The curtains and blinds of your home and office are functional part of interior design – they protect you from bright sunlight, reflect heat or, on the contrary, they help to keep the room warm during the winter months. However, curtains accumulate dust and experts recommend thorough cleaning once a year.
Curtains can be cleaned during any season. It depends on your cleaning habits and needs. Based on the curtain design and fabric type, suitable cleaning methods must be used.
Some curtains can be cleaned at home, for example, by machine-washing them at a suitable regime with an appropriate detergent or they can be washed by hands. However, some curtains are too large to fit in the washing machine, while others require special detergents or techniques to prevent damage during washing.
Thick curtain cleaning
Thick curtain cleaning is a quite complex process, as depending on the previous cleaning or their hanging location they must be first cleaned from dust. The curtains must be carefully removed, cleaned, dried and ironed and only then they can be re-attached to the curtain rails.
Cleaning of combined fabrics
Curtains made from, for example, silk fabrics must be cleaned very carefully. Silk is a very fine, yet elegant and natural material, but it is lined with another type of fabric. Thus, the cleaning must be equally appropriate and efficient for both fabrics. This applies to other types of curtains that combine two or more fabrics or other materials, for example, in their finishing. Also, when ironing such combined curtains, you may not forget that each fabric has its own properties that require different heat levels.
