Laundering and dry cleaning are both processes designed to cleanse clothes and other articles. Laundering is a water-based cleaning process that most often utilizes an in-home washer and dryer combination and common soap or detergent; dry cleaning, much like its name suggests, uses no water but is a comprehensive process that cleans the clothing just as effectively, if not, more effectively than the laundering method. While both processes have their purposes, in general, dry cleaning is better for clothes, especially delicate items, than conventional washing in a machine.
When the label says “Dry Clean Only”, people generally follow suit, but dry cleaning has several distinct advantages for cleaning clothes when compared to a washing machine.
Here are some the benefits of dry cleaning over machine/hand washing:
- Less abrasive than machine washing and the solvent used is easy on your clothes. Comparatively, dry cleaning is considered a soft washing process, which helps protect the garments being cleaned.
- No water is used, so it won’t run colors and shrink fabric. Dry cleaning rarely causes shrinking of delicate fabrics and maintains the color and texture of fabric better than the conventional method of washing.
- Deep Cleaning—Dry cleaning has a distinctive ability to dissolve oil and grease in garments that is difficult to do with traditional washing.
- Saves you time – When removed from a washer and dryer, clothes often come out looking rumpled and wrinkled – in need of further ironing and treatment. With professional dry cleaning, there will be no more ironing, folding, and hanging stages.
Viking Cleaners will also help you properly care for valuable garments like bridal gowns, school and military uniforms, your favorite sports jerseys, and even various cultural clothing.
In addition, Viking Cleaners can take care of other home items including, leather, suede, and rugs, along with comforters, tablecloths, sheets, drapes, rugs, and more!
Viking Cleaners also has an in-house tailor and offers restoration to your fire and water damaged textiles.
