What is Green Dry Cleaning and What are the Benefits?

In today’s world green living and green cleaning is increasing in popularity and organic living is spreading to every industry out there. Green dry cleaning supplies and services are more and more on the rise since they not only help to improve overall health but serve to improve the environment as well.

While there is a plethora of cleaning solutions available today that are remarkably useful and accomplish the cleaning tasks at hand, many of them contain toxic ingredients and some even contain carcinogenic ingredients as well. These solutions are extremely harmful to people’s health and cause environmental issues when polluting water sources. With green dry cleaning, cleaning techniques, solutions and products are not only environmentally friendly and safe, but they present with no health risks to those who choose to use them.

The benefits of green cleaning and green living are many. To begin with green cleaning solutions and methods provide safer homes. Conventional cleaners have toxic chemicals present within them and do indeed cause significant health issues. However, green or organic cleaning solutions remove all the dangers and concerns about toxic ingredients from your family’s home, which is important to everyone in the household including your children and your pets.

Yet another benefit of green cleaning and solutions is improved health. Many people nowadays, without having any knowledge of it, suffer from allergies, headaches, asthma and even varied aches and pains because of the chemicals that are contained within their cleaning solutions they use in their homes. The irritants in cleaning products cause varied health issues to those people who are consistently exposed to the products. Green cleaning products alleviate these dangers and concerns altogether.

Further benefits include a better quality of air in your home, a cleaner environment and even the simple fact that organic solutions and products are actually less expensive. Green products, are made from plant based ingredients and, therefore, have no strong, powerful odors. In addition, the use of green products and solutions greatly minimize water pollution and ozone depletion and are even less expensive than the cost of other cleaning solutions primarily because they are made of all natural ingredients.

Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations we take every precaution and any necessary steps to provide near to organic dry cleaning by omitting the use of perc from our dry cleaning services. As a result, our dry cleaning services are indeed safer, healthier and greener than those dry cleaning services that incorporate the use of perc in their procedures. Our highly skilled and trained dry cleaning specialists are committed to providing safe, healthy and environmentally clean solutions to all your dry cleaning needs and dedicate long hours to accomplishing this very task.

The Importance of Classification Procedures and Professional Dry Cleaning Services

At Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations we know how valuable all your cherished garments and fabrics are. We understand that when our clients bring their clothing or other items to our facility they are entrusting their belongings to our professional teams and services which is why we are so committed and dedicated to providing top of the line professional services that will simply not be matched. Our dry cleaning services are truly top notch because of the level of expertise and knowledge our teams share, not to mention our affordable prices, convenient drop off and pick up services and our attractive turnaround times.

Protecting your garments means a whole lot of things to our professional teams from using proper solvent and detergent levels, appropriate wash times, and load factors to filtration, fabric finishes and efficient stain and soil removal. All of these elements play an important role in the dry cleaning process of your garments and items. However, another very important part of our professional dry cleaning process is that of garment ‘classification,’ separating your garments and items by colors, fabrics, textures and cleaning needs. Properly separating your garments helps to prevent dye transfer and redeposition, as well as streaking that causes damage to garments and belongings.

Garment classification is essential to ensuring the safety of fabrics and to the proper removal of maximum soil. Because of the many different types of fabrics, fibers and dyes, it is important to separate the items accordingly since all fabrics do not require nor can withstand the same levels and types of dry cleaning processes. Classification is therefore necessary to ensure fabric safety first and foremost and then the removal of soil and dirt secondly.

Some of the most common classifications of garments and items include heavy weight dark colors, heavy weight light colors, light weight dark colors, light weight light colors, and garments that can fade easily. Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations we take this all-important first step of classification seriously and spend ample time determining fabric weight, color and dye factors so as to avoid any damage to your cherished garments.

In our classification we make certain to separate items by color, specifically keeping light colored garments and white garments separate from all dark colored garments since this simple process helps to prevent discoloration. We separate garments by their weight because lighter garments cannot necessarily withstand the same wash times as heavier garments and certainly those garments that are heavily soiled are cleaned entirely separate from all other garment classifications.

Further separation or classification would involve garments made of lace or delicate fabrics, those with fancy trim or sequins and various types of household items, such as window treatments. Whatever your garment makeup and fabric is, you need not worry when trusting your items to our professional teams. Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations we are proud of our overall classification procedures and the professional teams we employ. Our procedures provide the highest levels of classification and the most effective and efficient cleaning results.

