Drapery Cleaning

Drapery Cleaning

Gator Clean can make cleaning your drapery on any window a breeze.

Reasons to clean your drapes:

Drapes and curtains are the one household item that often goes ignored when it comes to cleaning. Well, you may try to clean the drapes, but it is harder than it looks. You can dust and vacuum for hours and still have curtains that are saturated in dust and dander. They are too heavy to take down and sometimes very hard to move. Because of their weight and size, drapes cannot fit into a standard washing machine. Trying to drag them to a dry cleaner is another bad idea because they are so heavy and hard to move. That's why the best thing to do is call Gator Clean to clean your drapes professionally.

There are many benefits to cleaning drapes:

  • Removes dust and allergens buried in deep within the fabric
  • Saves you money by extending the life of your drapes!
  • Your drapes will look brand new again!
  • Removes pet hair and pet dander from the fabric and folds.
  • Cleans and removes cooking oils and smells.

Utilizing a professional drapery cleaning service will make sure that your drapes will not fade, shrink, and the seams and thread will not come unraveled. Any time you move into a new place, it is recommended that existing drapes and window treatments are professionally cleaned. The folds could be hiding dirt, dust, dander, and all the smells from the previous tenants!

What is involved with professional drapery cleaning?

You don't need to worry about anything! Gator Clean will do it all. You don't need to take them down or put them back up. They will not be damaged from excessive handling, and the original shape and style will stay the same. We are sure to clean the top treatments that collect dust and sometimes get overlooked when treatments are taken down and cleaned off-site. We pay special attention to box valances, jabot, swags, and various window treatments as well.

We clean drapes for homes, businesses, and churches. Contact Gator Clean for a free quote.

Danielle and Kelly were so great! They had my dryer vent with over 12 years of garbage cleaned out in under an hour. What a fire hazard that could’ve been. My dryer was no longer drying my laundry because the vent was completely blocked. Don’t be like me, Clean out your vents every year people!!

One of the best duct cleaning companies I've ever worked with. As a mold remediation professional I've called on them to help my personal clients many times. They are always on time, fairly priced and very professional. Their reliability and consistent results, is unlike any other I've worked with. Highly recommended. Thank you Gator Clean!

Taking on mold and mildew in your home.

Taking on mold and mildew in your home.

In damp, dark places, mold and mildew grow fast, and once it gains a foothold in your house, it takes a lot of work to eliminate it. So, how do you know if it's growing just beneath the surface of your carpet and on your tiles?

8 tips to keep your dryer vents unclogged.

8 tips to keep your dryer vents unclogged.

Here are eight practical tips to help your dryer vent stay clear longer:

1. Clean the lint screen. Pick lint off after every use. Handwash the screen occasionally to remove fabric softener residue (dry thoroughly before putting it back). Once monthly, use a skinny, long-handled brush to clear the lint trap, the cavity where the screen sits. (The first time I ever did this, to a 2-year-old dryer, I pulled out a softball-sized clump of dust.)

2. Clear around the dryer. Make sure the area under and behind your dryer is free of dust bunnies, animal hair, etc. Never stack your freshly washed clothes on top of the dryer.

3. Keep unhemmed or torn fabrics out of the dryer. Raw edges, such as those of quilt pieces or cleaning cloths, fray more easily, producing larger quantities of lint. Hem them first or line dry.

4. Avoid machine drying rubber or plastic. Bathmats, pet beds, running shoes, and other items containing rubber or plastic may deteriorate when machine dried. Particles can flake off, clogging your dryer vent.

5. Always air-dry dirty clothing or towels. If you dry, say, a sandy bathing suit, all that sand will end up in your dryer and its vent system. NOT a good idea. Air-dry soiled items instead.

6. Never cover the vent outlet with a screen. The vent flap should be sufficient to keep out small animals. A screen will trap some of the lint, which ought to be going outdoors.

7. Install a metal duct extender. If you haven't already, do yourself and your family a favor by installing a smooth metal duct extender (the piece that connects the dryer to the wall vent). Plastic and foil are easily crushed, restricting airflow ... not to mention that they're both flammable at high temperatures.

8. Buy a full-size dryer. Is it time to replace your dryer? Unless you're squeezed for space, purchase a full-size model, rather than a smaller, stackable one, and have it professionally installed. It will do a much better job of blowing air, as well as drying your laundry.
