How to keep your window treatments looking clean and new!
Jul 17th, 2014 by framecreations

Ever wonder how to keep your window treatments clean and looking new? We have the perfect tips to help you out!

It doesn’t take much to keep up with your window treatments, in fact, to keep your window decor looking beautiful, it is as simple as periodically dusting with a feather duster or vacuuming them with an upholstery attachment. In the case of a small stain or spot, easily just wipe the window treatment clean with warm water and a mild dish soap. 

As there are many different types of window treatments available, each have their own tailored cleaning procedure for best results. According to one of our top leading brands Graber, the best instructions for each type of window treatment is as follows:


Clean WT

Vertical Blinds—Vinyl Louvers:

  • Vinyl louvers may be removed and immersed in water for cleaning.  To eliminate static electricity, coat the louvers with a thin layer of mild detergent.

Vertical Blinds—Fabric Louvers:

  • These should not be immersed in water or dry cleaned.

Vertical Blinds Sheer:

  • Sheer fabrics are steam pressed during the manufacturing process, but may need to be re-steamed at a low temperature before hanging.
  • Be careful not to iron out the permanent pleats. Also make sure to remove the fabric from the louvers before steaming.
  • Sheer fabrics are machine washable. Use the gentle cycle with warm water and a mild detergent. (For best results, avoid chlorine bleach.) Hang damp fabric on the louvers and re-shape them. To dry, keep the louvers in the open position.

Wood Blinds:

  • For blinds with painted and stained finishes, clean with spray polish and a soft cloth. For best results, do not use water on any wood products.

Cellular Shades:

  • Strong detergents or spot removers may harm your cellular shades. Dry cleaning is also not recommended.
  • When deep cleaning is desired, you may wish to enlist a professional cleaning service

Shutters:

  • For minor dirt and stains, clean with warm water on a damp cloth. Wipe dry.
  • If more thorough cleaning is necessary, use a mild detergent diluted in water to a 5% solution and apply with a cotton cloth. Rinse area with plain water to remove any detergent residue and dry with a cloth.

Designing a room
Sep 13th, 2012 by framecreations

Did you know that when designing a room, the very first design option you should choose is for your windows? Not only is it the most practical thing to do (privacy and insulation are very important!), but your windows are the focal point of a room. They are the first thing that a person notices upon entering a room. The fabric that you choose to dress your windows should inspire all other aspects of design in the room, including paint colors, and carpeting. Allow the textures, colors, and patterns of fabric to direct your personal style for any room in your house. At FRAME Creations, our designers are color certified window treatment specialists, and are happy to help with all design needs. We serve all of Fairfield County and New Haven County. Stop in to one of our design centers located in Trumbull or Shelton, and schedule an appointment for a free in-home consultation today!
