STEP 1: Inspection & Quote

Our cleaning consultant comes out to your home for a free-of-charge, no-obligation inspection. We will:

  • Inspect your window treatments for soiling, stains, sun damage, and shrinkage.

  • Measure length, make drawings, and take pictures (on intricate treatments).
  • Give you an exact quote.
  • Remove the window treatments properly. (We prefer that your treatments be left up so we can thoroughly inspect the drapery and all related hardware).
  • Carefully package them for transporting

Many of today’s window treatments need to be partially dismantled before cleaning. We have the expertise to ensure that your treatments will be reassembled properly. This comes from many years of making draperies and window treatments.


STEP 2: Cleaning


Your treatments will be professionally assessed as to which cleaning system to use. We will pre-spot and pre-treat as necessary.


STEP 3: Pressing and Finishing

Our highly skilled cleaning and finishing technicians use years of experience to put a finish on your fabrics that makes them look and feel like new.


STEP 4: Packaged for Delivery

We carefully package all goods to protect against creases and wrinkles.


Draperies[1]

Drapery and Dry Cleaning

  • Our custom dry-cleaning machine is programmed for thorough yet gentle cleaning. It also puts sizing into the fabrics to give them that new feel.
  • Our solvent is highly maintained to ensure that whites stay white.

Sheers and Washable Goods

  • Our computer-controlled washer is also programmed for thorough yet gentle cleaning. The process also adds sizing into the material, an agent that helps preserve the shape and form.
  • Instead of using a dryer, which can cause damage to sensitive fabrics, we drip dry all washable fabrics.

Blinds and Shades

  • Our unique equipment has been designed to ensure that your shades and blinds retain their shape during cleaning and drying and that they still receive a thorough cleaning.

Expert Re-Hanging Available


For an additional charge, our expert professionally rehangs your window treatments. We use a steamer where necessary and will make your treatments look beautiful. Many clients say our finishing makes them hang even better than when they were first installed.

Benefit:With proper maintenance, your window coverings will last longer, look brighter and have a crisp, new look. Allergens will be removed making your home a healthier environment.

Chet’s is the authority on window coverings. We have many systems to safely clean all window treatments. However, it is our dedicated staff that ensures that your treatments look beautiful for years to come.


Repairs

We perform minor repairs at no cost. If repairs are more extensive we will call with a quote. We perform many repairs and carry common installation hardware, blind, and shade parts on our truck. If we can’t repair it, we have resources to get most repairs done.


Alterations

We have the resources to alter many window treatments. Just ask and we will let you know if it is possible.


Sun Damage

We cannot guarantee against sun damage. We thoroughly inspect for weak and deteriorated fibers prior to cleaning and will inform you of the risk. Thermal and laminated fabrics are prone to flaking and peeling.
