- All drapery track hardware is cleaned and lubricated. (Any missing grommet hooks are replaced at no additional charge).
- All stains are pre-spotted to remove as many contaminates as possible without damaging the fabric fiber.
- All curtains are cleaned on both sides with a two-step process.
- All surface dust is removed using an industrial extractor.
- Curtains are then misted with a non-toxic drapery cleaner and then re-extracted to remove as much imbedded soil as possible that vacuuming alone will not dislodge.
- Application of Inspecta-Shield flame retardant is via spray method at a maximum of 15 p.s.i. Pressures higher than 25 p.s.i. have been found to destroy textile fibers. To ensure proper penetration, the flame retardant solution contains a wetting agent to carry the flame retardant compounds into the textile fibers.
- Our flame retardant is non-hygroscopic, does satisfy NFPA 701 Large Scale, is nontoxic and also bears the U.L. label for quality control. MSDS are provided for chemical used. The following toxicity compliance reports are available for your review upon request.

- N.Y. State Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code Article 15, part 1120, requires that fire retardant chemicals used for treating draperies, hangings, decorative materials etc. have been tested through an independent lab acceptable to the Secretary of the State and conforms to the state’s requirements.

Federal, State and Municipal Building Codes all have maintenance clauses pertaining to the flame retardancy of decorative materials when used in areas of public assembly or egress. Many City and States have established on-going flame retardant maintenance cycles, protocol and re-certification programs for fire retardant decorative materials whose cycles vary in length of time.
Any flame retardant or resistant decorative item that has had its fire resistant coating removed, compromised or has had a flammable coating (including but not limited to airborne dust and flammable paints) applied or adhered to its surface, will have negated its flammability rating and must be, at that point, maintained to certify its original flame retardant condition.
Over time, flammable dust alone will accumulate on these items and this coating must be removed. During this removal, there is no guarantee of how much flame retardancy is also removed from the item. The material must then be retreated again to meet code standards.
Certificates of Flame proofing Conformance are provided for items that meet applicable Code Standards. When Certificates of Flame proofing Conformance expire, the liabilities of the flame retardancy of those treated items are no longer the responsibility of the company originally issuing issuing the certificate.
