When choosing a window treatment, it’s important to consider how much time and effort you’re able to put into cleaning and maintenance.
Shutters or blinds with wide slats are usually low-maintenance. They can be easily cleaned with a microfiber cloth or duster. Most cloth shades can be cleaned with the dust brush attachment on household vacuum cleaners.
Wooden shutters or blinds can be cleaned like wooden furniture with a duster or lightly dampened cloth.
Shades made from materials such as bamboo, natural fibers or woven wood need special care. They should be cleaned with microfiber dusters or light vacuuming. A large amount of water can damage natural materials, so it’s important that if they require heavy duty cleaning, only a very lightly dampened cloth or sponge is used.
