Kalamazoo Dry Cleaning Benefits: Why Dry Clean?

As we’re all readjusting our wardrobes to prepare for the upcoming summer, the time to decide which clothing items we’d like to resurrect from last season is once again upon us. Though, getting your clothes in shape for the new season is often easier said than done. Each piece of clothing has its own ideal cleaning process, and giving each piece of clothing the attention it deserves can often feel like an impossible task. But here at Clean Getaway, Kalamazoo, we strive to make the process of clothing care as easy and streamlined as possible while ensuring the best clean possible. In this blog post, we’ll be detailing the benefits that dry cleaning and coin laundry have to offer for anyone preparing for the next season change.

Dry Cleaning: How Does it Work?

If you’re not familiar with the exact process of dry cleaning, a quick explanation will help show where the benefits of dry cleaning come from. Contrary to popular belief, dry cleaning is it far from a dry process. The name “dry” cleaning comes from the fact that the cleaning process does not use any water in cleaning a garment. Instead, a solvent is infused into the clothing and coupled with soap before being machine dried. Through this process, we are able to effectively clean garments that are susceptible to damage from water, such as leather, silk and cotton, without worrying about ruining the material. After this, we do a “spot check,” where we scan the garment for any remaining stains or damage that the dry cleaning process didn’t fix and we treat them. Finally, we steam out wrinkles and make repairs to the garment before giving it to you!

Advantages of Dry Cleaning

As mentioned before, the process of dry cleaning allows us to clean your laundry without posing the risk of water damage to materials sensitive to it. Though, there are other reasons to get your clothes dry cleaned. Dry cleaning is particularly useful for large items that conventional and even some industrial washers cannot give proper care and attention to, such as drapes and large rugs. Dry cleaning is also particularly effective at getting persistent odors and stains out of garments when water-washing has proven ineffective.
