The Importance of Cleaning your Bedspreads, Comforters and Draperies

Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations we fully understand that creating the perfect ambiance and grace in your home’s living space was a well thought out plan that took a great deal of time and money. Whether you are the person who chooses to have their home furnishings custom made or you have chosen off the shelf furnishings from your favorite store, the fact is that all household items such as bedspreads and draperies should be thoroughly cleaned at least twice per year in order to extend their life expectancy and keep them looking fresh and new. That is where the professionals here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations come in.


Our team of experts has restored abundant draperies for our valued clients. Rendering proper professional care, draperies of nearly every type of fabric typically have a life expectancy of three to five years. When you bring your draperies into our dry cleaners we first take ample time to examine them carefully and evaluate them to determine what type of conditions they were exposed to in your home before we can undertake appropriate cleaning procedures.

As we all know, sunlight can easily weaken and discolor the fabrics on your draperies and exposure to moisture and excessive humidity from rain, leaks, or window condensation can cause dye bleeding in draperies that can sometimes be near to impossible to remove. Further, draperies with insulated backings may become degraded and the coatings come off while the combined effects of light, smoke, heat, moisture and any other types of soils can actually cause your draperies to become discolored permanently.

Once we examine your draperies and discover our concerns, we will discuss them with our clients and the possible results that may occur after dry cleaning. Though we take the greatest precautions, there are times when existing damage becomes evident and unable to remove or repair. For this reason, we ask for customer consent prior to undertaking any specific dry cleaning services that may be requested.


More often than not people will bring their bedspreads and comforters to their dry cleaners simply because of their size. However, there are many customers who bring their bedspreads and comforters to us because the label on them reads ‘professional care is best.’ When dry cleaning your bedspreads and comforters we strongly suggest you have all the matching and coordinating linen items cleaned at the same time. By doing so you ensure that any color changes, though they would be minimal at best, are uniform. When our technicians receive bedspreads, comforters and their accessories they double check all information that is available with regard to care instructions and give close attention to the type and construction of the fabric. Once they are comfortable with their examination and confident about cleaning procedures they will begin our top of the line cleaning process.
