Louvers Lane Building Picture Winter 2020 smConvenient Location: Our shop is located in Crest Hill at 1950 Leness Lane. We are behind Rental Max just off Route 30 west of Larkin (next to Toton's TV). We also service a wide area making service calls to homes and businesses.

Map of 1950 Leness Lane, Illinois, areaLocal Family Owned: In 2001 our business was founded in a Shorewood storefront by the wife of a Joliet policeman. In 2003 the shop moved to a building on Theodore St. in Joliet with expanded cleaning capabilities as Bert and Miriam Bolton bought the business and continued to expand operations. In 2016 we to a larger facility in Crest Hill and have now serviced over 10,000 clients from across the Chicago region and NW Indiana. Whatever the project size, we strive to provide a personalized professional cleaning - whether you have one blind or a thousand. Our goal is to deliver consistent, quality service for each and every project, not just cranking out production. A typical month's clients are likely to include senior citizens with a simple blind repair, schools or corporations with hundreds of blinds or thousands of square feet of drapery to clean. Referrals from clients, decorators and other professionals keep us active.

Specialists: Nationally Recognized Expertise in Blind and Drapery Cleaning:  Not only does our team have years of experience in what they do, we also believe ongoing professional development, education and training are important.  For this reason our team posses a blend of certifications related to the services we offer. Several times a year we have blind cleaners from across the US and Canada (and as far away as Australia) in our facilities for several days of intense training. The reason we interact regularly and consult with blind cleaners and fabricators from around the world is due to the fact that our staff also supports professionally a global network of like minded blind cleaners - Why not put this locally available expertise to work on your project?

Office Staff: Miriam is most likely going to be the friendly female voice you get on the phone. She keeps things organized in the office. As we operate by appointment and everyone's  work schedule varies, please leave a message if someone doesn't personally answer your call. Often someone is here all day, however we may be on another line or helping another client or busy in the shop. We will get back to you just as soon as we can.

cleaningstationJon Bolton rejoined our team in the Spring of 2019 after working in the wind industry for the past 5-6 years. Now he's back to repairing blinds and helping in other aspects of the business with his parents. He's an IICRC Certified Upholstery and Carpet Cleaning Technician and lends his varied skills in support of the services we provide.  If Jon can't figure out how to fix it, it's time for a new one!

Mikaela Neefe is often working her cleaning magic in the shop or on various jobsites. Her attention to detail, solid work ethic and years of experience in the cleaning industry have made her an integral part of what we do.

Bert  While his height lends itself to efficient take downs and re-hangs (and much longer cleaning strokes on draperies) his involvement goes beyond the cleaning side of the local operation. As the administrator of a national network of professional blind cleaners, if can't help you, he likely knows someone that can - from Chicago to British Columbia or even Australia! His professional credentials include being a Hunter Douglas Certified Professional Installer, Certified Fabricare Specialist (15 years+), IICRC Certified for Upholstery/Fabric and Carpet Cleaning Technician. In his "spare time" he writes articles and develops materials for consumers and professionals regarding various aspects of the blind cleaning industry. Developing new products like LockDown Shades is a favorite "hobby". He currently holds three patents for specialty shades used in schools, businesses and government buildings across the US and Canada in Lock Down situations.

For larger jobs, we supliment our core team from a pool of our own part-time workers who we can call upon as needed.

Our real world experience and knowledge of custom blinds and draperies allows us to provide personalized quality cleaning services.  The pictures seen on our website are not "stock" photos or "staged" illustration shots but actual projects we've done.
