How to Clean Fire-Retardant Curtainsthumbnail

 

Fire-retardant fabrics have been treated with chemicals to lower or limit their ability to burn. You can find fire-retardant curtains manufactured from cotton, polyester, fiberglass, wool and linen. According to the Apparel Search Company, curtains labeled as permanently fire-retardant, inherently fire-retardant or durably fire-retardant have fire-retardant properties woven into the fabric that will not dissipate with cleaning.

If your curtains bear a label that says they are merely fire-retardant, they have likely been sprayed or coated with a fire-retardant chemical that will gradually wash or wear away. The chemicals used to make fabric flame-retardant may dissolve with both water washing and dry cleaning. If you wash fabric marked flame- or fire-retardant, you will need to re-treat the fabric after washing to restore the fire retardancy.

At Curtain Clean we can clean your curtains and retreat them with Flame Retardant.  The treatment comes with a 5 year compliance certificate that is needed for public spaces.
