Im­prove your fam­ily’s health

Central Leader - - LIFESTYLE & LEISURE -

If your New Year’s res­o­lu­tion for 2013 was to cre­ate a health­ier life­style for your­self, well done! How­ever, it is im­por­tant to make sure you don’t fo­cus only on ob­vi­ous changes such as con­trol­ling your diet and ex­er­cise.

One less ob­vi­ous, but very ef­fec­tive, way to im­prove your health and well-be­ing is to have your cur­tains pro­fes­sion­ally cleaned to re­move the un­healthy mould, mildew and dust buildup that ac­cu­mu­lates dur­ing the harsh New Zealand win­ters.

The good news is that sum­mer is the ideal sea­son for cur­tain clean­ing – as the sunny weather means you don’t need your cur­tains and drapes to keep the warmth in your home.

Bruce and Kerry Tay­lor, the own­ers of Tex­tile Clean­ing Ser­vices, have years of ex­pe­ri­ence in clean­ing cur­tains, drapes and blinds – us­ing their unique, gen­tle clean­ing process to re­move harm­ful mould, mildew, dirt and even the musty smell from damp cur­tains.

‘‘If your cur­tains or blinds are look­ing a lit­tle worse for wear, for­get about buy­ing new ones. Sim­ply drop them off to us and we’ll get them look­ing great again,’’ Kerry says.

You can rest as­sured that your cur­tains are in safe hands, as their clean­ing process doesn’t in­volve hot water, dry clean­ing flu­ids, wash­ing machines, tum­ble dri­ers or ag­i­ta­tors which can cause pilling or tear­ing of del­i­cate fab­rics.

Tex­tile Clean­ing Ser­vices can even work with dif­fi­cult fab­rics such as linen, vel­vet, taffeta and hemp, as well as fab­ric cur­tains, ther­mal back­ings and ro­man or aus­trian blinds.

Cus­tomers are given the op­tion of ei­ther bring­ing their cur­tains into the Glen­field store (a def­i­nite cost saver), or they can re­quest a free on-site in­spec­tion and no-obli­ga­tion quote for tak­ing down, clean­ing and re­hang­ing. If you are in a hurry, ask about their ex­press pick-up ser­vice which boasts an im­pres­sive two-day turn­around.

To main­tain the pri­vacy of your home Tex­tile Clean­ing Ser­vices can pro­vide tem­po­rary cur­tains for you to use while yours are be­ing cleaned.

Clean­ing ex­perts: Bruce and Kerry Tay­lor will have your cur­tains look­ing as good as new.
