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.
