What is Wet Cleaning?

Wet cleaning uses fresh water and a specially formulated detergent in a computer controlled process that regulates temperature, PH levels, moisture content and agitation to clean all types of garments, resulting in superbly clean and safe quality cleaning services.

What you may not know about Dry Cleaning

The vast majority of dry cleaners use petroleum-based solvents, either "Perchloroethylene" known as "Perc" or "Hydro Carbon" that leave harmful chemicals in your garments. "Per" is a volatile organic compound(VOC) that poses a health risk to humans. Although "Hydro Carbon" is less risky than "Perc", it is also a petroleum based solvent that carries all the environmental and quality concerns of petroleum.
