Is dry cleaning safe? It’s a fair question. After all, if you’ve ever taken your clothes to a professional dry cleaner, odds are they’ve come back with a faint – or not so faint – chemical odor clinging to them. Anything that smells like that can’t be healthy, right?
So, short of not buying anything with the label “dry clean only”, how
can you get your clothes the professional care and cleaning they need,
while protecting the health of you, your family and the environment?
At Best Cleaners, we use two proven green cleaning technologies. The first, which is endorsed by the EPA as the safest professional method of cleaning, is wetcleaning. Just what it sounds like, wetcleaning combines specialized equipment, water, and specialized detergents to clean your garments. Because wetcleaning doesn’t use hazardous chemicals, it doesn’t generate any hazardous waste or pollution and reduces the potential for water or soil contamination.
The second green cleaning process used at Best Cleaners is SYSTEMK4 (SK4), a halogen-free solvent that has been shown to pose no risk to air, water, human beings or soil. What is exciting about this innovative cleaning technology is that it is biodegradable and has been skin-tested with a result of “very good”. Moreover, SK4 is both EPA and California State approved. Perhaps most exciting, SK4 offers consumers an odorless cleaning solution – ensuring that your clothes smell as safe and healthy as the cleaning process behind them.
