Are you in love with your new roman shades? Make sure you keep your investment looking fresh with regular maintenance. And don't let the word "maintenance" scare you - with these easy steps your window coverings will last a long time.
Every week, use the brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner to suck up any dust or hair that's attached to the shades. This will help improve the air quality of your home and prevent your shades from becoming excessively dirty.
If you ever encounter a stain on your roman shades, it's best to spot treat the area immediately. Laundry stain removers work well, but only use them if you know the fabric can handle it. If worst comes to worst and you think your shades could use a complete washing, washable fabrics can be placed in the washing machine. Just be sure to detach the pulls and accessories first.
If your roman shades are made from materials like bamboo or non-washable fabrics, you may need to hand-wash them or take them to a professional dry cleaner.
