How to clean roman blinds

To clean your roman blinds, we suggest treating them as you would any fabric accessory in your home. This means vacuuming them regularly to prevent dust and dirt build-up or taking them to the dry cleaner if they get stained.

Vacuuming roman blinds

To vacuum your roman blinds, you can either keep them in their track and vacuum or take down and lay on a flat surface − whichever works better for you. Usually roman blinds are attached to their track with Velcro, which means it’s easy to remove them if you prefer to take them down for vacuuming.

Use the upholstery attachment on your vacuum. This will help to brush out dust and remove dirt from your fabric. When vacuuming, pay special attention to the edges and corners of the blind, because that’s where the dust tends to build up the most.

To prevent dust and dirt from gathering on your blinds, regularly dust and vacuum your windowsill. This will make keeping on top of the cleaning process easier.

Washing roman blinds

You can also soak your roman blinds in lukewarm water to refresh the fabric. However, never rub or wring the blinds as this could damage the fabric or bleach out the colour.

It may be possible to use washing liquid or detergent to clean the blinds. If you want to try this, do a patch test on a small hidden area first to ensure it doesn’t damage the colour or pattern of the fabric.
A steam cleaner is another great option for keeping your roman blind clean, especially if it’s made from heavy fabric or it has interlining.

When to go to a dry cleaner

For a deeper clean, we would always recommend taking your roman blinds to a dry cleaner. This is because of the soft cloths used in the manufacture of these blinds. They usually comprise polyester, cotton, linen, or a blend of all three, meaning that machine washing can damage to the delicate fabrics and cause the dye to bleed out.
