What is the best way to clean and maintain my window coverings?

The best way to clean and maintain window coverings is to do weekly or bi-weekly dusting and cleaning. Dusting is an excellent way to clean window treatments. A feather duster is a great way to remove dust that has gathered on window coverings. Also, using a soft cloth with furniture polish applied to the cloth can be used. Gently go over the window covering with the soft cloth to remove all dust, dirt, and debris. If you do this regularly, then the window coverings will stay clean and maintained. 

There is no major maintenance that needs to be done for the window coverings; they have a very low maintenance. The window coverings just need to be cleaned regularly, so they stay looking good and operating properly. Artisan Shutter offers low maintenance window coverings.

What is the insulation quality of interior window shutters?

Interior window shutters provide energy savings because of the insulation that is provided by the window shutters. They will prevent cool air from escaping when a homeowner has their air conditioning on. They keep the sun from shining into the home, adding heat, which causes the air conditioning to continuously run, raising your energy bill.

They are great for the winter months, because they add an extra layer when used with curtains. The interior window shutters can also be opened to allow the sun to shine in to add warmth into a room, and can be closed to block cold air from entering the home, and letting the heat escape through the windows. The interior window shutters increases the insulation by reducing heat loss.
