    We check for tears, wearing, loose or missing buttons and mark for existing stains for pre spotting.

    There are hundreds of different fabrics in the world today. Each has its own chemical makeup, and what is used is critical. The trained eye of the spotter has to fully understand which of twenty plus products to use on the garment and what degree of steam and vacuum is required.

    Once the garments are ready for dry cleaning, they are sorted by colour and fabric content and placed in the DC machine.

    Another thing that sets SMARTY PANTS Dry Cleaners apart is that we do complete our garments. Loose or missing buttons and loose hems are fixed at no cost. If there is a problem needing your evaluation, we simply call and ask your permission.
