post E-mail post Post  

Window blinds, adjustable window coverings composed of slats, are made from a variety of materials including fabric, wood, plastic and metal. Blinds tend to gather dust, which can harden from exposure to the sun, and regular cleaning is necessary.

Typical costs:

  • Professional cleaners typically charge based on size and material composition of the window blinds. Expect to pay $10-$50 total to clean blinds that measure less than 9 feet in width. For example, Dirty Blinds in Columbus, OH, part of a national chain, charges $6 per foot for mini-blinds and $12 per foot for wood blinds, or $48-$84 for 8' blinds. See Clearly Window Cleaning[1] , which serves the Portland, OR, metro area and Vancouver, WA, charges $15, on average, per set of blinds. Residential and commercial professional cleaning costs are comparable.
  • Kits and products are available for do-it-yourself blind cleaning. Amazon[2] sells a variety of wands, gloves and micro-fiber dusters for cleaning blinds that cost $2-$50. For example, a soft brush[3] specially made for cleaning mini-blinds costs $2-$7, and a handheld steam cleaner[4] costs about $34.

What should be included:
  • Professional cleaning services should offer a free estimate for work. Many professional cleaners use ultrasonic vibration baths to clean the blinds. The process involves removing the blinds, cleaning, drying and rehanging the blinds.
Additional costs:
  • A professional cleaning service may charge an additional fee for on-site cleaning. Typically, on-site visit fees are $50-$75 per visit. Most blinds cleaning jobs are done on site.
Discounts:
  • HGTV provides do-it-yourself tips[5] for cleaning various types of blinds including fabric, wood, metal and vinyl.
  • Dirty Blinds, part of a national chain, sends monthly coupons[6] via e-mail.
Shopping for cleaning window blinds:
  • The International Janitorial Cleaning Services Association business directory can help customers find a certified, professional cleaning service.
  • The Institute for Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration, which certifies cleaning businesses, offers tips for selecting the right cleaning professional as well as an international directory of certified professional cleaning businesses.
