On receiving your garments, we check for loose threads, cracked or missing buttons, cuff links, spots, stains, falling hems and loose shoulder pads among other things. We can then advise on the necessary available restoration options. Our special and deluxe service options offer minor repairs for free.
Here we examine the garment labels for special instructions and fibre content. Should you have any special cleaning instructions, we note them here and take them into account later during the process.
We then classify garments according to their fabric type, color and degree of soiling and determine the best cleaning method for each category. Special tags are placed on each item of clothing by a garment expert with keen instructions to the cleaner.
Here, our qualified cleaners look for stains on the garment and treats them with a non-abrasive, fabric-friendly solvent to make the removal easier and more complete before dry cleaning.
After the garments are sorted and pre-treated, they are then put in a dry cleaning machine where all the major washing happens. We use Eco-friendly solvents and hypoallergenic detergents that make sure you don't react to your clothes when you wear them. They also smell really nice on your garments.
After dry cleaning the garment is inspected again for any lingering stains or inconsistencies in wash quality. Only then can it be pressed to restore its original shape, to give it a crisp appearance and overall improve the quality of the garment.
After the garment successfully passes all the check points in our dry cleaning process, it is then wrapped in protective packaging to ensure that it returns to you in the best condition possible. We endeavor to make your visit as quick and easy as possible without compromising quality and service.
We realize that you may need for some information that is not directly available on our website. Below are some quick solutions to the most common queries.
Dry cleaning uses fluids to remove soil and stains from fabric. In fact, the term “dry cleaning” is misleading; it is called dry cleaning because the fluid contains no water and does not penetrate the fibers as water does. Most machines today wash and dry the garments in the one continuous process known as “dry to dry”.
No. The dry cleaning process is carefully controlled by professional cleaners. Excessive shrinkage is usually caused by improper preshrinking by the manufacturer.
On the contrary, frequent cleaning prolongs the life of a garment. Not only do stains set with age, making the garment not wearable, but ground-in dirt and soil act as an abrasive, like sandpaper, causing rapid wear of fibers. Also, insects are attracted to soiled clothes and will cause further damage.
Time taken to dry clean your garments mainly dependent on the service type you are on and the kind of garment being dry cleaned. Our SPECIAL and DELUXE services have same day drop-and-pick provisions. Simply drop off your garments in the morning and pick them up clean and pressed in the evening. Heavier garments like duvets and drapery take a little bit longer.
