The holidays are a time of entertaining guests and having family and friends stay at your house. In anticipation of their arrival, you’re likely starting to get your house in order.
On your to-do list may even be household items that you want clean but are a pain to wash on your own – table linens, rugs, curtains, drapes, and bedspreads just to name a few.
By coming to McMahan Cleaners in Denver, we’ll professionally dry clean linens and more, saving you time and stress while getting you ready for the holiday rush. Here’s a quick rundown.
During the holidays, it’s time to put away the paper napkins and break out the cloth ones along with that matching tablecloth. You’ll probably find them crumpled up in the back of a sideboard or closet, so let us take care of refreshing them. While you can probably throw them in the washer and dryer, ensuring they’re stain-free and fresh-pressed will make a big impression with guests (like a judgy mother-in-law). Winning the holidays starts with a fabulous table, and we’re here to help.
A good number of bedspreads and comforters are just too big to throw in your washing machine. If you try, your washer may stop mid-cycle. Sometimes, the overload will cause your wash machine to throw out an error code. It can be annoying to try to wash such overly large items at home. Bring them to your local dry cleaner, such as McMahan Cleaners, for clean bedding and no fuss.
It is important to alert your dry cleaning professional to any rips, tears, or weak areas in the fabric. Doing so will allow your dry cleaner can give it special attention so that any rips or tears are attended to properly. You can even have it mended for an additional fee.
Many rugs must be dry cleaned. Handmade, antique, and Oriental rugs are best handled by a dry cleaning professional. Some smaller throw rugs will hold up fine being washed at home. Consult the label if you are not sure which process to use. By allowing us to professionally dry clean your rugs, we can help to preserve their colors and keep them looking new.
Draperies are generally heavier than your average curtains. Additionally, they are often lined. Over time, draperies collect a great deal of dirt, pollen, fumes, bacteria, and smoke. For a truly clean house, be sure to professionally clean your drapes annually. Dry cleaning not only removes all the dirt and oils but helps your drapes look new and last longer.
A final note. It is important to pay attention to the care instructions for all your household fabrics. It is also too easy to throw specialty fabrics, such as silk, in the washing machine and ruin them. It can be a huge disappointment to ruin your heirloom table runner or expensive bedding.
When you dry clean household items for the holidays, you’ll ensure a more stress-free season of hosting family, friends and loved ones. So, bring it all to McMahan Cleaners in Denver where we will professionally dry clean your fabrics and get them ready for a happy holiday season.
