Lapels Dry Cleaning Expands Clothing Restoration Services

jonathan ford 1140026 unsplashHANOVER, Mass. – Lapels Dry Cleaning, an innovative, environmentally friendly dry cleaning company headquartered in Hanover, Massachusetts, recently expanded its restoration clothing services department to better serve disaster restoration specialists, insurance companies, police, fire and other organizations who recover clothing from fires, floods and other disasters.

“Many of the larger restoration companies have expanded their services with garments to include ozone room treatment and storage of household garments and are now in need of outsourcing the dry cleaning or wet cleaning and pressing of these garments. With our sustainable and hypo allergenic cleaning process and plants around the country, we are a trusted partner for these services,” said Kevin Dubois, CEO of Lapels Dry Cleaning. “Insurance companies and disaster restoration specialists have found this to be a valuable service because instead of paying replacement costs for an entire wardrobe, clothes can be restored for a reasonably small fee.”

“Things like fires, floods and other events can be devastating to a household. In some cases, priceless, irreplaceable items are damaged. While clothes are certainly replaceable it can certainly provide a little comfort to household members if by utilizing our restoration services that we can salvage some familiar items during a time of duress,” said Dubois.

Lapels has pioneered its eco-friendly dry cleaning experience over the past two decades. Part of that effort includes a partnership agreement with GreenEarth®, the world’s only 100 percent environmentally non-toxic cleaning alternative. Using these kinds of solutions 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.
