Tips for a longer fabric life

Tips for a Longer Life

Apart from the regular recommended cleanings you can take steps to maintain your home fabrics. To make sure that they have the longest life possible, follow these easy tips.

  • Vacuum your drapes regularly (every 3-4 months)
  • Rotate your drapes once a year to vary sun exposure
  • Protect your drapes from direct air from heating vents to prevent dust accumulation and discolouration by installing air deflectors
  • Deal with stains immediately. Stains can set in over time and be difficult or impossible to remove.
  • Vacuum carpets and rugs weekly to remove dust and dirt
  • Vacuum upholstery on a weekly basis to remove dust and soil particles
  • Rotate seat cushions to even out wear on your upholstery
  • Read and follow all manufacturers care labels carefully
