Also known as the “Hub,” the Lapels Cleaners facility with retail is the foundation of your dry cleaning enterprise. Our environmentally friendly facility houses state of the art equipment that is powered by the World’s only 100% environmentally non-toxic dry cleaning products. The back operations are separated by a wall so you can service your customers upfront in a friendly reception space.
What does it mean to be a 100% green dry cleaning franchise? It means Lapels partners with Greenearth® Cleaning, committed to minimizing garment care’s impact on the planet. The Greenearth® cleaning process uses liquid silicone in place of petrochemicals. Essentially liquified sand, silicone is non-hazardous and non-toxic to the environment. When released to the environment, it safely breaks down into the three natural elements it is made from: sand (SiO2), trace amounts of water, and carbon dioxide. The result is safe for the air, water, and soil. And of course, it’s safe for people, too.
As an alternative to dry cleaning, Lapels also offers non-toxic environmentally safe wet cleaning. This process utilizes computer-controlled washing machines and biodegradable soaps and conditioners and finishes with a dry process using special moisture sensitive dryers.
