Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS DRY CLEANING?
It is a process of cleaning clothes and textiles through using a chemical solvent that eliminates dirt and stains without damaging the garments. Dry cleaning is used for clothes that might shrink in hot water and for delicate fabrics such as silk and wool. Dry cleaning is particularly effective for washing suits and jackets as it will help clothes last longer and prevent colour from fading.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DRY CLEANING?
Delicate clothes that are made from natural fibres such as wools and silks have the potential to shrink and lose colour if washed in water. Through dry cleaning, these materials will have no after-effects as the solvents that are used are not harmful or damaging to any type of fabric.
Dry cleaning is very effective in eliminating grease, dirt, oils and stains from your clothes without damaging or shrinking them in any way. Dry cleaning can extend the life of your clothing.
