To educate you on how to go about cleaning your home curtains without needing to take them down, End of Lease Clean- your reliable cleaning company in Melbourne suggests you these tips.

  1. Vacuum Your Dusty Curtains Properly Using a Powerful Cleaner with a Long Attachment 

If you’re dealing with a dust-filled curtain; use a quality vacuum cleaner with a long handle to clean the existing dust and debris. To quiver the dirt off properly you can make use of a lightweight and portable vacuum cleaner to keep it clean and in tip-top shape.

  • However, if you cannot reach the top of the curtain; you can also use a ladder set with someone holding it below to climb atop your curtains and shake them off from its pole/rod. Doing so will dislodge all adamant dirt and dust from the curtain’s surface.
  • You can also use a soft brush to dust of its surface (along with those curves and corners) manually

Our curtain cleaning specialists operating all across Melbourne also recommends using a lint roller to ensure nothing filthy stick on to the curtain surface. For a better operation; ask the friend below to pull the curtain flat and outwards to allow you better access to its surface and the dirt/dust settled over it.

  1. For Grease or Hideous Curtain Stains; Use the Power of Steam

Do you notice greasy or ugly stains on your curtain surface?

If so, then merely vacuuming or using soft brushes/lint rollers won’t be enough to remove them. That’s why our experienced cleaners recommend resorting to the power of steam.

  • Use a quality and powerful handheld steam cleaner to help extricate those existing grease stains and sticky dirt comprehensively while keeping your curtains in situ.
  • When using a steam cleaner; look to perform vertical strokes (gently) to allow the steam to seep into the curtain fibres without dousing it.
  • Look to work with small sections as that will allow you to cover every curve and corner of your dirty curtain.

(Note:) If you have thick curtains made of natural fibres then this steam cleaning approach will be best-suited to free its surface of all nasty grime, grease and horrid stains. However; you should still pay close attention to the manufacturer’s cleaning guidelines before steam cleaning your curtains.
