Roman Shade FAQs

How do you clean Roman shades?

Hunter Douglas Roman shades are specially designed to require minimal care and cleaning. This could include:

  • Dusting: regular light dusting will help maintain your shades, however, do not use magnetic cleaners such as a dusting mitt on light-dimming fabrics as it may damage the light-dimming backing.
  • Vacuuming: Vacuum your shades gently using the brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner.
  • Blowing: You can also use a can of compressed air or a hair dryer set to no-heat to blow off dust.
Vignette Roman Shades

What are the benefits of Roman Shades?

Roman shades make a great alternative to curtains. They are easier to clean and allow you different style options such as classic folds, flat folds, room-darkening or light-filtering, and top-down/bottom-up opening and closings.

What is the difference between room-darkening and blackout?

Semi-opaque and opaque fabrics will darken a room but not entirely eliminate light. Blackout window treatments block out as much natural light as possible, however, nothing can completely eliminate incoming light as there are almost always slight light gaps.

“Let me start by saying, I love my window treatments! Mr. Graham was very professional, easy to talk to; he talked with me, not above me, I was at complete ease. He listened to my thoughts, went through my options, and just like that – decision made. The installation crew was quite professional, friendly and efficient. They were in and out in no time, with cleaning up after themselves, and ensuring that I was satisfied with what was done. I would highly recommend Graham’s and Son Interiors to anyone, and I look forward to working with them again!”
