At QClean we’ve redefined the standards of curtain cleaning.

If you’ve ever wondered why your living space doesn’t feel as fresh as it should, the answer might be hanging right in front of you – your curtains.

Curtains offer more than aesthetic appeal to your windows; they serve as discreet defenders that help keep out dust, filter harsh sunlight, and maintain your privacy.

However, just like any other item in your home, they also accumulate dirt, allergens, and odours over time. These hidden culprits can affect the air quality in your home and even trigger allergies.

That’s why we’re here to offer you an unparalleled curtain cleaning service that promises not just cleanliness, but also longevity for your curtains.

With our expert care, your curtains will not only look revitalised but also contribute to a healthier, more comfortable living environment.

The Importance Of Curtain Cleaning

Curtains are far more than mere pieces of fabric; they are integral elements of your home’s interior design, offering both aesthetic appeal and practical utility.

They serve as the backdrop to your living spaces, adding a touch of elegance while also performing functional roles like controlling light and providing privacy.

Investing in high-quality curtains is akin to making a long-term commitment to your home’s beauty and comfort. Therefore, it’s only sensible to take steps to prolong their life and keep them in pristine condition.

When it comes to curtain care, dry cleaning is not an optional indulgence but an essential requirement. Unlike traditional washing methods that use water, dry cleaning employs specialised cleaning agents that clean without causing shrinkage or altering the fabric’s original form.

This is especially vital for curtains crafted from delicate materials like silk, velvet, or linen, which are susceptible to damage from water-based cleaning techniques.

Why Have Your Curtains Professionally Cleaned?

Investing in quality curtains is not a minor expense; it’s a significant home furnishing investment.

Let’s be clear – most curtain fabrics are delicate and come with a “Dry Clean Only” tag for a reason. These fabrics are often made from premium materials that are sensitive to UV light and designed to hang in a specific manner.

While you may find numerous DIY videos suggesting at-home dry cleaning solutions, the reality is that entrusting this task to professionals is the wisest course of action. Attempting to clean your curtains yourself poses a significant risk of damaging, or shrinking the fabric, especially if made of delicate materials or with intricate designs.

At QClean, we have the know-how, specialised equipment, and the right cleaning agents to not only clean, but also protect the lifespan of your curtains.

When you get your curtains professionally cleaned, these are some of the benefits you can expect:

Curtain Cleaning - Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive about our curtain cleaning services, along with our answers.

Dry cleaning is generally considered a better method for cleaning curtains compared to steam cleaning for a few key reasons:

  • It is gentler on fabrics. The cleaning agents used in dry cleaning gently dissolve dirt, oils and grime without damaging or shrinking delicate fabrics like silk, velvet, linen etc. The high heat of steam can cause irreversible damage.
  • It cleans better. The agitation motion in dry cleaning machines allows the solvents to fully penetrate the fabric and lift away ingrained dirt. Steam cleaning can leave behind residues.
  • It sanitises. The cleaning agents have disinfectant properties that sanitise curtains by killing bacteria, dust mites, mould etc. Steam cleaning may not sanitise as thoroughly.
  • It removes odours. The cleaning agents used in dry cleaning are very effective at removing trapped odours from smoke, cooking fumes, pet smells etc. Steam cleaning may mask but not eliminate odours.
  • It gets curtains cleaner. Dry cleaning can make dingy, yellowed curtains look bright white and new again. Steam cleaning often cannot get curtains as clean.
  • It lasts longer. Curtains cleaned by dry cleaning tend to stay clean and fresh looking much longer than steam cleaned curtains before needing to be cleaned again.

So for anyone wanting deep, sanitising cleaning for curtains and drapes, dry cleaning is the superior choice over at-home steam cleaning methods. 

We clean most types of curtains, including but not limited to, velvet, silk, linen, and synthetic materials. Our team is trained to handle a variety of fabrics and designs.

While we are equipped to handle a wide variety of curtain fabrics and designs, there are some curtains that require more attention than others.

For example, curtains with rubberised blackout lining may not be suitable for cleaning, depending on their age and condition.

This type of material can break down over time, especially when exposed to sunlight and heat. This can lead to cracking, peeling, or flaking of the lining. If the material is dry cleaned, the combination of the heat and the cleaning agents can further degrade the lining during the process.

We recommend a pre-cleaning inspection to assess the condition of your curtains and determine the most appropriate cleaning method.

Absolutely, we are fully equipped to handle commercial curtain cleaning for a variety of business settings, including offices, hotels, restaurants, schools, and healthcare facilities.

Absolutely. We offer a free pick-up and delivery service for your curtains. Our team will collect your curtains from your residential or commercial location and return them to you once they’ve been professionally cleaned. Just contact us to arrange a suitable time for collection.

The frequency of curtain cleaning depends on various factors such as location, exposure to dust, pets, kitchen odours, and personal preferences. However, as a general guideline, we recommend having your home curtains dry cleaned at least once every 2 to 3 years to maintain their appearance and hygiene.

We recommend vacuuming your curtains regularly to help keep them looking their best between deeper cleanings.

Vacuuming helps remove surface dust, dirt, pet hair, lint and other debris that inevitably collects on curtains. Letting these things build up on curtains can lead to faster soiling and yellowing of the fabric over time. 

With regular vacuuming, along with periodic professional dry cleaning, you can keep your curtains looking and performing their best.
