What is the Difference Between Dry Cleaning and Professional Wet Cleaning?
Lots of customers don’t realize that professional wet cleaning is even an option, but A Cleaner World has been doing it for years. Let’s do a little compare and contrast on Dry Cleaning versus Professional Wet Cleaning.
What is Professional Dry Cleaning?
Dry Cleaning is a process where your clothes are placed into a large machine and cleaned using solvent and special detergents. While the clothes do get wet, there is no water used in this process.
Benefits of Professional Dry Cleaning
- Dry Cleaning easily removes oil-based stains
- Because there is no water used in the cleaning process, fibers won’t swell reducing the chance for shrinkage and fading
- Gentle on natural fibers like wool and silk
- Provides a soft finish
- Solvents are recycled to minimize waste
What is Professional Wet Cleaning?
Professional Wet Cleaning isn’t like doing laundry at home; it’s a specialized process that requires specific training, equipment, and supplies, and each step of the process (there’s about 10) is critically important.
Benefits of Professional Wet Cleaning
- Cleans garments that cannot be dry cleaned like metallic shirts and garments with decorative embellishments
- Cleans delicate fabrics like silks and linens
- Easily removes water soluble stains
- Whites turn out whiter and colors turn out more vivid
- Process uses water and biodegradable soaps, which helps folks with skin sensitivities
- Removes smelly odors and stains from sweat, mildew, and urine
- Doesn’t create any waste
