I clean all window Treatments, including Luminettes, Silhouettes, Valances & Drapes
Injection / Extraction method
I have been certified to clean all Hunter Douglas Window Treatments using our Injection / Extraction Method. I can also clean Draperies, Valances, Cornice Boards and much more just ask. I guarantee using this method there will be no shrinkage or damage to your window treatments. This is done On Site, same day in most all cases. I can Dry Clean or Wet clean.
How Ultrasonic Cleaning Works
Ultrasonic Cleaning: A revolution in cleaning technology
Highly efficient and effective cleaning is a requirement in many industries. Manufacturers clean components at various stages in their manufacturing process. Medical professionals need deep penetrating cleaning action that does not damagetheir precision instruments. Aircraft maintenance crews need to ensure parts are thoroughly scoured without any surface damage to avoid any degradation in flight performance.
In addition, the compaction of geometries has led to the need for deep probing cleansing action to reach tight spaces that may not be easily and effectively reachable otherwise. Plus, the phasing out of environmentally hostile chlorofluorocarbons globally has eliminated the legal (and moral) viability of many cleaning processes. More importantly though, critical factors like performance and warranty requirements lay a greater stress on the need for a high quality, predictable, repeatable, cleaning outcome.
Ultrasonic cleaning is a technology that uses high frequency sound waves (ultrasonic: above the range of human hearing) to agitate an aqueous or organic medium (cleaning chemistry) that in turn acts on contaminants adhering to substrates like metals, plastics, glass, rubber and ceramics. Contaminants can be dust, dirt, oil, pigments, grease, polishing compounds, flux agents, fingerprints, soot wax and mold release agents, biological soil like blood, and so on.
Ultrasonic Cavitation: The active cleaning mechanism
An ultrasonic cleaner consists of an ultrasound generator along with special transducers mounted on the bottom of a liquid-filled stainless steel bath. The generator and transducer combo create alternating waves of compression and expansion in the liquid at extremely high speeds, usually between 25 and 130 kHz.
Numerous gas bubbles are formed and expand in the liquid during the expansion phase. This is a low-pressure phase that in essence “cold boils” the water. The water vapor in the bubble condenses rapidly creating a vacuum-filled ‘cavity’.
In the compression phase, the great amount of pressure exerted on the newly expanded bubble leads to a sudden implosion of the bubble. The liquid molecules collide releasing a vast amount of impact energy that rapidly increases the local temperature producing a high-energy liquid stream that collides with the surface of the object being cleaned. This collision agitates contaminants adhering to the surface, effectively and efficiently dislodging them at micron levels.
