What is Professional Garment Care
and why is it Essential?

You never get a second chance to make a good first impression. We take it seriously that you permit us the privilege of caring for your garments so that you always make a good first impression.

You may be surprised that keeping your clothes looking good is a lot more than one process. In fact, we employ a number of specialized techniques to give a “like new” appearance to your garments. Professional Garment Care can be broken down into three categories: Dry Cleaning, Laundering and Wet Cleaning.

Dry Cleaning

Dry Cleaning uses a liquid solvent to remove soils and stains from fabric in specially designed machines. 

It is called “dry cleaning” because the solvent contains little to no water, but does have special additives to enhance cleaning and keep fabrics looking like new. Among the advantages of dry cleaning is its ability to dissolve greases and oils in a way that water cannot.

The dry cleaning process begins with the pretreatment of spots and stains using professional cleaning agents. The garments are then loaded into a machine resembling an oversized front-loading washer. Once filled with solvent, it produces mechanical action to loosen embedded dirt. Throughout the cleaning process, the solvent is filtered and distilled to ensure its clarity. The garments are then dried in the same machine so they have no residual odor after cleaning.

Wet Cleaning

Wet cleaning is the professional process of removing soils from garments and other textile items through the use of water.  The American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) definition for Professional Wet Cleaning is: A process for cleaning sensitive textiles such as wool, silk and linen in water by professionals using special technology, detergents and additives to minimize the potential for adverse effects.  It is followed by appropriate drying and restorative finishing procedures. 


Professional laundering for shirts and other washable items is another process we use to keep your garments looking their best.  We use precise, specialized detergents, additives and finishes setting our care apart from everyday home laundering.  Because of our expertise and the care we take, our laundering process enables us to produce consistently high quality washable garments, including shirts with collars and cuffs that are clean and bright as they can be along with a crisp smooth finish.

Professional Cleaning Steps

Specialized garment care involves a variety of operations performed by our trained garment technicians – all aimed at achieving one goal: to make your garments as fresh and clean as possible!  Here are just a few of the steps we take:

  • Checking labels for suggested care instructions and fiber content information.

  • Classifying the garment according to fabric type, color, degree of soiling, and cleaning process – dry cleaning, wet cleaning or laundering.

  • Removing spots and stains using special equipment, special stain removal agents, and water.

  • Reapplying any sizing, water repellant and other finishes when necessary and possible.

  • Finishing the garment on professional steam finishing equipment to restore its original shape and appearance.

  • Replacing missing or damaged buttons and performing minor repairs.

  • Packaging the garment neatly in a protective wrapping.

Along with the above procedures, we offer a variety of other specialized services.  Just ask us for information about any of your garment or household item cleaning needs.
