How to Clean and Care for Vertical Blinds

Panel Track Blinds — Prince, Metal

Vertical Blinds are a beautiful, modern drapery alternative. They’re great for covering wide areas and meticulously designed to be great room dividers. Vertical Blinds definitely look elegant, but how do you clean them?

Here are a few simple steps on how to clean Vertical Blinds from our experts at The Shade Store.

Vacuum, Dust, Spot Clean

Washing Vertical Blinds at home is easy. In fact, you can do it yourself in three steps: Vacuum, Dust, Spot Clean.

1. Vacuum

Your household vacuum cleaner is perfect for removing everyday dust and dirt that can accumulate on Vertical Blinds. We recommend attaching an upholstery wand and vacuuming from top to bottom so you don’t accidentally remove the blinds from their tracks.

2. Dust

The next step to cleaning Vertical Blinds at home is dusting, and it’s even easier than the first step! Simply use a feather duster — or even a soft paint brush — to gently get any excess dust off your blinds.

3. Spot Clean

The last step to cleaning Vertical Blinds at home is spot cleaning. To remove stubborn spots, our Design Consultants recommend using a solution of warm water and dish soap. Gently wipe each spot with a soft sponge in a circular motion and let air dry. If you’re having trouble, don’t hesitate to reach out to your local showroom — our Design Consultants would be happy to recommend a local cleaner.

Good luck and happy cleaning!
