Our Curtain Cleaning Processes
We carefully inspect the state of the curtains and blinds that we are asked to clean and decide the best action plan for the nature and state of the fibers, any severe or surface staining we may notice, household or pet odors that have been deeply embedded into the fibers, and so on. As a result of our discoveries, our technicians will either recommend the quick on-site solvent injection solution or the in-facility dry or wet curtain cleaning methods.
On-Site Curtain and Blinds Cleaning Method
Our cleaners will initiate this procedure by first dry cleaning and vacuuming any traces of loose, dry, and solid debris or pet hair on the surfaces. Next, they will use dedicated tools to treat any heavy staining and soils and proceed to thoroughly clean the curtains using the best method recommended at the end of the pre-testing phase. To do this, they can inject a dedicated curtain solvent with a special formula using high pressure, let the solvent act for a few minutes, then remove it along with all the dirt it has attracted. The procedure is a risk-free and shrinkage-free one that can be completed on the spot, on-site. More often than not, it does not require the curtains to be taken down and hung up again, which are additional time-consuming steps.
In-Facility Curtain Cleaning Solutions
Provided the state of the curtains and blinds requires a more advanced cleaning approach, we can provide you with in-facility dry or wet cleaning solutions. Some models of blinds for example might need to be cleaned with the help of an ultrasonic bath, while different curtain fabrics may require more delicate cleaning and drying alternatives. We will work closely with you to establish the safest, most suitable, and most efficient cleaning solutions while considering the size, fabrics, access, and attachment methods of the curtains and blinds.
How Do I Know It Is Time to Clean Draperies and Blinds?
As a good maintenance practice for your blinds and curtains, we recommend having them deep cleaned by a professional curtain cleaning company at least once every year and a half to two years, depending on a number of factors. While you may not be able to observe any actual grime or bacteria on your curtains with the naked eye, it does not mean the harmful and microscopic elements are not there, getting inhaled on a daily basis by all household members and employees.
This is why it is important to maintain a strict cleaning schedule for all window treatments, including drapery cleaning treatments.
