The importance of Cleaning your Curtains

cleaning guide from Art of Clean

Your curtains can be a massive part of the look of your home interior. They are not always just for show but have multiple uses including blocking the sunlight out, especially while you are trying to sleep. 

Cleaning and maintaining your curtains can sometimes be forgotten about, and this can cost you significantly. You ask me what the benefits of cleaning my Curtains then are? Let me tell you:

Removing dirt and Grime

You will find that your curtains will attract quite a lot of dust over time, if you don’t get your curtains cleaned regularly you will find this will become more noticeable as time goes on and harder to be removed. The curtains will start to look very old. Dust can also be a trigger for lots of allergies.

Mouldy areas 

Some curtains mostly blacked out Curtains can cause condensation on the back and become damp; this will eventually turn into mould. This can be quite damaging to you and your family’s health. If you avoid this happening by getting your Curtains regularly cleaned, then this is a win-win.

Give your curtains some everyday care

Give your curtains a quick Vacuum now and then, at least once or twice a week, this will keep them, looking fresh and clean. We recommend that you get them professionally cleaned once or twice every two years. We do not recommend you wash the Curtains yourself; you might end up damaging them, and depending on the type of curtain can be costly.

Suppose you find it difficult or don’t want the hassle of taking the Curtains down then Art of Clean offer a service where they will come and take your curtains down and return them to save you the hassle. 

In that case, we will then take them to Farthings of Cambridge who are established Dry Cleaners and have been for 30 years.


So, forgetting to look after your curtains can mean they will become old and worn looking much faster. This can make your home look gloomy, dull, and lacking character. This can end up being costly to you and can even risk your health.
