Drapes and Blinds Cleaning
Although drapes and blinds don't necessarily get the same foot traffic as the floor or couch, they still can easily collect dust and debris, and get discolored from the sun. You should clean your blinds and drapes just as much as you clean the rest of your house, but if you've neglected them for a while, chances are they have a lot of build-up that will require a lot of work to remove. SERVPRO® of New Orleans Uptown & Mid-City will inspect the type of blinds or drapes that you have and put together a cleaning plan to restore them. At SERVPRO of New Orleans Uptown & Mid-City, we have five cleaning methods that are sure to make your blinds or drapes look brand new.

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 New Orleans Uptown & Mid-City 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.
