Despite its name, dry cleaning is a process that uses liquids other than water to clean clothes, bedding, jackets, and other types of fabrics and products.
At times, exposure to water can damage fabrics – namely wool, leather, silk and other delicates. Similarly, washing machines can cause irreversible damage to those fabrics as well, and loosen or damage buttons, laces, sequins and other embellishments.
Advantages of Dry Cleaning
Dry cleaning is not only convenient but it also uses a variety of solvents to clean fabrics and help preserve their longevity.
Other advantages include:
- Removing tough stains
- Preserving delicate fabrics
- Professional service with attention to detail
- Saving time
Our Dry Cleaning Process
1. Garment Tagging
First, each item is tagged with an identification number. This is to ensure the items are returned to the correct owner.
2. Garment Inspection
Each item is inspected for items left in pockets, rips, tears, holes, damages. This is to ensure liability for us.
3. Pre-treatment for Stains
Each item is inspected for stains in order to address during the solvent-cleaning process. It’s helpful to let the cleaners know what caused the stains to get the best results from the stain removal process.
4. Machine Dry Cleaning
Clothes are loaded into a machine and cleaned with a water-free chemical solvent. The clothes are then drained of the solvent – which is then filtered and recycled to rinse with a fresh solvent to remove any last remains of soil.
5. Post Spotting
Sometimes, stains are not fully removed during the cleaning process. These are then treated with steam, water or even a vacuum in order to remove remaining traces.
The garment then becomes ready to wear after steaming, pressing, reattaching buttons, and completing repairs. Then they are returned to you in a much more desirable state than when you brought them in!
