Dry cleaning is basically any cleaning process for clothing and textiles using a chemical solvent other than water. It is used to clean delicate fabrics that cannot withstand the rough and tumble of a washing machine and clothes dryer; it can also eliminate labor-intensive hand washing.
The process of drycleaning dates back to 1800′s when by accident a petroleum-type fluid was accidentally spilled on a piece of fabric that was stained with a greasy stain. it quickly evaporated and left the area clean where the fluid had been spilled. The firm of “Jolly Belin” opened in Paris, France in the 1840′s and is reported to be the “First Dry Cleaning Firm” in existence.
Other than the processes of identifying garments and packaging orders, there are 3 main stages of drycleaning your garments and textiles:
Garments that are soiled or affected by perfume, deodorant, perspiration or salt stains should be dry cleaned as soon as possible. stains allowed to stay on fabric for longer periods of time are more difficult to remove. During normal wear clothing is exposed to air pollution and dust which weakens the fibres. Light coloured garments, silks and linens should be cleaned after each wear as they tend to be more vulnerable to soil. Always have your clothing dry cleaned before storage at the end of the season.

No. Quite simply, the quality of dry cleaning is directly related to the price you pay for it. Just like most things in life. You’ll find some cleaners clean garments for an amazingly low price. Cleaning quality, care and attention to detail, will probably be amazingly low as well.

There are many reasons that a stain may not come out of a garment during the cleaning process or stain removal. Some possibilities are :
- The stain has been set in the fabric over time
- The stain has been worked on before coming to Diamond Dry Cleaners and the water or chemical used has set the stain in the fabric.
- Some stains, such as some types of ink, are not easily removed from certain fabric.
- Fabric dye may be unstable, risking discoloration of fabric.
- Do not apply water or any other solution to the stain, and bring the item in for professional cleaning as soon as possible.
- Fresh stains are generally much easier to remove.

All garments are different, and require different types of cleaning. Many garments can be cleaned in a few hours, but some delicate or extra soiled clothes may take up to two days to be cleaned.
No, experience and training is paramount to a professional clean. Another major factor is the quality of the soaps and detergents used of the highest standard
No, on the contrary, drycleaning prolongs the life of your clothing because it is being treated according to exact fabric specifications.
Also, drycleaning dissolves grease and oils in a way that water cannot. Natural fibres like cotton, wool and silk can shrink, distort, and lose colour when washed in water but dryclean easily. Synthetic fibres like polyester also respond well to drycleaning, but they can retain oily stains after ordinary washing. Drycleaning helps to return garments to their original condition by using precautions to prevent shrinkage, loss of colour, and change of texture or finish.
