BIGGIST ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY DRY CLEANERS IN NIAGARA REGION

Toxic Chemical?

PERC (Perchloroethylene) has been in use since the 1940's. Perc is the most common solvent and most aggressive cleaner. It can cause color bleeding/loss, especially at higher temperatures, and may destroy special trims, buttons, and beads on some garments. Better for oil-based stains (which account for about 10% of stains) than more common water-soluble stains (coffee, wine, blood, etc.). Perc is known for leaving a characteristic chemical smell on garments. A recent study conducted at Georgetown University shows perc, classified as carcinogenic to humans by the EPA, is retained in dry-cleaned clothes and that levels increase with repeat cleanings.
