Eco Friendly Products
Our dry cleaning process is eco-friendly in that we do not use the industry standard chemical known as “perc” or perchloroethylene. Perc is a cancer causing agent and controlled by the EPA. It is not harmful to people wearing the clothes, but the solution itself can contaminate a site if not carefully handled. We use hydrocarbons which are safer for the environment, less toxic and may be tolerated better by people with asthma or allergies.
Dry Cleaning Facts
Dry cleaning is a wet process that is water free. Dry cleaning is favored by garment manufacturers, particularly because it will not harm the fabric or the construction of the item. Dry cleaning favors the removal of grease & oil based stains whereas wet cleaning / washing favors water based stains. For this reason we should always be advised as to the nature of the stain.
Clothes should always be washed or dry cleaned regularly. Modern methods are not harmful to clothes, stains should always be treated as soon as possible; even though a stain may seem to disappear it is still there. These stains will “develop” over time and may well “set” and not be possible to remove at a later stage.
Stains should never be rubbed, this can damage the fibers, and whilst not necessarily noticeable at the time of the “accident”, after cleaning may well result in color or pile damage. Only blot a stain, preferably with clean white absorbent tissue and have it cleaned as soon as possible. Never put white wine on red wine or salt on a wine stain, this will only make the dry cleaner’s job more difficult and may result in the stain not being removed.
Always try to point out any stains when bringing the garment for cleaning, and where possible identify the stain so that the correct treatment can be applied. Help Us To Help You.
