Protecting Our Environment

Perc is considered by the EPA to be an air and water toxin that is dangerous to human health. Exposure can lead to increased risk of cancer, reduced fertility, as well as eye, nose, and throat irritation. In spite of this, the National Institute of Occupation Safety and Health estimates that 85% of dry cleaners still use this 1940s era solvent.

At Koretizing Dry Cleaners Durham, we use professional organic cleaning methods with a hydrocarbon based solvent. These methods do not have any toxicity issues, they protect the environment, and they provide the best care for your clothes.

Some benefits of organic dry cleaning include: avoiding the use of toxic chemicals, no chemical odor, colors remain bright, and garments last longer. As a result, organic dry cleaning not only helps protect the environment, but it also leaves clothes undamaged, soft, and forever new.
