Curtain & Blind Cleaning
We all know what a chore it is to have to get your curtains and blinds cleaned. Usually it’s a job we all put off until it can’t be put off any longer, and then it means taking the curtains or blinds down and taking a trip to the launderette.
Expert Curtain & Blind Cleaning in London
It’s hardly any wonder that by the time we finally get around to dealing with the problem, the fabric is in desperate need of some professional curtain cleaning.
If you’re someone who has a number of sets of curtains and/or Roman blinds that need to be cleaned on a reasonably regular basis, then we might be the answer to your problems.
Our specialist curtain cleaning uses safe cleaning solutions and systems that are completely safe for your drapery and kind to the environment, ensuring you get perfect results and curtains and blinds that look as good as new every time.
Kinds of curtain cleaning we can do
Broadly speaking, the curtains and blinds we are able to clean fall into two groups:
Synthetic or Mixed Fibre
These materials tend to be highly durable and are able to cope easily with professional machine cleaning methods. If your curtains are in this category, then we would most likely use a professional cleaning system known as hot water extraction, which uses high temperatures to get the best results.
The advantage of being able to use a hot water extraction system is that our curtain cleaners will be able to use highly versatile equipment that can deliver a superior clean whilst your curtain or blind fabrics are in place – so there is no need to remove them from their fittings.
Natural or Delicate Fibres
As the name suggests, these fabrics are more sensitive and using hot water extraction would risk damaging them.
For these, and non-durable curtain and blind fabrics, we offer a non-moisture-based solution. This would typically involve a dry powder or solvent-based approach to cleaning.
Our cleaning methods explained
Although many people often mistake hot water extraction for steam cleaning, the two methods are in fact very different – and hot water extraction is a much more effective and less abrasive way of achieving a really deep, professional clean.
Hot Water Extraction
Using specialist equipment, we will apply a loosening mixture of hot water and, where possible, an eco-friendly detergent to the fabric which will free ingrained dust and grime from the material.
At the same time, the special tools attached to the machine will vacuum the area, immediately removing the loose dirt and dust and also extracting any other unwanted debris.
Dry Curtain Cleaning
Once the cleaning agent has been applied to the fabric, a rotating nozzle on our specialist equipment loosens the accumulated dirt and dust and deodorises the material.
Once this step is complete, the curtain or blind fabric is thoroughly vacuumed to ensure all unsanitary substances are removed, leaving your fabrics looking and smelling like new.
Frequently Asked Questions
One of the biggest challenges of giving your curtains or fabric blinds a really deep and thorough clean is that very few of them are designed to go in the washing machine – which makes cleaning them properly quite tricky. When you use a professional cleaning company to clean your curtains and blinds it’s a different matter because if they’re a reputable company they’ll have specialist equipment to get the job done – and may not even need to take them down to do it. Professional cleaning leaves curtains and blinds looking like new, adding a fresh look to your home.
Over the course of a year your curtains and blinds accumulate a lot of natural dirt and dust particles, so it makes sense to have them professionally cleaned at least once every year to remove as much of that build up as possible. In between, use the upholstery or fabric attachment on your vacuum cleaner to keep the worst of the dust under control.
For durable materials we would most likely recommend a method known as hot water extraction which uses a mix of hot water and a safe cleaning solution to lift and loosen ingrained dirt. We then use a powerful vacuum to remove all the debris from the fabric fibres. Natural or delicate fabrics are more sensitive and for these we offer a non-moisture-based solution which utilises a gentle dry powder or solvent-based approach.
Having specialist professional cleaners to take care of your curtains and blinds ensures your window coverings will be completely dust and dirt free. In turn, that means your curtains and blinds will not only look better for longer, but also enjoy a longer life, saving you the cost of replacing them earlier than is necessary.
