Care of Your Blinds

ROLLER

Roller blind fabric will benefit from regular cleaning by dusting with a feather duster, carefully brushing with a soft brush, or by using a vacuum cleaner set on low suction power. Small stains may be removed as follows:
Gently wipe with a cloth which has been immersed in warm water (max. 30 degrees) with a mild liquid detergent added, and thoroughly squeezed out. Wipe several times with a cloth rinsed in clear water and squeezed out. Repeat the treatment until the stain is gone. Unroll the blind and let it dry.

DUO ROLLER

Wipe with a damp cloth.

BAMBOO

Never allow interior bamboo blinds to get wet. Although bamboo is sturdy, it is damaged easily when improperly cleaned. A lightweight feather duster will often do the trick for a quick clean.

VERTICAL

The louvres will benefit from regular dusting, careful brushing with a soft brush, or by using a vacuum cleaner set on low suction power. They can also be gently wiped with a damp cloth that has been thoroughly squeezed out.

Certain fabrics can be washed as follows:
Take the louvres off the head rail and remove the bottom weights and chains. Roll the louvres together carefully and allow them to soak in warm water (max. 30 degrees) mixed with a suitable amount of mild liquid detergent. Stir the water gently by hand to release dissolved dirt. Then rinse the louvres in clear water and then hang them up to dry, preferably on the head rail.

Take care not to fold, bend or crumple the louvres, and avoid tumble drying, spin drying, dry-cleaning and bleaching.

ALUMINIUM

We recommend that the blinds are regularly dusted, which is best achieved with a vacuum cleaner fitted with the soft brush dusting head. A feather duster can also be used.

Blinds can be cleaned with a soft brush/sponge and lukewarm soapy water. Rinse with clear water to which a small amount of dishwasher rinse aid has been added. This helps the blind to dry without watermarks. Before starting, remove the end caps from head and bottom rails, so that all moisture can drain away.

WOOD

We recommend that the blinds are regularly dusted with a feather duster or a vacuum cleaner with appropriate brush attachments. If required, the wooden valance and slats can be carefully wiped with a damp, squeezed sponge without detergent to remove any stubborn dust or marks, taking care not to get the ladder string wet.
