Art Cleaners Won the 2022 Boulder County Gold in the Dry Cleaning Category
Art Cleaners, a company based in Boulder, CO, is happy to announce that they have won the 2022 Boulder County Gold Award in the Dry Cleaning category. The company is a provider of dry cleaning in Boulder and neighboring areas using a procedure that is odor-free, eco-friendly and won’t harm the fabrics and the environment. They employ a GreenEarth Cleaning procedure that utilizes a one-of-a-kind silicone technology rather the usual petrochemical-based method. Most dry cleaners use petrochemical solvents with around 70 percent of them employing perc or perchloroethylene, which is a potential human carcinogen and has been classified by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a water and air toxin.
The award giving body said, “It is, of course, more important than ever to help save our beloved planet. Environmental degradation has been happening for centuries, and while the powers that be may do little to stop it, we take comfort in Boulder’s local businesses doing their part. Take Art Cleaners for example. Its non-polluting, non-toxic GreenEarth cleaning process is easy on your clothes and the environment—just one of the many reasons our voters say they’re the best dry cleaners, with several convenient locations around Boulder County. At the Art Cleaners nearest you, not only will you save your clothes, but our world in the process.”
Art Cleaners uses two types of environmentally friendly textile cleaning processes: GreenEarth dry cleaning and 100 percent professional wetcleaning. Professional wetcleaning is the usual cleaning with water but the process they take is different from home laundry, because they employ computer-controlled cleaning machines and high tech finishing equipment that ensure the appropriate shape and size of the fabrics are maintained. They employ this process for clothes that can be safely cleaned with water. And for the rest, they utilize the GreenEarth Cleaning process. This procedure uses pure liquid silicone rather than petrochemicals. Silicone is nontoxic and non-hazardous and the EPA has decided that it is not necessary to regulate the use of silicone. This is practically liquefied sand and when released to the environment, it will just break down into its three natural elements and trace quantities of CO2 and water. Liquid silicone is a base ingredient in many shampoos, cosmetics, conditioners, and lotions, and considered to be safe for people.
In addition to environmentally friendly dry cleaning, they also provide professional alterations. This means that they can provide solutions for torn seams, broken zippers, waistbands that no longer fit, hemlines that have to be adjusted, and more. Making adjustments to clothes so that they can still be used in another environmentally friendly process because it means less wastes.
Art Cleaners can also clean and restore all types of fabrics in the home, including comforters, duvets, pillows, stuffed animals, drapes, and more. They can also clean and revive quality leathers and suede. They can also provide cleaning, dyeing, finish restoration and fix any tears, rips and replacement of linings.
