Dry cleaning removes any dirt, oil and debris form the garment, including body oils, food oils and wax. With a pre-treatment, dry cleaning can also remove tougher stains such as coffee and perspiration. Once your garments have been cleaned, they are finished. This process makes the garment look as good as new and corrects any mishaps such as missing buttons or crooked pleats.
Just about any quality fabric should be dry-cleaned. Satin, silk, chiffon, tulle, wool, acetate, linen, organza, 4-ply polyester and any fabrics lined in leather or suede should all be dry cleaned. Also, any clothing with embellishments such as fancy beadwork, rhinestones or sequins should be professionally cleaned. You may also check the labels of your clothing for proper care.
Your garments are closely inspected prior to cleaning. Pockets are emptied, buttons are protected, and zippers are checked. Stains are pre-treated prior to being treated with the dry cleaning solution, steam and vacuumed. After cleaning, your garments are finished and pressed. The final touches include replacing missing buttons, small repairs, and packaging.
Hard to remove stains such as food, drink, and perspiration typically set in within 48 hours. It is best to bring your garments in for a cleaning as soon as possible to avoid yellowing, discoloration, and weakening of the fabric.
It is extremely important to have your garments cleaned prior to placing them in storage. Even if clothing appears to be clean, invisible stains and debris such as perfume, body oil, food stains, etc. can discolor and ruin fabric.
Your vintage wedding gown can be transformed into a gleaming shade of white, provided that the material is not too dry and brittle to endure the necessary treatments.
Quite the opposite. Regular dry cleaning prolongs the life of your clothing by removing stains and dirt that would have otherwise become embedded in your clothing and eroded the fabric.
I brought my clothes in for cleaning and they now have spots that were not there before. What happened?
Among a dry cleaner's worst enemies are "invisible stains" like spray from a grapefruit or apple, hair spray or perfume. It is normally these types of stains that consumers see on freshly cleaned garments, making them protest, "That wasn't there when I gave it to you!" "Invisible" stains such as fruit juice, hairspray or cologne can reveal themselves when exposed to heat during processing. These stains can not be removed by dry cleaning alone, a specialized treatment is necessary. If you are aware of such a stain on one of your garments, please inform your technician so they may remove the potential discoloration before the stain sets.
