Art Cleaners Offers Eco-Friendly Dry Cleaning Services in Boulder CO

Boulder, Colorado -

Art Cleaners is happy to announce that they are offering dry cleaning services in the Boulder, CO area using a process that is eco-friendly, odor-free, and is easy on the fabrics. Their process is unlike the traditional dry cleaning that uses petrochemicals. Their GreenEarth Cleaning process uses a unique silicone technology instead, which is not just earth-friendly but also protects the clothes.

It should be noted that most dry cleaners use petrochemical solvents with approximately 70 percent using perchloroethylene (perc), which has been classified by the EPA as an air and water toxin and is a suspected human carcinogen. While dry cleaners are required to comply with strict regulations to minimize emissions and regulate health and environmental risks, there is no getting way from the fact that perc is dangerous to people and the whole planet. It can also be harsh on clothes since it can leech dyes and wear away surface fibers. Meanwhile, 25 percent of dry cleaners use a hydrocarbon solvent, which is also a petrochemical. While this represents a significant improvement compared to perc, hydrocarbon solvent is classified by the EPA as a volatile organic compound (VOC), which is an air contaminant. It is also a neurotoxin and it can cause skin and eye irritation.

Art Cleaners employs two kinds of environmentally friendly textile cleaning processes: 100 percent professional wetcleaning and GreenEarth dry cleaning. Professional wetcleaning is simply cleaning with water. However, unlike with home laundry, they use computer-controlled cleaning machines and high tech finishing equipment that make sure the fabrics will retain their proper size and shape. They use this process for clothes that can be safely cleaned using water.

But for everything else, they use GreenEarth Cleaning. This process uses pure liquid silicone instead of petrochemicals. Silicone provides a gentle and odor-less solution. It is non-hazardous and non-toxic and the EPA has deemed it unnecessary to regulate its use. Silicone is basically liquefied sand and when released to the environment, it simply breaks down into its three natural elements and trace quantities of water and carbon dioxide. It is also safe for people. In fact, liquid silicone is a base ingredient in many conditioners, shampoos, cosmetics, and lotions.

Art Cleaners does not only provide eco-friendly dry cleaning. They also offer alterations with the expert tailoring services. Whether clothes have broken zippers, torn seams, hemlines that need to be adjusted up or down, or waistbands that no longer fit, they can be repaired, restyled, or resized. Having them altered so they can still be used is the eco-friendly thing to do.

It is also important to note the Art Cleaners also offers same day service. This means that those who drop off their clothes by 8:30 am, they could them ready to wear after 4:00 pm on the very same day.

In addition, Art Cleaners can also clean and revitalize all kinds of fabrics in the home, such as pillows, comforters, duvets, drapes, stuffed animals, and more. They can also clean and restore quality leathers and suede. They can offer cleaning, dyeing, finish restoration and repair tears, rips and replacement of linings.

They can also offer shirt laundry and also wedding gown cleaning. They will inspect, get rid of stains, clean, and finish the wedding gown. Their cleaning process includes a special step that will make sure those “invisible stains” with sugar, salt or citrus acid can dry clear and be removed. The wedding gown will just need to be stored in a cool, dry place in the home and dampness and heat should be avoided to prevent the gown from yellowing and getting mildew.

Founded in 1921, Art Cleaners has been serving as a full service dry cleaner ever since, providing the best in laundry, dry cleaning, and alterations. Quality has always been their foremost goal and it was in 2003 when they converted to the GreenEarth Cleaning System, which is a new and revolutionary cleaning system that is not just good for the clothes but also for the family and the environment. They have seven locations throughout Boulder, Longmont, Broomfield, Erie, and Lafayette. Art Cleaners has been the recipient of the Boulder County Gold award from 2006 to 2020.
