KEEPING YOUR GRABER WINDOW TREATMENTS LOOKING CLEAN AND NEW

With minimal care, your blinds, shades, shutters, and draperies will add classic elegance to any room in your home for many years to come. To keep them looking beautiful, most window treatments should be periodically dusted with a feather duster or vacuumed with an upholstery attachment.

Small stains on blinds and shades can be easily wiped clean with a sponge soaked in warm water and mild detergent. Gently blot the material to dry.

For tips on cleaning specific Graber products, please see below.

Vertical Blinds—Vinyl Louvers

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

Vertical Blinds—Fabric Louvers

These should not be immersed in water or dry cleaned.

 

Vertical Blinds Sheer

Sheer fabrics are steam pressed during the manufacturing process, but may need to be re-steamed at a low temperature before hanging.

Be careful not to iron out the permanent pleats. Also make sure to remove the fabric from the louvers before steaming.

Sheer fabrics are machine washable. Use the gentle cycle with warm water and a mild detergent. (For best results, avoid chlorine bleach.) Hang damp fabric on the louvers and re-shape them. To dry, keep the louvers in the open position.

Wood Blinds

For blinds with painted and stained finishes, clean with spray polish and a soft cloth. For best results, do not use water on any wood products.

Pleated Shades

Before cleaning, be sure to remove the shade from its window. Open the shade fully and lay the fabric on a flat surface.

To remove fingerprints or spots, use a spray foam upholstery or fabric cleaner. Spray the cleaner on the entire area and gently rub back and forth with a clean, damp sponge. Be careful not to crush or wrinkle the fabric.

Dry the fabric by patting with a clean towel. Hang the shade up once again when it is completely dry.

Do not use strong detergents or spot removers. Dry cleaning and ultrasonic cleaning methods are also not recommended.

Finally, be aware that frequent cleaning may affect the fullness and body of pleated fabric.

Cellular Shades

Strong detergents or spot removers may harm your cellular shades. Dry cleaning is also not recommended.

When deep cleaning is desired, you may wish to enlist a professional cleaning service. To locate a certified blind cleaner in your area, visit blindcleaners.netor contact the Graber customer service department at 1-800-221-6352.

Shutters

For minor dirt and stains, clean with warm water on a damp cloth. Wipe dry.

If more thorough cleaning is necessary, use a mild detergent diluted in water to a 5% solution and apply with a cotton cloth. Rinse area with plain water to remove any detergent residue and dry with a cloth.

Occasional light vacuuming with a brush attachment should keep shutters clean.
