caring for silk on a scroll

We recently bought two of your scrolls (they are lovely by the way), and I was concerned about keeping the silk border clean. I know the most surefire way is to frame it, but I like the scroll look.
Do you have any tips on keeping it clean or cleaning it without ruining it? Maybe a steamer like you'd use with curtains. . .?
Thank you for your time.

The only thing I do to my own, is hit them with a feather duster once in a while.

Unless you are hanging them across from your greasy deep fryer, I think you'll be okay with just that for a couple of decades.

I would avoid direct sunlight, extreme humidity, pets, and kids. these are the main enemies of wall scrolls.

Cheers,
