The Importance of Our Service

Dirt is made up of tiny crystals that cut fibers. Food spots invite all types of insects. The hardness minerals from water and food can degrade fibers. Perspiration permanently stains fabrics. These are some of the reasons for dry cleaning and wet cleaning. We make every attempt, through condition reports and testing, to consider all factors before cleaning. Cleaning is a non-reversible procedure that is not recommended for every item.

Conservation Dry Cleaning

Conservation dry cleaning is accomplished with the use of the dry solvent perchlorethylene, using extra filtration systems and distillation. Old and fragile items are tested extensively and cleaned separately, often with extra support.

Conservation Wet Cleaning

After extensive testing, fabrics deemed candidates for wet cleaning are supported then cleaned using soft and filtered water. All cleaning solutions are adjusted according to accepted museum standards.
