Every item receives individual attention. We start by inspecting for stains. Each type of stain requires a different treatment. A coffee stain, for instance, may require up to three processes: one to remove the coffee, one to treat milk or cream, and another to address sugar. That's why our technicians use a wide range of tools to break down and remove stains without harming the fabric. Then, we choose the right cleaning method for each item. For garments with delicate beadwork or embroidery, we combine different cleaning methods to give you the best results.
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 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. Our 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 is a highly involved, water-based cleaning method, requiring special equipment and technicians trained in this style of garment care. That's just one reason most dry cleaners don't offer this service. While many types of clothing--cotton and wool garments for example--are good candidates for wet cleaning, not all items can be effectively cleaned and cared for in this manner. Our trained experts will evaluate your items individually to see if wet cleaning would be appropriate. 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. From start to custom-packaged finish, our goal is your total satisfaction.

Your gown, a unique treasure that cannot easily be replaced, deserves our expertise. After the wedding, one of our experts goes over the gown with you, inch by inch.

We then use up to three processes to treat your gown. This custom approach removes stains while retaining fabric texture and protecting beadwork and other decorations.Gown restoration

We recommend our Deep Cleaning Service at the end of the season to remove heavy soiling and to condition your garment for next season.

We can also repair your fur garments by replacing damaged skins. In addition, we offer seasonal fur storage to protect against temperature and humidity changes.

On the contrary, frequent cleaning prolongs the life of a garment. Not only do stains set with age, making the garment unwearable, but ground-in dirt and soil act as an abrasive, like sandpaper, causing rapid wear of fibers. Also, insects are attracted to soiled clothes and will cause additional damage.
Exposure to heat or the passage of time can cause stains from food, beverages, and other oily substances to oxidize and turn yellow or brown. Once stains become yellow or brown, they are much more difficult to treat and often cannot be removed. Some fabrics react negatively to common chemicals such as antiperspirant, perfume and aftershave. Applying these common chemicals before you dress can help avoid fabric breakdown or discoloration, but over a period of time damage can take place. Repeated contact to perspiration will eventually lead to permanent yellowing that is commonly seen on shirts and blouses.
