Spot Cleaning

Gather a soft cloth or sponge, mild detergent, and warm water. Blot gently and allow to dry completely, taking care not to crush or wrinkle delicate fabric.

Special Cleaning Instructions

Cellular and Pleated Shades

Dusting and vacuuming are recommended for monthly maintenance.

  • Spot clean with mild soap.
  • For deep stains or soil, contact a cleaner from the certified network of ultrasonic cleaners.

For assistance in locating a certified blind cleaner that serves your area, visit or contact Customer Service.

Sheer and Layered Shades

Dust regularly with a feather duster, vacuum with low suction or blow away dust with a hair dryer on a cool setting. Static may occur in dry conditions. If the front and back panels appear to cling together, an anti-static product (such as Static Guard®*) may be used to eliminate the static buildup.

*Static Guard® is a registered trademark of B&G Foods North America, Inc. Ultrasonic cleaning is also an acceptable cleaning method. Professional blind cleaners use a variety of methods to clean blinds and vary in their capabilities. While Springs Window Fashions knows that many of our window treatments can be safely cleaned using the appropriate ultrasonic or injection/extraction cleaning methods, we cannot guarantee the outcome of any cleaning services provided by an independent company

Wood Blinds

For painted and stained finishes, dust with a soft cloth. Never use water on wooden blinds.

Vertical Blinds

Vinyl vanes may be removed and immersed in water for cleaning. To eliminate static electricity, coat the vanes with a thin layer of mild detergent.

Fabric vanes should not be immersed in water or dry cleaned.
