Dust and dirt in fabrics weaken the fibers and shorten the life of your draperies and window coverings. Dusting and vacuuming will help. But, maintaining your window coverings requires more than just dusting and vacuuming. They also need to be professionally cleaned on a regular basis in order to maintain their appearance. Global Carpet is here to help. We'll clean your draperies, blinds and window coverings where they hang, and we guarantee no shrinkage, no damage and no loss of resins or flame retardant.

In addition to cleaning your drapery, we'll also clean your blinds and other window coverings. Like draperies, dust buildup will quickly ruin window decor, and vacuuming alone isn't enough. Blinds and other window coverings also need to be cleaned professionally on a regular basis to maintain their appearance. For blinds and shades, regular professional deep cleaning will also increase the life of the working mechanisms, so they operate efficiently for years to come.

We clean window coverings made of all sorts of materials, including fabrics, metal, vinyl, composites and wood in any configuration, including:
Global Carpet's in-home, on-site drapery cleaning service specializes in the cleaning, deodorizing and spot cleaning of your San Diego draperies, San Diego window coverings and San Diego window treatments. Our technician will begin cleaning by carefully vacuuming the coverings with a HEPA filter system designed to remove allergens and dust. We then use out state-of-the-art injection/extraction system and non-toxic chemicals or ultrasonic cleaning system to safely and effectively clean your window coverings where they hang. To further protect your window coverings, we can also apply soil guards, flame retardants, deodorants and dust repellants after we finish cleaning. Call Global Carpet at (619) 366-6218 for more information.
Injection/extraction and ultrasonic are the methods recommended by drapery and window covering manufacturers, including HunterDouglas, one of the largest window decor manufacturers in the United States. Injection/extraction is very effective for hand cleaning fine draperies because it does not incorporate the use of heat, the major cause of drapery shrinkage. Injection/extraction also does not involve agitation, making it the gentlest form of cleaning for more fragile fabrics. Ultrasonic cleaning uses the cavitation energy of millions of exploding bubbles created by high frequency sound waves passing through a cleaning solution in specially designed tanks. Both methods effectively remove dirt, grease, food, smoke, hairspray, pollen, mold, allergens, insects and other indoor contaminants.
Most window coverings are cleaned using water-based methods. But specialty Roman shades and some room darkening shades that cannot be cleaned using water-based methods, due to becoming damaged or voiding manufacturer warranties, are dry cleaned using environmentally friendly solvents.
How often should window coverings be cleaned?
How often you should have your window coverings cleaned professionally depends on where they are located and how much sunlight they receive. Window treatments in households or offices with smokers or pets or ones located near uptake or heating vents and those close to windows that are opened frequently require more frequently cleanings (every 1 to 2 years). Window treatments in guest rooms and other less frequently used rooms with minimal sunligh exposure will require less frequent cleaning (typically every 2 to 4 years).
Constant sun exposure will weaken most fabric fibers and cause color fading or streaking. Solar window tinting film, drapery linings and the use of shades or blinds behind the drapes will help increase the life of fabric window treatments in a sunny window.
