Insulated Roman shades need minimum cleaning as they are not in a position to get particularly dirty. They tend to gather dust from outside your home if you leave your windows up, as well as the dust from inside. It is important to vacuum your insulated Roman shades to get rid of this dust as excess dust can cause allergies and is also unsightly. If do have children with sticky fingers and accidently get a stain on your shades, use a damp cloth to rub it clean. If you use a wet cloth, you could risk discoloring that area of the shade.
