Caring for Your Window Treatments

Another thing that might be on your weekend list is cleaning up around your living space. You might have some basic housekeeping to do, from vacuuming to dusting to tidying. But what about cleaning your blinds and shades? Many people tend to put window treatment cleaning on the back burner because they’re afraid they might make a mistake and ruin them. But in reality, it’s pretty easy to care for many types of window treatments yourself. For example, with blinds and shades, regular light dusting is perfect to maintain a like-new appearance. Most aluminum and faux wood blinds can be lowered into lukewarm water (keeping the headrail out) mixed with gentle detergent in your bathtub. Close the blind to rinse and tilt it to let the water drain off.

For Fabric Shades

For a deeper cleaning of your fabric shades, gently vacuum the fabric with a clean brush attachment. Compressed air is a great way to clean out cellular shades. But what if you have a stain? You can spot-clean most shades and blinds using a soft cloth or sponge with lukewarm water and perhaps a very mild detergent, but you should never rub the fabric. Rubbing could crease or damage it.

Professional Help

If your treatment is made of delicate fabrics, be sure to check with a professional window treatment cleaner, who might use ultrasonic cleaning or injection/extraction cleaning.
