Keep your new blinds and shades in excellent condition by following a few basic cleaning instructions. This will not only help maintain their longevity but can also be beneficial to your overall health. Everything from dust and pet hair to sun damage can accumulate on your shades and blinds over time. It’s recommended to clean them anywhere from twice a year thoroughly to every other week while cleaning the rest of your home. In this post we’ll be breaking down the different methods to cleaning your blinds and shades based on their individual material and structure.
Do you have a vacuum with a brush attachment? Make use of it each time you vacuum and clean your home by gliding it lightly the direction of the slats or honeycombs. Make sure to clean both sides, the hanging apparatus and any cords. This method works great with several of our shades at Beyond Shades, including: Pirouette® Window Shadings, SILHOUETTE® Window Shadings, DUETTE® Honeycomb Shades, VIGNETTE® Modern Roman Shades, SONNETTE™ Cellular Roller Shades, PROVENANCE® Woven Wood Shades, Designer Roller Shades, and more. Be sure to be gentle and not pull on or damage your window coverings, you can turn your vacuum’s power to a lower setting to decrease the possibility of causing any damage.
