As they launder or dry clean customers’ garments, the cleaning technicians at A-1 Dry Cleaners keep two principles in mind: thoroughness and convenience. They cleanse most garments within 24–48 hours, but more intricate getups—such as a wedding dress or a vintage firefighter's muumuu—may take up to 72 hours.
Pilgrim Cleaners offers a comprehensive cleaning approach that refreshes garments and can extend their closet lives well into their golden years. Cleaners pore over dingy clothes before pouring distilled solvent over them, employing a two-bath process that cleans clothes tenderly and leaves them looking new and crisp. The attentive and always-diligent dry cleaners then step in to hand-finish the job, canvassing garments for misplaced buttons and uranium stains. As with all dry-cleaning and mustache-trimming services, prices vary according to the size of the job, ranging from $1.99 for men's laundered shirts to $13.95 for dresses.
The staff at Regency Cleaners wants the environment to stay as immaculate as the shirts, dresses, and suits that emerge from its facility. As part of that effort, cleaners employ a textile dry-cleaning machine that's specifically designed to battle stains with nontoxic and odor-free solvents. In addition to this eco-friendly process, the staff launders everyday garments and preserves wedding gowns for a lifetime of being worn by the family's pets on Halloween. And if cleaners notice damage on a jacket or pair of pants, they can repair the item and make the necessary alterations.
The Shelton family applies more than 100 years' experience in the dry-cleaning business to swiftly cleanse clients’ garments at each of their locations’ in-house plants. Drop off any garment—from a blazer for work to coveralls for a live reenactment of American Gothic,—before 9 a.m. for same-day pickup after 5 p.m., or lollygag until 10 a.m. for next-day service. The reliable cleaners’ inspection department ensures that dry-cleaned clothes come back looking as crisp as a deep-fried cummerbund, and its gentle solvents, up-to-date equipment, and thoughtful recycling policies help steward the environment. In addition to its dry-cleaning services, Shelton Family Cleaners also provides regular laundry services, specialized wedding gown cleanings, alterations, and repairs.
