Frequently Asked Window Blinds Questions - Answered By Blind and Shutter Depot

Q. How Do I Safely Clean My Blinds?

A. In most cases, cleaning your window blinds safely involves simply using a feather duster or a bristle vacuum attachment with the suction turned to the lowest level. With wood blinds, in particular, you want to be sure you don't use water during cleaning or expose them to moisture as this could cause damage to them. You can use a damp cloth to gently wipe away any dirt or dust that might have accumulated on faux wood or aluminum blinds.

Q. Which Window Treatments Offer The Biggest Energy Efficiency Benefits?

A. When energy efficiency is at the top of your priority list, honeycomb or cellular shades offer the highest return on investment when it comes to energy efficiency of any other window treatment out there.

Q. What's The Best Window Treatment Option? Blinds, Shades, Or Shutters?

A. There really isn't one right answer to this question. The question of which window treatment is going to be right for your home depends largely on your aesthetic tastes, personal style, and your functional needs. Our team of skilled shutter pros would be happy to work with you directly, however, to get a solid understanding of what you're looking for and help you find the perfect new window blinds, shades, or shutters for your home.

Q. What's The Benefit Of Faux Wood Blinds Over Real Wood Blinds?

A. Faux wood versus real wood really comes down to a matter of preference, although there are some differences between the two. Faux wood blinds tend to come in at a lower price point and don't absorb moisture the same way that natural wood blinds do, making them an ideal choice for bathrooms, laundry rooms, etc. If you're having trouble deciding between these two options, give our team of skilled pros a call today, and we'd be happy to help you find the right one to fit your needs.
