Drapes and Blinds Cleaning
Like any other surface in our homes and properties drapes and blinds collect dirt, accumulate grime and hold odor, especially the more porous materials. Our local team of professional cleaners know the importance of clean and well-maintained spaces and therefore know the techniques and tools of drape and blind maintenance.
We clean fine fabrics and intricate pieces using wet and dry cleaning methods — our cleaning methods all depend on the particular fabrics and the cleaning needs. And, it's important to note here: all drape and blind material is carefully inspected and tested to determine which cleaning method is best suited for each particular application.

When Should My Drapes Be Cleaned?
A good rule-of-thumb is to clean drapes approximately every two years. A recent survey by SERVPRO disclosed that the average customer believes drapes should be cleaned when they look dirty. Depending on your heating system, the amount of smokers in the home, and other factors, drapes may not show soil for two to six years. The oily atmospheric soil will gradually cause the fabric to deteriorate. Often, direct sunlight is unjustly blamed for this. You may triple the life of your draperies through professional cleaning, which is relatively inexpensive compared to replacement costs.
When your draperies need cleaning, make certain they are dry cleaned ONLY. Only a small percentage of materials can be laundered. If in doubt, call us for advice. Be discriminating in your choice of professional dry cleaners. Some cleaners have equipment designed for clothes cleaning, while others have equipment specifically designed for draperies.
SERVPRO of East Greenwich / Warwick has an exclusive process of dry cleaning draperies right in your home. There’s no need to have your home or office exposed while your draperies are out being cleaned. We inject a specially formulated solvent into your drapery under pressure and extract the chemical, leaving your drapes clean. This special process results in no damage or shrinkage to the material. Most importantly, you will get quality cleaning at a reasonable price.
