How Often to Dry Clean a Suit
There is no one-size-fits-all approach
to answering the age-old question as
to how often you should have your
suit dry cleaned.
There are several factors that
determine the amount of time that
should pass before sending these
garments out for cleaning services.
Experts suggest that you have dry
cleaning services performed as little
as possible to keep the fabric intact
and prevent stretching or misshaping
from occurring. So, what does all this
Well, it is recommended that a
business suit you do not wear often be
cleaned only once or twice a year.
This will remove dirt, dust, stains and
odors from becoming locked into the
fibers and depleting the life of the suit
overall. Obviously, this amount of
time between cleanings will not be
sufficient if you wear the suit two or
three times a week.
While you don’t want to over do it,
suits worn regularly should be
cleaned more often. It is acceptable to
have regular wardrobe attire dry
cleaned approximately once a month.
Please note that if your clothing is the
victim of stains or strong odors, they
should be taken to the cleaners as
soon as possible to prevent set-in
problems from occurring.
Make sure you let the dry cleaner
know what has caused the stain so
they can get to work quickly to
remove it without delay.
