The Ugly Truth About Dry Cleaning

Apr 21, 2015

If your clothes come back from the cleaners smelling like chemicals, they’re not actually clean.

Sure, the dirt’s gone. But that smell? That’s a toxic chemical your dry cleaner uses. And it’s “off-gassing” from your clothes into the air you and your family breathe.

New Skylark Plant Wins Major National Award

Jan 22, 2013

American Dry Cleaner Magazine recently named Skylark the best new dry cleaning Plant-On-Premises in the United States for 2012. The magazine cited several unique aspects of Skylark’s new store, including a 24-hour locker kiosk and multiple green cleaning systems (Liquid CO2, Greenearth, and Professional Wet Cleaning).

We are very proud to have received this honor given the many unique challenges we faced in converting a vacant, former auto parts store to a state-of-the-art dry cleaning plant and store. Thank you so much to the many people and organizations that helped bring this project to life.
