It’s that time of year! The time for Spring cleaning! The decluttering of your home, the deep cleaning of all the nooks and crannies.
Curtains and Blinds are great for keeping the heat out of your home. Thankfully, as well as being extremely useful, they are also easily kept in working order by staying up to date with cleaning and maintenance.
Blinds are extremely easy to clean. You can wipe off any dust by using just a clean cloth!
While you are cleaning them, check the tracks, fittings, and cords.
Do your blinds need repairing, here at Rian’s Window Treatments we offer repairs on:
• Restringing of blinds
• Vertical blind sat clips
• Continuous cord loops or chain for vertical blinds
• Cloth tape for wood blinds or venetians.
Plus, we have lots of spare parts. If you’re unsure of the type of blind you have, or the repair it needs – take a photo and email it to us!
Cleaning your curtains doesn’t have to be hard! With different types of fabrics, comes different ways to clean and care for them.
For cotton curtains, the washing machine in your home is perfectly fine to use! Ensure you remove each fitting and hook. Wash on a delicate cycle in cold water and hang outside (if possible) to dry in the natural sun.
For more delicate curtains – like lace, soaking in a tub of cold water and dishwashing detergent is the way to go.
If you have heavier curtains throughout your home, then it’s best to take these ones to a dry cleaner. That way they can be sure to get a good proper clean.
If your curtain has any rips, tears or snags, or has any missing or damaged hooks, then a repair is what you may need. We can repair your curtains to restore their function and beauty.
Tracks are usually the most common part of a window to be neglected. If yours are looking a bit worse for wear, don’t worry – you’re not the only one!
If a clean is all they need, a great way to do it is to first grab a vacuum cleaner with a window track attachment (if you have one) – if not, a toothbrush and warm water is a great way to get into all the crevices.
If you need a repair, on a cracked or broken window track, call us at Rian’s Window Treatments for all your blind, curtain and track repairs plus spare parts too.
Our service areas are South of Perth including Rockingham, Baldivis, Safety Bay, Mandurah, Pinjarra and surrounding areas right through to Bunbury.

A pretty room with a poorly hung curtain is like a beautiful woman wearing too short pants! It can make everything inside the room look less attractive and make you feel uncomfortable as well. Just looking at it can give a bad impression. Are your curtains hanging wrongly?
You may think that you have done it properly until you are sit comfortably in your favourite chair and you feel there is something wrong with your window.
When it comes to hanging them, the rule is to keep your ceiling looking as high as possible. Maybe this is the main reason why you continue to make the same mistake?
Avoiding curtains that are too short for your windows is simple,once you know these 3 correct ways to hang your curtains:
1. The slight float. If you want to hang your curtains without any breaks at all, but don’t want it to touch the floor, this is for you. Simply, hang them less than an inch above the floor. It doesn’t quite touch the floor.
2. The puddle. Want to give your room that romantic feel? This type of hanging allows your curtains to puddle all over the floor, creating a feminine, old world look. It is just perfect, if your curtain is a high quality fabric – it will be sure to make a statement!
3. The kiss. It barely touches the floor and can look gorgeous in any space. However, this might be harder to pull off as you have to measure your curtain accurately. When measuring, consider some tiny break/bend in your curtain when it is open.
Now that you know how to hang your curtains flawlessly, there’s no reason for excuses! For a lovely selection of curtains, contact Rian’s Window Treatments. We have an extensive variety of curtains to suit your taste. Ring us today for a free quote.
It’s summer in the West Australian and along with the other chores that come with summer cleaning, your curtains are in need of some TLC too. No matter what material they are made from, the location they hang in or the style they are, curtains are much like any other feature in your home that can gather dust, hair and other debris. Over time, this can make your curtains look worn and even start to stain or accumulate pests or mould. Excess dust can aggravate allergies and asthma and affect the indoor air quality in your home.
Whilst there are many options to clean your curtains, different fabrics require different cleaning methods. You need to identify the material your curtains are made of to ensure you’re using the correct cleaning products and procedure.
Save this one for the dry cleaner. The bigger industrial machines mean less chance of damage to the material and they have several options, such as steam cleaning and stain removal techniques, that are far more efficient. You’ve invested significantly in heavier, lined drapes so a professional clean will protect your investment the best way.
The delicate material of these curtains means it can snag or rip easily when wet, so a sink filled with cold water and some dishwashing detergent is best. Wash one curtain at a time by soaking ten minutes and swirling gently to remove any debris or heavy dirt. Rinse again in cold water to remove the soap. To make your sheer or lace curtains feel extra crisp, you can pop 1 cup of Epsom salts to the cold water sink but do not return it to rinse the salts off.
Let the curtains drip dry from your shower rod or laundry line and hang them once fully dry.
For plain cotton curtains, your washing machine will be fine. Remove all the hooks and fittings and shake outdoors if possible. Wash two panels at a time on the delicate cycle in your washing machine using the cold setting. If you can, hang outside in the sunshine or dry on a low-heat setting. If you are using the dryer, immediately remove from the dryer to prevent wrinkles and rehang, or if you have dried them on the line, press with a warm iron to remove wrinkles and rehang.