For many people, dry cleaning is the ideal solution for many of their garment needs and surely the professionalism and expertise of our highly skilled and trained technicians affords our clients the peace of mind needed to know that their cherished belongings are in the hands of some of the industry’s absolute best.

For all your dry cleaning needs, reach out to Nashville’s best today – Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations, and don’t forget to check out our special discounts and take advantage of our convenient drop off and pick up services as well.

The Benefits of Professional Dry Cleaning

Dry Cleaning garments that are made of natural fibers, wool and silk is necessary since these very materials will most assuredly shrink, lose color and distort when washed in water, thereby minimizing the life expectancy of your beautiful favorite garments.

It is able to dissolve oils and grease in a unique process that water simply cannot do and certainly returns your favorite garments to a crisp, new condition while preventing any shrinkage, change of finish, or loss of color.   The finishing process that dry cleaning affords with its specialized pressing equipment, gives garments a crisp, new-like, wrinkle free appearance that simply cannot be matched.

Continuing on with the benefits of professional dry cleaning is the unique fact that dry cleaners know all about the fabrics. Whether rayon, cotton, polyester, wool, or silk, our professionals have the expertise and know how to handle all the cleaning needs of these sensitive, delicate fabrics.

Time to Unpack Your Spring and Summer Wardrobe

Spring is officially here. It is time to put away all those dark fall and winter clothes and unpack those bright, colorful and lightweight spring and summer wardrobe pieces. With that said, it’s time to bring all your winter wardrobe to the specialists here at Jimmy’s Cleaners & Alterations for cleaning before you tuck them away until fall and winter are upon us again. By cleaning all your clothes before storing them you help keep moths at bay and away from your cherished clothes. Once you have had all your garments cleaned by our professional team then it’s time to pack them away in a very dry place and keep them out of any direct heat or light.

Preparing for Spring

It only goes without saying that before you start unpacking the endless spring and summer garments you have, you should take ample time to clean out your closets and drawers so as to make room for the upcoming seasonal clothes. When spring cleaning your closets and drawers be certain to go through all your clothing pieces and determine which should be donated, which simply need to be thrown out, and which need to be professionally cleaned or even pressed before you put them away for a long time.

Keeping your closets and drawers clean and smelling fresh all year round will add both freshness and life to your wardrobe. Hanging dried sachets of lavender or even cedar in your closet and even in your dresser drawers will help to keep your garments smelling fresh and will also help to keep the moths away since lavender and cedar are both known to be moth repellants. Taking these extra little steps will ensure that your wardrobe always smells fresh and clean.

Once you have finished all your cleanup and preparation of your closet and drawers, and have provided elements that will contribute to the clean fresh smell of your clothes, then it is time to start unpacking and going through your spring and summer wardrobe. When unpacking your spring and summer wardrobe take a few moments to determine if there are any articles of clothing that you probably will not find yourself wearing any longer and put them together to donate to the Goodwill or perhaps donate to a local clothing and shoe drive in your community.

When unpacking, take time to put all your garments in their appropriate places, whether hanging in your closet or nicely tucked away in one of your drawers and remember to take advantage of the variety of scented items you can purchase to keep your clothes smelling crisp and fresh all spring and summer long.

Throughout the spring and summer months, don’t forget when your clothes need special dry cleaning or even alterations of any type, to bring them on down to our friendly and very professional facility. Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners & Alterations we offer customer drop off and pick up services in order to accommodate the hectic and cluttered schedules of so many of our clients.

Surely you spend a good deal of time and money on creating the perfect look so it only makes sense that you want to keep your garments looking stylish, clean and fresh and preserving your personal look.

In addition to our quality services, our specialists have a few important tips to share with you. For starters, never let stains sit for an extended period of time. If you experience a spill on your favorite piece of clothing be sure to get it down to our trusted cleaners soon as possible and whatever you do, don’t dry scrubbing the stain out first, this only makes it worse. Further, always pay attention to the tags on your garments and when it clearly says dry clean only, then indeed you want to dry clean only.

How to Protect your Draperies and Make them Last

Draperies are truly susceptible to a variety of problems from shrinkage and staining to fading and abrasion damage. Because your home’s draperies are exposed to all sorts of environmental and atmospheric conditions for long periods of time, they typically encounter a wide range of problems.

