How Often Should You Get Your Curtains Washed?

Curtains and drapes attract dust and absorb moisture as well as odours over time. Whether you have £15 Ikea curtains on your windows or expensive lace ones, they need to be cleaned by either you or Curtain Cleaning Services to keep them in a good usable condition. However, most people when they spring clean their homes tend to ignore curtains and drapes making them one of the dirtiest household items.

Curtains are left just hanging in there while rugs are deep cleaned, floors are mopped and walls are wiped. Mould can form on curtains especially in damp winter weather which can cause allergies and breathing problems in the inhabitants of the house or living space. This can be a health hazard. This is why services offerd by launderettes include quality curtain cleaning and variable other services.

How often you wash your curtains or get them washed/dry cleaned professionally depends on a number of factors. What type of curtain cleaning services should you get and When? We will discuss them in this blog post along with a step by step guide on how to wash and clean your curtains at home.

Why Should You Wash Your Curtains?

Washing and cleaning your curtains is very important for a number of reasons which we have highlighted below:


The number one culprit hiding amongst the folds of your curtains is dust. This is particularly true if you live in an urban area or on a busy main road with lots of traffic going past every day. Dust and debris gets trapped in the curtains which act as a filter preventing it from coming inside the house. Clean your curtains to keep your dust filter intact!


Live in a country with lots of regular rainfall and wintery weather? Mould can form on curtains which do not get cleaned often giving rise to breathing problems such as asthma. Make sure its removed completely from the curtains before hanging them back.

Pollen and Airborne Particles

Cigarette smoke, pollen and pet hair are just some of the stuff which can get trapped in curtains. If yellowing curtains, stale air and musty odour puts you off, make sure to give your curtains a regular shake up and a deep clean.


Living by the seaside and waking up to the tangy salty breeze and sea gulls everyday? Salty sea air deposits on curtains and makes a coating o them. The lining gets affected as well so it is best to frequently clean your curtains.
