Clean curtains are important if you want your room to look and feel clean. Over time your curtains will become stained and dirty and they will look tired. We can restore your curtains to their former glory by using specialist curtain cleaning techniques and spot treatments to gently clean your curtains, remove dust, stains and leave your curtains looking as good as new.
Curtains are very effective air-filters, easily trapping airborne dust, odours, hairs, smoke and dead skin particles and creating the perfect habitat for dust mites. Unless regularly cleaned by professionals, this could lead to allergic reactions and issues for asthma sufferers.
What you can expect from our curtain cleaning service
There is no need to remove or even take down your curtains – we can clean them carefully and thoroughly in-situ – even interlined and thermal curtains.
This helps us to deliver an affordable service with minimal fuss. We only use the safest techniques, as we understand how easily curtains can be damaged. We use recommended cleaning equipment and cleaning methods that can restore your curtains leaving them smelling fresh and clean.
Our curtain cleaning specialists can even carry out steam cleaning without taking your curtains down, making the process a lot easier for you.
The curtain cleaning process
The first step of the curtain cleaning process is to pre-vacuum your curtains and brush your curtain linings. This removes all cobwebs, insects, insect frass, loose dirt and dust from your curtains. We work deep into the curtains crevices, folds and creases ensuring we remove all loose dust and fluff.
Once we have finished vacuuming we then inspect your curtains for stains and take the appropriate action. Stains are first tested, then pre-treated with a spot cleaner. We allow a few minutes for the spot cleaner to take effect and clean the problem areas once more.
Cleaning solution application
We apply a cleaning solution to your curtains using a high pressure mister. Applying the curtain cleaning solution with a mister ensures that the cleaning solution is equally applied to the curtain fabric and helps to avoid over-wetting. We draw both of your curtains and apply the mist of cleaning solution for approximately 5 minutes.
Now the cleaning solution has been applied to your curtains, we use an upholstery mitt dipped lightly in opposite polarity hot solution. We ensure the mitt is thoroughly rung out before we begin wiping down your curtains from top to bottom. The cleaning motion and hot solution attracts all soiling onto the mitt which leavers your curtains visibly clean.
Once the mitten cleaning is complete, your curtains are cleaned with our powerful extraction machines to remove any excess moisture that has been absorbed whilst cleaning.
Deodorise and sanitise
To complete the job we deodorise and sanitise your curtains. We apply a deodoriser and sanitiser to your curtains which helps to kill any remaining bacteria and keeps your curtains smelling fresh. All of our curtain cleaning technicians come fully equipped with a number of deodorisers and will provide you an option of fragrance on the day.
Curtain Cleaning Prices
The cost of dry-cleaning curtains can vary depending on a number of things. One factor which impacts the price is the material of the curtains. Curtain cleaning starts from around £5 per square metre of material.
Delicate materials such as silk may be more costly than materials like cotton. If you’ve got stains and spillages within the drapes, you may also find that the cost of dry-cleaning your curtains may be more expensive, as additional solutions will need to be used. We may alter our services to meet your individual needs and requirements, especially if you are on a tight budget.
