There are many items in your home that you may skip over when you clean, such as baseboards, blinds, and draperies. These items may be challenging to clean, or you may not really be able to tell they are dirty. Eventually though, these items will need to be cleaned to keep them sanitary and looking their best. If you have drapes or curtains in your home, you may wonder when those items need to be cleaned. Here are a few of the top signs that it is time to clean your draperies:


1 | You Notice Dust and Cobwebs On Them

One of the tell-tale signs that it is time to clean your draperies is dust and cobwebs on your drapes. Sometimes you can look at your drapes up close and see a pile of dust on them or see the cobwebs forming in the corners. Other times, you may not notice just how dusty they are until you attempt to open or close them and see dust falling off of them. When you notice a collection of dust and/or cobwebs on your drapes, it is time to get them cleaned.


2 | If Your Drapes Are Discolored

Are your drapes discolored. Many people assume that their drapes are discolored due to exposure to sunlight. While this is sometimes the case, dirty drapes can also cause your drapes to look dingy or discolored. Cleaning the drapes will help you to see if they are still vibrant or whether it’s time to replace them.


3 | When Spot Cleaning Doesn't Work

Another sign that it’s time to clean your draperies is you see small stains or spots on your drapes. If you notice a small stain, you should attempt to spot clean the affected area. The easiest way to spot clean drapes is to mix warm water with a drop of a gentle liquid laundry detergent. Dab the mixture into the stain to help it to lift.


If spot cleaning does not lift the stain, a professional can deep clean the drapes, working to remove all of the spots and stains from them.
