People prize cellular shades, also known as honeycomb shades, for their energy efficiency, excellent light control, light filtering and superior insulation. However, maintaining the pristine condition of your cellular shades is crucial for extending their life and effectiveness. In this article, we’ll walk you through the best practices for cleaning cellular shades, ensuring they continue to enhance the beauty and comfort of your home.

Why Clean Cellular Shades?

Over time, dust, pollen, and other airborne particles can accumulate on your shades, detracting from their appearance and potentially aggravating allergies. Regular cleaning keeps them looking as good as new and functioning optimally.

Tools and Materials Needed

  • Vacuum with a soft brush attachment
  • Mild detergent
  • Lukewarm water
  • Microfiber cloth or sponge
  • Hairdryer (optional)

Step-by-Step Guide to Cleaning Cellular Shades

  1. Dust Regularly: Use the soft brush attachment on your vacuum to gently remove dust and debris. Vacuum across the shades horizontally, and be sure to address both sides.
  2. Spot Clean Stains: Mix a small amount of mild detergent with lukewarm water. Dip a microfiber cloth or sponge into the solution and wring it out well. Gently blot any stains or spots without rubbing the fabric, which can damage the delicate structure.
  3. Deep Clean for Tough Grime: If your shades are heavily soiled, they may require a more thorough cleaning. You can lightly sponge the entire surface with the same mixture of mild detergent and water. Be careful not to saturate the fabric.
  4. Dry Properly: Avoid wrinkling or shrinking the shades by letting them dry in a fully extended position. If needed, a hairdryer on the cool setting can speed up the drying process.
  5. Professional Cleaning: For a deep clean or if the shades are extremely delicate, consider professional cleaning services. Made in the Shade NorCal provides professional cleaning services that guarantee careful handling of your shades.

Maintaining Your Cellular Shades

To keep your cellular shades looking their best, regular maintenance is key. Dusting every few weeks and spot cleaning when necessary will help maintain the integrity and appearance of your window treatments.
