However, we’ve got some tips that should make the process less painful. Read on!

How to Clean Blinds and Shades

For most blinds and shades, a regular light dusting is perfect to maintain their like-new appearance. You can also use compressed air or gently vacuum any fabric with a clean brush attachment. In fact, compressed air is also great for cellular shades. If you have a stain, don’t fret. You can spot-clean most shades and blinds using a soft cloth or sponge moistened with lukewarm water and perhaps a very mild detergent—just be sure not to rub the fabric because that could damage it.

For Heavier Window Treatment Cleanings

If you need to clean a bit more deeply, you can immerse most aluminum and faux wood blinds in a tub of lukewarm water with gentle detergent. Use your fingers to gently move the liquid over the slats, closing the blind to rinse and tilting it let the water drip off. Be sure not to get the headrail or the lift mechanism wet, because they aren’t designed for moisture. Reinstall the blind while it’s still wet, being sure to lower it completely to let it dry. If you have delicate or fine fabrics, consult with a professional window treatment cleaning service, who might recommend ultrasonic or injection/extraction cleaning. Typically, they can provide this service right in your home, so you won’t need to remove your window treatments. We also offer On-Site Fabricare cleaning.
