Special fluids and solvents are used in a dry cleaning machine to remove soil and stains from fabric. It is called “dry cleaning” because the fluid contains little or no water and does not penetrate and weaken the fibers in the way water does. Advantages include the ability to dissolve greases and oils in a way that soap and water cannot.  Proper dry cleaning helps to return your garments to a ‘like-new’ condition.

Items such as dress shirts, fine bed and table linen, etc. are pre-treated and washed with additives, soap and water before being pressed. These items are pressed wet with laundry pressing equipment using high pressure and high heat to produce the fine, crisp finish. The finished laundry garments are done with your choice of light, medium, heavy, or no starch. Shirts are usually hung on hangers or put in a box, whichever you prefer.

It is just simple laundry, like t-shirts, jeans, socks, towels, sheets, etc. that is just washed, dried and folded. It’s the laundry you can do at home, but if you’re too busy or have better things to do with your time, we’ll do it for you. The whites and colors are separated before washing. Each item is then nicely folded and packaged.

We clean and freshen up your household items, such as blankets, duvets, comforters, couch covers, drapery and curtains.

We have an expert off-site tailor. He does alterations and mends just about anything... From hemming your pants or replacing a pocket, to lining your jacket.

We also use an off-site Leather Specialist.  The cleaning and finishing itself is not done the same as fabric cleaning. Being animal skins, they react to cleaning methods differently and require different solvents and equipment in the cleaning process as well as special handling techniques in the finishing process.
