Drapery and curtains can be aesthetically pleasing while still trapping an overwhelming amount of harmful pollutants in the home. The accumulation of dirt and dust can be quite significant in these window accessories.
Benefits of drapery cleaning
When it comes to cleaning, window treatments are often overlooked, and drapes might be the last thing you might think needs to be cleaned.
Regularly cleaning drapes and curtains prolongs the life of the fabric and keeps colors from becoming dingy..
The net-like structure of a fabric’s weave acts like a sieve that traps small particles, mold, insects and dust. Spring and summer are the worst for bringing with them excessive amounts of dust and pollen, both of which readily cling to the window treatments in your home.
If drapes are touched often, natural oils in the skin can leave residue that builds up and attracts further dust. Without proper and regular cleaning, dusty and grimy blinds begin to look dull and discolored, detracting from the beauty of the window or door that they cover.
When Should My Drapes Be Cleaned?
A good rule-of-thumb is to clean drapes approximately every two years. A recent survey by Captain Carpet Cleaners disclosed that the average customer believes drapes should be cleaned when they look dirty. Depending on your heating system, the amount of smokers in the home, and other factors, drapes may not show soil for two to six years. The oily atmospheric soil will gradually cause the fabric to deteriorate. Often, direct sunlight is unjustly blamed for this. You may triple the life of your draperies through professional cleaning, which is relatively inexpensive compared to replacement costs.
When your draperies need cleaning, make certain they are dry cleaned ONLY. Only a small percentage of materials can be laundered. If in doubt, call Captain Carpet Cleaners for advice. Be discriminating in your choice of professional dry cleaners. Some cleaners have equipment designed for clothes cleaning, while others have equipment specifically designed for draperies.
