Professional Wet Cleaning

An alternative to dry cleaning is wet cleaning. This process uses water to remove stains and freshen clothing — even on dry-clean-only items such as wool, silk, leather and suede.

Wet Cleaning

The wet cleaning process uses water. Our state of the art wet cleaning equipment, which is extremely sensitive to moisture, precisely controls the amount of humidity in order to maximize cleaning without harming fabric, ensuring that clothing does not shrink, stretch or fade. For those who may be sensitive to standard cleaning products, wet cleaning is a perfect alternative to dry cleaning.

Wet cleaning can be a safe and chemical free way to clean dry clean only clothes. At Dependable Cleaners we read every care label to follow the recommended cleaning procedure. However technology has allowed us to use water on fabrics formerly dry clean only. To be clear, not all fabrics can be wet cleaned. Water soluble dyes for example must be discovered before cleaning or the result can be a faded garment. But for the dry clean only garments that can be wet cleaned we follow the care label. Unless either the client instructs us to wet clean something or experience has taught us differently.

In 90 years of serving Colorado, we've wet cleaned most khaki slacks. They just look better wet cleaned and crisply pressed rather than dry cleaned as if they were wool. If you dry clean your garments exclusively and a piece no longer looks or feels like it did when it was new, consider asking if it can be wet cleaned. Water can wash away any left over residue embedded in a garment which might be keeping it's nap down and feel compromised. Constantly keeping up with today's fibers and fabrics is our job and your choice. Keeping clients looking their best is why Dependable Cleaners has been chosen Best Colorado dry cleaner five years running this decade.
