Professional Wet Cleaning
What is Wet Cleaning?
Professional Wet Cleaning is the process of using water and specialized equipment and detergents to clean “dry clean only” garments.
Wet cleaning is a non-toxic, environmentally safe alternative to dry cleaning. It utilizes computer-controlled wet clean system, biodegradable soaps and conditioners, and finishes the drying process by using special moisture sensitive dryers. Wet cleaning is not the same as laundry, and is perfect for using on any garment labeled "dry clean only", such as: silk, cashmere, woolens, swede, and other fine delicates.
Why Choose Wet Cleaning? Traditional dry cleaners utilize perchloroethylene, a toxic solvent commonly known as “perc.” This chemical is used throughout many cycles of dry cleaning, and can be very harmful to the environment. It is 1.5 times heavier than water, and requires extreme temperatures to be completely removed from one’s clothing.
Dry cleaners that generically advertise not using perc for ‘greener,’ ‘organic,’ or ‘natural’ solvents, are usually referring to the chemical DF2000. Although less toxic than perc, this is a chemical normally found in gasoline for automobiles. Wet cleaning on the other hand, uses no chemicals, and is different because it refers to a truly Eco-Friendly way of cleaning one’s garments and textiles. The reason to choose a wet-cleaning system over dry-cleaning is obvious. It’s safer. For you, for me, for our children and the environment.
