Code 3 Cleaners' seasoned staff spruces up garbs and household textiles through professional laundry, dry-cleaning, and alteration services. Dry cleaners eschew water in favor of a chemical solvent to wrest stains from fine fabrics; the laundering and hand-washing specialists use top-quality detergents and softeners. After washing, they carefully sort and fold spotless duds into neat piles or crisp airplanes. A pickup and delivery option accommodates clients who are busy or who have no clean pants left to wear.
The combination of superb organizational skills and raw talent in the dry cleaning arts makes One Hour Martinizing stand out among competitors in the industry. The franchise staff has earned a reputation among clients over the past 20 years for providing efficient service to people eager to get the crispest, cleanest clothing and get on with their day. One Hour Martinizing scours out the stains in-house, using the recommended environmentally safe process to achieve optimal cleanliness, and has most items ready for pick up within one day. In addition to clothing, the store offers cleaning services for homewares like curtains and bedding, with the most expensive item on their price list a king-size comforter cleaning at $25. They can also tackle the tricky materials of leather and suede, also offering clothing alterations.
Named Favorite Dry Cleaner by Modesto Bee readers in 2010, Del Rio Cleaners wins fans by treating attire and bedding using earth-friendly products and processes. The stain-busting staff can re-crisp men's shirts ($2.60) and refresh cozy sweaters ($7). Two-piece suits ($12.70) receive an extra dose of dapper, and freshness retires to bed following the thorough cleaning of comforters ($25), bedspreads ($23.75), and over-counted sheep. Legs can swing free and easy beneath rejuvenated dresses ($10.25), snuggle inside newly cleaned pants ($5.75), or envy arms ensconced in jackets ($6.25). Free of petroleum and air contaminants, the GreenEarth process cleans clothes without harming the air, water, or other colors' feelings.

When Omar Morineau was 17 years old, a local businessman named Cal handed him an airbrush and car-paints, entreating the teenager to “learn how to use ‘em.” The self-taught youth was soon plastering flashy graphics on sports cars, and before long had moved on to custom surfboards and his own mural business. Then he thought he’d get some higher education. A stint at L’Acedemia di Belle Arte in Florence informed his expressive technique, which ranges from anatomically accurate, occasionally surrealistic oil paintings to stylized graphic designs for bands, businesses, and the lemonade stands of overly ambitious five-year-olds. Today, when he isn’t laboring on his latest commission, the enterprising artist promotes creativity through classes for all ages, with early-childhood sessions aimed at fostering a love of creation and workshops for older students focused on launching careers in two-dimensional and computer arts.
Inside the Douglaston School of Music and Art, certified yoga instructor, Daniela Crocchiola, uses her years of experience and extensive training to guide students through hot vinyasa yoga and ballet bar classes. Brought to her mother's yoga classes as a young cobra, Crocchiola learned the benefits of regular stretch sessions at an early age and credits the practice for helping her grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. While working in Manhattan in fashion and cosmetic marketing, Crocchiola studied a variety of yoga styles, such as Bikram, ashtanga, and kundalini, and obtained 200 hour yoga teaching certifications recognized by the Yoga Alliance and by loyal downward facing dogs everywhere. In addition to being a certified yoga instructor, Crocchiola's skills equip her to lead Pilates and ballet bar workouts.
My Buddy Cleaners proves that environmental responsibility does not have to come at the cost of stylish clothing by using only environmentally friendly cleaning methods to keep clothes looking their best. The store handles all its clothes-cleaning services with either Green Earth dry-cleaning technology or the Faultless by Nature laundering system. The shop also offers by-the-pound wash-and-fold service, alterations, and tailoring, ensuring every garment flatters patrons’ figures and style without formulating a wardrobe of shrink-wrap clothes. Clients can drop off their apparel or take advantage of free biweekly or on-call pickup and delivery services that are quicker than a greased roadrunner.
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.
Before sending garments through the eco-friendly cleaning process, the staff at Sac Green Cleaners looks out for loose buttons, broken zippers, and tags that detail specific cleaning instructions. This is par for the course for them, and one of many examples of how they strive to keep their customers satisfied and looking sharp. For a few more examples, look no further than the pre- and post-cleaning spot treatments and complimentary pickup and delivery service. Before bagging garments to send off to homes, the staff meticulously removes all lint from sweaters and presses dress shirts. They can also perform alterations, extract the smell of cigarette smoke from jackets, and repair ties used as ziplines to escape boring office meetings.
Charleen "Char" Gagliardi owes her life to dry cleaning. In 1937, her parents bought a red bungalow on McHenry Avenue and opened up Deluxe Cleaners. The business kept Char's dinner plate full and her wardrobe natty as a youth, and it became her bread and butter 40 years later, when she left her career as a teacher to continue her parent's legacy. With the help of her husband, Carl, Char built a laundry room and initiated free pickup and delivery service, and the couple joined the Lions Club to share their work ethic and the free wattage emanating from their luminous smiles with the community.
Char and Carl now watch proudly as their daughter, Pam, follows a familiar path to happiness. Pam began learning the ins and outs of Deluxe Cleaners when she was 13. She has since modernized its gadgets with the support of her husband, and she designed an invisible fairy-wing steamer at the behest of her three children. Three generations of know-how inform their technique, which relies on petroleum-based solvent to clean fine garments and household textiles such as rugs and bedding without damaging the environment.
Patients at Gill Dental Group have the unique privilege of having their teeth looked after by a movie director. When he's not working on independent films, Dr. Param Gill makes sure teeth are camera ready by preventing cavities and improving smiles with cosmetic treatments such as Invisalign and dental implants.
He founded Gill Dental Group, which now boasts multiple locations, alongside Dr. Lavanya Gill, a dental expert who has written more than 50 dentistry articles for local newspapers. If necessary the Gills can administer sedation or play a CD of Morgan Freeman singing whale songs to relax patients during dental treatments.
In a gesture of good will toward their customers and Mother Nature, the team at Arrow Cleaners installed an organic dry-cleaning system in 2009. The new system, the EM Natura, uses effective microorganisms rather than harsh chemicals to break down dirt and eat up odor-causing bacteria. They take extra care with delicates, leathers, and tapestries, and they refrain from asking too many questions about any superhero costumes they encounter.
With only a portable cleaning system and a set of buckets, father-and-son team Paul and Tim Casson began their carpet-care business, eventually partnering with two close friends and later, their daughter and sister Tiffany Casson. Today, Tiffany Casson is the primary shareholder, and Casson & Son Carpet Care is still owned by the Casson clan, even after weathering some difficult times. All five of the current owners and operators proudly clean carpets themselves and interact with homeowners one-on-one while expunging dirt from weathered floor coverings with powerful truck-mounted steam systems, mild detergents, and residue-eliminating rinse. The company, which is certified by The Clean Trust, uses only products that are safe for use around pets and children.
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.
Clean clothes are always in fashion. That's the idea behind Vogue Cleaners, whose technicians gently take the stains out of everything from formal wear to everyday duds. Fragile materials such as leather pose no problem to Vogue's professional team, nor do household textiles, wedding dresses, or hand-stitched Richard Nixon costumes. But the company doesn't just freshen up clothing; it also keeps the planet clean by packaging outfits in reusable bags and using an EPA-supported "wet cleaning" technique on sensitive garments.
