Like any wood furnishings, wood blinds should be dusted regularly to keep them looking new. Use a soft, clean cloth, chemically treated dust cloth or dusting mitt. Blinds may also be cleaned by vacuuming them with a brush attachment of a vacuum cleaner or by wiping with a soft, damp rag.
Our manufacturer warrants that Faux wood blinds from this collection will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for as long as original purchasor owns the products. See additional information on warranty page.
For added privacy we offer the routeless/privacy option. Slats do not have the traditional route holes. They have small knotches at the back of each slat. These knotches allow the slats to rest on the braided ladders. This elimates "sunspot" due to the traditional route holes found in slats. Slats are able to be removed easily from blind for cleaning. However because the slats only rest on top of the ladders, they tend to shift to the left and right very easily during operation of the blind. When this happens you simply realign the slats with your hands.
Another great option to customize your blinds is cloth tape. This allows you to choose a 1 1/2" wide cloth tape that will be used in conjunction with braided ladder to help support the slats. The cloth tapes come in a variety of colors to further enhance the decor of your home.
