Frequently Asked Questions
Frequent drycleaning will increase the life of a garment. Not only do stains set with age making the garment unwearable, but dirt and soil act as an abrasive and can cause rapid wear of fibers.
Dry Cleaning removes dirt, wax and oils from clothes. Some stains such as coffee, soda, alcohol and perspiration require spotting prior to dry cleaning, which is why it’s so important to choose a drycleaner with excellent technical skills. Welsh’s Cleaners specializes in stain removal spotting and “finishing”. We can press your garments without effecting shine, fabric and buttons.
Stains left too long can be impossible to remove and can ruin your garment. It’s important to let us know what caused the stain, how long it has been there and what if anything you tried at home to remove the stain. Keep perfumes, lotions, deodorants and other toiletries from coming into direct contact with your clothes.
The drycleaning process is carefully controlled and should not result in shrinking. Excessive shrinkage is usually a result of improper preshrinking by the manufacturer.