Some of the most common issues associated with your draperies are damage caused from excessive light exposure, yellowing due to soil accumulation in the draperies or deterioration of their finishes, water marks, abrasion damage, shrinkage, and even damage to the lining during cleaning processes. Though some of these issues can be the result of defects in the manufacturing stages, issues such as those affiliated with light exposure, yellowing, water marks, and abrasion damage especially are the result of varied circumstances during use.

Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations we take tremendous pride in providing all our valued clients with superior dry cleaning services. We are all about our clients and our number one priority is the happiness of each and every one of our clients. We provide superior dry cleaning services for draperies and contribute to the overall appearance and life expectancy of your draperies with our top-rated services and our innovative cleaning techniques.

We want all our clients to understand that the life expectancy of your draperies is dependent upon the fabric type and density, as well as finishes, the window location where they are hung, how long they have been in use and, of course, the type of care they receive. With that said, we offer the following insight to all our clients with regard to the care and maintenance of their draperies.

It is best to have your drapes cleaned by a professional dry cleaners and surely the experts here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations are skilled and equipped to handle all these very needs.

Further, it is important to protect your drapes from excessive moisture like rain or condensation from your window panes which can definitely result in water marks and mildew on your drapes. We also suggest that, when possible, homeowners rotate their draperies from time to time to vary the exposure to light.

To protect your drapes from abrasion damage you should avoid constant rubbing of the drapes on the window sills. This type of damage can also be caused by your friendly family pet snagging the fabric of the draperies with their claws. Finally, it is important to keep your drapes away from fireplaces and wood stoves since the smoke generated by both, and the smoke generated by cigarettes as well, have contaminants that can and will contribute to soiled draperies.

Practical Accessories for your Professional Work Wardrobe

With winter time upon us and the chill of the winter air all around, the need for practical and useful clothing essentials to help ward off the wind and the cold are key to everyone’s professional work wardrobe. Dressing the part for your professional job is important when you are striving to achieve those career goals of yours. People tend to formulate opinions on a first glance and surely you want to not only feel and act the part, but look the professional part as well. You want to be able to portray that confident professional image with a slight touch of class to show not only your boss and colleagues, but your clients as well that you are focused, driven and truly the real deal.

With that said we here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations take tremendous pride in providing all our professional clients with state of the art, superior dry cleaning and alteration services. We are committed to delivering that professional look you long to uphold time and time again with our extraordinary services, and our flawless end product. If you are like so many other members of the working class that are constantly looking to add a bit of style, class, and even sophistication to your professional look, then check out these suggestions the folks here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations have for you.

Professional Accessories to Add to Your Work Look

For starters, in the winter months, there is nothing quite as eye-catching and attractive as a nice wool overcoat. One of the finest materials to don yourself in when attempting to fight off the chill of the winter air and the frigid cold winds is good old-fashioned wool. We strongly recommend you invest in an attractive wool overcoat in order to stay warm and look spectacular at the same time. Our highly trained and experienced tailors can help you with your measurements which are important to making a proper and easier purchase that fits just right. Keep in mind when purchasing your wool overcoat that darker colors will allow you to wear your wool overcoat with all types of wardrobe attire including pants, suits, shirts and ties, and for the professional women out there with any style of dress or skirt as well.

Another very attractive, practical and useful winter accessory is that of a scarf. With a scarf you can certainly add class and appeal to your winter professional attire. Choosing the perfect scarf can be a bit of a fun challenge. People tend to think that a scarf needs to be simple, basic and of a neutral color. However, a scarf with a neutral base color accented with bright, bold colors is sure to liven up your attire, give it a creative presence, and, while adding to your business outfits, will also allow you to attract a bit of positive attention in the process as well.

Finally, at all times during the year, and primarily in the snowy, wet winter months, you want to be able to protect all your valuable documents at all times. The most obvious way of accomplishing this task is to invest in an attractive, stylish briefcase. A briefcase will certainly protect all your documents and files, but will also add style and pizzazz to your business attire. Be cautious when selecting the perfect briefcase and be certain to give much attention to the overall look you are attempting to achieve. Leather is typically the briefcase of choice and indeed is a great material for a briefcase since it is both appealing to look at and very resilient. There is a wide range of briefcases on the market today, many of which, we are certain, will satisfy the professional look you are going for.

Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations we always put our clients first and are ready, willing and able to contribute to your wardrobe needs, even if it is simply sharing wardrobe concepts and ideas with you.
