What is the best way to clean my curtains?
There are 2 main ways to clean curtains. The first way is to clean them while they and hanging. This method is routinely offered by carpet and upholstery cleaners, and uses steam cleaning methods. This will freshen up your curtains, but won’t lift ingrained stains and dirt from fabric, and generally only the front of the curtain is cleaned.
The second option is full immersion cleaning, using a dry cleaning or wet cleaning method. The full immersion dry cleaning process, allows for total cleaning of the curtain or blinds, either in a dry cleaning solvent, or in some cases water. This option is well recognised as the best practice for removing strains, dirt and dust from curtains and blinds.
We provide full immersion dry cleaning or wet cleaning for curtains and blinds in Melbourne
