When should you clean your curtains?

Robert Anderson from Curtain Clean Rotorua

Question; “when should I clean my curtains?”

If your curtains have gotten grubby with handling or your cat or dog has messed them up, something has caused them to be wet or they are getting mouldy, then time to have them cleaned.
Once the black mould is showing then that is a good time.
The more mould the more risk that it will be on the curtain fabric and the stain may not be removed.
The more mould the greater the health risk from mould spores being breathed in.

Should I leave them until after the winter?”

There is no need to leave them and cleaning them in the winter is actually more sensible.
Mould doesn’t normally grow in the cold.
Mould grows in warm, humid conditions so mould grows on your curtains during the warm summer.

It may not be visible to you as it is usually a yellow/ orange colour when alive.
When it gets cold ( as in the winter), it then goes into the spore form and that’s when you see it as a black, smelly mess on the curtains. Once it turns black it then releases more spores that will come alive and grow into more mould colonies once the curtains get warm again. Ideally, its best to remove these mould spores from your rooms before they spread. The spores may attach to other furnishings and the walls and of course float around in the air. Not healthy at all.
Cleaning the curtains in the winter and removing the mould actually helps stop the spores from spreading.
All curtains are sanitized to remove bacteria and viruses.

Curtain Clean are specialists in removing the mould from your curtains.
We are open again for curtain cleaning. Drop your curtains into Rotorua Chemdry or use our door to door service.

Quarantine Hotels

Carole & Wayne from Pukehangi - Mangakakahi

I don't like seeing this plastered over Neighbourly: Get them out of Rotorua. Get Rotorua taken off quarantine list. These hotels are in the city centre and one close to the Lakefront. And Eat Street etc. Lakes District (Rotorua/Taupo District Health Board area) safest area in New Zealand. There will be domestic tourists wanting to visit. As they will want to go to Queenstown and Wanaka.....And talk about protests, marches..Let our Kiwi's come home and not have this kinda of talk going on !!!
