Wet Cleaning Demo Day - setup

If you are a cleaner, you may have heard about the new Toxics Use Reduction Act designation of perc as a Higher Hazard Substance. To learn more about what this means, please read the Higher Hazard Substance Letter from MassDEP.

There are a number of alternatives to perchloroethylene for garment cleaning, but many of them have environmental, health and safety concerns, or have not been thoroughly studied. Of the available alternatives, wet cleaning and CO2 have the fewest hazards associated with them.

We recognize that you have a choice of cleaning processes and agents. Our goal is to encourage you to make the switch to wet cleaning or CO2. These safer alternatives not only protect your health and the environment, but also create a “green” niche for your business. Switching to wet cleaning can be a great business decision. The environment, your customers, you and your staff, and your bottom line will benefit from a switch to a truly environmentally friendly alternative to perc.
