For over fifty years, American Cleaners has been providing quality dry-cleaning at a great price in the St. Louis area. Below is a brief description of the services we provide.
We can dry-clean most garments in your wardrobe. Dry-cleaning is a process of cleaning clothing and textiles using a solvent other than water. Your clothes are cleaned in a safe solution, the solution is extracted, and your garments are steam pressed. At American Cleaners we care for the environment and have changed from using “perc” to using an environmentally friendly solvent at almost every location.
We offer same day service on most dry-cleanable garments – times vary by location. (Excludes Sundays and holidays.)
Our state-of-the-art shirt presses offer the best looking press job on men’s business shirts in the St. Louis area. Shirts are washed with soap and your preference of starch. After the shirts are washed, they are pressed while wet. Be sure to let us know whether you prefer your shirts on a hanger or folded.
Some ladies blouses can be safely commercially laundered. This process is not the same as your home washer. For a ladies blouse to be commercially laundered, it must be a plain shirt that is similar in size and style to a men’s business shirt. Blouses that do not fit that description can be damaged in a commercial shirt laundry and should be dry-cleaned.
Some shirts are not suitable for a commercial laundry – shirts with pearl snap buttons, corduroy shirts, shirts with leather patches, wool shirts, silk or rayon shirts, shirts that do not have a button at the neck, some small sizes of shirts, shirts with ruffles – they should be dry-cleaned for best results.
We can also launder and press jeans (all laundered pants are starched), lab coats, tablecloths, and napkins.
We offer a variety of reasonably priced repair services to help make your clothes fit and look their best. We can hem your slacks, replace a zipper, mend a seam, and most other garment repairs. Processing a repair takes about a week. Garments must be cleaned by American Cleaners before being repaired unless the garment is brand new, unworn, with tags attached.
American Cleaners can clean most of your household items, including comforters, draperies, pillow shams, dust ruffles, duvet covers, and sleeping bags.
