Curtain Cleaning Singapore - How Often Should You Clean Your Curtains?

How Often Should You Clean Your Curtains?

Every household item—from bed sheets to dishes to carpets—has a recommended cleaning schedule. The same goes for your curtains.

As a curtain dry cleaning service provider in Singapore, we recommend having your curtains washed every three to six months and there’s good reasoning to that.

The Benefits of Curtain Cleaning

Curtains or any other window treatments are more than merely a décor in your home. They provide privacy, keep the heat out, and regulate the sunlight that permeates your home. But, much like many other elements in your living space, they collect dust, dirt, and other loose debris which over time can not only make them look dull but can also create a harmful environment.

Exposure to the dust trapped in the curtains may not seem like much. But, they can actually trigger allergic reactions and other serious respiratory problems like asthma and lung infections particularly to kids, elderly, and other people with weaker immune systems.

In addition to that, clean curtains also offer the following benefits:

  • Add an aesthetic appeal to your home 
  • Prevent mould and mildew growth which can also trigger allergies 
  • Create a healthier environment free of dust, dust mites, and other allergens
  • Prolong the life of your drapery

While every 3 to 6 months is appropriate for most households, more frequent cleaning may be necessary due to the following reasons:

Allergies: If a family member suffers from allergies, regular curtain cleaning should be an essential part of your household cleaning routine.  You might consider carpet cleaning as well.

Smoking: Smoke particles from cigarettes are easily trapped in curtains, which over time can leave a strong odour and cause your curtains to become yellow. In this case, clean your curtains every month, if possible.

Other Living Conditions: If you live near the sea or in a particularly dusty area, frequent cleaning is also a must, because the salty sea air and the dusty breeze are not exactly your best friends.

Curtain Cleaning By Presto Drycleaners

When washing your curtains, make sure to follow the cleaning instructions on the care tag. Curtains can be easily damaged by harsh detergents, high water temperatures, and mechanical actions. This is particularly true for window treatments that have a blackout lining, embroidery, embellishments, borders, or pleats.

In this case, it’s better to leave the job to the professionals.

At Presto Drycleaners, we offer laundry and dry cleaning services for different types of curtains—day, night, blackout, Roman blinds, organza, etc. For your added convenience, we also offer free dismantling and installation service for a minimum spend of $150. We take pride in our drivers who are trained to dismantle and install curtains in your home.

However, what truly separates us from the competition is our commitment to transparent pricing. We charge a standard $12/kg for day, night, and blackout curtains. We also provide express services with a shortened turnaround time for an additional surcharge.
