Why Professional Dry Cleaning Cleaning Services Are Superior To Your DIY Home Cleaning

Published On: 18 November 2021Categories: News

Let’s be honest, everyone at some point in their life has asked the question “Why can’t I do a professional Dry Cleaning job on my clothes at home?”. 

Be it convenience, budgeting or a willingness to try and learn new skills and take on that “Dry Clean Only” label on your favourite garments, it is a frequently asked question.

In this blog, we are going to break down the reasons why professional Dry Cleaning services are superior to your DIY Home Job.

1- They Are Professionals 

This one might seem obvious, yet it is often overlooked. Professional Dry Cleaners are exactly that, professionals! When it comes to delicate garments, expensive formal wear and professional uniforms, Dry Cleaning companies have spent decades perfecting formulas to delicately clean, prolong the life of garments and develop a polished service that works like clock work for their customers. 

2 – Protection With Reputable Companies

Professional Dry Cleaning comes with a guarantee that should your garments be damaged or ruined during the cleaning process (highly unlikely) then you will be reimbursed for the repairs or replacement of the garments. The risk vs. reward for attempting a home DIY job with no guarantees and all the risk that should you make one mistake, your garment will be ruined and you will be out of hundreds or even thousands of dollars. 

3 – Appropriate Techniques and Solvents

Dry Cleaning is a skill mastered over many generations of knowledge, technology and systems. Some particular chemicals and solvents can be bought over the counter at certain stores and give the illusion that they are safe to be used in home DIY jobs. But be warned, for your own health and safety and the lifespan of your garments, this is not advised. Master Dry Cleaners uses only the safest and most gentle Dry Cleaning solvents on your clothing and the environment, to ensure the safety of our customers and the planet continues. 

4 – Fast Turn Around vs. Time Spent At Home

A reputable Dry Cleaning company can turn around even the most complex and soiled job in around 24 hours or even the same day. If you factor in the time you will spend researching how to Dry Clean from home, purchasing the required technology and chemicals along with carrying out the actual clean job itself, plus allowing drying time, it really is a no brainer that Professional Dry Cleaning is the way to go.
