The solvent used is typically tetrachloroethylene (perchloroethylene), which the industry calls "perc". It is used to clean delicate fabrics that cannot withstand the rough and tumble of a washing machine and Dry Cleaning is any cleaning process for clothing and textiles using a chemical solvent other than water.

All garments will be inspected prior to cleaning. We will then remove any stains by hand before the cleaning process begins. Again we will inspect your garment after the cleaning process to ensure stains are removed where possible. All garments will be recleaned if the stain has not been removed. Garments are then had finished using steam & ironing systems.
We can cater for all dry cleaning needs including Wedding Dresses, Kilts and household items.
Curtain Dry Cleaning
Dry cleaning curtains involves movement in the processing. This can exaggerate weakness in your curtains – for example sun damaged linings can tear and sun damage colours can lighten.
Most curtains shrink 3% in dry cleaning especially if cleaned for the first time or if they have interlining.
Blackout linings can only be accepted at owners risk - there is a risk of the rubberised part de-laminating. (specialist cleaning only with its lower temperatures).
Curtains with water damage are unlikely to return like new after dry cleaning. Water marks are usually ringed and set in with time and are not normally possible to remove.
