Yes. After exposure to dust, cooking, tobacco smoke residues, and other pollutants, your drapes will need to be professionally and thoroughly cleaned. Dry cleaning is recommended for draperies and sheers though some people prefer to have sheers laundered rather than dry cleaned.

In either case, call us or set an appointment to take down, press, dry clean or launder, and professionally reinstall your draperies, sheers, and valances. Most draperies should be professionally cleaned after 2-3 years. Of course environmental circumstances and other factors affect the recommended cleaning interval.

Take your blinds outside and rest them on a carpet, towel or blanket. Use a soft brush and a bucket of water with a few drops of dish detergent and gently scrub from side to side. Make sure to wash both sides of your blinds. When done, rinse gently with a garden hose and hang to dry.

Vertical blinds are best cleaned when hanging. The easiest way to keep your vertical blinds clean is to vacuum them with a brush attachment during your regular cleaning routine. For fabric and vinyl blinds, you can use a dry sponge to remove any spots that the vacuum was unable to remove.

Roller shades and vertical blinds don’t have a surface for dust, so are great low-maintenance options. Cellular shades are also a great options as many are anti-static and won’t attract dust.
