That’s where we come in!

How to Clean Your Window Coverings


As with most things in your home, window coverings can collect dust, so it’s important to clean them regularly. If you go with a lighter color, they can also get stains or spots. In order to keep your window treatments in the best condition possible to ensure they last for years to come, we recommend the following cleaning techniques:

  • Dust: Regularly dust your shades or blinds to avoid build up.
  • Vacuum: In times when a deep cleaning is necessary, vacuum your coverings with a brush attachment.
  • Hair Dryer: Blow dust off of blinds or shades.
  • Spot-Cleaning: If your window treatment has a stain, use a soft cloth or sponge that is wet with lukewarm water. Be sure to blot and not rub to avoid damage.
  • Thin Film of Detergent: For vinyl vertical blinds, use a thin film of detergent to avoid static electricity build-up.
  • Bathtub Cleaning: For most honeycomb shades and faux wood blinds, immerse the shade in lukewarm water and detergent in the bathtub. Then rinse with clean water.
