By law, all garments are required to have a care label indicating the method (or lack thereof) that the garment can be cleaned. These instructions must ensure that when followed, they will cause no harm to the garment. The instructions must also warn about certain procedures that may cause harm.
Some garments, no matter how expensive, have care labels that are incorrect. Usually this occurs when a garment is assembled from different materials – one material matches the care label while the other does not.
Some care labels are very specific. Swanson's is one of the very few cleaners around to offer all of the following services in addition to normal dry cleaning and laundry:
Dry Clean – Low Moisture - (our normal setting, few cleaners can do this)
Dry Clean – Low Heat - (our normal setting, few cleaners can do this)
Often times care labels offer only one method of cleaning while the garment may easily be cleaned by other methods. At Swanson's, we know the appropriate techniques and when to use them.
