We all have those regular cleaning routines that we do to keep our home tidy and the people who live there healthy. We all dust our furniture, clean the carpets and mop the kitchen and bathroom floors. But, have you ever stopped to think about when you last cleaned your curtains? More importantly, do you know how dirty your curtains actually are? Dirty curtains can harm your health, so it’s important to clean them on a regular basis.
But what if they don’t look dirty?
Looks can be deceiving. Your curtains may look clean but you’d be surprised to know that they are the perfect breeding ground for bugs and bacteria. Curtains need just as much cleaning attention as your carpets and upholstery. If your curtains have never been cleaned, now is the time to do so.
Curtains are dust magnets, as any dust in the room will navigate towards them and will be trapped in the fibres. This is a potential health hazard for those members of the family who suffer from dust and mite allergies or asthma.
Mould and mildew
If you have curtains in your kitchen or bathroom, then you need to look out for them growing mould and mildew due to the wet or damp environment. Once again, this is not good for your health, particularly if you are an older person, a child, or have any breathing difficulties.

So, if you do have dirty curtains, what’s the best way to clean them? This can be difficult when they are dry clean only or if you need them washed and dried quickly.
