Caring for your new look

Your new blinds, curtains and shutters need just a little caring for to keep them looking as good as they did on the day they were fitted. Below, you’ll find cleaning tips for the whole Hillarys range, as well as details for ordering replacement parts.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blind louvres may be vacuumed using the upholstery attachment. For more intensive cleaning, selected fabrics can be cleaned by hand or in the washing machine. Explore our vertical range here. For full cleaning instructions, please contact our customer services team. 0808 239 7438

Roman blinds

Vacuum using the upholstery tool. Fabrics may be dry-cleaned, apart from blackout blinds, following the recommendations on the label.

Remove the blind from the headrail, paying attention to how the cords are threaded, and take out the rods and bottom bar. The fabric can now be dry cleaned with care.

Pleated blinds

Clean using a clean, dry duster. Be careful not to damage the pleats by pressing too hard. Use a hairdryer to blow debris off the back of roof blinds and then vacuum.

All curtains can be dry-cleaned.  Due to the nature of some fabrics, a small amount of shrinkage, up to approximately 5% can be expected. To keep dry cleaning to a minimum, we would recommend they are cleaned regularly with the upholstery attachment of a vacuum cleaner. Hems and side seams should never be pressed as this will distort the curtains.

Regularly cleaning will ensure your shutters continue to look great year in, year out. It shouldn't take too long and we promise it will not be hard work. It is important you follow our advice and use the appropriate method of cleaning to protect your shutters and for the best effect.

Only clean with a dry or slightly damp, lint-free cloth.
