Durability & Maintenance of Honeycomb Cellular Shades

Ensure the Life of Your Shades with Proper Care

Honeycomb cellular shades provide exceptional energy efficiency and elegance, but they do require special care. With a wide range of light filtering options and cell sizes and numbers, it's important to recognize that the durability and maintenance of one type of cellular shade may differ slightly from that of another. Keep in mind that you'll need to follow manufacturer instructions and recommendations when cleaning and maintaining your shades to keep them looking great for years.

In general, though, these shades are relatively durable and resist dust and stains. Although resistance and durability will differ depending on fabrics, models, and manufacturers, most of these shades can be easily cleaned with a spray fabric or upholstery cleaner like Woolite or Scotchguard.

Cleaning Tips

  • Keep shades open during and after cleaning to properly air out the fabric and keep moisture from getting trapped in the pleats.
  • Lightly spray the soiled area with the appropriate cleaner and gently wipe the fabric with a damp cloth or sponge. Always wipe horizontally along the pleats so as not to damage the fabric or folds.
  • Take care not to crush or wrinkle the fabric.
  • Pat with a dry cloth or towel to remove excess moisture but leave the blind fully extended to allow air to circulate between the pleats and through the honeycomb cells.
  • Be aware that excess cleaning, as with any window treatment, may result in loosening the pleats and structure of these shades.

Most of the time minor dust stains on your cellular shades can be easily removed with a dry cloth. Always wipe your shades clean with horizontal strokes parallel to the pleats. In general, these shades are remarkably dust and stain resistant and require little maintenance. Be sure to follow manufacturer instructions when cleaning to stay within the terms of any warranties.
