Several varieties of window shades and blinds are available these days. Blinds range from horizontal and vertical slats to motorized cellular shades. If you are looking for window coverings for your home, cellular window shades can be a great option. Here’s everything you need to know about cellular shades and their maintenance:
Why Cellular Window Shades?
If your objective of installing a window shade is to maintain insulation, besides ensuring privacy; cellular shades are the best option for you. Cellular window shades trap hot or cool air into their honeycomb pockets and facilitate insulation. This not only helps you keep your room warm or cool, but also helps you cut down on your electricity bills. Since these shades effectively maintain the room temperature, you do not have to crank up your thermostat frequently.
Cleaning Cellular Shades
Like all other shades and blinds, cellular window shades may also collect dust and dirt over some time. You can easily clean your cellular shades by following these methods:
Removing Dead Bugs
Bugs may crawl into the honeycomb compartments of your cellular window shade, get stuck and die. If you find dead bugs in your shade, you can easily remove them with a can of compressed air. You can also use a blow dryer on cool air mode to remove the dead bugs.
Removing Dirt and Dust
Over the years, you will notice that your shade is becoming grey. This is because of dust accumulation. Dust can easily be removed with the help of a vacuum cleaner. Vacuum clean the dust from your shades using the hose brush. Run the brush, horizontally, tracing the pleats of the shade. You can also use a lint roller to remove stubborn dust particles.
Refrain from washing your shades to remove stains. Immersing your shades in water can cause them to lose their shape. The best way to remove stains from your cellular window shades to blot it out. Dip a piece of cloth in soap water and blot till the stain is gone. Blot dry this spot with another clean and dry piece of cloth.
Maintaining a cellular shade is not a difficult task. Make sure they are dusted at least every week to remove dust, dirt and stains from them.
Cellular window shades are made of fabric and hence keeping them clean and free of stains is extremely important. The advantage of choosing these shades is that they are available in a large variety of sizes, colours and fabric choices.
