Here are some tips that can help you get the most from your cleaning dollar,
1. Bring a garment in for professional cleaning as soon as possible after staining occurs. Stains and soil left too long can be impossible to remove and will shorten the life of your garment.
2. Discuss any stains with us. Please be especially sure to point out lightcolored or invisible spills, such as those from soft drinks, fruit juices, or white wine.
3. Allow perfumes, lotions, deodorants, antiperspirants, and other toiletries to dry before you get dressed since these products can contain ingredients that affect some dyes.
4. Protect your garments, especially silks, from excessive perspiration, because it can cause many dyes to discolor.
5. Have matching pieces cleaned together, including bedspreads and drapes, so that any color loss will be uniform and pieces will still match.
6. Protect your garments from prolonged exposure to direct sunlight or strong artificial light. Keep in mind that even indoor lighting can affect some dyes.
7. Don't press stained or soiled clothes. The heat may set some stains.
8. If you get a stain on your clothing, try not to rub at the stain. This may cause irreversible damage the surface pigment. Instead, if you must try to minimize the visible stain, use a blotting technique.
9. Oil stains on laundry shirts and golf shirts are difficult to remove during laundry cycles. To eliminate oil and grease spot, the best to have the garment dry-cleaned. You can save a favorite shirt from recycle bin.
10. When having sofa cushions and pillows, it is best to remove the foam filling from inside if possible. Otherwise, the dense foam will not dry properly and my result in a residual order. Also, some batting may shift within the cushion and the result in a lumpy appearance.
Is it safe to wet clean a garment with "Dry Clean Only" care instructions?
In some cases, yes. When determining whether a garment can be safely wet cleaned, we will look at the fiber content, fabric construction, colorfastness, trims, and other components such as interfacings and linings.
Are suede and leather cleaned the same way as other fabrics?
No, Special procedures and additives are used on leathers to help retain their color and texture. Sometimes suedes and leather need refinishing or even dyeing to replace some color loss. It is not always possible to replace or match the original shades exactly.
Can a dry cleaner prevent dye bleeding or fading of a fabric?
No, the manufacturer must thoroughly test the dyes to make sure they are colorfast to both normal circumstances of intended use, as well as the suggested cleaning process on the care label.
Does frequent dry cleaning shorten the life of a garment?
To the contrary, dry cleaning keeps garments looking new, fresh, and crisp. In 100 years of textile research and testing, the International Fabricare Institute has never seen any indication of dry cleaning processes "wearing out" fibers or fabrics.
When a garment's label says "washable,"does this mean it cannot be drycleaned?
Not necessarily. The Federal Trade Commission's Care Label Rule states that only one suitable method of care must be on the label. We usually follow the care instructions, unless testing or experience reveals a risk or otherwise requested. If you want a care process other than stated on the label or if we decide an alternative is more viable, we may ask you to sign a waiver.
Should I store my clean garments in the plastic bags they are returned in?
We provide plastic bags to protect your clothes until you get them home. It is best to store garments uncovered or in fabric garment bags.
Laundering, how do you do it?
Professional laundering for shirts and other washable items is another process we use to keep your garments looking their best. We use precise, specialized detergents, additives, and finishes setting our care apart from everyday home laundering. Because of our expertise and the care we take, our laundering process enables us to produce consistently high quality washable garments, including shirts with collars and cuffs that are as clean and bright as they can be along with a crisp smooth finish.
What professional cleaning steps do you take?
Specialized garment care involves a variety of operations performed by trained technicians all aimed at achieving one goal: to impart a fresh and clean appearance to your garments. Here are just a few of the steps we take:
1. Checking labels for suggested care instructions and fiber content information.
2. Classifying the garment according to fabric type, color, degree of soiling, and cleaning process drycleaning, wet cleaning or laundering
What is Professional Care And Why is it Essential?
"You never get a second chance to make a good first impression." We take it seriously that you permit us the privilege of caring for your garments so that you always make a good first impression.
You may be surprised that keeping your clothes looking good is a lot more than one process. In fact, we employ a number of specialized techniques to impart that "like new" appearance to your garments. Professional cleaning care can be broken down into three categories: dry cleaning, wet cleaning, and laundering.
What is Dry Cleaning?
Dry cleaning uses a liquid solvent to remove soils and stains from fabric in specially designed machines.It is called "dry cleaning" because the solvent contains little or no water, but does have special additives to enhance cleaning and keep fabrics looking like new. Among the advantages of dry cleaning is its ability to dissolve greases and oils in a way that water cannot.
The dry cleaning process begins with the pretreatment of spots and stains using professional cleaning agents. The garments are then loaded into a machine resembling an oversized front-loading washer.
Once filled with solvent, it produces mechanical action to loosen embedded dirt. Throughout the cleaning process, the solvent is filtered or distilled to ensure its clarity. The garments are then dried in the same machine so they have no residual odor after cleaning.
What is Wet Cleaning?
Wet cleaning is the professional process of removing soils from garments and other textile items through the use of water.
The American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists' (AATCC) says the definition for Professional Wet Cleaning is: A process for cleaning sensitive textiles (e.g., wool, silk, rayon, linen) in water by professionals using special technology, detergents, and additives to minimize the potential for adverse effects. It is followed by appropriate drying and restorative finishing procedures.
