Heavily stained garments may go through a stain removal process prior to cleaning to aid in better soil and stain removal. A stain removal technician will treat specific items just prior to cleaning.
Stain removal depends upon various issues such as the type of fabric, dyes and the natures of the stain. All fabrics and dyes may not be able to withstand the use of cleaning agents. As a means of assisting us in the stain removal process, we recommend the following:
1. Inform us of the location of any stains as well as any procedures you have used to treat them. Insects like stains; microscopic insects love to feed on your clothes. They are attracted to unattended stains and can cause damage to fibers. Frequent cleaning keeps clothes fresh and insect free.
2. Bring in a garment with stains ASAP to prevent the further setting of the stain.
3. Never put a stained garment away. The warmth of a wardrobe as well as general exposure to nature or artificial light, allow for a stain to set more quickly.
4. Do not iron stained or soiled clothes. This also causes stains to set.
5. Do not attempt to remove a stain at home without testing the garment for colorfastness.
6. Never rub a stain- blot the area to avoid spreading or you may remove color from the fabric.
