Do you entertain often? Have pets, children or grandchildren? Or do you have areas in your home that have a lot of traffic, such as a sliding glass door leading out to a lanai? Washable window treatments may be the ideal answer for your home’s window décor.
When window treatments are washable, or can be washed in the washing machine, their durability is much higher than those that are not machine washable. Specific rooms may also determine whether or not you want a machine washable window treatment. For example, you may want a washable treatment for your kitchen window(s) due to the possibility of splatter from foods or liquids while cooking. Or you may want a machine washable window treatment in a bathroom, children’s bedroom, or laundry room, or any room for that matter where the window treatment will be operated often.
Why would someone want machine washable window treatments? There are many answers, ranging from cleaning convenience to allergy control. When draperies and sheers are able to be machine washed, they do not have to be dry cleaned, saving time and money. Allergens, pet hair, and dust particles are greatly reduced when the window treatment can be washed, perfect for an allergen sensitive household.
So which window treatments are machine washable? Here at Ocala Interiors, we offer various machine washable window treatments. Depending on the fabric selected, a number of the sheer and drapery styles that we offer can be thrown right into the washing machine on gentle cycle. Certain fabric vertical blinds can also be taken down from their tracks and washed. Other washable window treatments include the Ado wrap and the Illumasheer, both treatments allow for the sheer to be removed from the operable blind and washed in the washing machine. These window treatments resemble a vertical blind, but have a more elegant look with sheer wrapped around each slat. The Ado Glide is another washable treatment where there are multiple panels of fabric, which are removable and can be thrown directly into the washing machine.
If these specific washable window treatments are not your preference, we also offer window treatments that are fairly easy to clean and dust. Such window treatments include solar shades and shutters. Solar shades are easily taken down from the window and brought outside to be hosed down. Our shutters here at Ocala Interiors can be wiped down with a damp cloth or dusted and are completely waterproof due to their protective coating.
