Quick Tip #10: Roman Blind Maintenance

Coming out of the recent reader discussions and suggestions on our article on Roman Blinds we decided that this useful comment on cleaning and maintaining your blinds should definitely be added to our Quick Tips:

10#   Extend the life of your Roman Blinds by having the fabric treated before hand with a stain repellent (like Scotchgard) and then giving it a regular vacuum to prevent dust from accumulating. Also remember, like with any mechanism, when drawing the roman shades up and down each day to do it with caution to avert unnecessary wear-and-tear on the cords.
