When is the Right Time to Clean Your Drapes?

drapery dry cleaning

In addition to weekly vacuuming, most of us deep clean our homes once or twice a year. We will wash the windows inside and out, steam clean our carpets and area rugs, steam clean our wood and tile floors, and completely overlook our window coverings. The result can be window coverings that ‘age’ before their time and require replacement prematurely. As with most household chores, however, there is an optimal time for every task. The right time for you to arrange for drapery dry cleaning will depend on a number of factors. In this posting, Cameo by Copeland Cleaners will advise how to know when “it’s time” as well as the best way to have your drapery dry cleaning performed.

Depending on the size of your residence, your draperies can represent a sizable home furnishings investment. That is why it is so important to routinely clean your drapes so that they retain both their shape and color. Also, if you’ve just performed a seasonal deep house clean and yet are still noticing dust flying through the air, or are affected by allergies, look at your drapes. Their fabric, whether made from natural fibers or synthetic materials, are magnets for dust, pet dander, cooking odors, and even dirt and grime. Getting out your vacuum and trying to clean your fabric window coverings using this technique, however, is at best, a stop-gap measure. And, if the suction level is high, your vacuum can damage the woven material as well.

But before you get up on a ladder and take your drapes off their rod for a quick trip to the washing machine, think again. It is safe to assume that regardless of the materials used to construct your drapes that drapery dry cleaning is your best and only option. Again, unless you really want to, you do not have to take down your draperies to have fresh and clean window coverings. Instead, give Cameo by Copeland Cleaners a call. Yes, the leading dry cleaners that you already depend on to keep your investment wardrobes in optimal condition, also make house calls!  Upon request, our team of cleaning professionals can come to your premises and clean your window coverings in place.

So when is the right time to arrange your drapery dry cleaning services from Cameo by Copeland Cleaners? Ideally, every quarter if you have pets and if there is a smoker in your household. If you use a wood burning fireplace during the Winter months you’ll want to arrange for your window coverings to be cleaned before the warmer weather arrives.
