  • drapery cleaning

    Question: We own and Interior Decorating / Carpet Cleaning business on Port Elizabeth, South Africa. We have recently had several enquiries re. the cleaning of curtains "on site." We have therefor decided to add curtain cleaning to our activities.

    Could you please supply us with information pertaining to the available equipment, as well as a description of the cleaning process.

    Yours truly,

    Nick Mulder

    Answer: You could invest in a professional drapery cleaning machine that clean clean with either water or solvent cleaning compounds or you can just use a pump up sprayer and suck off the cleaning agent with a drapery tool. These tools are available with and without spray jets and trigger levers in 4 and 6" wide. You can see the tool does not use a vacuum slot rather drilled holes so the fabric does not get suck into the drapery.

    Please not dry cleaning fluid does not dissolve sugar or salt based stains which is almost every type of drink and food mark as well as body oils (because of the salt) Here is a test: Place a sugar cube in glass of water and a sugar cube in a glass of dry cleaning fluid. Please note the sugar cube will dissolve in the water and will not in the dry cleaning fluid. To remove most marks you will have to use both water and solvent but you must do so evenly. Another words after you prevacuum, then prespray the dry cleaner and then post apply the neutral based cleaner right on top and suck off. Always force everything dry with air movement. Always color fast and crock test each color with all the cleaner and spotter you plan on using as well as have every customer sign a release statement adsoving you from damage.

    dear all,
    why do we have to search the recovery factor for cleaning validation? and when do we use that recovery factor? im still not clear bout that.
    and can you please give me an example for that.

      "recovery factor" is not used in this article. We do not know what you are talking about. Please re-phrase the question.

        Thanks for providing such good details about curtain cleaning. But what should we do for regular cleaning of curtains and carpets?
