PROFESSIONAL DRY CLEANING

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. NATURAL FIBERS, SUCH AS WOOL, DRY CLEAN BEAUTIFULLY, BUT WHEN WASHED IN WATER, CAN SHRINK AND DISTORT. SILKS ARE GENERALLY MORE COLOR AND FINISH STABLE WHEN DRY CLEANED, ALTHOUGH ONE MUST BE VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE TO PROPERLY SPOT CLEAN THESE GARMENTS. SYNTHETIC FIBERS SUCH AS POLYESTER ALSO RESPOND WELL TO DRY CLEANING, AS OILY SPOTS WILL COME OUT EASILY. PROPER DRY CLEANING HELPS TO RETURN YOUR GARMENTS TO A ‘LIKE-NEW’ CONDITION.

PROFESSIONAL DRY CLEANING INVOLVES MANY DIFFERENT OPERATIONS, ALL PERFORMED BY SKILLED PEOPLE, AND DESIGNED TO GIVE YOUR GARMENTS A FRESH, CLEAN APPEARANCE. ALL MERRY GO ROUND STAFF ARE HIGHLY TRAINED IN THEIR AREA OF EXPERTISE TO PROPERLY IDENTIFY, CLEAN AND/OR FINISH ALL GARMENTS, AND TO EXERCISE A NUMBER OF SPECIAL PROCEDURES WHEN HANDLING YOUR ITEMS.

WET CLEANING

SOMETIMES, WET CLEANING MIGHT BE THE BEST METHOD FOR YOUR GARMENT, BASED ON ON THE CARE INSTRUCTIONS AND OUR PROFESSIONAL EXPERTISE. AS WITH THE DRY CLEANING PROCESS, WET CLEANING STARTS WITH THE PRE-TREATMENT OF SPOTS AND STAINS USING A VARIETY OF SPECIALIZED CLEANING AGENTS. WET CLEANING IS THE PROFESSIONAL PROCESS OF REMOVING SOILS FROM YOUR GARMENTS AND OTHER TEXTILE ITEMS THROUGH THE USE OF WATER AND ADDITIVES WHILE USING PROPER PRECAUTIONS TO PREVENT SHRINKAGE, LOSS OF COLOR, AND FABRIC DISTORTION.
