Clothing Restoration: For When You’re Ankle-Deep

Lapels expands restoration clothing services to better assist recovery personnel

HANOVER, Mass. — Lapels Dry Cleaning recently expanded its restoration clothing services department to, as it describes, “Better serve disaster restoration specialists, insurance companies, police, fire and other organizations who recover clothing from fires, floods and other disasters,” it reports.

“Many of the larger restoration companies have expanded their services with garments to include ozone room treatment and storage of household garments and are now in need of outsourcing the dry cleaning or wet cleaning and pressing of these garments,” says Kevin Dubois, CEO of Lapels Dry Cleaning.

“With our sustainable and hypo-allergenic cleaning process and plants around the country, we are a trusted partner for these services,” relates Dubois.

“Insurance companies and disaster restoration specialists have found this to be a valuable service because instead of paying replacement costs for an entire wardrobe, clothes can be restored for a reasonably small fee,” he notes.

“Things like fires, floods and other events can be devastating to a household,” DuBois continues. “In some cases, priceless, irreplaceable items are damaged.”

He adds that: “While clothes are replaceable, it can certainly provide a little comfort to household members if by utilizing our restoration services, we can salvage some familiar items during a time of duress.”

Lapels says it has, “pioneered its eco-friendly drycleaning experience over the past two decades. Part of that effort includes a partnership agreement with GreenEarth®, the world’s only 100 percent environmentally non-toxic cleaning alternative.”
