  1. Cleaning Methods

    1. DUSTING Regular light dusting maintains a like-new appearance for most blinds, shades, shadings, sheers, shutters and window panels.
    2. VACUUMING For deeper cleaning, vacuum gently with a brush attachment of any vacuum cleaner. Most products may be vacuumed using a vertical stroke; however, do not use a brush attachment with Luminette® Privacy Sheers or Vignette® Modern Roman Shades Leela™ fabric.
    3. COMPRESSED AIR OR HAIR DRYER (cool setting) Use to blow dust off selected window coverings.
    4. SPOT-CLEANING Spot-clean shades with a soft cloth or sponge moistened with lukewarm water. Add mild detergent if needed. Blot gently to avoid creasing or damaging the fabric. Rubbing can damage fabrics.
      1. Notes • Alustra® Pirouette® and Pirouette Window Shadings, Alustra Silhouette® and Silhouette Window Shadings, Sonnette® Cellular Roller Shades, and certain honeycomb fabrics should not be spot cleaned.
      2. Important! Refer to the charts in the Care & Cleaning section of the documentation provided to you at the time of installation for products not recommended for spot-cleaning.
      3. Use cool, distilled water when spot cleaning fabric-covered headrails on Nantucket™ Window Shadings, Alustra Silhouette and Silhouette Window Shadings, Alustra Vignette and Vignette Modern Roman Shades.
      4. Aluminum blinds. Use an over-the-counter blind cleaner with a soft cloth.
      5. Vinyl and aluminum vertical blinds. Reduce buildup of static electricity by applying a very thin film of detergent on all vanes.
    5. ULTRASONIC CLEANING Professional ultrasonic cleaning is recommended for several products (refer to the charts in the Care & Cleaning section of the documentation provided to you at the time of installation).
    6. INJECTION/EXTRACTION CLEANING SYSTEM This type of cleaning injects a cleaning solution into the fabric and immediately extracts the dirty solution. It is a very effective way to deep clean your window treatments. The service is typically performed in the home so there is no need to remove the window treatments. Products that can use this method include most soft, fabric-based Hunter Douglas products.
      1. Important! Refer to the charts in the Care & Cleaning section of the documentation provided to you at the time of installation for products not recommended for injection/extraction cleaning.
      2. Important! Do not use this method to clean fabric-covered headrails, fabric-covered middle rails, fabric-covered bottom rails, fabric-covered valances, or fabric-covered returns.
      3. To locate businesses that utilize this method, check the yellow pages or call Hunter Douglas at 1-888-501-8364 for referrals. Hunter Douglas acknowledges these cleaning methods as being safe and effective. However, we cannot attest to the quality of equipment or services provided by any independent cleaning facility.
    7. STEAMING Steam can be used to remove wrinkles from some fabrics. A handheld travel-size steamer that provides continuous steam is best. Do not hold steamer head in direct contact with the fabric. A distance of 6″ to 8″ from the fabric folds is recommended. Heavy-duty steamers are not recommended. Contact Hunter Douglas Customer Support for product specifics.
      1. Notes: Additional information on steaming and dressing Vignette Modern Roman Shades and Alustra Vignette Shades can be found in the Vignette product section.
      2. Important! Refer to the charts in the Care & Cleaning section of the documentation provided to you at the time of installation for products not recommended for steaming.
