How to Clean Curtains

Curtains can be a part of our home that can get neglected. Unlike the kitchen, bathroom and floors which get regular cleaning, curtains can often be forgotten. But it is important to clean your curtains regularly for several reasons:

– Dustmites can lurk in material and it is important to clean to get rid of them
– Smells can cling to fabric, which is something you do not want in your home
– Cleaning fabrics regularly helps those that may suffer from allergies such as asthma
– It refreshes them and ensures they last for years

Here are some of the methods we could recommend for ensuring your curtains remain in tip top condition!

– If your curtains are machine washable, you can do that on a regular basis and hang outside to dry
– For heavy weight curtains you can use the upholstery brush on your vacuum cleaner to give them a thorough clean between dry cleans
– If there is a minor stain on your curtains, you may be able to carefully clean that area. Take a lightly damp sponge to a discreet part of the curtain and see if it is colour-fast. If so, proceed to carefully clean the stain without rubbing.
– Depending on the fabric, you may be able to lightly steam clean your curtains. Check the manufacturers instructions on your steam cleaner to ensure you can use it.
– Regularly clean around the curtain rail to ensure cobwebs and dust do not gather there.

We would not recommend using wipes, bleach or detergents on any curtains as they are likely to damage the fabric. Always check the washing instructions for your curtains to see which methods would work for you!

There is nothing better than a Spring clean for your kitchen! It makes you feel good and looks great!

Here at Quad Services we highly recommend having a deep clean of your kitchen from time to time. This can include clearing your pantry and cupboards of old food, deep cleaning areas of the kitchen that can get overlooked such as cooker hoods and throwing away unused items that take up space.  We recently made a video on how to clean your oven which should form part of any deep clean. Clearing out your fridge on a regular basis is important as well as deep cleaning the shelves and freezer areas. Once you give your kitchen a real Spring clean we can guarantee you will feel motivated and really enjoy using your kitchen space again!

From time to time, your wardrobe can really become a mess! This can make it difficult to find clothing, put outfits together and can generally leave you feeling anxious! Walking into a clean, organised closet makes you

feel good in the morning when getting ready for the day and makes it easier to see what you actually have to wear.

Here at Quad Services Cleaning we recommend following our basic guide to cleaning and organising your wardrobes:

– Take a step back and assess the situation. Make a tea, sit down and assess it visually. Having a think before you get started can clear the mind and allow you to focus on the task in hand.

– Remove everything from the wardrobes – shoes, clothes, bags, accessories – everything. Put all items on the bed or chair if possible. You want to see everything in front of you.

– Whilst the clothing is out, clean your closet! It is probably a little dusty in certain places, and vacuum on the floor. Make sure you clean the rails and above the closet.

– Sort all your clothes into piles of keep, donate and unsure. Then sort again to be sure.

– Consider getting new hangers for a fresh feel and lo0k.
