Care & Cleaning Recommendations for Window Coverings

Having window treatments installed on your windows is a great way to improve the functionality and aesthetics of your home. However, they will need to be properly cared for to ensure that they retain their beauty throughout the years. At Southwest Blinds & Shutters, we offer the following recommendations for caring for different types of window treatments. However, keep in mind that these are just recommendations, and any chemicals you use on your window treatments should first be tested on an inconspicuous area to ensure no damage takes place.

Faux-Wood Shutters, Poly Shutters, & Faux-Wood Blinds

For minor dirt and stains, clean with warm water on a damp cloth and wipe dry. If a more thorough cleaning is needed, use a mild detergent diluted in water to a 5% solution and apply with a cotton cloth. Rinse the area with plain water to remove any detergent residue and dry with a cloth. You can also keep shutters clean with occasional vacuuming with a brush attachment.

Wood Shutters & Wood Blinds

Do not use water on any wood products. Light vacuuming with a brush attachment should keep shutters clean. You can also dust the shutters with a light terry cloth. For shutters or blinds with painted and stained finishes, occasionally clean with spray polish and a soft cloth.

Cellular & Pleated Shades

You can either vacuum or dust the fabric to clean it. You may also spot clean with water. However, strong detergents or spot removers are not recommended as they may harm these shades. Dry cleaning is also not recommended.

Roman Shades & Draperies

For regular maintenance, you can use the brush attachment on your vacuum and run it lightly over the treatments, including up and down the folds of draperies, to remove dust and particles. Do not use water, club soda, soaps, or other cleansers.

Roller Shades & Dual Shades

Vacuuming and dusting should be enough to keep roller and dual shades clean, although they can be spot cleaned with water.

Customer Reviews.

This is one top notch company! They provided a wonderful variety of samples when they came to my home and were able to patiently answer all my questions about their products. Very professional! I felt like they really cared about my satisfaction with my choices all the way to the final installation. The installer was on time, pleasant, very neat, and did a wonderful job. I absolutely love my new shutters and would highly recommend Southwest Blinds and Shutters to anyone in the Valley. You will not be disappointed!

The technician who measured our windows and eventually installed them did a professional job and was done very quickly. Got our rebate form promptly and would do business again if we are ever in need.

James was doing a job across the street and we asked him to come over for an estimate. We hired on the spot and were genuinely pleased with the quality and service we received. He worked fast and clean and on time. Very pleased with the outcome.
