Wet Dry Cleaning

Best Care Cleaners in Evanston embraces and advocates the use of Wet (H 2 O) Dry Cleaning process. Wet Cleaning is the process of using water and specialized equipment and detergents to clean “dry clean only” garments. Generally, the term “Dry Cleaning” refers to the process of cleaning clothes using a liquid solvent. While still a liquid, the term “Dry” in dry cleaning referred to the fact that there was no water being used. This is because traditionally, water could not be used on certain fabrics, like wools and silks. However, wet cleaning process has changed all that and now makes “dry cleaning” environmentally friendly and healthier for your skin. Clothes come out brighter, softer, and odor free.

Why Wet Cleaning?

It's a much cleaner and safer alternative to “Dry Cleaning”. Dry cleaners have been using Petrochemicals to clean for decades, but the truth is, there are some serious problems with them. PERC or Perchloroethylene, the most widely used Petrochemical, is a pretty nasty substance. It’s been called a “likely carcinogen” (likely causes cancer) by the United States EPA, and is also considered a neurotoxin. It’s also a VOC (Volatile Organic Compound), meaning it’s an air pollutant. The next most widely used chemicals are called “Hydrocarbons”. While slightly better than PERC, these are still Petrochemicals, still neurotoxins, and still VOC’s. 
Furthermore, both PERC and Hydrocarbon create Hazardous Waste! These chemicals are so dangerous that they cannot be legally disposed of like any other substance. Most dry cleaners must hire Hazardous Waste Haulers to come collect the hazardous waste materials they create during the cleaning process. 
Over the last decade or so, as Best Care Cleaners in Evanston became aware of the hazards of using PERC and other petro-chemicals, we began looking for newer, more environmentally-friendly solutions. We searched for specialized equipment to aid in the finishing of wet-cleaned garments, and special softeners and additives have been created specifically for the wet-cleaning process. It is now totally safe to clean virtually any garment using the wet cleaning process! Best Care Cleaners is living up to its name to “best care” for our clients’ garments and advocating everyone to experience the greener way to clean.
Dry Cleaning

If a client chooses to and so desires, we will certainly accommodate and use the traditional “dry cleaning” method for your garments. About 2% of the garments is better suited for the traditional dry cleaning method using PERC and Hydrocarbons. In such instances, we take care of them through an
external dry cleaning factory that uses PERC.

We also provide commercial laundry service. We process most shirts, cotton pants, and other items in-house using commercial-grade laundry machines. With the convenience and superior level of pressing that comes with commercial laundry, it won’t be just your “dry clean-only” clothes that look like new. Your business casual and casuals will also look the best, too!
