Dust and other dirty particles can settle on top of your curtains and in between the crevices without you even realizing it. Every time you open or close dirty curtains, the dust and other debris get mixed in with your home’s air. It will eventually land on your furniture and floors, making your home look and smell dirty and dusty. This way, no matter how much you dust and clean your home, or even conduct deep cleaning services, it can keep getting dirty because of your curtains.
If you suffer from indoor allergies, washing your curtains regularly will really help ease symptoms. The Healthy Home recommends that you conduct curtain cleaning in Dubai and in the UAE every 3 to 6 months. Having your curtains cleaned on a regular basis is the best way to keep your house fresh and clean throughout the year. Especially during dusty and stormy months.
Make sure you remove all pins, hangers, and other elements from your drapes or curtains before washing, or the fabric and your machine may become damaged. Shake them well to remove any dust and particles, and down the hem if the fabric is likely to shrink. You can also check with your local dry cleaners if they are able to clean your curtains, but only trusted cleaners should undergo this and on appropriate material.
An easy way to vacuum your curtains is to remove them from the windows and place them flat on the floor or on your bed. Use the soft brush attachment when vacuuming or place a piece of nylon at the end of the nozzle so that the fabric doesn't get sucked into the vacuum or get damaged. Move the nozzle gently from top to the bottom, paying special attention and care to the edges and between any folds. Repeat the same process on the linings and on the other side of your curtains as well for a thorough deep clean.
