Dry cleaning uses perchloroethylene as the working solution to clean clothing or other textiles.
Thus, the textile fibers do not shrink or wrinkle. In combination with the solution and stain remover chemicals, the dirt in the cloth fiber is removed.
Make sure to use dry cleaning only for items for which the manufacturer has given the appropriate warranty and guidance.
We do not use washing powders but only liquid detergents in our work.
We use the latest and greatest machines. The laundry that needs ironing will be ironed on a calender or on a special mannequin.
At the laundry at Maakri 23, you can wash and dry your laundry by yourself if you wish. For this, we have five sets of washing machines and dryers waiting for you. When contacting a service provider, you can purchase the use of the machine that is suitable for the weight of your laundry (the price includes both washing and rinsing agents). If necessary, you will be instructed by the service provider who will help you start the machine.
The average length of the wash cycle is 40-60 minutes. During this time, you can read the newspaper in our lounge and, if you wish, use the massage chair for an extra charge.
Impregnation prolongs the life of clothing and protects against stains. After dry cleaning, the garment is treated with water and dirt repellent. A special molecular layer that prevents the absorption of dirt and moisture is formed around the textile fiber, and the liquid flows off the fabric surface or can be easily removed with a white napkin. Do not use colored napkins, which may leave a color stain on light fabrics.
Protective treatments pay off many times and are very efficient as the items become more elastic, keep their shape better, and stay clean for much longer. The stains will not absorb into the fabric and are easily removable.
Impregnation does not affect the appearance of the object, the characteristics, or the breathability of the fabric. Neither does the impregnation cause allergies or hypersensitivity reactions. The protective agent remains in the fabric regardless of the weather. While washing, some of the material is removed but is activated again when the fabric dries. The durability of the impregnation layer is influenced by the wearing frequency of the object – the protective layer is worn by strong friction, e.g., knees and elbows in children’s clothes. We, therefore, recommend that the garments be impregnated on average after every two times of washing.
What to impregnate?
Trousers (so that winter salt welts would not absorb into the fabric), coats, suits, jackets, skirts, dresses, ties, etc. In summer, we recommend impregnating light clothes.
When bringing clothes to the service point for cleaning. private customers in Tallinn have the opportunity to order the delivery of clean clothes to their home or office. So you can save time on the pick up of the clothes. Ask the service provider for more information.
Many business customers use the laundry transportation service for transporting work clothes, textiles, or workers’ clothes to the laundry. The courier picks up the dirty clothes and brings back clean and ironed clothes and textiles.
As a tailor service, we provide shortening and narrowing of garments. For special requests, please contact the service provider.
