Blindcleaners.biz is a resource site for business owners who take pride in their work and want to stay current in their craft. We don't believe that just because one has watched a few video clips, dunked a few blinds in a machine for friends or posted a sign that they are now competent professionals. Lots of people have little machines capable of doing injection-extration cleaning for fabrics or furnitue - but that certainly doesn't mean they know the proper techniques or best cleaning chemistry to use in safely cleanning fabric shades or draperies. "Experience" isn't always an accurate teacher either. As a group we care about building professionalism and providing support to those in this niche cleaning field as well as consumers seeking to connect with them.
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.
We don't like seeing or hearing about the afermath of a blind cleaning job that went awry, ruining blinds or shades. Typically problems are a resulted or either hiring a company that didn't know enough about the custom blinds they were asked to clean, failed to do an adequate pre-inspection beforehand or didn't know the appropriate cleaning protocols for a particular item or situation. For example, this shade (one of five) was ruined by a "professional" that used the wrong cleaning process on a room darkening Hunter Douglas Silhouette. If you want to locate (or be) a knowledgeable local blind cleaner in your community, please let us know!
