When should dry cleaning be used?
Before washing an item of clothing at home always read the label. If a label indicates dry cleaning, all parts of the clothing, such as shoulder pads, lining, buttons or possible applications, should remain unaltered after cleaning.
In the case of very delicate fibers, such as silk and quality wool, or if the item has embroidery or details that could be damaged by traditional water washing, dry cleaning is also advisable.
What are the advantages of dry cleaning?
With water washing, clothes lose colour, starch and wear down. Dry cleaning takes more care of the fibers, ensures that clothes do not shrink and retains colours.
What is dry cleaning?
Contrary to what the name may indicate, dry cleaning is not only done with air; specific liquid solvents adapted to each fabric are used.
What process is followed?
First, the items are reviewed and all stains are located. They then undergo a stain removal process with specific liquid soaps. After this, the items must rest so the product can take effect. Finally, a specific drying process is carried out depending on the type of clothes, then the items are ironed.
If you don't know if an item of clothing should be dry-cleaned and you have removed the label or if you have a dry-cleaning item that you would like to be able to wash at home, come visit us and we will advise.

Obviously, carpets accumulate dust mites and dirt, especially if we have pets. A bad washing process does not completely remove the stains and leaves traces of moisture, which increases the proliferation of mold and the risk of allergies.>
It is advisable to vacuum carpets once a week (once a day with a hand-held vacuum cleaner if you have pets would be ideal) and, every six months, to have them thoroughly cleaned by an expert to ensure good maintenance and hygiene.
By doing so, you will avoid excessive accumulation of dust mites, bacteria, and dirt and eliminate the possible presence of mold.

Don't risk it!
If you have stains on your carpet... it is better not to risk cleaning it yourself. By trying to remove the stain you could embed it. Try to absorb the stain as much as possible with kitchen paper and get in touch with us so we can finish the job.
Don't wait too long! The dirt could get fixed and permanently damage the carpet.
With the hectic pace of everyday life, we don't always have the time to wash those larger items that require special attention: blankets, curtains, sofa covers, quilts...
Why should they be cleaned frequently?
Daily use can, especially if there are pets at home, make these items accumulate dirt, mites and bad smells that can often go unnoticed but make our homes lose their freshness.
We recommend that, with the change of seasons, you thoroughly clean of all these items. This will allow you to start the new season with a fresh and clean home.
Why shouldn't we clean these items at home?
They are usually large. Heavy items that absorb a lot of water, which can damage the washing machine drum.
Also, exposure to the sun and bad washing can damage the fabric and colours, giving it a worn appearance.
Not having the right tools and products, washing at home does not guarantee complete cleanliness and hygiene of clothes.>
