Curtain Cleaning on a regular basis (every six to twelve months ideally) not only maintains the life and look of your curtains but it also gets rid of so much more! Allergens, smoke, dust, germs and mites which cling to the fabric are removed with a Professional Curtain Cleaning Service. This is especially important if you or anyone in your home suffers from asthma! One of our son's does so we know how incredibly important it is to keep the house as dust free as is humanly possible!
Unless curtains are vacuumed (which you can do yourself) and cleaned on a regular basis the allergens will stay there!
The top triggers according to asthma Uk are; "damp and mould, dust mites, pets and cigarette smoke."
With regular Curtain and Upholstery Cleaning you will not only be looking after the beauty of your curtains but also keeping the Germs and Dust Mites at bay.
This isn't to say that you need to have Professional Curtain Cleaning as part of your daily or weekly clean however it does go a long way to helping you keep your homes as Clean and Germ Free as is possible.
As listed on www.asthma.org.uk there are many things you can do yourself to help maintain the cleanliness in your homes on a regular basis;
• REGULAR VACUUMING
• AIRING ROOMS
• FREEZING AND THEN WASHING SOFT TOYS
• 60 DEGREE WASHES
• CHOOSING HARD FLOORS RATHER THAN CARPETS
• USING DUST MITE COVERS ON BEDDING
• AIR FILTERS AND PURIFIERS
If these procedures are carried out regularly it will go a long way to keeping the germs at bay.
With regards to Curtain and Upholstery Cleaning - Regular Vacuuming is the first stage to be carried out in the war against the 'Top Triggers'. When doing this try to get into the creases or 'Pinch Pleats' if you have them as the heading of your curtains. The nozzle part or attachment of the hoover will help with this!
If you also have at the very least a yearly Curtain Dy Cleaning or Curtain Deep Cleaning Service carried out it will help even further.
A Deep Cleaning method is the most effective way of cleaning curtains however not all fabrics can take this method. If you are ever in doubt as to whether your curtains should be Dy Cleaned or Deep Cleaned then please do ask a professional!
Remember - they can be cleaned whilst they are still hanging so there is no need to be without your curtains. In actual fact - having your curtains cleaned whilst they are still hanging is the safest way of ensuring 100% No Shrinkage!
