Q: What is Wet Cleaning?

A: Wet cleaning is a professional, modern and environmentally friendly alternative to dry cleaning that can care for delicate fabrics that a dry cleaning machine can't - enabling your favourite items to look fresh and last longer. First developed in Germany, wet cleaning has established itself as the economical and environmentally friendly alternative to dry cleaning. Wet cleaning was designed with one defining goal in mind, to create a process for cleaning that could safely and successfully clean and protect all garments and fibres. It does this with a biodegradable detergent as good to fabrics as it is to the environment.

Q: Why is Wet Cleaning Better?

A: Wet cleaning is a process that enables professional cleaners to safely handle “Dry Clean Only” items without them coming in to contact with any harmful and hazardous dry cleaning chemicals such as PERC (Perchloroethylene). By using water and a specialist biodegradable detergent, your clothes will stay softer for longer and will be much better for your skin as well as the environment.

Q: How Does Wet Cleaning Work?

A: By controlling a range of factors, such as detergent dosing levels, drum rotation rhythms and temperature to a high degree of accuracy, your clothes are safely cleaned, without any chemical smells. Utilising a high extraction cycle, the majority of any moisture remaining is removed from your garments. Finished with an optimised spin cycle that measures the amount of residual moisture, your clothes are protected from over drying, whilst saving energy.

Q: Why Use Wet Cleaning?

A: Whether it's a wedding dress or UGG Boots, wet cleaning is a safe and effective alternative to dry cleaning that guarantees professional results. You may not have considered using a wet cleaning service, but by using water immersion, biodegradable detergents and avoiding harmful, hazardous and toxic dry cleaning chemicals, your favourite items can still get a professional clean and will not only come out feeling and looking brand new, but the gentle wash will ensure they last longer.

Q: What Are the Benefits of Wet Cleaning?

A: It’s gentle, clean and won't damage your clothes. In a survey of 1,000 women, 1 in 5 admitted they previously had an item spoiled due to the dry cleaning process and 83% actively avoided dry cleaning their items. With wet cleaning, your clothes will come out softer and last longer due to the absence of harmful chemicals and the advanced technology used gently cleans and cushions fabrics, ensuring they're not damaged during the cycle.

Wet cleaning is also kind to your skin as it uses no harmful chemicals and solvents, making it ideal for those with sensitive skin. Wet cleaning also ensures your clothes and garments come back as soft as the day you bought them and will stay fresh and last longer as wet cleaning provides a deep, effective and gentle clean that dry cleaning just can't match.

An extensive range of fabrics can be cleaned. The wet cleaning process allows you to not only wash those items classed as “Dry Clean Only”, but also wash traditional laundry items as well. This means you can get all of your important garments professionally cleaned, without them coming in to contact with harsh chemicals or neurotoxins. Thanks to wet cleaning, you won’t be put off buying items with a “Dry Clean Only” label.

  • Suits

Q: What are the Environmental Advantages of Wet Cleaning?

A: With first class water, energy efficiency and biodegradable detergents, wet cleaning is a truly “Green” alternative to dry cleaning that’s environmentally friendly while not compromising on a flawless standard of cleaning. As wet cleaning does not use strong and hazardous chemicals it can be assumed that this compromises on the quality of the wash. With wet cleaning this is not true, our biodegradable detergents which are not harmful to the environment combined with our state of the technology and equipment provides an excellent clean which is kind to you and your clothes.

Q: Is Wet Cleaning Expensive?

A: NO! Although wet cleaning provides you with far superior results than conventional dry cleaning wet cleaning is no dearer than dry cleaning.
