Cleaning process and COVID-19
There is no definitive research on how long or even whether
the virus lives on clothes and textiles, however according to our chemical
suppliers, all bacteria and viruses, including Covid-19, are destroyed in both
of our dry cleaning and wet cleaning processes.
This is due to the disinfectant levels in our washing, the dry cleaning solvents that we use and our drying temperatures that are between 40 – 70 degree Celsius, which will not allow micro-organisms to survive.
If you are planning on cleaning garments or textiles such as
bedding, furnishing and other linens, please let us know if we can help.
