How to Clean Silhouette Shades

How to Clean Silhouette ShadesSilhouette shades are a beautiful window treatment for any room. Like anything that’s part of your home decor, Silhouette shades do require some maintenance.  We often have clients in the Palm Beach area ask us how to keep their Silhouette shades looking new. Luckily, Silhouette shade fabric by Hunter Douglas has been treated with a proprietary process that optimally repels dust, soil and stains. In fact, all of Hunter Douglas window treatments are designed for easy care and cleaning.

For everyday cleaning of your Silhouette window shadings you can lightly dust your shades with a feather duster. For a more robust cleaning, gently vacuum your shades with the brush attachment that comes with most vacuums. To clean in between the vanes, you can use compressed air or try a hair dryer set on cool to blow dust away. If spot cleaning is needed, use a soft cloth or sponge moistened with lukewarm water. If your shades get wrinkled, you can steam the wrinkles out. A hand-held travel-size steamer that provides continuous steam works perfect.

You can also turn to professionals to deep clean your shades. Look for vendors that use one of these cleaning methods:

  • Professional ultrasonic cleaning: This method is best for shades that are heavily soiled. Ultrasonic cleaning takes the shade and dips it into a tank of warm water and mild detergent and then sound waves are used to clean the fabric.
  • Injection/extraction cleaning system: This method of cleaning injects a cleaning solution into the fabric and immediately extracts the dirty solution. This service is usually done in the home so there is no need to remove the shade from the window.
