What Should I Expect From a Dry Cleaner?

w/e 09/08/21

4. Dresses

The expectation you have of a professional service is exceptionally important, as it's this that dictates your satisfaction with the final result. What you pay may often have an influence on what you expect but there are standards that any service shouldn't fall below.

This is the fourth in the series and this week we'll look at what it should be reasonably expected when you dry cleaning a Dress, no matter what the price. We divide the service into two types, the level of cleaning and what constitutes good finishing, reasonable expectations including:

Your reasonable expectations should include:

Stains

  • Any stain noted should be removed or there should be a note saying it's still there
  • There should not be any spotting damage.
  • You should discuss individual stains with the cleaner to get their view of potential outcomes.
  • If there are risks involved in removing any stain agree with the cleaner the risk you are prepared for them to take before cleaning.

Colour

  • Whites should remain white
  • There should be no general graying of colours.
  • Heavily worn areas may change colour after cleaning, due to grime being removed from the fabric.

Accessories

  • Delicate Buttons should have been wrapped or removed during cleaning.
  • Belts should come back in the same condition as they went in (some will not be cleanable).
  • Not all belts will be cleanable - if not they may end up a different colour from the cleaned garment after cleaning.

Odour

  • There should be no excessive smell of solvent remaining on your clothes.
  • If you do not want any perfume odours adde to your dress then be sure you let the cleaner know at the counter.

We're often asked by visitors to the site to find certain products used by professionals and to supply them through DrClean. Perhaps the most requested is anything that might clean an iron easily - and now we've found the perfect answer. Ez-Off is made in the USA and is designed for professionals to clean their commercial irons.

Here's how it's used;

  • To clean equipment squeeze a liberal amount of Ez-Off onto a heavy cotton cloth (an old terry towel works best).
  • While the equipment is HOT rub the soiled metal pressing or ironing surface with circular motions. After removing all the soil simply wipe with the clean end of the cloth.
  • If you want to keep equipment clean, slick and operating smoothly, clean with Ez-Off daily. This will ensure maximum speed with minimum interuptions.
