Let’s face it. No matter what industry you work in where professional business attire is essential, clean and crisp clothing is a must. These garments require special handling and treatment. You can toss them into a washing machine or attempt handwashing, but you will not achieve the same quality and care that good dry-cleaning delivers. In fact, you can destroy your clothing quickly and permanently.
- The Dreaded Shrinkage
This has to be one of the most common and frustrating issues that can develop when you avoid the dry cleaners with lined garments.
Our experts have tons of stories about how the washing machine not only added fresh wrinkles but even worse, kept the suit’s lining as it were but shrank the entire suit so that the lining was now hanging and visible, OMG!
Here’s a tip: Dry cleaning does not cause garments to shrink.
- Some Average Results
When dry cleaning is something you choose not to do for your business clothing, and you try washing them at home, you’ll end up with average results.
Trying to lift stubborn stains or spots is one thing and also being able to maintain a garment’s softness, color and luster is another challenge.
Choose a professional dry cleaner. They get the job done efficiently.
- Oops–Shiny Errors
We’re sure you’ve seen this one on someone’s business outfit at least once. It’s called a “shiny suit” and occurs after someone hard presses the garment at home.
It often happens in wool suits where heat is applied too intensely, and the fabric oils create shiny, odd-looking spots.
- Time-Wasted Effort
Doing your laundry at home for your towels, bed linens, and casual clothing is enough of a chore, and adding business attire to that routine wastes precious time.
Business pieces need special treatment. Drop off your garments, and allow the pros to do the rest.
- Those Missed Details
When you wash expensive business clothing by hand or toss these pieces into the washing machine, you can’t get to all the extra things that need attention.
A professional dry cleaner has an eye for detail. This expert inspects every item for the tiniest imperfections. A dry cleaning service will de-pill and de-lint your garments.
- Poor Fabric Maintenance
Certain materials cannot be home-laundered, and that’s that. You’ll slowly destroy a fabric’s integrity if you don’t bring it to a dry cleaner.
Silk, cotton voile, wool, velvet, suede, and leather are fabrics that need dry cleaning care.
- Customer Service Loss
Dry cleaning today’s never been easier. Many companies offer both pick-up and delivery services, and usually, these are free.
Choosing dry cleaning can give you peace of mind about not ruining your business attire. You’ll save on money and energy. How’s that for customer service?
When you visit the dry cleaners, you can often find convenient, extra services. Do you need clothing alterations/tailoring at the last minute? Hey, it happens.
They’ve got you covered.
- Wasted Precious H20
Today, most dry cleaning services are eco-friendly and doing their part to save the planet.
A washing machine can waste plenty, considering that more than 20 gallons of water are required to remove just one tablespoon of dirt.
