WHAT IS WET CLEANING?
Wet cleaning is a process of washing that uses water as the main cleaning solution. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, wet cleaning is the safest professional method of garment cleaning. Why? Because the wet cleaning process does not utilize hazardous chemicals and does not generate hazardous waste that can leech into our earths soil or end up in the air.
The specialized detergents and conditioners used in the wet cleaning process are much milder than home laundry products, and they can be disposed of down the drain and easily handled by the local wastewater treatment facility. All in all, posing no threat to human safety.
But, keep in mind that wet cleaning by a professional Dry Cleaners is not the same as doing the laundry at home. The equipment we use at Jack’s Cleaners differs in that the detergents are much gentler.
At Jack’s Cleaners, detergent type and volume, water temperatures, and drying temperatures are all precisely calculated for each individual fabric type of the garments we wash. The revolutions per minute (RPM) can also be preset, giving your delicate items much less friction and wear in our machines, compared to washing the same garment at home.
The experts at Jack’s Cleaners can help determine which cleaning process is best for your garments. We can even wet clean items that were once considered dry clean only, such as wool, linen, leather, suede and silk.
