What happens when you find your prized dress or shirt in bad condition? There are times when no matter what home solutions to clean your clothes just don’t get the job done. Handing your expensive clothes over to a dry cleaning service can be nerve-racking. Your most expensive outfit could come back looking like a fraction of its once original glory. The only way to prevent that from happening is to arm yourself with the knowledge and preparation before stepping into just any one of the many dry cleaners in Rancho Cucamonga.
No matter what it’s made out of: don’t over-wash your clothes. With dry cleaning, it becomes even more important not to dry clean them too often.
Before you go to a Dry Cleaner:
Make sure you look at the labels of your clothes to see if there are any special instructions. Note the fabric composition. If you’re really unconfident about your first cleaning, take photos of the clothes you want to get done beside other clothes for color comparisons. If possible, do your dry cleaning in matching sets, so if there is any fading, you will at least have a balanced change.
Act fast on any stains, get it to the dry cleaner as soon as possible or they could be embedded deep enough where no amount of cleaning can get it out without ruining the fabric.
Looking for a Rancho Cucamonga dry cleaning service armed with the right questions, like: What do they cover for lost and damaged clothes? Do they have a fair compensation policy in the event that your clothes are lost or damaged?
Don’t settle for a “proof of purchase” policy to get what you paid for, refunded. The best dry cleaners will allow you to get whatever the current market value is via average price found online. Some will honor your word if you are a long-time customer. Of course, priceless family heirlooms will always be something you will always be taking a risk with, no matter how good the dry cleaners are.
Ask them how and what do they use to clean specific types of clothing. Do they do anything differently for a silk gown or cotton pants? Don’t feel bad about interrogating the cleaners if it’s your first time using their services. If they are unsure about any of their cleaning process or can’t elaborate on anything, then you may not want to trust them with the handling of your delicate.
Are they Green? This is not only just an environmental concern, if your dry cleaner is using old school cleaning agents that do not pass the environmentally-friendly tests, then chances are they won’t be too great on your clothes either.
Selecting Rancho Cucamonga dry cleaners is just as critical as finding a competent tailor. If they know their business and have studied the various fabrics, how they react to varying solutions and levels of heat, then they will be able to support a robust loss and damages policy, an environmentally-safe service, and give you clear and concise answers on the handling of your prized possessions.
