The Local Experts in Dry Cleaning Curtains
When you leave your curtains in our care, you can be sure that they are going to be in the safest possible hands. Being curtain makers as well as cleaners, we can advise on every aspect of care and maintenance of curtains, pelmets, swags, tails, festoon blinds, Austrian blinds, lace curtains, voile nets; the list is virtually limitless. We know how to handle even the most delicate of fabrics and will be able to have your curtains looking great once more, without sacrificing on their feel or lustre. That’s why we are the curtain cleaning company London homeowners always come back to.
We offer a full take down, clean and re-hang service on all curtains, overhead treatments and accessories. We can, where required, provide an on-site cleaning service for curtains, but we do recommend a full removal and dry clean for superior results. Your curtains will be safely and carefully transported to our cleaning premises, where we’ll use our extensive array of resources to clean them thoroughly. We’ll always collect and then deliver your curtains back to you at a time that is totally convenient for you.
Step by Step Curtain Dry Cleaning London
We follow a 15-step curtain cleaning process that includes the removal and measurement of curtains, pre-cleaning treatment and pre-spotting of any existing stains, thorough cleaning, hand finishing and folding before returning the curtains when they are re-hung and re-pleated – leaving you with beautifully cleaned and carefully reinstalled curtains.
We realise that your time is valuable so, when we do clean curtains in situ, our cleaning technicians call the client at approximately 8am on the appointed day to confirm arrival time. On completing the work, whether on site or a plant clean, we ask our clients to speak to our head office and confirm that they are delighted with the results before the technician leaves the premises. It’s this care and attention to detail that has made ours the best curtain cleaning services London has to offer.
Our Industry Partnerships
We are also proud to be the Industry Partner to the British Institute of Interior Design – an accolade we believe is reflective of the high standards that we maintain here at Pilgrim Payne. Pilgrim Payne® offers total peace of mind from a company whose history goes back to 1850. No other company can provide such a pedigree – and we work incredibly hard to maintain it.
Keep Your Curtains Looking Great
Once curtains have undergone stain removal, cleaning and are looking their best again it makes sense to keep them that way by applying a Stainshield fabric protector to resist rapid re-soiling and staining. If you have any questions about how to keep your curtains looking great, then we will be only too happy to answer them. Our expertise means that we can advise on all areas of curtain care. So after your curtains have been cleaned, you’ll be able to maintain that spotless finish for as long as possible.
Curtain Repairs and Curtain Making
In addition to our curtain cleaning service, we do also offer a curtain repair and a curtain making service. So whether your existing curtains need a little TLC, or you want a brand new, bespoke pair for your home, we will be able to help you.
"You are a genius! Our curtains look fantastic - and the pelmets and tassels so much better than I ever hoped. I can't thank you enough for all the time and attention and extra care you gave them. It did make a huge difference even from the way they looked."
"I wanted to take a moment to say 'Thank You' for making it possible to get my curtains hung the other day. Your technician was extremely experienced, professionally and frankly an all round nice 'Scot'!"
"Very pleased with the result of their cleaning my lounge curtains. French fabric, slightly faded 10 year old linen curtains which they cleaned beautifully and put back up resulting in them looking better than originally hung when new."
"Ian and his team came and rehung the curtains and pelmets. They all look GREAT and I can't thank you enough for all your kindness, attention, and skill - we hope for no further dramas, and to be able to sit in the room and enjoy the results of your labours."
"Today I had the pleasure of one of your employees visiting my house in Richmond. To my shame I did not catch his name. I thought it might have been on the estimate/pro forma but I cannot find it.
I just thought you would want to know that I cannot imagine having a friendlier or more knowledgable person. If your other staff are at this level you are a very lucky employer indeed."
"Gregory has done a great job for us. What a great guy!"
"Have used twice for carpet cleaning and once for upholstery cleaning. Very professional."
"I just wanted to let you know how happy I was with the work you recently did for us cleaning rugs and curtains. Your representative Ian was especially good, courteous, efficient, knowledgeable and helpful. I just wanted to pass that on to you, and hopefully you will let him know."
"A note to say thank you for doing such an impressive job in cleaning my bedroom curtains. They look amazing and your service was quick, courteous and efficient. I will definitely recommend you."
"I just wanted to thank you, and your colleagues, for the lovely blinds you made for us. I have been very impressed with all aspects of your service (the speed of your initial response, Gerry's knowledge and approach when he came to measure up and the speed with which you made and delivered the blinds) and we are delighted with the finished products. Please pass our thanks onto your colleagues."

"I just wanted to write to let you know how delighted I was with my curtains. They came back yesterday and two lovely gentlemen took great care in hanging them. The additional blue material has been so beautifully added. The workmanship is of such a high standard.
I wanted to express heartfelt thanks for your assistance and to all that worked on them.
It just leaves me to wish you and the company continued success. I am sure I will be using your services again."
We had a post builder sparkling clean and the service was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble, Maria and the team were extremely accommodating, and the house was spotless when they left. We look forward to bringing them onto many projects in the future.
Immaculate service. From booking, through estimating, to cleaning. They have knowledgeable employees who are thorough and care. Amazing results too. They do things correctly, the first time, with the right attitude (which I find isn't often the case here in London!).

My large white curtains and blinds were cleaned, washed and rehung to perfection during November 2020. When Ian, who was extremely helpful, professional, friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable, rehung these in several rooms, they were gleaming white, clean and fresh, just as though they were brand new again. Pilgrim Payne is the tops and Ian is a fine ambassador for such a superb company. MANY THANKS
I always have my curtains and upholstery cleaned by Pilgrim Payne. They do a fantastic job, are reliable and trustworthy. They are not cheap but are worth every penny. In particular I want to praise John who gets out stains that I didn't think were possible to remove. On his recent visit he transformed my 7-year-old white sofa so that it looked like a new purchase! And he magicked away two unsightly spots from a cream curtain. He is Mr Magic Man!!
Great customer service! And very skilled people! This time for my small studio I wanted REAL professional and skilled people to do my cream carpet. And I was most happy to have great service from Chris for estimates and Charlie who did a fabulous job making my carpet come back to life! Money well spent!
Jamie from Pilgrim Payne has just left, and all the rugs look new, thanks to his care and attention. A lovely friendly person to have in the house - and the dog thinks so too.
