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 they moved the  shop to a building on Theodore St. in Joliet and sold the fledgling operation to Bert and Miriam Bolton who continued to grow operations. In 2016 we moved to a larger facility in Crest Hill allowing us to better serve the thousands of people from across the Chicago region and NW Indiana whom we have been priveleged to serve. 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: Gerlinde is our wonderful office manager who keeps everyone on track and office details and work schedules organized. We operate by appointment, so she is busy arranging schedules and keeping up with paperwork etc. (Bert's wife Miriam still provides background support, although she is teaching math part-time during this school year.)

Cass (Cassandra) handles a wide range of cleaning roles ranging from medical to residential/commercial cleaning work. You're likely to meet this nice lady anywhere from helping Bert on a job in your home to answering quesitons behind the counter in the shop, if she's not out working with one of our clients.


Mick works part time doing blind repairs and provides some of the magic that extends the life of client's blinds at our shop or sometimes dropping by your home. His meticulous attention to detail is appreciated by our customers.

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 (16 years+), IICRC Certified Journeyman 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.

Disclaimer: Our real world experience and knowledge of custom blinds and draperies allows us to provide personalized quality cleaning services. The pictures you see on our website are not "stock" photos or "staged" illustration shots but actual projects we've done. You also won't find huge ads for our business online or see us bragging about big numbers of blinds cleaned or repaired etc. though we do a LOT of them. We stay busy caring for our repeat and referred clientele and the new folks we enjoy helping along the way.
