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
