National recognition

RAVE FabriCARE is the only dry cleaner in Arizona recognized as one of the nation's premier cleaners by non-compensated, independent, authoritative third parties.

These third parties include Alexander Kabbaz (recognized by Robb Report as the finest shirt maker in the world), Will Boehlke (internationally known style consultant, speaker and author of the widely-followed blog "A Suitable Wardrobe"), and Andy Gilchrist (Proprietor of Ask Andy About Clothes, the world's largest discussion forum devoted to fine garments and accessories).

Local recognition

The Arizona Republic cited RAVE FabriCARE as one of only six Scottsdale/Paradise Valley businesses that have developed strong reputations by focusing on the needs of a current market segment.

Readers of Phoenix Magazine voted RAVE FabriCARE "Best Drycleaner In The Valley".

Retailer recognition

We are referred by most of the Valley's upscale department stores, clothing boutiques and custom clothiers, and are the preferred drycleaning service provider for many.

These stores and their associates know who produces the "best work" in town.

The stores know RAVE FabriCARE because they regularly call on us to care for inventory that has become soiled, and for customer-owned garments that have been rejected as "uncleanable" or that have been improperly cleaned and/or finished by other cleaners.

Over the years, we've demonstrated that many so-called "uncleanable" garments were eminently cleanable, and we've saved many garments that were previously thought to be unsalvageable.

Their associates know RAVE FabriCARE because many are, themselves, clients of ours.

Industry-leading quality standards

We have detailed, written quality standards covering every facet of our drycleaning/wetcleaning and shirt laundry operations.

These standards result in the consistent delivery of extraordinary care for all your fine garments and household textiles. Every item. Every order.

Extraordinary drycleaning/wetcleaning

Our technical expertise and skill is unmatched anywhere in Arizona.

At RAVE FabriCARE, you can consistently expect:

  • Garments and household textiles that are exceptionally clean.
  • Spectactularly bright whites, creams and pastels (as long as they've always been cleaned at RAVE FabriCARE).
  • Colors that are rich and lustrous, without that "washed out", faded look (as long as they've always been cleaned at RAVE FabriCARE).
  • Renewed, revitalized fabric textures.
  • The softest, silkiest fabric feel, even on heavy cotton sweaters.
  • Garments that are meticulously finished. Inside and out. By hand. Not by machine.
  • Garments that are carefully and thoroughly inspected. From top to bottom. From inside to outside.
  • Garments that are individually and elegantly packaged.
  • And, of course, absolutely no drycleaning solvent smell. Or fragrance or perfume smell. Ever.

Extraordinary shirt laundry

We deliver the cleanest, brightest and finest hand-ironed shirt in the Southwest. And, unlike ordinary cleaners, we do this without brushing, bleaching, boiling and baking the life out of your shirts.

Specifically, we don't:

  • Scrub your collars and cuffs with nylon brushes
  • Wash your shirts in hot water
  • Use harsh, caustic industrial grade detergents
  • Add fabric-destroying bleach
  • Starch your shirts with cheap synthetic glue
  • Press your shirts by machine at the rate of 40 to 50 an hour
  • Return your shirts with puckered seams and wrinkled underarms
  • Crease your sleeves (unless specifically requested)
  • Stuff your shirts in a single, narrow poly bag.

Comprehensive range of other specialized fabricare services

In addition to drycleaning/wetcleaning and shirt laundry, we offer a comprehensive range of other specialized fabricare services designed to meet the needs of the most discriminating of clients.

In particular, very few cleaners can match our extraordinary care for designer, high fashion, specialty and couture garments.

Wide array of supporting conveniences

At RAVE FabriCARE, we offer a wide array of conveniences to support our specialized fabricare services.

These conveniences include local in-store service, local pickup and delivery service, nationwide clean by mail service, 24 hour drop-off, call ahead pickup service, drive through service, and client charge accounts.

State-of-the-art fabricare facility

Our fabricare facility is, without doubt, one of the very finest and best equipped facilities in the Southwest.

From the moment you step into our spacious fabricare facility, you'll recognize that there are major differences between our fabricare facility and the store fronts operated by ordinary cleaners. In particular...

  • The vast majority of ordinary cleaners are designed to meet the needs of their "average customer".
  • By contrast, our fabricare facility has been specially designed to meet the special handling needs of our client's designer, high fashion, specialty and couture garments.
  • The vast majority of ordinary cleaners are equipped and staffed to meet the needs of their "average customer".
  • By contrast, our fabricare facility has been specially equipped and staffed to meet the special handling needs of our client's designer, high fashion, specialty and couture garments.
  • The customer service counters and drive through lanes of the vast majority of ordinary cleaners are designed to get their customers in and out. In short order. It's an approach that's in perfect harmony with their same day, next day, and 3 day pickup and delivery approach to "garment care."
  • By contrast, our client service environment has been specially designed to be an inviting oasis in a hectic world of same day, next day, and 3 day pickup and delivery service cleaning. It's a difference you'll see, smell, hear and feel.

Safe Cleaning Guarantee

We are the only drycleaner in Arizona to offer you the Safe Cleaning Guarantee.

This means that we guarantee the safe cleaning of your garments, that you'll never be left adrift if a problem does arise, and you'll never be bounced to the retailer or manufacturer with an unserviceable garment.

Summary

Whether you use our services on a regular basis for all your cleaning needs, or only occasionally for that prized designer, high fashion, specialty or couture garment, you can trust RAVE FabriCARE to keep all your fine garments looking, feeling and smelling great. And to preserve your investment in those garments for as long as possible.
