Convenience, care, and sustainability are the guiding principles of Advantage Cleaners, where garment professionals have provided clients with meticulous, eco-friendly dry-cleaning and laundry services since 1994. Advantage Cleaners provides free pickup and delivery services, ferrying clothes to and from homes and offices. In addition, its professional tailors provide expert alterations and repairs, and advanced preservation technology helps staffers defend wedding gowns from the ravages of time while also preventing them from escaping their garment bags to sneak into a senior prom.
Rick Hallor knows there's only one good way to hang a sweater. Keeping his customers' clothes from stretching out may seem like a small nicety, but looking out for people has been the central aim in every professional endeavor he's ever undertaken, whether it was personal training in Illinois or firefighting in Colorado. After relocating to San Diego to escape the frigid Colorado winters and boredom that stems from living in an almost-square state, he decided to put his helpful spirit to use in the dry-cleaning arena. He purchased Speedy Cleaners in 2011, and now he and his wife Calley work to extend the life of their clients' clothing within their homey and welcoming shop.
The family-operated dry-cleaning business not only cleans people's day-to-day garments, but also restores family heirlooms such as wedding dresses. Garment repairs can also be done onsite, as Rick's staff includes both a professional seamstress and a cobbler.
For more than 20 years, the friendly family of tailors and cleaners at Mirage has honed its skill in the textile arts from custom tailoring and alterations to speedy, thorough dry cleaning. Fluent in both English and Vietnamese, the hard-working technicians can serve a diverse customer base while pampering each comforter, suit, blouse, or shirt in their care with complimentary hand-spot treatments and massages.:m]]
Clients rarely cross the threshold at Excellent Cleaners. Every day, the cleaners' fleet of yellow cars canvas their area picking up bags full of customers' clothing free of charge. They then refresh items and lift away stains using a waterless system, even hemming skirts and sewing on buttons at customer request. The next day, garments get loaded back onto the delivery car and returned to its owner, usually full of stories about their "spa day."
