Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I have my curtains and blinds professionally cleaned?

Drapes, Curtains, Blinds and Shades should be cleaned every few years, but it depends on what the window treatments are exposed to. For example, if there you light a fire on a regular basis or someone smokes in the home, more soils and air contaminants will collect in and one the fabric. This can make the air you breathe less healthy and in these cases it is recommended that drapes and blinds are cleaned every 1-2 years. Curtains and shades in kitchens often retain grease and more toxic particles which should be removed every two years or so, and this will help lengthen the useful life of your window treatments as well.
