Cleaning Window Treatments
When it comes to cleaning window treatments, many people tend to put it on the back burner, often because they’re afraid to make a mistake and ruin the treatment. But don’t worry—some treatments are easy to take care of yourself; of course, there are some that should only be treated by professionals. For example, regular light dusting is perfect to maintain a like-new appearance for most blinds and shades. Most aluminum and faux wood blinds can be immersed in lukewarm water with gentle detergent. Use your fingers to gently move the liquid over the slats. Close the blind to rinse and tilt the blind to allow excess water to drain off. Be sure not to submerge the headrail because the lifting mechanisms housed in the headrail are not designed for moisture.
For Deeper Cleaning
If regular dusting won’t do the trick, gently vacuum the fabric with a clean brush attachment. Or use compressed air to clean out cellular shades. 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. Be sure not to rub or scrub the fabric because that could crease or damage it.
For delicate and fine fabrics, be sure to work with the professionals. Find them on the internet, reach out to a Lynne Greene Interiors representative, or call Hunter Douglas at 1-888-501-8364 for referrals.
