One year on and there’s no looking back for drycleaner turned wetcleaner

Existing Renzacci UK customer, 2Hr Smart Clean, was looking to replace their old Renzacci perc drycleaning machine, as it was approaching the end of its working life.

Shop owner, Atique Qureshi, was open to suggestions for the replacement – whether it be another perc machine or a move to an eco-friendly wetcleaning alternative. To help him make a final decision Qureshi was invited down to Renzacci UK’s showroom and testing facility in Feltham to meet technical sales manager and master lagooner, Michael J Michael, to trial the system. Being a highly experienced drycleaner Qureshi was sceptical about wetcleaning – shrinkage, finishing processes and stain removal being his biggest concerns.

After trialling a mix of his own garments through the wetcleaning process Qureshi was convinced – the system’s ability to clean delicate garments, its quicker processing time and the capacity to do both drycleaning and laundry in the same machine left him surprised. Michael also stressed that the system, which is compact in size and negates the need for additional machinery for the various cleaning stages, would free him up space in the shop and double his existing processing capacity.

Qureshi went on to order an Electrolux Professional W5180H lagoon washer and TD6-20 lagoon dryer, alongside PONY’s best-in-class finishing equipment – Angel and CCP, Formplus jacket former and MPT-D trouser former. Renzacci UK also designed a new shop layout to optimise space for the drycleaner. Now, the equipment is located at the back of the shop, allowing for a friendly, welcoming reception area at the front.

Qureshi said: “It’s been a year since installing my new wetcleaning machine and I’ve not once looked back. I have increased space in my shop, I haven’t experienced a single colour run and I’ve noticed a remarkable difference in the cleaning quality – not a stain left in sight.” “My running costs are lower; with my drycleaning machine, my electric costs for all equipment was in excess of £600 per month, now it’s only £90 per month. “We’ve completely moved away from solvent-based drycleaning, which is the best decision I’ve ever made.
