Blind and Curtain Cleaning
Residential & Commercial - Certified Technicians
Similar to your carpet, your blinds and curtains can serve as breeding grounds for dust, dirt, and bacteria. At NYC Steam Cleaning, our experts are determined to keep your home and business safe from possible pollutants. We use green cleaning agents and methods – as well as professional-grade equipment that promises an efficient experience.
Your curtains and blinds should be cleaned every eighteen to twenty-four months, if not more. You likely won’t notice dirt or grime on your window fixings before cleaning. Why? Because they begin gathering allergens long before you notice a visual representative. This means you should maintain the frequency of your steam cleaning appointments, even if you can’t pinpoint a visible change.
When it comes to curtain and blind cleaning, our decisions are based on the specific materials used in your home. Your curtains may need dry cleaning in lieu of steam cleaning. Maybe your blinds are particularly touchy. We individualize our services to avoid cookie-cutter cleaning. Instead, we spend time in your space and determine the best course of action with your recommendation sand thoughts in mind.
You won’t find hidden fees or “add-ons” when you work with our team of experts at NYC Steam Cleaning. We answer your questions, provide excellent service, and stick tightly to our quotes. You’ll be updated every step of the way – just as we’d expect to be updated if our home or business were steam cleaned.
At NYC Steam Cleaning, we care deeply about the health and safety of yourself, your family, your friends, and your customers. Call our team at (888)-245-1199 to schedule an appointment, learn more about our company, or ask specific questions. We look forward to hearing from and working with you soon!
The method we use for cleaning is hot water extraction, commonly referred to as steam cleaning. Our exclusive hot water extraction method removes the toughest, deepest dirt safely and gently. Hot, soft water and a specially formulated cleaning solution are injected deep within the carpet fibers. Then, a powerful suction extracts deep-down dirt, allergens, cleaning solution and 95% of the moisture. It’s the cleaning method most recommended by carpet manufacturers.
A light vacuuming in the traffic areas is recommended but not required. If needed, the crew can pre-vacuum the area to be cleaned. Also, the equipment is vacuuming the entire time we are cleaning.
Typically, an area is a room that is up to 300 square feet (that is 15 x 20 or approximately the size of a two-car garage). Living room/dining room combos are considered two areas. Any area over 300 square feet but less than 600 square feet is priced as two areas. Non-standard areas (baths, halls, landings, walk-in-closets, etc.) are priced separately from the standard areas, usually at a lesser price. Please know that these room sizes may vary by location.
On average, it will take approximately 20 minutes per room. This time can vary greatly depending on the amount of furniture to be moved, how soiled the carpet is, and any necessary spot removal treatments.
There is no charge to move furniture. Our crews are professionally trained to move your furniture, and return it to its rightful place when cleaning is completed. There are several items we recommend not moving, such as: pianos, electronics, china cabinets, waterbeds, some large beds, dressers with mirrors, etc. We do suggest you remove items off of your furniture like plants, lamps and knick knacks. If you would like, you may reach your local NYC Steam Cleaning at 1-888-245-1199. The customer service advisor will be able to answer any technical questions you might have as well as provide a cost estimate. Thank you for your inquiry and interest in NYC Steam Cleaning.

Dry time is affected by humidity, temperature and air flow to the area. It can take anywhere between 8-24 hours for the carpet to completely dry, depending on the aforementioned variables. Using fans in any rooms cleaned and turning your air conditioning or heating system on, depending on the time of year, can help accelerate drying time. Be sure to leave the protective blocks under furniture legs and any paper used with upholstered items in place until the carpet and/or furniture is completely dry to avoid any color transfer. You may walk on your carpet immediately after cleaning, but avoid wearing street shoes, as they may re-soil your carpet. We suggest wearing clean rubber soled shoes. Be especially careful when walking from damp, carpeted areas on to non-carpeted areas to avoid slipping.
The problem results from residues being left in the carpet which attract dirt. Usually this is caused by the use of soap in the cleaning process that hasn’t been rinsed out completely. Our specially formulated solution and hot water extraction cleaning process leaves little to no residue behind to attract dirt.
Although most spots that are removed from carpet do not reappear, some substances in carpet backing may wick to the surface after cleaning. If this happens, please contact NYC Steam Cleaning at 1-888-245-1199 as soon as possible.
We cannot guarantee that we will remove all spots or stains. There are substances that can permanently discolor the carpet fibers. The age of the carpet and the type of carpet fibers also plays a factor in this. The technician will try to determine if this is the case prior to cleaning but they are not always able to determine this before trying to remove the spots.
As the carpet dries, these bubbles or ripples should start to lay flat again. Once it is dry they should be virtually unnoticeable. This is usually a sign that the carpet was in need of re-stretching prior to the cleaning. If these ripples do not go away after it is completely dry, please contact NYC Steam Cleaning at 1-888-245-1199 as soon as possible.
When comparing prices, make sure you ask a lot of questions and please keep a few things in mind. Our price includes treating for spots, moving furniture, and a 10-day satisfaction policy. There are no hidden fees or additional charges. Also, we never sub-contact, so our technicians are always background checked, drug tested and properly trained NYC Steam Cleaning employees. This is what allows us to stand behind all of our work.
We are happy to work with you to correct any situation that may arise. In some cases this can mean spot cleaning specific areas of concern or even completely re-cleaning the area in question. In the end, we’re not satisfied until you are.
