Certain household items can be quite a task to launder at home. To be sure your rugs, tapestries, curtains, draperies, and bedspreads are fully and deeply cleaned, Pure Green Dry Cleaning offers professional cleaning services of all of these items. We use our years of experience in cleaning household items to keep your rugs, drapes, bedspreads, and other items looking brand new. We would like to tell you more about why dry cleaning benefits a few of these household items.


Since your bedspread or comforter is the focal point of your bedroom, freshening it up and cleaning it every few months improves the look of your entire room. Most bedspreads and comforters can be too large to wash in your home washer and dryer, so bringing your bed covers to Pure Green Dry Cleaning to let us launder for you saves you from overloading your laundry appliances. Many people like to clean their bedspreads and comforters once a season; however, if you use a duvet cover, you can go for two to three years without cleaning your comforter or bedspread. One tip we do have to offer for when you bring your bedspreads and comforters to us for cleaning: if there are rips, tears, and other weak areas in the fabric, please alert us to these. These rips and tears can get bigger during the cleaning process due to how heavy the bedding becomes when immersed in solvent or water. As for blankets, you should never attempt to wash and dry wool blankets at home and always take these blankets to Pure Green Dry Cleaning.


According to Better Homes and Gardens, you should always have Oriental, handmade, hand-knotted, and antique rugs professionally dry cleaned. As for other types of area rugs, it is recommended to consult the care label to see if the rug is machine washable, spot clean only, or dry clean only. Dry clean only rugs usually are not colorfast. This means dry cleaning is necessary to keep these rugs looking new and not faded.


Heavier than curtains, draperies are usually lined and reach all the way to the floor. From day to day, drapery curtains collect a lot of dirt, including dust, oil, pollution, smoke, pollen, heating fumes, and bacteria. To truly have a clean house, it is essential to professionally dry clean your drapes once a year. Dry cleaning will best remove the oils and dirt from your draperies to keep them lasting longer and looking new. It is also best to have your window treatments professionally dry cleaned if they have suffered from smoke damage or have large stains.

The most important thing to remember when cleaning household items is to check the care labels and take them seriously. If you ignore dry clean only labels, your bedspreads, rugs, and draperies can suffer shrinkage, color loss, and dullness. To best take care of these items, you should always follow their care instructions.
