Getting Cleaner Local business Stony Dry Cleaners have been washing, cleaning and removing stains from our clothes and household items since 1993. They pride themselves on using up-to-date techniques & solvents to ensure the best possible stain removal as well as hygiene. Owner Stephen Clark explained; “Dry cleaning is more than just looking good, it’s also about hygiene and health. Bed bugs, for example, can trigger allergic reactions and asthma attacks so it’s important to keep bedding clean.” Stony Dry Cleaners clean duvets, both polyester and feather, at 40°C in an anti-bacterial detergent, along with a fabric conditioner. (Non-bio detergents available on request). This will kill 99.9% of bacteria including MRSA & E-coli. If you don’t clean your duvets be warned - a study found over 20,000 live house mites, along with their faeces in one duvet. After cleaning make sure you store you item in a breathable duvet cover not plastic bags to prevent moisture and mould growth. If you spill something or one of your children has an accident on the duvet, aim to get it to the cleaners as Feature soon as possible before any stain sets in. The other rule is don’t chop the cleaning instructions off as you risk damage to your items during the cleaning process. To get your duvet and pillow cleaned give Stony Dry Cleaners a call, prices depend on what you need cleaning and how quickly you need it returned. Stay clean with Stony Dry Cleaners full range of dry cleaning, laundry and ironing services – from express and same day to standard. You can also save time with their collection and delivery service.
