Cleaning

Proper care and cleaning increase the longevity and beauty of your window coverings. We offer two types of cleaning services to ensure your window treatments remain as beautiful as they were upon their installation.

If you are remodeling or repainting your room, we recommend you choose our offsite cleaning option. We will send over our installation professionals, remove your draperies, dry clean them, and reinstall them once your room’s renovation is completed.

If you prefer to have your window treatments cleaned whilst hung, we provide onsite cleaning with a machine that allows us not only to clean your draperies, but also to clean your roman shades, cornice boxes, upholstery, and area rugs!

Frequently Asked Questions About Cleaning Window Coverings:

← Frequently Asked Questions

Cleaning

Regular cleaning is key. Draperies need to be dry-cleaned and blinds/shutters can either be wiped down or vacuum-cleaned.

You can call us for dry-cleaning.


Depending of the fabric type we recommend a fabric treatment be cleaned every 3 years. Contact our office staff to schedule an appointment offsite or onsite cleaning with our installation professionals.


Can I Clean My Draperies?

Yes. After exposure to dust, cooking, tobacco smoke residues, and other pollutants, your drapes will need to be professionally and thoroughly cleaned. Dry cleaning is recommended for draperies and sheers though some people prefer to have sheers laundered rather than dry cleaned.

In either case, call us or set an appointment to take down, press, dry clean or launder, and professionally reinstall your draperies, sheers, and valances. Most draperies should be professionally cleaned after 2-3 years. Of course, environmental circumstances and other factors affect the recommended cleaning interval.


You should dust or vacuum your blinds with your regular household cleaning routine. You can deep clean your blinds once or twice per year.


Take your blinds outside and rest them on a carpet, towel or blanket. Use a soft brush and a bucket of water with a few drops of dish detergent and gently scrub from side to side. Make sure to wash both sides of your blinds. When done, rinse gently with a garden hose and hang to dry.


Vertical blinds are best cleaned when hanging. The easiest way to keep your vertical blinds clean is to vacuum them with a brush attachment during your regular cleaning routine. For fabric and vinyl blinds, you can use a dry sponge to remove any spots that the vacuum was unable to remove.


To keep your wood blinds clean, regularly dust or vacuum them. For deeper cleaning, wipe with a damp cloth. Stained finishes can be treated with lemon oil.


You can bring fabric blinds to a dry cleaner for professional cleaning.


Roller shades and vertical blinds don’t have a surface for dust, so are great low-maintenance options. Cellular shades are also a great options as many are anti-static and won’t attract dust.

"From scheduling our appointment to meeting with our designer, Bernadette, and the installer, Alfredo, we were met with professionalism and comforted in knowing we were dealing with people who knew what they were doing. Arrival times were well within the two-hour window. Bernadette shared her knowledge and expertise to help us choose the window treatments that best fit our needs and budget. We are so pleased with the final result and look forward to covering the rest of the window in our home."

"I would like to say that Galaxy Draperies was the best choice we've made. We recently purchased a new home and wanted to thank Bernadette for the amazing service she provided. I was referred to her by my sister, which also happened to purchase through you guys. Not only did Bernadette make me feel comfortable but it felt like I was working with family."

"Ordered Roman Shades for five windows. Designer who came to our home was nice and professional, Roman Shades arrived on time, the installation was handled by their installer who called and asked if he could come by earlier than our appointment, which was great. He was friendly, professional and did a great job! Highly recommend this company."
