A tapestry decor is a wonderful way to decorate your home, be it a single tapestry in a prominent place in the home, or multiple tapestries throughout the home to impart the look and feel you want in your home. There is a grandeur and a presence that tapestry decor have, that no other type of home decor can bring. If you already have a tapestry decor in your house, then, there are many variables to take into account when deciding what methods to use for the care and cleaning of your tapestry decor. When it comes to tapestries, the one thing that does not vary is the importance of proper care and cleaning to your tapestry’s appearance and longevity. First and foremost, you must hang your tapestry decor correctly. Proper hanging techniques for tapestries distribute the fabric’s weight evenly over the tapestry.
Second and almost as important, you must clean your tapestry decor regularly and properly. Remove dust by vacuuming them with the drapery attachment at least twice a year. If you live in dusty areas or own pets, you may need to vacuum your tapestry every other week. Removing dust regularly is the best way to keep bigger pieces of dirt from adhering to your tapestry, so dust often. When you notice that it needs dusting, you have actually waited too long to dust a textile like a tapestry. Dust it about twice as often as you think it needs it, unless you are already a compulsive cleaner.
