Beware of the claims of companies selling
chemical Curtain Cleaners.
There are companies out there selling a chemical product they call a curtain cleaner.
A curtain cleaner it is not. The product will remove and temporally control the bacteria that cause mildew on curtains. Mostly this is on the lining but not always. It’s similar to a product you would spray on cobblestones.
The chemical product can cause damage to fabrics especially if left to dry on the fabric. It can also comeback to life if allowed to dry on a fabric which is later washed and in doing so can damage or bleach the colour out of the fabric.
Products of this kind contain bleach under another name. It’s a different chemical form but still bleach.
The most important point of the claim about these curtain cleaners though, is it is not a curtain cleaner but a stain remover and mould killer.
To clean a curtain it needs washing or perhaps dry cleaning. All the chemical Curtain Cleaners do is remove the mildew and mildew stain on the patches that it is applied to. It does not remove any other stains, grease, hand creams, oils, dirt, dust, odours, cat and dog rubbings and hair, fly dirt, insect dirt, water marks and all those other hazards that are part of a curtains life.
Facetious claims of stitching coming undone during handling, curtains being damaged (which is what this product can do), are just that. At Curtain Cleaners.co.nz we take care of your curtains and repair small repairs of that nature. Often once curtains are few years old the stitching can become brittle or just simply rotten in the sun. We resew these as part of our curtain cleaning and restoration process.
Many people spend thousands of dollars on curtains and expect specialist advice on cleaning and care of their curtains.
Even if you don’t talk to us make sure that you talk to specialist Curtain Cleaners.
