Industrial drapery cleaning is almost like having your carpets cleaned. Just like you would have your carpets cleaned to enhance the look of your carpets, you would do the same thing with your drapes. The only difference is that you would not get your drapes cleaned as often as you would your carpet. Your carpet can handle the wear and tear of the cleaning a little bit more than your drapes. You want to keep your local drapes clean and beautiful with out messing up or weakening the fabric. Drapes are something like curtains only thicker and made with different materials. This is one of the reasons you have to have them cleaned by a local industrial cleaner.There are some curtains that you can machine wash. However, drapes can not go in the washing machine at all. If you were to proceed to wash your drapes in the washing machine, it would more than likely ruin them. There are local industrial cleaners; you can take your drapes into their service center and get your drapes cleaned. There are also local industrial cleaners who you can set a appointment with to come out to your house and clean your drapes. This would be up to you which way you prefer.
