Cleaning Your Cellular Blinds
Clients in the Midwest love the energy efficiency and look of cellular blinds but can be overwhelmed with cleaning them. We offer easy tips for cleaning cellular blinds so they stay looking new for years.
Easy Tips for Cleaning Cellular Blinds:
- Regular dusting, with a feather duster, will help maintain a like-new appearance.
- Many fabric shades are treated to repel dust and dirt but for a deep cleaning, fabrics can be lightly vacuumed with a brush attachment.
Additional Tips on Cleaning Cellular Blinds:
- A Cellular Shade can be spot-cleaned using a soft cloth or sponge with a mild detergent and lukewarm water. Blot gently to avoid creasing or damaging the fabric. Rubbing can damage fabrics. Do not use strong detergents or spot removers. Allow the shade to dry completely before raising.
- Take extra care when cleaning Cellular blackout fabric as the fabric could become permanently creased.
- Compressed air or a hair dryer (non-heat setting) can be used to blow off dust from all fabrics, providing only cool air is used. Hot or warm air can melt the sheer portion of the vanes that are covered with a mesh-like fabric.
- DO NOT use magnetic cleaners, such as a dusting mitt or Swiffers on room-darkening fabrics. This will damage the room-darkening backing.
- When cleaning your window, spray glass cleaner on a cloth rather than spraying directly on the window. This will prevent damage to the fabrics by splattering cleaner.
- Professional blind cleaners use a variety of methods to clean blinds and vary in their capabilities. For assistance in locating a certified blind cleaner that services your area, please visit www.blindcleaners.net.
- Dry cleaning is not recommended and will void the warranty.
