While we will do several "hands on" sessions on advanced blind cleaning techniques, this is NOT a “hands on” cleaning course for beginners. Our purpose will be to provide two value packed days of content and collaboration between experienced blind cleaners.
We invite you to enjoy our FREE Blindcleaners.biz Newsletter which is distributed twice a month (once a month in July/December). Just use the sign-up link on the left column to begin receiving this resource. The Newsletter is written for professionals already in this niche market or those exploring it or in a related field (retail blind sales, installation or repairs etc.) who would like to learn more about cleaning. Members have access to all past issues after login along with other resources. Free subscribers need to print or download the current copy if they wish to save it for their own future personal use.
This website is a resource portal for professionally minded blind cleaners who enjoy connecting with and learning from each other. The support of Members of the Blind Cleaner's Network fund Blindcleaners.biz and sponsor its activities for those in this niche of the cleaning industry. Our activities seek to promote the knowledge and use of proper cleaning techniques and care for custom window treatments with both consumers and fabricators. With fabricators we work to develop safe cleaning protocols. For consumers we provide assistance in finding reputable blind cleaners and answering questions about cleaning. Vendors whose products or services are relevent to what we do also network with us.
These resources are all possible through the synergy and efficiency found in working together toward goals that are neither practical nor possible as individual businesses. If you are a "professionally minded" individual or company in the industry, we invite you to join our growing network. We sponsor private forums, webinars, the Blindcleaners.biz Newsletter and website resources to support the success of others in this profession.
There is a distinct difference between general cleaning companies who advertise that they do "blind cleaning" and professionally minded blind cleaners for whom our network exists. The professionally minded blind cleaners really CARE about the BEST methods and procedures for deep cleaning many different types of custom window treatments, not just dusting or washing some types of mini blinds. Blindcleaners.biz is a resource site for business owners who take pride in their work and wish to protect their reputation. We don't believe that just because one watched a few video clips or dabbled with their machine and a few blinds from friends that they are now a competent professional. "Experienced" perhaps, but ill prepared to be trusted with expensive custom window treatments that will provide years of enjoyement with regular cleaning.
On this public level of the site one can find introductory information, a few helpful charts and articles. Our Network Members (after log-in) enjoy access to extended menus, a professional forum and other resources on the secure side of the site.
Consumers looking for blind cleaning information can use the banner ad at the top of this page to be matched with a local blind cleaner or visit Blindcleaners.net for information about blinds, their care and cleaning.
Ultrasonic blind cleaning has been around for decades, though many people either don't understand how it is done or would like to learn more about it. For those interested in a quick overview of the basics, we'll take a brief look at this method for cleaning blinds and shades.
