Chem-dry – What is it?

Chem-dry is a cleaning system in which a dry solvent is used, called perchlorethylene, which, accompanied by a special detergent, delicately cleans its clothes, not affecting the fibers or the colors. Take note of what you should consider as a consumer, when using the services of a dry cleaner: Garments that come with symbols of dry cleaning and those with linings and interlinings should be dry cleaned, as moisture spoils them. Do not forget to read very well the labeling of the garment (label), where symbols will appear that will indicate the treatment of the clothes, the compositions of the fabric and the precautions that should be taken when cleaning it.

As a good consumer try to deliver to the dry cleaner you choose, some information of your garment such as; origin of the stain, if it fades and others, because that way they will know what is best for their clothes and with what product to treat them. Indicate, also, where some less noticeable spots are located (especially in light colored garments), so that the clerk can mark them and point them to the person who will wash his garment. Who will always treat the stain, before washing dry? Remember to keep the delivery note and read it, since generally any incident or exception on the garments received should be detailed on the delivery note.

How does chem-dry cleaning work?

What is dry cleaning?

In chem-dry cleaning special liquids are used to remove dirt and stains from fabrics. In fact, the term “dry cleaning” is confusing; it is called dry cleaning because the liquids used do not contain water and do not penetrate the fibers as water does. Among the advantages of dry cleaning is its ability to dissolve fats and oils, which water cannot. The dry cleaning process begins with the pretreatment of stains using special cleaning substances. The garments are loaded in a machine that resembles a large household washer. During the chem-dry cleaning process the liquid is filtered and distilled to ensure its clarity and purity.

The solvent used by most dry cleaners is called Perchlorethylene, commonly known as “Perc”. It is non-flammable and non-combustible, of low toxicity, and is efficiently rejected and recycled. It is a procedure that is carried out in dry, it is totally natural and free of chemicals that effectively eliminates and destroys dust mites, fungal spores, bacteria, as well as other harmful waste found in mattresses. It is a non-invasive and totally safe system to disinfect any type of mattress regardless of age, size or style. It is done without moving the mattresses of the beds. First a contamination test is extracted by a disposable filter, to visualize the degree of contamination of the mattress.

The mattresses appear generally clean, but after obtaining the result of the extraction of the test, we verify that in practically any mattress we find contamination that at first sight is not detectable. The cleaning is dry and is done with an industrial vacuum cleaner that works with high frequency vibrations close to the ultrasound, detaching and pulverizing the harmful substances that are sucked with a vacuum system specially adapted to the mattress. At the same time, the surface of the mattress is disinfected with ultraviolet rays without a germicidal UV-C filter that deactivates the DNA of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens, which eliminates their ability to multiply and cause disease. Specifically, UV-C light damages the nucleic acid of microorganisms by forming covalent bonds between certain adjacent bases within the DNA.

The formation of these bonds prevents the DNA from duplicating itself, in such a way that the organism is incapable of reproducing itself and when it tries, it dies. The whole process is harmless for the human being, for domestic animals, for the material of the mattress and for the environment. Chem-dry cleaning takes place in approximately 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the size of the mattress. We recommend the repetition of the treatment in intervals of 6 to 12 months. Finally, a final deworming of the surface is carried out with the Aler-Combat spray, 100% biodegradable and 100% natural. It contains substances that help to cool the mattress with a pleasant citrus aroma and inhibit the proliferation of mites and all types of bacteria. There is only one safe, chemical-free way to clean and disinfect a mattress properly. Our team is the latest in technology and our service and support are unparalleled.

What are the steps for a professional chem-dry cleaning?

Professional cleaning involves several different operations, all developed by qualified people and designed to give your garments a fresh and clean appearance. The procedures include:

  • Finish the garment with professional ironing equipment.
  • Bag the garment in plastic protective wraps.

Chem Dry for sofas:

In the seats, the steam rehydrates conditions and restores the skin and does a fantastic job on water sensitive fabrics. Apply steam using the triangular tool and a microfiber cloth on soft surfaces, or use the bristles directly without a cloth for heavy dirt and then vacuum. Using steam is also the best method to eliminate dye transfer from leather seats.

Chem Dry for carpets:

The high pressure steam removes dirt and grease quickly while the heat melts any stuck residue, resulting in a fully restored molding. Easily clean the remnants, after applying the steam, with a microfiber cloth. High temperatures easily melt dirt and debris on door panels. Pass the triangular tool over the surface and set the low pressure setting. The steam removes stains, oil and dirt from the armrests. Low humidity vapor can be applied to the speaker grilles and window switches using the lancet , for best results.
