Below are our top three tips for keeping your custom window treatments clean and ensuring they stand up over time.

  1. Dust Regularly to Prevent Build-Up

Dust accumulation is one of the most common challenges for people who own blinds, and ignoring it can lead to a dull and unappealing look. To combat this issue, make it a habit to dust your blinds regularly. Use a feather duster, microfiber cloth, or a vacuum cleaner attachment to gently remove dust from both sides of the slats. For a more thorough clean, consider wiping the blinds with a damp cloth. This simple step not only maintains their appearance but also prevents allergens from circulating in your living or working space.

  1. Spot Clean for Stains and Spills

Accidents happen, and stains or spills on your blinds are common. To address these issues, spot cleaning promptly is the key. Prepare a mild solution of water and a gentle detergent, and dampen a clean cloth or sponge in the solution Gently blot the stained area, taking care not to rub vigorously, as this could damage the material of the blind. For tougher stains, such as grease or ink, consult the manufacturer’s guidelines or seek professional advice. Timely spot cleaning not only preserves the aesthetic appeal of your blinds but also prevents the stains from becoming permanent.

  1. Consider Professional Cleaning Services

We get it. Dusting and cleaning blinds is not your favorite chore, and it can be very time consuming to do it well. Since regular maintenance is crucial, your best option may be to invest in professional blind cleaning services periodically. Professional cleaners have the right tools to clean your blinds properly, and they have expertise in what needs to be done for every type of blind. Professionals will deep clean your blinds to remove embedded dirt and allergens. This not only enhances the appearance of your blinds but also contributes to a healthier indoor environment.
