So you've heard of dry cleaning but do you know what this really is? Traditional dry cleaning involves the use of chlorinated solvent chemicals: perchloroethylene or tetrachloroethylene. Both have a distinctive chemical odor. Perchloroethylene is referred to as PERC and is classified as carcinogenic to humans.
What makes our Cleaning Eco-Friendly?
Our Eco-Friendly Dry Cleaning (Wet cleaning) is a professional, modern, and environmentally friendly alternative to dry cleaning that can care for delicate fabrics that a dry cleaning machine can't; enabling your favourite items to look fresh and last longer.
Since being developed in 1991 by German companies; Miele and Kreussler, Wet Cleaning has established itself as the economical and environmentally friendly alternative to dry cleaning.
It was designed with one defining goal in mind, to create a process for cleaning that could safely and successfully clean and protect all garments and fibres. It did this with a biodegradable detergent as good to fabrics as it was to the environment.
Why it's Better
Wet Cleaning is a process that enables professional cleaners to safely handle ‘Dry Clean Only’ items, without them coming in to contact with any dry cleaning chemicals and neurotoxins, such as perchloroethylene. By using water and a special biodegradable detergent, your clothes will stay softer for longer and will be much better for your skin, as well as the environment.
How it Works
By controlling a range of factors, such as detergent dosing levels, drum rotation rhythms and temperature to a high degree of accuracy, your clothes are safely cleaned, without any chemical smells. Utilising a high extraction cycle, the majority of any moisture remaining is removed from your garments. Finished with an optimised spin cycle that measures the amount of residual moisture, your clothes are protected from over drying, whilst saving energy.
Our wet cleaning system provides perfect protection for the fabric and for the environment. The washing cycle uses 30% less water than conventional machines and can clean at as little as 20oc, reducing energy consumption by 50%.
The system uses no solvents, so customers instantly notice the fresh smell and soft feel. Colours are brighter and retain their original look to customers are happier too!
