Drapes and Blinds Cleaning

Cleaning fine fabrics and intricate pieces are one of the many things SERVPRO of Mankato / Owatonna excels at. After inspecting and testing fabrics we may use or wet or dry cleaning methods. One of our System's five cleaning methods are chosen after determining which one is best suited for your cleaning needs. Each cleaning method uses equipment designed specifically for cleaning fine fabrics such as drapes and blinds. As tempted as some may be to attempt cleaning drapes and blinds in a washing machine, this is not recommended. It can cause damage that may leave you with the need to purchase new items.

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 Mankato / Owatonna 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.
