Caring for Curtains and Draperies

Caring for Curtains and Draperies

Curtains and drapes come in many styles and can add elegance, privacy, and sophistication to your home. Draperies can be expensive, and you will want to take proper care in order to keep them looking clean and beautiful for years to come. Although the bulk of drapery care centers around preventing drapes from encountering damaging materials, your curtains and drapes will need periodic professional cleanings to extend their lifespan.

Drapery Care Tips

To ensure the longest possible life of your draperies, make sure that they are protected from:

  1. Water: Protect your drapes and curtains from the rain or any flooding inside your home.
  2. Strong Smells: Make sure you properly air your room out if there are strong odors present.
  3. Sunlight: Keep dark-colored drapes away from excessive sunlight to prevent fading.

In addition to these preventative measures, you may want to consider vacuuming your drapes once a month to help prevent the build-up of dust, and periodically iron your drapes in order to keep them looking fresh and crisp.
