WET CLEANING
Wet cleaning, developed in 1991 and not to be confused with laundry processing, is a non-toxic, environmentally safe alternative to dry cleaning. The one element wet cleaning and laundry have in common is water. There, the similarly ends. We use a computer-controlled washing machine, with special programs, and specially designed biodegradable soaps and conditioners, to insure a great result.

Driven by the health and environmental concerns associated with traditional drycleaning solvents, recent advances in wetcleaning technology, garment care, and textile manufacturing have resulted in the emergence of commercial wetcleaning as a viable and eco-friendly cleaning technology. Dry Cleaning Station can wetclean many garments that typically have required drycleaning, such as silks, woolens, and linens.

Often, we find that wet cleaning a garment with a care label that calls for dry cleaning-only, produces better results than dry cleaning. We typically determine which process to use by assessing fabric, construction and the types of stains or dirt we find on a garment or household item. In general, water-soluble stains are naturally removed better in water.

Our wet cleaning machine programs include processes for wedding dresses, down comforters, household items, and general wetcleaning using either cold or warm water.
