How To Clean Your Roman Blinds

August 12th, 2014 in All About Blinds

Ever a popular choice for your home, our Roman blinds are one of the best selling ranges that we have to offer – bright colours, rich fabrics, quirky patterns and fabulous textures, we really do have an excellent selection to choose from.

But what happens when your blind starts looking like it could do with a little TLC? What’s the best way to clean it up so it looks like new again? No need to panic, we have the answers for you right here!

Removing Marks From Your Roman Blind

If there’s a small mark on the fabric, you can wipe it clean using a damp cloth. To ensure that the material is damaged, always use a mix of warm, soapy water – include a gentle detergent if you prefer – and make sure you wring out the cloth between strokes to make sure that it won’t leave watermarks. Your blind can then hang at the window to dry.

Dusting Your Roman Blind

If there’s just a build up of fluff and dust affecting the fabric, you can use an upholstery attachment on your hoover to gently dust it down. Just make sure you don’t press too hard on the fabric to avoid damaging it!

Dry Cleaning

We always recommend that our Roman blinds are dry cleaned as this will guarantee their safe return regardless of what material they are made of. The fabric itself is connected to the headrail using a velcro strip so it can be easily removed for cleaning- all you’ll need to do is untie the strings at the back of the blind and feed them out of the loops, leaving them to hang freely while the blind is cleaned and then thread them back through again once you go to reattach the fabric.
