Easton, PA 18040 (I-Newswire) September 17, 2012 - The old standard method of using the petroleum-based solvent, Perchloroethylene (Perc), is on the way out and new methods of green dry cleaning are coming to the forefront . Will Jean-Baptiste, owner of Dashing Valet, Dry Cleaners Easton PA, seems to agree, "In 2012, we decided to go Green after realizing that Environmentally Friendly dry cleaning is the future of dry cleaning as the public is becoming more aware of the impact we have on our environment and are trending to a more organic lifestyle."
As a matter of fact, perc is seriously being considered for phase out; hence, it would be best to look up green dry cleaning outlets that are now using green solutions to eliminate perc emissions. The shift towards green dry cleaning is headed by California, where in January, the state committed to phasing out perc by 2023, offering grant money to cleaners that switch from perc to CO2 or wet cleaning. Leading proponents of Perc say the chemical is amazing at cleaning delicate clothing like silk, cashmere, and wool without damaging the textile. However, Green dry cleaning without the chemical perchloroethylene, or perc, can still get your clothes clean and fresh.
Perc is a wet method of dry cleaning that requires special storage and containment due to its hazardous characteristics. Perc is considered to be a probably carcinogen by the World Health Organization and the U.S. Environmental Agency. Perc is also classified by the EPA as a possible to probable human carcinogen. Perc can enter the body through drinking water contamination, dermal exposure, or most frequently, inhalation. Perc is a central nervous system depressant.
More people are considering green dry cleaning, and the non-use of the dry cleaning solvent called perchloroethylene or “perc”. The two most common green dry cleaning methods are carbon dioxide cleaning and Green Earth. Liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) appears to be the most practical green dry cleaning solvent to replace perchloroethylene. Carbon Dioxide or CO2 requires purchasing new green dry cleaning equipment, since it is not compatible with conventional machines. The built-in advantage of Green Earth is that it is the only green dry cleaning system that doesn't cost any more to use.
The Owners at Dashing Valet Dry Cleaners are committed to being environmentally responsible by embracing this new green dry cleaning technology. Not waiting for an eventual nationwide ban, the owners of this East coast Dry Cleaning and laundry service is taking preemptive action. Unfortunately, the ban of Perc will cause place lot of pressure on local "mom and pop" shops to either upgrade or face fines, but with society as a whole slowly moving towards new greener initiatives, the choice to do so will be critical to their future survival. Companies that are taking action now will be able to position themselves as the less toxic alternative.
