broken blindsIt’s that time of year! The time for Spring cleaning! The decluttering of your home, the deep cleaning of all the nooks and crannies.

Cleaning! Maintaining the Forgotten Blinds, Curtains and Tracks of the Home

Curtains and Blinds are great for keeping the heat out of your home. Thankfully, as well as being extremely useful, they are also easily kept in working order by staying up to date with cleaning and maintenance.


Blinds are extremely easy to clean. You can wipe off any dust by using just a clean cloth!

While you are cleaning them, check the tracks, fittings, and cords.

Do your blinds need repairing, here at Rian’s Window Treatments we offer repairs on:

• Restringing of blinds
• Vertical blind sat clips
• Continuous cord loops or chain for vertical blinds
• Cloth tape for wood blinds or venetians.

Plus, we have lots of spare parts. If you’re unsure of the type of blind you have, or the repair it needs – take a photo and email it to us!


Cleaning your curtains doesn’t have to be hard! With different types of fabrics, comes different ways to clean and care for them.

For cotton curtains, the washing machine in your home is perfectly fine to use! Ensure you remove each fitting and hook. Wash on a delicate cycle in cold water and hang outside (if possible) to dry in the natural sun.

For more delicate curtains – like lace, soaking in a tub of cold water and dishwashing detergent is the way to go.

curtain that needs fixingIf you have heavier curtains throughout your home, then it’s best to take these ones to a dry cleaner. That way they can be sure to get a good proper clean.

If your curtain has any rips, tears or snags, or has any missing or damaged hooks, then a repair is what you may need. We can repair your curtains to restore their function and beauty.


Tracks are usually the most common part of a window to be neglected. If yours are looking a bit worse for wear, don’t worry – you’re not the only one!

If a clean is all they need, a great way to do it is to first grab a vacuum cleaner with a window track attachment (if you have one) – if not, a toothbrush and warm water is a great way to get into all the crevices.

If you need a repair, on a cracked or broken window track, call us at Rian’s Window Treatments for all your blind, curtain and track repairs plus spare parts too.

Our service areas are South of Perth including Rockingham, Baldivis, Safety Bay, Mandurah, Pinjarra and surrounding areas right through to Bunbury.
