Blind  The training offered through our network is unique. We are driven by a desire to help other blind cleaners professionally and to raise the bar in this industry. Those teaching the class make their living cleaning blinds and draperies and operating a local blind cleaning business. Our focus is on supporting the success of professionally minded bind cleaners, NOT product sales.

   Some companies that sell blind cleaning equipment offer "training" for customers. The quality and depth of such training (and after the sale support) varies and is usually not as comprehensive or ongoing as the sales pitch implies. Rarely is the training done by an active blind cleaner, with over fifteen years of full time experience. We teach the priciples and practices that will make you successful with whatever equipment you have purchased. They make their money on the sale of equipment and chemicals and often "promise the world" until your check is cashed. When you need timely support after the class are you left calling an answering machine? {Currently, retailers who offer ultrasonic blind cleaning training are noted on the chart of Equipment Suppliers.}


     The offices and training facilites of the Blind Cleaner's Network share the building of a Chicagoland blind cleaning shop. Students move from the conference/training room into the shop simply by walking into another space in the building. We provide the opportunity for hands on cleaning as well as thorough lectures (Presentation notes are provided so you can pay attention to what matters most to you. Questions are always welcome.). You can see how our shop is run and learn from others to put together what will work best for your particular situation and business model. We'll gladly put in you contact with other network members whose experience or business models may be in line with what you would like to do or are doing.

   The information provided on this site (95% of which is secure behind the Member's login) will aid you in make informed business decisions. Don't be pressured into a sale or believe that you have to act "today" for a special price. Reputable companies will answer your questions, provide references and even ask you questions to insure that the intended purchase is a good fit for your situation. If you have questions, do some more research. Investing in the basic training class or a Membership could save you thousands of dollars and untold heartache. As you apply what is learned is applied to making key decisions regarding your equipment, business model, marketing or the services offered in your business you'll avoid some common pitfalls novices in this busines make.

    Disclaimer: We list companies on this site for your convenienced and reference as you do your due diligence in checking out various equipment. We DO NOT endorse or recommend specific companies. Some have a poor reputation in our industry, others have established a good reputation among other blind cleaners (We get feedback in annual surveys and from blind cleaners across the continent, who tell us their stories).

   Blind cleaning represents a business opportunity that exists in several variations.  It can be a  great niche in which to operate - if executed properly in a market which is large enough to support the size of the desired enterprise, whether as a source of full or part time revenue.  Most professional blind cleaners use at least one of the two most common cleaning methods, either ultrasonic or injection/extraction.  Each method inherently has advantages and disadvantages, so companies which offer both can provide a wider range of services to their customers.  
   While some companies who sell blind cleaning equipment offer fairly complete business packages, others only provide the equipment.  If you want to go "ala carte" then you can put together a training and equipment package that fits your budget and needs.  If you are looking for used equipment, don't forget to check out our Abby's Attic page for current listings.
