Adding wet cleaning to your dry cleaning plant can lead to a healthier planet without sacrificing quality. Many customers would love the choice to have their garments cleaned in a more gentle process that is better for the planet. Here are a few reasons you need to wet clean:

Wet cleaning is environmentally friendly.

A completely natural and very gentle process, wet cleaning is an easy solution to reduce exposure to toxic chemicals in your daily life. Wet cleaning is an environmentally friendly, solvent-free process. Cleaning with water and biodegradable cleaning agents, specific water and energy consumption, and detergent consumption is lower than household cleaning. There is no risk of air or soil pollution. The quality of wastewater from wet cleaning is similar to that of domestic wastewater, and wet cleaning does not require distillation or residue removal, meaning significant cost savings; Therefore, wet cleaning of easy-care textiles can be offered at lower prices than dry cleaning.

Wet cleaning is safe.

Wet cleaning is safe, biodegradable, and sustainable, saving water, energy, and money in the process.

Kreussler’s LANADOL wet cleaning products meet the requirements of the “Blue Angel” environmental award and meet the growing environmental awareness of environmentally conscious customers where cleanliness is important.

Wet cleaning prolongs the life of garments.

Wet cleaning prolongs the life of garments and textiles with its gentle process with a professional wet cleaning machine programmed for maximum clean with minimal stress. Keeping our garments longer and buying less new will help our planet.
