Packing Curtains for Sending

  • Hooks and pins should be left in the curtains. If you have already taken them out, put them in a small bag and include them in the parcel
  • Curtains should be packed into card board boxes, not too tightly, or wrapped in plastic. Thermal curtains could be lightly powered with talcum powder on the thermal side (to prevent sticking) and folded lightly
  • Roman Blinds should be sent with the wooden rail,  blind intact, strings still in the blind. If the blinds are longer than 2.4m, normal couriers will not handle them. You can contact us by phone or email for assistance with these and we can arrange for our couriers to bring them to us
  • Packages can be up to 15kg per box or bag / no more than 2.4m long
  • Long parcels can be wrapped in plastic (heavier plastic is good). If there are bits that could be broken in transport wrap them well to protect them
  • Curtains sent to us by courier will be returned the same way unless otherwise arranged.
  • If required we can advise a price, by email, on receipt of the curtains and before cleaning. Any estimates given by phone or email prior to measuring are just that and confirmed prices can only be available after measuring. If you require this price confirmation please indicate with your other information.
  • There is a courier charge to pick items up via courier. The cost is charged to Curtain Clean and will be charged to your cleaning Invoice.
  • Please include a fact sheet with your information including contact numbers and email address. Please also include any information that you consider relevant to the curtains; e.g. Animal hair, wine or food spillage, previous spray cleaners, etc. Any information will assist us in the cleaning of the curtain.
