slat. Tilting the slats up allows you to clean the bottom surface of each slat.

For hard-to-remove dust and dirt

In a very dusty environment, you may need to clean your blinds using a sponge or dampened soft cloth.

Place a towel on the floor or windowsill to catch any water that drips from the blinds. Use warm water and a mild nonabrasive detergent.

Never use hot water, solvents, or harsh or abrasive cleansers to clean the blinds.

Rinse the blinds with clean water to prevent water spots.

NOTE: The warranty for your blinds does not cover damage or discoloration caused by improper cleaning

Vertical Blinds

Your vertical blinds should not require frequent cleaning because the vanes hang vertically. However, condensation, dust, smoke and humidity can cause iscoloration over time. Occasional cleaning will help maintain the beauty of your blinds for years to come.

Fabric Vanes

Vacuum occasionally to remove dust and keep the fabric fresh. Remove spots or stains with a mild soap and water solution, blotting gently with a sponge or cloth. Always test a small, inconspicuous spot first to check for color fastness.

Vinyl Vanes

Using a soft cloth or sponge, wipe with a mild soap and water solution. Do NOT use abrasive or harsh cleansers; they can damage the surface finish. Dry with a cloth towel to prevent water spots.

General cleaning guidelines

Always clean one vane at a time. Detach one vane, place it on a flat surface, clean as described above, and then reattach the vane. HINT: Carefully slide a credit card or similar flat object under the clip to help disengage it from the vane.

  • Never soak the vanes; they may be permanently damaged.
  • Never use hot water, solvents, or harsh or abrasive cleansers to clean the vanes.
  • Never machine-wash or dry-clean vanes.
  • Never wring, fold, press, or machine-dry vanes.

When storing vanes

To prevent damage and loss of shape, always store vinyl vanes flat, away from extreme temperatures and direct sunlight.

Roller and Zebra shades

Fabrics are specially treated to repel dust and dirt.

 

Dusting

Regular dusting maintains a like-new appearance

Vacuuming

For deeper cleaning, vacuum gently with the furniture brush attachment from any vacuum cleaner

Spot-Cleaning

Spot-clean shades with soft cloth or sponge moistened with lukewarm water blot gently and dry shade in fully lowered position; add mild detergent if needed

Woven Shades

Keep your woven-wood shades looking their best by periodically vacuuming them with a brush attachment.

Tips: You can clean the shades hanging in place or take them down.

For the optional sheer privacy liner:

  • Do not remove the liner for cleaning.
  • Spot-clean the polyester-cotton blend liner as you would upholstery.
  • Vacuum periodically to dust.
  • The liner may bunch when the shade is raised; lower the blind to remove wrinkles and raise slowly to keep the liner neat.
  • Press the liner into the fold when raising long shades

Cellular Shades

Like any piece of fine furniture, your shade should be dusted regularly.

Use a brush-type vacuum attachment or feather duster for dusting; stroke lightly over the shade.

  • To clean with water, use a damp sponge and lightly dab.
  • Avoid contact with window cleaning products.
  • Do not immerse shade in water.

Roman Shades

Roman Shades are made of the highest quality material for extended wear. If it is not damaged or exposed to a great deal of direct sunlight, it is not unrealistic to expect years of enjoyment with minimal care. Raising and lowering shades periodically helps to reduce most natural dust accumulation. If additional cleaning is desired, shades can be lightly brushed or carefully cleaned with a soft vacuum brush attachment.

Sheer Shades

Condensation, dust, smoke and humidity can cause discoloration over time. Occasional cleaning will help maintain the beauty of your sheers for years to come.

Regular cleaning

For many sheers, periodic dusting will be the only cleaning needed to keep the sheers looking clean and new.

Stain removal

If the sheer becomes soiled or stained, spot cleaning may be necessary. Gently dab the stain with lukewarm water, and add a mild detergent if needed. Careful blotting of the fabric should prevent creasing or wrinkling. Always test for colorfastness on an inconspicuous area before using any detergent.

Heavier cleaning

You may use the soft brush attachment of a vacuum cleaner to remove excess dust accumulation, if needed.

Removing vanes

To remove the vanes from the headrail, carefully slide a credit card or similar flat object under the clip to help
