How do I clean my Hunter Douglas window fashions?

According to the Hunter Douglas® website, We design our window fashions to require minimal care and cleaning that may include regular dusting and periodic vacuuming. We create products that are dust, soil and stain resistant.

    • Dusting Guidelines – Regular light dusting maintains a like-new appearance of most blinds, shades, sheers, shutters and window panels.
      CAUTION: Do not use magnetic cleaners such as a dusting mitt on light-dimming fabrics. This will damage the light-dimming backing.

    • Vacuuming Guidelines – Vacuum gently using the brush attachment on any vacuum cleaner. Most products may be vacuumed using a vertical stroke.
      CAUTION: Do not use a brush attachment or long vertical strokes to vacuum Alustra Luminette, and Luminette Privacy Sheers, as these actions will crease the fabric. Do not vacuum Architella Elan and Architella Elan Eclipse fabrics.

    • Compressed air or hair dryer (non-heat setting) – Use to blow dust off selected window coverings.

What are the advantages of adding blinds to my windows instead of curtains?

Blinds offer control over how much lighting you allow into your space. In addition, blinds can allow light into your home while maintaining your privacy.

Is there any economical value to owning blinds and shades that can help me save money?

It is amazing what window treatments can do to improve your home’s insulation and significantly cut down on your energy costs. Up to 25% of your home’s heating or cooling cost can be attributed to loss of energy through your windows.

What are the differences between vertical and horizontal blinds?

Vertical blinds offer easy access. These blinds often filter more light, especially when made of silk or light linen. Horizontal blinds emit less light when open and are less vulnerable to wear.

What are the differences between using wood blinds and faux wood blinds?

Wood blinds offer a warm and more inviting look with an earthy vibe. Faux wood is more durable and moisture resistant than real wood great in areas with high humidity.

What is a valance?

A valance is a decorative treatment for dressing the top of a window. Valances add height, color, and elegance to your window. They are a great decorative touch to kitchens, living rooms, and bedrooms. We offer valances that can be customized to match your homes décor.
