Regular maintenance of curtains

Washing and Ironing

Having impeccable curtains is a challenge that begins with regular maintenance. Washing is an essential step. Choose a delicate cycle to avoid damaging the fabric, especially if it is precious materials such as silk or velvet. Gentle spinning will also benefit the durability of your curtains. After washing, comes the ironing stage which deserves your full attention. Opt for a temperature appropriate to the nature of the textile in order to preserve its beauty.

Minor Repairs and Wear Prevention

Over time, curtains may show minimal signs of wear: pulled threads, small tears, etc. It is then appropriate to intervene promptly by carrying out minor repairs before these turn into major damage that is difficult to correct. At the same time, the use of antistatic products will not only repel dust but also prevent the premature appearance of usual wear and tear. By following this practical guide to maintaining and preserving your curtains , you contribute to the lasting maintenance of their initial elegance.

Mistakes to avoid when cleaning curtains

When cleaning your curtains, certain mistakes must be avoided to preserve their beauty and longevity.

Firstly , using an aggressive stain remover can dull the color or even alter the fabric. It is best to use gentle products dedicated to delicate textiles.

Second , don't neglect the manufacturer's label. It provides valuable information on the proper care of each type of fabric. Ignoring these instructions could result in shrinkage or deformation of the textile.

Avoid exposing your curtains to too much sunlight after washing as this could cause them to whiten prematurely.

Remember that every mistake you make when cleaning accelerates the aging of your precious window ornaments.

Extend the life of your curtains

Protect your curtains from the sun

The sun, symbol of life and energy, can unfortunately be a source of damage to your curtains. Ultraviolet rays have a bleaching effect on fabrics , thus diminishing their original beauty. We have some solutions to offer you to effectively protect your curtains against this silent threat:

  • Use solar or thermal liners that have reflective properties.
  • Choose curtains in a UV-resistant material like polyester.
  • Consider installing anti-UV films on your windows.
  • Rotate your curtains regularly if sunlight always hits one side more than the other.
  • When you are away for a long period of time, close the shutters to minimize exposure to the sun.

Establish a maintenance routine

In addition to protection from the sun, it is essential to establish a maintenance routine to extend the life of your curtains. Start by carefully reading the instructions provided by the manufacturer regarding their cleaning. Some require dry cleaning while others can be machine washed. To maintain their freshness and prevent the accumulation of dust and other allergens, we recommend cleaning every three months . Be sure to iron them at a low temperature to avoid any damage to the fabric.
