Extend the Lifespan of Your Fabrics with Quality Dry Cleaning Services

Dry Cleaning Services

Dry cleaning is recognized by many as an effective way to provide overall care and maintenance to very sensitive and delicate fabric items. However, many people are uncertain as to whether or not engaging in these simple but effective cleaning procedures for clothing and fabrics contributes to the lifespan of their garments at all. With that said, the folks here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations want to share with our valued clients some important insight on dry cleaning and its benefits.


A unique and effective means of cleaning clothing and fabrics without the use of water, dry cleaning is often the process of choice by many individuals. The process, overall, is very delicate but extremely effective and is a service quite popular to many people, especially the fast-paced professionals and executives. The cleaning technique and entire maintenance process does not involve the use of water at all, but rather the use of a very effective but gentle solvent called perchloorethyleen (nicknamed perc). Perc is effective by dissolving dirt and oils that have managed to become absorbed in fabrics and causes no damage to any fabrics or materials throughout the cleaning process.

Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations our team of dedicated professionals takes pride in providing all our valued clients with the highest quality dry cleaning services this side of Franklin. When you choose our team of professionals, you are certainly putting your trust into the hands of some of the absolute best in the industry. Our technicians begin the effective cleaning process with the use of a wash chamber and a dose of perc solvent. Any dirt, stains and oils are removed from fabrics and clothing items as the wash chamber goes through its many cycles allowing the solvent to work its magic.

The majority of garments and fabrics we see here at our friendly facility are easily treated by way of this simple but delicate process. However, there are occasions when heavy stains may require additional time and attention and perhaps even more complex cleaning techniques to achieve the end result you are looking for. But overall, a great percentage of the time, our clients receive more than satisfactory results with our state-of-the-art perc solvent cleaning procedures.


For those of you who question whether or not dry cleaning can enhance the life expectancy of your fabrics and garments, the team here at Jimmy’s Cleaners wants to assure you the answer is outwardly a yes. This cleaning process is much less abrasive than your home washing machines and dryers. Since many fabrics tend to be sensitive to heat, water, and washing machine cycles, trusting in our quality dry cleaning techniques is a surefire way of feeling confident about the care of your clothes. Many professionals rely heavily on our cleaning techniques and often give testament to the outstanding results achieved.
