Do I clean my window blinds before or after window installation?

  • After. The window installation will get them dusty.

    Elaine, wash them now. When your new windows are installed and cleaned, you will be so happy to have the whole vision at once. Plus, if new windows mean any construction, the blinds will have to come down during the work. Will any dimensions change? If so, you can make the blinds shorter by removing extra slats from the bottom. If you need to make them wider, and don’t want to buy new ones, you can use a set of sheers at the sides of each window. Too wide? Trim them with good scissors or a small saw and use sandpaper. Need a new color? Paint them! Best wishes on your blinds and new windows. Take pictures and post on Hometalk! 😊

    You will have to remove the blinds during the window install. Clean them in the bathtub while the windows are being installed.
