You’ve invested in window treatments to be beautiful and functional for your home. And one of the best ways to ensure that they can fulfill those roles is to keep them clean. See below for some general tips on how to clean different types of window treatments; you’ll note that some treatments are OK to clean yourself, but others require professional cleaning.

Regular light dusting is perfect to maintain a like-new appearance for most blinds. If you need to get a deeper clean, most aluminum and faux wood blinds can be submerged in lukewarm water in your bathtub. Use a gentle detergent if you need to, and gently move the water over the slats with your fingers. Tilt or close the slats to let the excess water drain off, and then be sure to re-install your blind while it’s damp, keep it fully lowered so it can dry completely. Be sure not to submerge the headrail of your window treatment because the lifting mechanisms housed in the headrail are not designed for moisture.
For shades, you can gently vacuum the fabric with a clean brush attachment. Use compressed air to clean out cellular shades. And if you have a stain, you can spot-clean most shades using a soft cloth moistened with lukewarm water and a mild detergent if you need to. Be sure not to rub the fabric because rubbing could crease or damage it.
Professional Blinds and Shade Cleaning
Professional window treatment cleaners should take care of your delicate and fine fabrics. They might use ultrasonic cleaning or injection/extraction cleaning. They’ll let you know if they can come to your home, which would save you the trouble of taking down your window treatment.
