b2ap3_thumbnail_922755_571132132930768_240889415_n.jpgDid you know A-List can clean custom window treatments?

A client recently told me that "Drap It" does not recommend cleaning their window treatments, as issues may arise. Well, "Drap It" has no cleaning experience and they are wrong! I clean over 200 window treatments a year and have never had an issue.

I prefer to do them in-house as I can clean both sides along with out risking any damage from the vacuum pulling on them while they are hanging. I first measure each window treatment prior to taking them down. I also mark each panel so they don't get mixed up and also take pictures.

They are then taken back to my shop where the most care is taken and they are thoroughly cleaned, both front and back. They are hung to dry, folded after drying, and bagged. They are then delivered and rehung and any wrinkles are steamed out, leaving you a clean and crisp window treatment like the day they were installed.

I guarantee them not to shrink. If they can't be taken down, they can be done in place. As always, I'd be glad to stop by and evaluate the job prior and give a FREE quote.

The pleats of your sofa play a huge role in the esthetics of your upholstery. Often the pleats can take quite a beating from the grinding of shoes along them. From dirt to shoe polish, the cleaning process to get these clean can have to be quite aggressive. As most upholstery is made from natural textiles, there are a number of problems that can happen during the cleaning process. An inexperienced upholstery cleaner can leave them looking clean, yet shrunk, wrinkled or worse, even with some dye loss. All of these results are unacceptable to me. I spent the extra time to avoid any of these results and protect your upholstery from being ruined. Sometimes I can even correct the damage from a previous cleaner with a blocking process.

2013 Interior Design Trends
 
Here's two of the hottest new trends for 2013.
  • Colefax and Fowler's
    Bowood
    People are starting to get bored with plain neutral fabrics. Floral and pretty classics are making a come back!
  • Computer-Generated Fabrics
    Fashion designers have been showing off hip new trends with computer-generated photorealist fabrics. These are fun and soon to be the hottest new trend in the Designer Industry!
These these fabrics are typically a cotton chintz. I highly recommend having a protective finish applied, as cotton is absorbent and stains easily. You can always rely on A-List to help protect your investment!
