The Future of Dry Cleaning grows in Greater Phoenix
Lapels Dry Cleaning locations in Gilbert and Chandler switch over to GreenEarth
October 16, 2019 // Franchising.com // GILBERT, AZ, CHANDLER, AZ, FL and HANOVER, MA - Lapels Dry Cleaning, an innovative, environmentally friendly dry cleaning company headquartered in Hanover, Massachusetts, announced the conversion of two of its locations in the greater Phoenix area to GreenEarth®. GreenEarth® is the dry cleaning industry’s only non-toxic cleaning alternative.
The two locations, Lapels Dry Cleaning of Gilbert at 2586 S Val Vista Dr, Gilbert and Lapels Dry Cleaning of Chandler at 1085 W Queen Creek Rd, Chandler, made the switch earlier in 2019.
“Lapels Dry Cleaning made a commitment to bring an environmentally friendly method of dry cleaning to the communities it serves. You simply don’t get more environmentally friendlier than GreenEarth®,” said Jeff Kline, owner of Lapels Dry Cleaning of Gilbert and Chandler. “GreenEarth® is virtually odorless. So, no matter how challenging the dry cleaning job, clothes will come back smelling like a beautiful day with no detergent smell lingering.”
GreenEarth® is made from 100 percent pure D5 liquid silicone, which is a by-product of sand and is safe for people and the environment. It’s low surface tension allows it to gently penetrate fabric fibers and carry away dirt in a way that is gentle on fabric, making it a safe, effective way to clean even the most delicate garments. Unlike many other cleaning methods, GreenEarth® won’t cause shrinkage, colors stay bright and clear and clothes stay newer looking longer.
For all of these reasons and more, Lapels Dry Cleaning uses GreenEarth® at its newer locations and for its Restoration Services. With GreenEarth, Lapels can offer a better end result to disaster restoration specialists, insurance companies, police, fire and other organizations who recover clothing from fires, floods and other disasters.
“You might think it impossible for an item damaged by smoke or water to be salvageable without the smell you were trying to get out or the smell of the detergent you used to get the smell out,” said Kline. “Like I said, with GreenEarth®, there is no smell.”
Lapels has pioneered its eco-friendly dry cleaning experience over the past two decades. With its partnership agreement with GreenEarth® and the latest technology in equipment, Lapels is one of the few dry cleaners able to boast that there is no hazardous waste in their process.
Lapels Dry Cleaning also sets itself apart with its customer service. Lapels customers are greeted to a warm and inviting reception area, with friendly customer service representatives, and alteration services.
