Curtains are an indispensable accessory for your living spaces. They protect from unwanted light and heat, provide privacy and improve the aesthetic appearance of your room. So enjoy your curtains, but they, like all things, need daily care and curtain support.
The first thing that comes to mind is dust! In our big city life, a lot of dust settles on furniture, and we dust almost daily. But we tend to neglect what probably accounts for most of the dust that gets into our homes: our curtains. Dust your curtains regularly. How. You can take them down from time to time and give them a good shake outside the house. Remember to wear a mask to protect yourself. If this is not possible or too difficult, use a vacuum cleaner.
Accidents are always possible, especially if you have a child (or children) in the house. Stains are inevitable, and you will need to clean the curtains easily. Be sure to read the instructions on the label of your curtains before cleaning or washing them. Some curtains and curtain hangers cannot be washed, only dry cleaned. So take them to the dry cleaners to avoid ruining your curtains and tiebacks.
If they can be washed, do so with warm water and soap. But again, follow the label instructions to see what temperature is appropriate. Soak them for a while along with a fabric softener. This will give your living space a fresh look.
If you just want to remove stains, you can use a piece of cloth with liquid dish soap. You can also try wiping with damp curtain towels. These dry very quickly and are very useful in emergency situations (such as parties). Also, most stains are best removed immediately, so don’t leave them overnight as they will be harder to remove.
If you prefer to hang curtains over radiators to conceal them, be sure to treat them with a flame retardant or use fire-retardant materials to reduce the risk of fire in your home. It’s better to use curtain holders, as they help keep curtains away from heaters and prevent them from catching fire easily.
If you want to improve the aesthetics of your curtains, buy curtain holders. They do a great job. For example, a simple plain curtain can be instantly transformed with a contrasting, eye-catching, and beautiful gusset. They are not difficult to maintain. Make sure that the gussets can support the weight of your curtains, otherwise, they will be heavy on the gussets and will not hang properly. This will affect the appearance of the curtains.
Avoid using metal curtain hangers in damp areas. Metal handles can rust and damage your curtains. For more details regarding professional cleaning services like curtains, mattresses, sofa, lounge, and carpets please visit Clean Couches Sydney.
