How to care for your curtains

Prolonging the life of your curtains can be tricky. With all of that dust and sun exposure, not to mention the constant pulling and tugging, curtains suffer a lot more wear and tear than we may realise.

At Flawless Curtains and Blinds, we’re experts when it comes to properly caring for your curtains so that, even after years of use, they stay looking as good as they did the day you bought them.

Quality Curtains Gawler

Vacuum Them Regularly

Whether you take your curtains down or buy the appropriate vacuum attachments, finding a way to vacuum your curtains on a regular basis is key to keeping them looking good for longer. When you vacuum your curtains on a fortnightly basis, you will reduce the break down of fibres that is often caused by dust build up. Every home – particularly those with pets – has enough dust to do severe damage to curtains over the years, so be sure to clean the excess off every couple weeks. Not only will your curtains stay looking amazing, but you’ll extend their life by several years.

Have Them Custom Made

When purchasing curtains for your home, be sure to have them custom made. Having curtains made specific to your home, lifestyle, and needs is key to keeping them intact for longer. Different materials react better in different kinds of light, temperatures, etc. and the better suited they are for the conditions of your home, the easier they will be to care for and keep looking good.

Stick to One Interior Designer

If you hire an interior designer to look after the indoor features of your home, be sure to hire one and stick with them. Your interior designer will know exactly what works in the space – aesthetically and functionally, so keeping with one designer and their vision will result in a space that is easier to maintain and care for. This includes your curtains. Your designer will help you choose curtains that are custom made for your unique space, offer specific tips on how to care for them, and generally do whatever they can to ensure you can enjoy them for years to come.

Hire Fully Trained Curtain Manufacturers

Don’t cut corners when it comes to the manufacturers of your curtains. The more qualified the manufacturer, the higher quality the product. Choosing a team that is fully trained and understands curtains through and through will be one of the best things you can do when it comes to curtain care. Starting with a quality product right from the get-go will set you up for success when it comes to longevity and outstanding design.

Hire Fully Trained Curtain Installers

Just as you should only trust a fully trained manufacturing team, so too should you only trust a fully trained installation team. Hiring a team of qualified curtain installers will guarantee that your new curtains will be treated with the utmost care. A team of true professionals, like the ones at Flawless Curtains and Blinds, will have your curtains set up beautifully so you don’t have to worry about damage or issues that arise with improper handling.
