Services from A to Z
Alterations: Whether it's a repair you need or just "a slight adjustment", you won't find a better fit than our experienced tailors. We know clothing, and appreciate quality workmanship as much as you do. Our professional skills, materials, and techniques make it right for you every time.
Buttons: We repair loose buttons or sew on new ones, if necessary, at no extra charge.
Dry cleaning, the process itself: Dry cleaning uses fluids to remove soils and stains from fabrics. Among the advantages of dry cleaning is its ability to dissolve grease and oils in a way that water cannot. Natural fibers such as wools and silks dry clean beautifully, but can shrink, distort, or lose color when washed in water. Synthetic fibers like polyester also respond well to dry cleaning. Dry cleaning helps to return garments to a "like-new" condition using precautions to prevent shrinkage, loss of color, and change of texture or finish.
Feel the Difference: Treat yourself to the crisp fresh feeling of professionally finished bed linens. At Eastgate Cleaners we launder all your linens...the old fashioned way, with just a hint of starch. We then press them on our linen flatwork ironer. We take a damp sheet and dry it with one pass on the Ironer. We are the only people to give your sheets that smooth, crisp feeling. Finally, your bed set is returned on a linen hanger or neatly folded to put away.
Finishing: Thanks to special pressing equipment, professional finishing gives garments a crisp, wrinkle-free, like-new appearance that can't be beat. There are no rumples or creases out of place. Plus, by taking your clothes to the dry cleaner, you don't have to spend your weekend standing over an ironing board and a hot iron.
Household textiles: Cleaners don't just clean clothes. Many cleaners also process household items such as blankets, comforters, decorative pillows, rugs, and even upholstery and draperies.
Inspection: Before they return a garment to you, we conduct an inspection to make sure your order has met our own and your expectations. If we spot a problem, the garment is sent back to receive further attention. Safeguards like this help ensure that your clothes will look their best when you come to pick them up.
Knowledge of fabrics and fashions: You may know what rayon, silk, and cotton are, but what about angora, faille or seersucker? There are numerous fabrics and fibers that dry cleaners must know about in order to care best for the clothes they receive. Each fabric can respond positively or negatively depending on the treatment administered.
Laundry: We also have commercial laundry departments where we process shirts, cotton pants, and other items. With the convenience and superior level of pressing that comes with commercial laundry, it won't just be your dry clean-only clothes that look like a million bucks. Your business casual and casual attire will look their best, too.
Leather and Suede Care: Leather is one of nature's most versatile and sensual materials. It offers comfort and durability in a variety of beautiful finishes, textures and colors. We know leather; its characteristics, its value. The way it makes you look good and feel good like any luxurious item should. Today’s Leather fashions provide years of pleasure and long-lasting use. Through our experience we've learned the best methods for maintaining leather.
Neckties: Ties are often made of delicate fabrics (such as silk) and require special care. Whether you've spilled gravy on your favorite tie or are just looking to spruce it up, a high-quality dry cleaner is best equipped to clean it.
Odor removal: We specialize in odor removal and flood and fire restoration of water- or smoke-damaged items. We use ozone generators to do an ozone treatment. The contact between ozone and the odors embedded in the textiles causes oxidation to reoccur, resulting in the elimination of the odors and the release of oxygen. This is a safe and effective process.
Preservation: Wedding gowns, christening gowns, and other family heirlooms. Preservation is a special type of storage that helps prolong the life of a garment for years and years. We often say that we aren't just preserving a customer's garment, we're preserving a memory.
Quality: This is what we provide and you should expect from us. Accept no less.
Restoration: In addition to preservation, we specialize in the restoration of old wedding gowns, heirloom items, and antique textiles. These items often are very delicate and require great care. Restoration specialists have the expertise to take in these items, although the level they can restore them to depends on their condition at the time they are brought in. It is not uncommon, though, for a cleaner to restore a wedding gown originally worn by a bride-to-be's grandmother well enough that the bride can wear it in her own wedding.
Stain removal: We use complex procedures and special stain removal chemicals to remove stains. Stains are divided into two major categories: solvent-soluble stains and water-soluble stains. Different stains require different treatments, which stain removal technicians are trained to administer. Why risk a disaster using an over-the-counter "all-purpose" stain removal product or trying a "home remedy" when you could rely on our expert stain removal abilities?
Wash & Fold Service: We do laundry as well as we do dry cleaning! Your basic household laundry will come back clean and neatly folded, with a freshness you'll appreciate every day.
Zip in and out: That's how long it takes you to drop off and pick up your dry cleaning. With our complimentary express bag and after-hour drop box, it literally takes seconds to drop your order off. Again, convenience is paramount to good dry cleaning.
