Eco-friendly dry cleaning also referred to as green cleaning, is an alternative to professional cleaning that avoids the use of perchloroethylene, a harmful chemical solvent otherwise known as perc.
Although there are alternatives to professional cleaning without the use of chemicals, still only about 20% of professional dry cleaners offer eco-friendly cleaning solutions. Currently the states of New Jersey, California and Illinois are committed to phasing out the use of perc by 2021-2023, by helping professional cleaners transition to other green cleaning options.

Wet Cleaning. With wet cleaning items are placed in a computer controlled washer and dryer that gently cleans clothes. These machines can be programmed based on time, temperature, and mechanical action. This allows our cleaning professionals to adjust according to the type of fabric and stain.
