Dry cleaning is a process of soil removal that involves no water. Instead a solvent is used. Here at S & S Cleaners, we use a petroleum based solvent that is widely regarded as the best solvent for silks, beaded items, and fine formal wear. Petroleum solvent is a very light liquid that impacts your garment colors and size in a much less aggressive manner than either water or the industry standard solvent PERC. Hence fabric life, color retention, sizing and measurements of garments are protected by dry cleaning. Dry cleaning will also deter moth damage to woolens and extend the garments life expectancy. In some instances, a garment must be washed to effectively remove water bound stains. Stains like blood, mildew, pet urine, and oxidized age stains are a few of the types that may require the use of water and specially formulated "wet cleaning” detergents. Remarkable results are possible with our years of experience in handling problem garments.

Drapery and curtain cleaning presents several challenges for the homeowner. First, you must be certain the fabric strength is adequate for cleaning. Prolonged sun exposure can and will dry rot many fabrics and linings. Preferably before drapes are removed for cleaning, they should be checked for strength.
You can do that by gripping the most sun exposed area between both thumbs and index fingers. If upon moderate pulling of the fabric and if it tears easily, then the drape cannot be cleaned without risking damage. If you have already removed your drapes we can help you test their strength when you bring them in.
S & S Cleaners also offers take down and rehang service with a local professional drapery installer. The installer can remove and de-pin your drapes, bring them to S & S Cleaners for processing, and re-hang them for you. Please call for an appointment and further details.
