The textile technicians at Village Cleaners purify wardrobes using a biodegradable solvent called DF-2000 Fluid. This hypoallergenic, eco-friendly solution is sensitive to the needs of fragile fabrics but still has the muscle to break down dirt, grime, and salad dressing around the collar. A fresh dose of solvent goes into each load, along with fresh soap and a brand new filter, to ensure that clothes emerge from the machine as clean as technologically possible and free of static, odor, and allergens.
But the process doesn’t stop there. Once clothes are clean, the staff will starch shirts if requested and replace any broken or missing buttons at no charge. A final inspection sees to it that no spot or stain escapes back into the world, and alteration, repair, and leather care tends to especially needy garments.
As the titular technician at Ward Group Property Services, Norman Ward dedicates his company's efforts to the maintenance and cleaning of his clients’ homes. Norman heads up a team of employees who have each passed OSHA safety training, meaning each service is performed in a sound manner and never capped with a death-defying dismount from a slippery roof. Homeowners can call upon the team to regularly wash their windows to prevent hard water stains, clean gutters of debris and mildew, or pressure wash the mold and black stains off their walls, walkways, and patios.
