As its name suggests, dry cleaning is a process for cleaning textiles that does not use water, but a mixture of solvents. In general, it is used to wash delicate clothes, as it offers an interesting ability to respect silk, wool and other fragile textiles.
However, this type of cleaning has several disadvantages. The main thing is that it can only be carried out by professionals trained for this task and qualified, since they must use dangerous chemical mixtures. In addition, the use of large machines will be necessary so that the fabric can come into contact with these solvents in a homogeneous manner.
It is also important to note that perchlorethylene, one of the main components used in dry cleaners, was banned in 2012 by the Ministry of Ecology, so by the end of 2022 it will disappear from dry cleaners for good.
Wet Cleaning is a washing method that, undoubtedly, is here to last. It is an effective process on all types of fabrics, including the most delicate. In addition, it is a cleaning method that does not emit any type of contaminating particle, which makes it much more responsible from an ecological point of view. To use Wet Cleaning programs, specific equipment is required. In our case, our washers, dryers and flatwork ironers incorporate the ET2 microprocessor, fully programmable and prepared for it, with advanced features related to energy efficiency.
It is therefore a technique that offers several advantages.
The main one, as we have already said, is that it is a fully eco-friendly process. Water consumption, on the other hand, is much lower than that produced during normal dry cleaning.
In addition, it is just as gentle with any fabric as dry cleaning and causes less of a risk to your health.
Finally, it should be noted that Wet Cleaning results bring very soft clothes, which smell very good, due to the fact that no type of chemical products are used.
The world of textile cleaning has evolved over the years, and new technologies have allowed the emergence of techniques that are ever more efficient and more committed to our environment. In this sense, Wet Cleaning appears to be a very interesting alternative to dry cleaning when it comes to keeping clothes of all kinds in good condition.
