At AmCraft, we have a few suggestions on how to clean industrial curtains safely. Industrial Curtains are typically fabricated using 14oz or 18oz PVC vinyl in a matte or glossy finish. These heavy vinyl curtains are used in warehouses, autobody shops, technology data centers, food processing plants and other clean room applications. Depending on the requirement and environmental conditions in which they are used, over time industrial curtains collect debris, dust, mold and other contaminates on the surface, edges and track that can affect the cleanliness of the workspace.
For effective long use of your vinyl industrial curtain it is important to have a regular cleaning schedule and complete instructions on how to clean industrial curtains. We recommend that you clean the industrial curtains on a regular basis to prevent substance build up and mold that could contaminate the stitching and folds of the curtains. Simple Green is a product that is good for damp cloth cleaning or spot cleaning. It is also environmentally friendly.
Do NOT use a solvent based cleaner, as it could damage the integrity of the material. Rather, use alot of water and a cleaner that has a bleach ingredient. The use of a mild, non abrasive detergent will be necessary to cut through soil or any sort of mildly greasy or oily type film on the curtain. Test a small area first to make sure the cleaner you are using doesn’t discolor or ‘cloud’ the material. Using a cotton or microfiber cloth, wipe down the curtains in a consistent manner to make sure the entire curtain has been cleaned. Then use a clean, non-abrasive dry cloth to wipe down the cleaned area to remove water spots that could form and leave a residue.
Do NOT mix Bleach and Ammonia to use as a cleaner.
For safety purposes, wear eye protection and old clothing when cleaning your industrial curtains.
