We provide extraordinary care for fine
garments & household textiles
Our normal turnaround time is one week on regular drycleaning,
shirt laundry and household textiles.
Here's an example: if you drop off your cleaning at our
fabricare facility on a Monday, your order will be ready for pickup
on the following Monday.
If you're a pickup and delivery client with a once a week
pickup/delivery schedule, say every Monday, we'll pick up on a
Monday and deliver the following Monday.
If you're a pickup and delivery client with a twice a week
pickup/delivery schedule, say Monday/Thursday, we'll pickup and
deliver twice a week. Monday's pickup will be delivered on the
following Monday; Thursday's pickup on the following Thursday.
Generally, one week.

Why, you may ask, don't we operate like ordinary cleaners? Why
can't you drop off your cleaning on a Monday by 9:00 and pick it up
that same day at 5:00? Or at the latest by 5:00 on the following
day? Why can't we pick up your cleaning on day 1 (say a Monday) and
deliver it on day 3 (say a Thursday)? And pick up your cleaning on
day 1 (say a Thursday) and deliver on day 3 (say a Monday)?
Because we don't -- and won't -- produce what drycleaning
industry experts call "bang and hang cleaning" or "ordinary
Bang and hang cleaning or ordinary cleaning essentially involves
tossing your cleaning into a machine, banging it out on a press,
hanging it on a hanger, stuffing it in a bag, and cramming it on
holding racks or shuttling it out the door. Believe it or not, this
is standard operating procedure at the vast
majority of ordinary cleaners, including those offering pickup and
To illustrate this, go back to our Monday/Thursday pickup and
delivery example, and examine what happens to your cleaning that's
picked up on a Thursday and delivered on a Monday by ordinary

evening or Friday morning. "Cleaned", "pressed" and "bagged" on
Friday. This way they're "right and ready" to be delivered on
Monday. (The same principle applies to cleaning picked up on a
Friday and delivered on a Tuesday.)
Just think about that for a second. That's nothing less than
same day, or at the very best, next day
Given this scenario, would you knowingly subject your
fine garments -- especially your designer, high fashion, specialty
and couture garments -- to same day or next day service

household textiles, faster isn't better. Never has been. Never will
Of course not!
So here's our dilemma: we can either focus all our resources on
consistently producing the finest cleaning in Arizona, or we can
deliver the same "bang and hang" cleaning offered by over four
hundred ordinary cleaners in the Valley.
In a hectic world of same day and next day service cleaning,
you can take comfort in the fact that we take the time to
do it right. Because when it comes to caring for your fine
garments and household textiles, faster isn't better. Never
has been. Never will be.
