What Is A European Style Dry Cleaner?

A dry cleaning service typically provides a number of services including cleaning, drying and pressing. Dry cleaning processes differ from you home laundry in that the clothes are washed using dry cleaning solvent rather than water. This type of full-service dry cleaning has three main aims:

  • Cleaning – the garment is treated for stains and machine washed in a solvent solution,
  • the solvent is removed by draining and spinning the garment.
  • Drying – the garments are dried using aeration and heat tumbling.
  • Finishing – the garments are machine or hand pressed.

European-style Dry Cleaners often offer a number of other services including:
