We use 100% Organic Solvents and are one of a select handful of dry-cleaners in Bergen County offering Professional Wet Cleaning Services.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), wet cleaning is the most environmentally sensitive professional method of garment cleaning available. There is no use of hazardous chemicals. Wet cleaning does not generate hazardous waste. The process does not create air pollution and reduces the potential for water and soil contamination. The specialized detergents and conditioner used in the wet clean process are milder than home laundry products. All of the products are disposed of down the drain and easily handled by the local waste water treatment facility. In addition, the energy usage of wet cleaning is up to forty-six percent lower than that of dry cleaning. With the exception of increased use of water, wet cleaning is profoundly better for the environment than dry cleaning.
How it works:
Cleaning any fabric or garment requires the presence of four elements: solvent, detergents, agitation and, under most circumstances, heat. Professional wet cleaning perfectly balances these elements to create the optimal cleaning environment. The entire process is computer controlled based on the type of fabric being cleaned. Nontoxic detergents and conditioners are used to remove dirt and revitalize the fabric. The garments are agitated in the machine just enough to extract the dirt from the item, but not enough to alter the structure, size or color.
The items being cleaned are then transferred to a high-tech dryer that senses humidity as many as 400 times per minute. To prevent shrinkage, the dryer automatically stops once the prescribed level of moisture is reached. During drying, the conditioners that were added earlier are heat-activated to soften and freshen the garment.
Wet Cleaning is the #1 recommended process for washing any Dry-Clean only baby clothing.
