Eco-friendly Dry Cleaning
What is eco-friendly cleaning?
"Dry cleaning" means laundering fabrics using a liquid other than water. Until recently, the only available dry cleaning solvents were petroleum-derived hydrocarbons, like perchlorethylene, or "perc". Perc is what's responsible for that harsh chemical smell typically associated with dry cleaning. Though these solvents are good cleaning agents, they pose potential hazards to our health and our environment.
Eco-friendly cleaning takes those hazardous chemicals right out of the equation.
Greening our operations since 1994, London Cleaners uses an innovative new cleaning system that cleans clothes better than the old, hazardous methods, even betten than the first generation of greener dry cleaning processes like those that use liquid silicone or carbon dioxide, with significantly less energy consumption as well.
First in Ohio, our SystemK4's machinery is specially designed to be used with its own halogen-and hydrocarbon-free solvents and other cleaning agents, to make dry cleaning safer for your clothes, safer for your skin, safer for our employees, and safer for the environment. Developed with German precision and Italian craftsmanship, SystemK4 is recommended by both America's Best Cleaners™ and the Green Business Bureau for its perfect marriage of expert performance and forward thinking. The solvents are biodegradable, dermatologically tested, and classified very favorably by Germany's Ordinance on Hazardous Substances and other stringent European statutory environmental regulations.
Gentle on the environment, gentle on your clothes.
What's good for the Earth is great for your clothes! Wools do not get "washed out," dry, or full of static. Silks, acetates, buttons and trim are treated tenderly. Even beaded wedding gowns are safely and easily treated! Fabrics retain their shape, color, and soft feel, remaining bright and intact. There's very little wrinkling, and instead of that nasty, chemical odor, only a fresh clean scent.
Here at London Cleaners, we've made this change because it is important to us to do as much as we can for our clients, our employees and our environment. Here's to a more sustainable future!
