Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Environmentally Friendly Dry Cleaning?
    Industry statistics show that 85% of dry cleaners nationwide use a toxic solvent known as perchloroethylene ("Perc.") According to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), studies have shown Perc is a toxic chemical with human health and environmental concerns, leading several states to begin banning the use. Fortunately, we are "Simply Fresh" using state of the art, 100% Perc-Free, environmentally friendly machines. Eliminating Perc from your life is healthier for you, your family and preferred by allergy sufferers!
  • What is Wet Cleaning?
    No dry cleaner's cleaning technique is actually "dry." Technological advancements allow more items to be wet cleaned. Wet cleaning occurs using water, biodegradable soaps and conditioners in specially programmed machines. Wet cleaning differs from and is milder than even home laundry. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), studies have shown wet cleaning is the safest and most effective method of garment cleaning. Wet cleaning does not use toxic chemicals, generate hazardous waste or create air pollution.

  • Do you guarantee spots will come out?
    We try our best, but there is no guarantee a spot will come out. While our success rate is high, some spots simply do not budge. Unfortunately, we are unable to predict the outcome ahead of time. The original culprit of the spot, length of time the spot has existed, materials, age of the item, climate the item has been in, and more factor most into the outcome. The best thing you can do is have the item professionally cleaned immediately without doing any pre-treatment. In many cases, pre-treatment forces the spot into the fabric further making removal more challenging.
