Top Curtain Cleaning related questions
Curtain cleaning is often a complex process that requires special techniques and equipment to achieve a good result without damaging the curtains. It’s one of those cleaning jobs that’s best left to a professional.
Most curtains will need proper cleaning at least once a year. But the ideal frequency will depend on the type of curtain, the amount of dust in the air, and whether your curtains are exposed to a lot of heat/humidity. If your curtain is starting to show the dirt or smell musty, it’s definitely time for a clean.
The most popular curtain cleaning methods include steam cleaning, dry cleaning, and machine washing. The best technique for your curtains will depend on their fabric type and build.
The best way to keep your curtains clean is to regularly shake and dust them down so they don’t collect dirt. It’s also a good idea to keep your windows clean (including screens) as dirt and dust easily transfer from windows to curtains.
Curtain cleaning can take anywhere from 1 hour to a full day, depending on the size of your curtains, the number of curtains, and the type of cleaning process used.

What does a curtain cleaning service include?
Your curtain cleaning service will depend on the type of curtains in your home and the type of treatments they need. They’ll start by inspecting your curtains to understand the materials they’re made of and decide on the best cleaning methods. Generally, here’s what you can expect when your curtain cleaner shows up:
Curtain dry cleaning
While some types of curtains can be washed in the washing machine, steam and dry cleaning techniques are much more commonly used. Dry cleaning is the best method for the most delicate curtain fabrics like velvet, velour, tapestry, wool, chenille, brocade, and silk. But also those with a block-out lining that’s easily damaged. Your curtain cleaner will carefully take down your curtains (they’ll bring a step ladder) and take them to their dry cleaning facility. They’ll remove dust before pre-treating any stains. Next, they’ll put the curtains into a dry cleaning machine with a solvent, which removes the dirt before spinning to dry. Finally, they’ll return your curtains and hang them up for you so you don’t have to do a thing.
Curtain steam cleaning
Curtain steam cleaning is a popular method for cleaning drapes. Your cleaner may even be able to leave your curtains hanging while they do it, speeding up the process. They’ll use a steam cleaning machine with a jet nozzle to gently steam the fabric from top to bottom on both sides. This helps break down dirt, which your cleaner will gently brush away with a soft-bristled drapery brush. Once your curtains are cleaned, they’ll need around 30 minutes to fully dry.
Upholstery other services
Most curtain cleaning professionals also offer other types of upholstery cleaning - often during the same service. You
might like to bundle your curtain cleaning with blind cleaning, carpet cleaning, mattress cleaning, or couch cleaning to get the best value money (and an all-over clean house).
