Let SERVPRO clean your Drapes & Blinds

6/30/2021 (Permalink)

White drapes with a SERVPRO logo in the middle. SERVPRO of Plymouth / Long Lake / Medina can clean your drapes and blinds.

SERVPRO of Plymouth / Long Lake / Medina excels at cleaning fine fabrics and intricate pieces using wet or dry cleaning methods as required.  We carefully inspect and test fabrics to determine which of our System’s five cleaning methods is best suited to your fabrics.  We use state-of-the-art equipment designed specifically for cleaning fine fabrics.

When Should My Drapes Be Cleaned?

A good rule-of-thumb is to clean drapes approximately every two years.  A recent survey by SERVPRO disclosed that the average customer believes drapes should be cleaned when they look dirty.  Depending on your heating system, the amount of dust in the home, and other factors, drapes may not show soil for two to six years.  The oily atmospheric soil will gradually cause the fabric to deteriorate.  Often, direct sunlight is unjustly blamed for this.  You may triple the life of your draperies through professional cleaning, which is relatively inexpensive compared to replacement costs.

If you your drapes or blinds cleaned, please call SERVPRO of Plymouth / Long Lake / Medina at 763-557-7323.

SERVPRO uses Specialized Equipment

Two SERVPRO employees lifting a dehumidifier out of a van. SERVPRO uses state of the art equipment for your restoration needs.

The past few decades has seen a rapid advancement in the technology and techniques used in the restoration industry.  These advancements allow SERVPRO of Plymouth / Long lake / Medina Professionals to restore a property back to preloss condition quickly, reliably, and more effectively.

The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) sets practical standards for restoration and cleaning.  The IICRC S500 Water Damage Guide is a specific set of practical standards that incorporate the field of psychometry, which involves the manipulation of temperature and relative humidity to remove moisture and dry a property quickly and effectively.

Moisture Detection and Measurement Equipment:

Scientific drying principles rely upon specialized equipment to detect, measure, and monitor a property’s moisture levels.  Recent advances, like infrared cameras, can help us detect water through a wall, ceiling, or floor.

  • An infrared camera may be used to identify water location for thorough water removal.
  • Sensitive moisture detectors, hygrometers, and other meters measure the extent of moisture saturation.

Water Extraction Equipment:

Powerful extraction equipment speeds the drying process by removing the bulk of the water from your home or business.

  • Submersible and gas-powered pumps for continuous pumping of high-level water. 
  • Truck-mounted and portable extraction units perform efficient water removal.

Drying Equipment:

Industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers are needed to remove the remaining moisture from ceiling, walls, and floors of your home or business.  Proper drying helps to prevent swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.

  • High-speed air movers cause moisture to evaporate at a faster pace.
  • Industrial grade dehumidifiers pull the water vapor from the air.
