Don't have time to drop off your garments? Don't worry, we'll pick them up!
Dry Cleaning is a time tested, solvent based process, which utilizes advanced chemistry to dissolve grease, and to lift and remove organic & inorganic stains. When it comes to soil removal, dry cleaning is one of your most effective cleaning options; many garments can only be effectively restored by dry cleaning. However, wet cleaning can also be utilized to complement the dry cleaning process, as the make-up of some garments necessitates a more customized care process.
Wet cleaning is an environmentally friendly method of garment care. Wetcleaning utilizes gentle organic soaps and surfactants to coat the fibers of fabrics which allows water soluble stains to dissolve – while protecting the fabrics from swelling and shrinking. The wetcleaning process allows our garment-care specialists to clean and dry your clothing to a predetermined moisture percentage based on fabric content. This is quite advantageous, as most fabrics must not be dried 100% – this is where shrinkage usually occurs. Furthermore, intricate beadwork and sequins can be cleaned much more effectively by way of wet cleaning; as it is gentle on these delicate appliqué.

Think back to a time when you splurged and stayed in an expensive hotel suite for the night.

Wedding Gown Cleaning, Preservation & Restoration
Busy Bee’s Wedding Gown Cleaning and Preservation service is all about customer satisfaction. We understand completely that a wedding is a momentous occasion in a couple’s life. As the wedding dress is one of the most concrete mementos of this event, it is understandable that you want it to be in pristine condition before it is boxed for storage. Our technicians will ensure that your wedding gown is unblemished, pressed to perfection, and preserved for the future.
Effective stain removal is one of the cornerstones of a professional dry cleaning facility. Our vast array of stain specific solutions, in conjunction with both dry cleaning and wet cleaning processes allows us to remove an impressive range of spots and stains. We have been successful in restoring 90 year wedding dresses, blood soaked clothes from automobile accidents, and even waiters’ tuxedos that have been subjected to a wayward plate of food. We love the challenge, and have provided “jaw dropping” results in the past.
Professional Pressing and Finishing
The first major improvement in dry cleaning pressing and finishing equipment in the last 40 years has been “tensioning”. Garments are gently held in place while heated air is blown through the garment from the inside. The upgrade from simple form finishers to tensioning form finishers is dramatic. Not only are your clothes pressed well, they are formed to the correct shape so your clothes hang on your body perfectly. This style of finishing is especially well suited to the recent increase of wet cleaning. The two systems work hand in hand to provide the best in cleaning, finishing, odor control and environmental stewardship.
