How can my Hunter Douglas Silhouette® shades be cleaned?”The Silhouette shade fabric has been treated with a proprietary process that optimally repels dust, soil and stains. Still these elegant shades will collect dust, insects and other contaminants.For everyday cleaning of your Silhouette shades you can:Lightly dust your shades. A feather duster works great.For a deeper cleaning try gently vacuuming your Silhouette shades with a vertical low friction motion.To clean in between the vanes, you can use compressed air or try a hair dryer with no heat on to blow dust away.If spot cleaning is needed, use a soft cloth or sponge moistened with lukewarm water. If necessary, add mild detergent and gently blot the fabric. Never rub and avoid creasing the shade’s fabric. If you do spot-clean your shade, that area may appear cleaner than the rest of the shade and may also set stains making it far more difficult for a professional cleaner to remove the stain..Injection/extraction cleaning system: This method of cleaning injects a cleaning solution into the fabric and immediately extracts the dirty solution. This service is most successfully done in the home so there is no need to remove the shade from the window.Regular cleaning of Hunter Douglas Silhouettes® by a competent professional will extend the life and enjoyment of these fine window treatments. An amazing amount of dirt can be removed from even "white" Silhouettes® that "don't look like they need cleaning".Proper handling and professional cleaning techniques are important in protecting the investment you've made in these shades.Contact Cleaner Image Solutions with any questions or request a no-charge inspection and cleaning quote.
