How To Clean Cellular Shades

Cellular shades are a durable window covering that will allow light to enter while still providing a level of energy efficiency and privacy. Cellular shades are constructed of a sturdy, durable material and maintenance isn’t difficult. With only minimal care, your cellular shades will remain crisp and attractive for years.

Things You Will Need:

  • Vacuum brush
  • Sponge
  • Duster

Clean your cellular shades regularly to remove dust and dirt. Use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment. For quick in-between cleanings, dust the shades with a clean feather duster or blow off dust with canned air. Clean each pleat thoroughly, beginning at the top and working toward the bottom.

Spot clean your cellular shades by wiping the shades with a soft sponge dipped in warm water. Dab or rub the shades carefully, as harsh rubbing may damage the material or fade the color.

Add a drop or two or mild dish soap (never use any harsh detergent or spray cleaner) to the warm water to remove stubborn stains, but test the soap solution on an inconspicuous area first. Don’t clean your cellular shades with soap if the color runs.

Deep clean cellular shades in a bathtub filled with warm water and a few drops of mild dish soap. Swish the shades slowly through the water to dislodge soil, then swish the shades gently through clear, warm water to remove the detergent. Immerse your shades only after testing the soap solution on a hidden area. Hang up the cellular shades and allow the shades to air dry.

Always use care when cleaning any window covering product. Damage, stains or discoloration to cords, chain, ladder, slats, tubes, fascia/valance, headrail, tilt rod, hardware or any part of the window covering resulting from regular maintenance, cleaning or operation will not be covered under the manufacturer’s warranty.
