The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide To Dry-Cleaning
Here at Jarvis, we strive to make sure every item that we receive is returned as if brand new. As experts ourselves, we decided to make a guide as to what dry-cleaning is, when you need to dry-clean, and the different types of services usually offered and dry-cleaners.
What Exactly is Dry-Cleaning?
As the name implies, dry-cleaning is the act of cleaning your clothes without any soap or water. Instead, dry-cleaning is the process of cleaning your clothes with a solvent, usually known as perc (perchlorethylene). Your clothes are immersed and cleaned using the solvent which helps to remove oils, foods, dust, and other disgusting and unwanted particles. Though perc has been the gold standard for dry-cleaning, many operations are starting to switch to more eco-friendly methods that utilize organic solvents.
The general process of dry-cleaning:
Clothes are tagged and organized –> Inspected for stains, missing buttons etc. –> Dry-cleaned –> Post-spotting to remove any remaining stains –> Finishing (pressing, folding, and packaging)
Vancouverites – How Jarvis differs from regular dry-cleaning:
- When we tag your clothes, a barcode will enter into our system allowing you to track where your clothes are during our process, ensuring accountability and safety
- We come to you! One of the main benefits of dry-cleaning is saving yourself some time – Jarvis takes this to the next level. Use our app to place an order and we do the rest
- We take pictures of all items being serviced, which you can see from accessing your closet (in your account page)
- We use eco-friendly solvents while maintaining the best quality
- Each new customer is given a special and professional suit bag to be used for every order
Top Benefits of Dry-Cleaning
- Saves time – the process of doing laundry yourself is a time-killer! organizing clothes, cleaning, drying, ironing, and folding could take hours of your time
- Extra care – dry cleaners are not only experts in stain removal but they also have equipment and professional-grade chemicals that a regular Joe won’t have
- Added-services – pressing, ironing, and having your clothes wrapped in plastic are just some of the additional services to make your clothes as fresh a
- Special items – dry-cleaners can usually clean special items such as leather goods or carpets
When Do You Need to Dry-Clean?
As a general rule of thumb, any recent stains that are difficult to remove should be dry-cleaned as soon as possible. The solvents used in the process can help greatly to re
move the stains (but of course, not all stains can be removed!). It also depends on how often you use your clothes. Wearing a suit every other week may not need to be dry-cleaned that much. But if you notice stains or lingering odors, that is definitely a sign that your suit or dress is in need of some refreshments.
Read the tag! All of your clothes should come with a tag that specifies what type of fabric the clothes are made from and how it should be cleaned. If the clothing specifies that it requires dry-cleaning only then make sure it’s taken care of by a professional. This could save your clothes from damage or unnecessary wear and tear. Lastly, going to your local dry-cleaners(or using us!) is a time effective way to do your laundry. All dry-cleaners have the option of either dry-cleaning and laundering (doing your laundry the regular way), and you can save quite a bit of time by having the cleaning outsourced.
