10 Reasons to Have Your Drapes, Blinds, Shades and Upholstery Professionally Cleaned

Whether your draperies frame the stage or adorn your windows, professional cleaning is a must to maintain their quality and beauty. Here are 10 reasons to have your stage draperies and window treatments professionally cleaned by Premier Drapery Cleaning.

1. Stay up to code.
Draperies, theatrical lighting, and props can quickly become fire hazards if your draperies are not in compliance with fire safety regulations. On average, flame retardant needs to be reapplied to draperies/soft goods every 3 to 5 years to remain effective. Buildings with high humidity levels or spot cleaning of draperies/soft goods with water-based products will remove flame retardant properties from your draperies/soft goods; however, our on-site process will ensure they’re up to code.

2. Improve air quality indoors.
Draperies and window treatments act as built-in air filters, capturing dust, pollutants, chemical cleaners, and allergens. In fact, the concentration of some pollutants is 2 to 5 times higher indoors than outdoors, according to a report by the Environmental Protection Agency. To improve indoor air quality and ensure a healthy environment, opt for professional cleaning.

3. Prevent the spread of disease.
Because draperies act as filters, they can provide fertile ground for microscopic pests like dust mites and bacteria. Even if your drapes appear clean, they may not be, and unclean draperies have been linked to the spread of infectious disease. To ensure your fabrics are deeply cleaned, trust in professional cleaners.

4. Enjoy a true clean that isn’t masked by toxins and fumes.
Unlike traditional cleaning processes which waste water and require harsh chemicals, our cleaning process produces no waste water and leaves no toxic residue or harsh fumes after cleaning. You can be sure your drapes have been thoroughly cleaned inside and out.

5. Save money – lots of it.
Have you priced stage draperies or window treatments lately?  They’re expensive.  And if you don’t protect your investment, airborne pollutants and ultraviolet light can cause dry rot or sun rot which will destroy your drapery fabrics. Draperies, acoustical panels, and window treatments are far more expensive to replace than clean. In fact, our cleaning process costs a fraction of the cost of replacing your existing stage curtains or draperies, potentially saving you thousands of dollars.

6. Avoid the tricky take-down and rehanging process.
Chances are, your draperies were professionally hung and installed. Removing and rehanging them on your own can be a difficult (and dangerous!) procedure. Avoid wasting time, risking injury, and the extra expense of shipping heavy draperies by letting us take care of it with on-site cleaning.

7. Avoid damaging your draperies.
Cleaning draperies on your own is a risky, time consuming process which can easily result in damaged, shrunken, stretched-out, or faded draperies. Avoid this problem by leaving professional cleaning to the experts.

8. Rejuvenate the look and feel of your draperies and window treatments.
Over time, draperies can become weighed down with dust and dirt, lose their shape, and begin to fray. To give your draperies and window treatments the look and feel they had when you first bought them, consider a professional cleaning.

9. Extend the life of your draperies and window treatments.
Neglecting to clean your draperies and window treatments can result in damages that are beyond repair. Regular professional cleaning, on the other hand, can drastically extend the lifetime of your draperies and window treatments.

10. Trust in the experts.
We trust professionals to design and install our draperies and window treatments, and when it comes to cleaning and upkeep, the same level of expertise is required. To ensure your draperies and window treatments maintain their quality and beauty, trust in the professional cleaning technicians at Premier Drapery Cleaning.
