Drapes and Blinds Cleaning

When Blinds Are Dusty, and Drapes Are Dirty in Shreveport

As we go about our day-to-day activities in our homes and workplaces, we stop noticing the window treatments that cover the windows. Many homeowners in Shreveport clean and maintain these curtains and drapes routinely by doing:

• Light vacuuming with a soft-bristled head
• Wiping vertically with a cloth that statically captures dust particles
• Feather-dusting that now circulates moats throughout the living area
• Tossing in the washing machine and hoping for the best

The Professional Way of Window Treatment Cleaning

Then there is always the option to call in the experts from SERVPRO of South Shreveport to inspect and evaluate the soft fabrics that provide you privacy and some protection from the glaring sun. By offering an in-place cleaning, in most cases, the interior rooms of your Shreveport home are not a "fishbowl" during the treatment.

The Dust and Grime Right in Front of You

The path of brand-new hanging drapes to dingy, dirty, and stained ones is a gradual one, not often noticed by the residents, but guests usually pick-up on the not so clean walls and windows. We can improve the practical service length of your curtains and drapes with our tried and true methods of "in place" cleaning. We can force a solvent, not water-based, into the material to emulsify oily substances and particles and then vacuum them away, leaving great looking drapes or curtains. And, we also clean blinds.

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.

Professional Cleaning

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.

SERVPRO of South Shreveport, Bossier has an exclusive process of dry cleaning draperies right in your home. There’s no need to have your home or office exposed while your draperies are out being cleaned. 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.
