Cleaning and Care Information:
· Roller Shade Fabrics: virtually maintenance free. If the shade is dusty, simply vacuum over it using an upholstery attachment. A feather duster can also be used to gently remove dust. Shades may also be gently wiped with a clean damp cloth. Allow the shade to dry completely before raising. Do not completely immerse.
· Solar Shade Fabrics: Virtually maintenance free. Only periodic vacuuming and an occasional cleaning using a mild detergent, soft brushing and thorough rinsing is required. Allow the shade to dry completely before raising. Do not completely immerse.
Fabric Disclaimers: To ensure color consistency and avoid dye lot variation, please order all shades for the same room at the same time. Due to the nature of the weaving process, some imperfection in the weave is normal.
Pattern Alignment: Due to the random design of some solar and roller fabric weaves, exact alignment of the pattern across shades or fabric-wrapped cornices used on multiple windows is not possible, nor is centering of patterns across the width of single shades or height of fabric-wrapped cornices.

Energy Efficiency (R-Value)*: 3.0
Sunlight Protection (UPF Rating)**: 50
*The r-value is the window’s resistance to air flow. The higher the r-value number, the more effective the window is in reducing cooling and heating costs. Cellular shades also add insulation and can increase the r-value of a window. Cellular shades trap air within the honeycomb pockets of the shade therefore, less air escapes through the glass and window frame when cellular shades are used as window treatments. Remember, the type of glass, fame and window sash can affect the r-value of the overall window.
**The Ultraviolet Protection Factor shows how well a fabric protects the solar UV rays. Levolor cellular fabrics have UPF rating to help you gauge the best solution for protecting your furnishings, floor coverings, and artwork from fading. UPF ratings range from 15 to 50, with 15-20 as good and UV blockage from 93-96%. UPF ratings of 25-35 are very good with UV blockage from 96-98%. UPF ratings of 40-50 are considered excellent and provide UV blockage from 98-99%.
Cleaning and Care: Use a brush-type vacuum attachment or feather duster for dusting. Stroke lightly over the shade. To clean with water, use a lukewarm damp sponge and lightly dab. Avoid contact with window cleaning products.
Please Note: Color lot variations may occur due to the process of color application and cellularization. For the best color match, order all shades for a room at the same time. Pattern availability and color lot match between orders cannot be assured. Any variation in color is in accordance with industry standards.
