The Importance of Cleaning Your Draperies & Blinds

Your window treatments collect dust, dirt and pollutants more than many other areas of your house, but they are often neglected when it comes to your cleaning routine. This collection of dust & grime not only causes dullness and premature wear and tear, but is also not good for the health of your family. While the sound of an additional item to add to your cleaning routine sounds daunting, there are so many benefits to keeping your window treatments clean, including:

  1. Maintaining the cleanliness of your home & the health of your family. Routine cleaning of your drapery & blinds helps to eliminate built-up dirt, dust, odors, pet dander, and contaminants that could contribute to the growth of germs & bacteria.
  2. Keeping the space looking bright & airy. When you don’t properly care for your window treatments, they can appear to look dull, discolored and dingy.
  3. Protecting your investment. Your draperies are often investment pieces, carefully chosen to enhance a space within your home. When properly cared for, you can greatly extend the life of these pieces.
