Once upon a time, Swanson's Cleaners technicians would begin their days by firing up irons, stirring starches, and strapping on roller skates. The business was once one of the largest dry-cleaning facilities west of the Mississippi, the epicenter of Salvin Swanson's vast dry-cleaning empire—an empire packed with Sacramento's laundry, even the chain mail of its knights. To get the job of all this weighty laundry done, staffers needed their own wheels, plus wheels for their hampers.
Now helmed by the third generation of Swansons, the business has grown to 15 locations. In these locations, the team launders and dry-cleans garments with the eco-friendly Revive system, which uses a gentle, odorless, and antibacterial solution made from organic ingredients. Ever mindful of the earth and the community, Swanson's Cleaners recycles its hangers and plastic bags and has collected more than 27,000 coats for local children in need through its Coats for Kids program.
Dry Clean Today started with one location in Elk Grove in 1987 and has since expanded to 8 locations across the Sacramento area, including a brand new Folsom location. Open seven days a week, Dry Clean Today fastidiously expunges stains from favorite frocks and presses garments with haste, offering same- or next-day service. Professional cleaners also purge weather-borne impurities from raincoats or jackets, and keep fancywear spry with formal-gown or prom-dress cleaning. Otherwise, wedding-dress cleaning and box preservation keep sacred gowns in tiptop shape, ensuring that they can be passed down to children, grandchildren, or life-size Barbie dolls for use at their own weddings.

The staff at Meticulosity Cleaning Service stays abreast of green technologies so they can help keep both homes and the earth clean. Once on premises, each member of the cleaning crew completes a list of cleaning tasks each time they clean a home, which includes services such as baseboard dusting, appliance cleaning, vacuuming, and mopping. Clients can also opt to upgrade to include a more involved service, such as a carpet, tile, and upholstery cleaning and removing lodged balls from home bowling alleys.
Newbold is a family-owned-and-operated full-service dry cleaner that has been serving savvy wardrobe owners since 1983. Bring your grimy garments down to its storefront and they'll be quickly cleaned of disquieting stains, swamp vapors, and ghostly ectoplasm, as well as more mundane filth. Pants, blouses, sweaters, and skirts can be de-dirtied for $5.25 a pop, while larger items such as a light jacket ($8), a one-piece dress ($10.25), and a two-piece suit ($10.95) cost slightly more. Polish a favorite power tie for $5, or prepare for the big interview at an impossibly tiny micro-office by cleaning up a suave sport coat ($6.25). Two-hour service is available Monday through Saturday. While Saturday service is a huge convenience in and of itself, Newbold's drive-thru service lane provides extra-speedy convenience for non-pedestrians and/or escaping Blues Brothers.
True to its name, Always Green Clean makes eco-friendly practices a priority whenever revivifying abodes. Its carpet cleaning technicians use nontoxic, biodegradable products to steam clean carpets, boasting a 95% success rate on removing stains caused by spilled drinks or Sunday night paint fights. The same level of detail goes into tidying rooms, refinishing hardwood floors, and restoring sparkle and shine with a tile and grout cleaning.
