Should You Dry Clean Your Bed Linens?

bed linen cleaning service

Bed linens may vary in quality, but few are inexpensive. Whether yours have been fashioned from the highest thread counts and the silkiest of natural fibers, or are percale or even straight-up polyester, bed linens are a necessity and need to be taken care of properly. In addition to sheets, there are comforters, quilts, and duvets as blanket covers which also need to be routinely cleaned. Now comes the great debate — should you dry clean your bed linens or just toss them in the wash? In this posting, Cameo by Copeland Cleaners, with well over 80 years of service to New Yorkers, will detail why our bed linen cleaning service is your optimal choice.

How often have you had to purchase new bed linens? Those items, which vary in size due to the different bed sizes, have gone up in price exponentially over the past decade. Most households own more than one set of bed linens per bed as, for reasons of sanitation, no one should be sleeping on a mattress that is not covered in a fitted sheet at the very least. Whether or not a top sheet is used it is included in every set which, except for twin beds, comes with two pillowcases as well as two sheets. By the way, even if you do not use the top sheet, it should be laundered with the rest of the set. This way it will ‘age’ along with the other set components should you decide at some future date to use all of the set. As for bed covers, do not think that you are serving them well by spraying them with an antimicrobial spray that features a fresh scent purchased at the grocery. No, Cameo by Copeland Cleaners’ bed linen cleaning service is far and away the best option to maintain your bed linens as well as your health.

Everything in your home environment from cooking odors to pet fur to hair and skin cells works its way into the fibers of your bed linens. Therefore, it is important to routinely have your bed linens dry cleaned. Also, many New York apartments, even those with a washer and dryer in their unit, are too small to accommodate most bed linen sets, thereby necessitating a better way to keep these items, in daily use, cleaned and maintained. It is simple — call Cameo by Copeland Cleaners and arrange for our van to pick up and deliver your freshly cleaned bedding — comforters and all! Just let us know if you want yours to be boxed or hung and, as part of our bed linen cleaning service, we will return them looking as fresh and crisp as the day you purchased them.

Admit it, sinking into a bed that is set with the softest and freshest of linens is a luxury, no matter what your linens are made of. There is just nothing else like the look, feel, and scent of linens that have been carefully cleaned and pressed. Think of our bed linen cleaning services as another form of self-care.
