Dry Cleaning Near Portland
Alpine 24 Hour Laundromat offers high quality "green" dry cleaning services that are environmentally friendlier than traditional dry cleaning. Green dry cleaning refers to any dry cleaning method that does not involve using perc, a liquid chemical used for commercial degreasing and deodorizing to clean fabrics. Perc is a synthetic, volatile organic compound (VOC) that poses a health risk to humans and a threat to the environment. Therefore, perc is not only hazardous for the dry cleaners or those that bring home dry cleaned clothes, Perc can also get into our air, water, and soil during the cleaning, purification, and waste disposal phases of dry cleaning, according to the EPA.
Alternative solvents exhibit less persistence in the environment, potential to accumulate in the human body or the environment, or toxicity to aquatic life than perc. Most also appear to be safer overall to human health. And that is why Alpine is partnered with a dry cleaner that uses these alternative methods.
