Protect drapes under the Tucson sun
The Arizona sun is as harmful to your drapes as it is to your skin! The intense heat of the sun will weaken fibers, which can cause them to quickly disintegrate during the cleaning process and also cause brown spots to appear before or after cleaning.
Protect your drapes:
- Only install drapes with full lining and even interlining if made of silk or other delicate fabrics.
- Drapery manufactures allow for a 2”- 4” shrinkage; if you are having custom drapes made, make sure the fabric is preshrunk by cleaning before hemming.
- On windows with extreme sun exposure, consider exterior awnings or alternative interior window coverings such as blinds or shutters.
