Dry cleaning is the process of removing soil and stains with solvent rather than water. It is called dry cleaning because the solvent contains little or no water, and thus does not cause swelling or shrinking fabric fibers.
We begin by carefully inspecting each garment, removing spots and stains with the use of steam or spotting agents. The garments are then loaded into the dry cleaning machine — they go in dry and come out dry. As the machine agitates the garments to loosen embedded dirt, the solvent evaporates and is captured for re-use. The dirt that was in the garments is captured in a filter, which is brushed clean after every load.
Clothes are inspected thoroughly and hung. Then they are sent to the finishing department where they are pressed and scrutinized during a final inspection. If no spots, stains, or rough finished areas are found, the clothes are bagged and hung on the conveyor, ready for you.
