While many homeowners spend an adequate amount of time selecting the perfect curtain rod hardware for their home décor, many times not much time is spent on taking proper care of them.
As you may suspect, curtains are susceptible to collecting a significant amount of dirt and grime, making it essential that they are cleaned on a regular basis. Of course it is always important to understand the proper ways to maintain clean curtains in order to reduce any potential damage.

- Dry Cleaning vs. Wet Cleaning – Dry cleaning is probably the best method to rid your curtains of any dust or grime as opposed to an onsite process which only removes surface stains.
