Although many people shy from cleaning their shades or blinds because they’re afraid they’ll ruin them, it’s actually very important to do some periodic cleaning to keep them looking their very best. At Bretz Interiors serving the greater Denver area, we’ve got some great tips for our customers on how to maintain their Hunter Douglas window fashions—from do-it-yourself steps to the moments when it’s best to call a professional. Read on to learn more!
Regular Maintenance for Blinds and Shades
Regular light dusting is perfect to maintain a like-new appearance for most blinds and shades. You can use a feather duster or a regular cloth. For a deeper cleaning, you can use your vacuum’s brush attachment or compressed air to send the dust flying. 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 the fabric to avoid creasing or damaging it.
Use Your Bathtub
If you have aluminum or faux wood blinds, you can dip them in lukewarm water in your bathtub. Add mild detergent and use your fingers to gently wipe off the slats. Reinstall the blind while it’s still damp, and lower it all the way to let it dry. When you use this method of cleaning, be sure to keep the headrail out of the water because submerging it might cause the lifting mechanism to malfunction.
If your window treatment is made of delicate or fine fabrics, find a professional cleaner. To find these cleaning services in your area, you can search the internet, call Hunter Douglas at 1-888-501-8364, or reach out to Bretz Interiors for referrals.
