How to Get Rid of Mildew on Cellular Shades

Installing cellular shades in your home serves a dual purpose. The shades allow natural sunlight in and extreme temperatures out. Your residence is able to maintain a constant comfortable temperature. Custom order your shades to fit any door or window. Cellular shades are composed of an adhesive that is dissolved when the wrong cleaning techniques are used. Pay close attention when removing mildew. A light touch and gentle soap must be used to avoid damaging your cellular shades.

Use mild detergent on your cellular shades to avoid dissolving the adhesive.

Step 1

Combine warm water with a small amount of mild detergent in a bucket.

Step 2

Clean mildew from the cellular shade fabric. Apply water and detergent mix using a light touch and a soft cloth. Do not allow water into the seam area of the blind. Your adhesive could dissolve and ruin your shades.

Step 3

Allow cellular blinds to air-dry.
