Care & Maintenance / Window Coverings / Wood, Aluminum & Vertical Blinds

 

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE RECOMMENDATIONS

Dusting with a feather duster or a soft, clean cloth is usually all that is needed to keep your blinds looking new. Blinds may also be cleaned using a low suction, hand-held vacuum with a brush attachment. Stained wood blinds should be treated periodically with lemon oil or other wood preservative to protect their finish. Do not damp clean wood blinds; painted or stained, the water could damage their surface appearance. Ultrasonic cleaning is also not recommended for wood blinds. Do not wash or dry clean fabric blinds.
Avoid exposing wood and fabric blinds to window or glass cleaners, as they will cause damage. When cleaning windows, spray cleaner on a cloth instead of directly onto the window.

 

REQUIRED MAINTENANCE

As needed

 

Most shades and blinds can be spot cleaned with a soft cloth or sponge moistened, not saturated, with lukewarm water. A mild detergent can be used if needed in most blinds except wood blind (remember wood’s worst enemy is water).

Weekly

 

Regular dusting with a dry soft, clean cloth or feather duster will help maintain the like-new appearance of most blinds, shutters, shades, shadings and sheers.

At all times

 

Shades and sheers should always be installed in well-ventilated areas where they can quickly dry if they become damp from excessive moisture or humidity. Wood shutters and blinds should be immediately wiped down with a dry, soft cloth if they become damp.
IMPORTANT: Do not use magnetic cleaners, such as a dusting mitt, on any room-darkening fabric. It will damage the backing of the fabric. Do not use ammonia cleaners on or near any fabric.
