What is ON-SITE DRY Cleaning?

Dry Cleaning is the use of solvents to remove soil and stains from fabric. It is called "drycleaning" because the solvents contain or no water and do not penetrate the fibres as water does.

Drycleaning solvent is not harmful to any fabric, and is often the only safe method for cleaning many types of fabrics.

Natural fibres like cotton, wool and silk can shrink, distort, and lose colour when washed in water but dryclean easily. Drycleaning helps to return curtains to their original condition by using precautions to prevent shrinkage, loss of colour, and change of texture or finish.

Can you give me a quote without seeing the curtains, blinds, upholstery, ect ?

Our staff will be able to give you an estimate over the phone if you can supply us with the measurements.  As fabrics vary in size and condition therefore it is only possible to give a quote once we have seen it.  A more accurate estimate can be given if you know if the fabric requires wet or dry cleaning.

The following measurements are required for an estimate:

Curtains - length and width of a drop as well as the number of drops per window

Roman Blinds - length and width of blinds

Venetian blinds – length and width as well as width of blade (15mm, 25mm or 50mm)

Vertical blinds – length and number of slates (strips)

Upholstery – number of seats (1-seater, 2-seater, etc.), type of chair (dining-room chair – back and/or seat) etc.

Mattresses – single, double, king-size or queen-size

How many cleaners do I expect and how long will it take?

Usually our cleaning teams consist of a supervisor and 2-3 cleaners. This may vary depending on the amount of cleaning to be done.

Our office staff can give you an idea of how long you can expect it to take and when the supervisor has done an assessment they can give you a more accurate estimation.

Do you have a minimum fee?

We have a minimum call-out fee of R 250.00 excl VAT.

How do I pay?

You pay by cash, cheque or Internet payment upon completion of the work.

How far in advance do I need to book?

To guarantee the time and day that suits you, we suggest booking as soon as possible but 7-8 days is usually enough.  We can fit in smaller jobs in a shorter lead-time though.

Do you have references?

Please see Testimonies

Are you insured?

Yes, all work is covered by Public Liability

What do I have to do?

Not much, once you have met one of our supervisors and showed him/her what you would like done, you can leave them to it. You do not need to supply any cleaning materials or supervise them.  So you can get on with your day!

 

If you are unable to meet us there, we are happy to pick up keys and give you a call once we have had a look around.

How often should a mattress be cleaned?

The recommended service internal is once every six months.  Dust mites thrive in this environment. 

Cleaining a mattress won't offer any cure to allergies.  It will however certainly reduce the intensity and frequency of allergies. 

The likelihood of helping an asthma sufferer is also good.
