Care & Cleaning

Sunway window coverings have been designed for easy maintenance. Every home and blind is different, but most Sunway products require minimal care and cleaning when used regularly.

We’ve put together the below guide to help with routine maintenance to keep your window coverings looking and performing their best.

Interior Collection

Each Sunway interior fabric comes with their own unique finish and features.

Below is a general guide for cleaning:

  • Surface dust may be removed with a gentle brush, feather duster or clean, dry cloth.Surface dust may be removed with a gentle brush, feather duster or clean, dry cloth.
  • Wiping with a dry sponge can also assist to remove any surface dust.
  • A dry art gum rubber is excellent for removing small marks.
  • For stubborn marks or stains, gently wipe fabric with a sponge soaked in lukewarm water. If marks are still visible, add a little detergent. Dry gently with a clean cloth. Test in an inconspicuous area before spot cleaning.

Some fabrics feature additional protection such as Sanitized® or Duraguard®

Duraguard® offers superior Stain Resistance with a special coating that repels both water-based and oily stains. Sunway blinds with Duraguard® will stay in pristine condition for longer.

Sanitized® Antimicrobial Protection fights odour, bacteria, and mildew for long-lasting freshness and wellbeing.

Cellular Collection

Cellular shades are made of anti-static, dust resistant fabric which repels dirt and dust. For most honeycomb fabrics, the following cleaning options are available:

Dusting: Regular light dusting with a feather duster is all that is needed in most homes

Vacuuming: Do not vacuum blockout fabrics. For deeper cleaning on translucent or sheer fabrics, you can vacuum gently with a brush attachment.

Compressed Air/Hairdryer: Using compressed air or a hairdryer on a cool setting to blow off dust or dirt.

Spot Cleaning: Do not spot clean blockout fabrics or any fabric covered valances. Spot cleaning can be done by:

  • Prepare a solution of warm water and mild detergent
  • Dampen a clean soft cloth in the solution and wring it out.
  • Dab the spot with the damp cloth until gone. Do not rub the fabric.
  • Allow the shade to fully dry in the completely lowered position.

Bathtub/Water Immersion: Do not immerse headrail or any fabric covered valance. ONLY use this method to clean fabrics ranges indicated with a dot in the Cleaning Table indicated for this cleaning type. To clean with this method:

  • Immerse the shade in a basin or bathtub filled with warm water and a mild detergent. Do not immerse the headrail.
  • Rinse with clean water.
  • Before removing from the rinse water, fully raise the shade and tilt it to allow excess water to drain off.
  • Allow the shade to fully dry in the completely lowered position.

Ultrasonic Cleaning: This method is suitable only for certain fabrics. Do not ultrasonically clean any fabric covered valances. A professional can use this method to clean provided only a mild detergent is used. Never immerse headrail and always allow the shade to fully dry in the completely lowered position.
