When you bring your garments to us for dry cleaning, you can expect a thorough assessment of the fabric type, stains, and any special care instructions. Our experienced staff will treat each item with care, using eco-friendly cleaning methods to ensure your garments are returned to you in pristine condition. To track and identify your garments throughout our care process, we affix a small barcode in a discreet location. This allows us to ensure that your items are not only carefully cleaned but also meticulously tracked from start to finish.

Our standard turnaround time for dry cleaning, wash and fold, and shirt laundry services is 2 days. Alteration timeframes vary depending on the complexity of the work. If you’re in a hurry, we can accommodate rush jobs at not extra charge. Please call your location to confirm availability and discuss your needs.

Our wash and fold laundry service is designed for your convenience. Simply bring your unsorted laundry to us, and we’ll sort it, wash it using the highest quality detergents (or provide your own), dry it carefully to prevent shrinkage, and then fold it neatly for pickup. Laundry is weighed at drop-off.

We are committed to the environment and use the GreenEarth cleaning method that is gentle on fabrics and the planet. Our cleaning processes are biodegradable and non-toxic, ensuring a green approach without compromising on quality cleaning results.
