Drapes and Blinds Cleaning
Your window treatments—drapes, blinds and curtains—are another often-overlooked part of your home or business’s furnishings that needs to be maintained and cleaned to extend their functional lives. Between everyday respiration, circulation from your HVAC system, exhaust from cooking, fireplace smoke and cigarette smoke, your window treatments can take a beating. SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield excels at cleaning fine fabrics and intricate pieces using the appropriate wet or dry cleaning methods. We begin by carefully inspecting your window treatments and testing fabrics to determine the best cleaning method. From there, our crew uses our state-of-the-art equipment and products to restore your furnishings right at your home or business.

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.
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 Glastonbury / Wethersfield 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.
