Q. Do curtains shrink in the dry cleaning process?

A. Yes. Not all curtains shrink in the dry cleaning process, but a large number do. The face fabric of the curtain tends to shrink, and the lining doesnt, this makes the curtain linings become visible once hung back up at the window.

When curtain fabric is produced, it is very tense, dry cleaning can relax that tension. If this occurs it is essential that the tension be put back into the fabric otherwise your curtains will show signs of shrinkage.

At Browns, we are specialist curtain cleaners, curtains make up around 60% of our business. A very high percentage of the curtains we clean are returned without any shrinkage at all. This is due to our unique curtain stretching frame.

After cleaning, your curtains are pressed in the normal way whilst at the same time are being examined for signs of shrinkage. If we think your curtains have shrunk, and they fit the criteria for this process, we will then put them in our frame where they will be gently pulled back to the correct length.
