Drapes and Blinds Cleaning
Dressing Up the Windows of Your Danbury Home
Over the years of dust circulation and dirt accumulation, fabrics, and soft textiles in your Danbury home can begin to show their age and wear. As much as the technology and techniques exist to revitalize the look and feel of these fixtures, many homeowners do not notice the issue because it has been a gradual decline spanning years. Guests to your home are the ones most likely to see the decline of fabrics like drapes and window dressings like the blinds.
How Do Drapes and Window Dressing Fabrics Get Damaged?
There are many ways that drapes and blinds can look worse than they should, and this is rarely ever attributed solely to age. Stains and circulating particles can penetrate the fibers of the fabric drapes and leave blinds with thick residues that require potent cleaning products and elbow grease to remove. Some of the most damaging substances, particles, and practices can require dry and wet cleaning tactics to restore.
• Cigarette and cigar smoke/nicotine staining
• Dust and dander
• Puffback soot
• Water staining and spots

When Should My Drapes Be Cleaned?
A good rule-of-thumb is to clean drapes approximately every two years. A recent survey by SERVPRO disclosed that the average customer believes drapes should be cleaned when they look dirty. Depending on your heating system, the amount of smokers in the home, and other factors, drapes may not show soil for two to six years. The oily atmospheric soil will gradually cause the fabric to deteriorate. Often, direct sunlight is unjustly blamed for this. You may triple the life of your draperies through professional cleaning, which is relatively inexpensive compared to replacement costs.
When your draperies need cleaning, make certain they are dry cleaned ONLY. Only a small percentage of materials can be laundered. If in doubt, call us for advice. Be discriminating in your choice of professional dry cleaners. Some cleaners have equipment designed for clothes cleaning, while others have equipment specifically designed for draperies.

We inject a specially formulated solvent into your drapery under pressure and extract the chemical, leaving your drapes clean. This special process results in no damage or shrinkage to the material. Most importantly, you will get quality cleaning at a reasonable price.
