FAQs

Why aren’t your prices listed on the website?

Generally each garment is unique and we treat them as such. The pricing of your garment is applied after it has been inspected by our experienced staff. We follow the care label instructions to ensure the proper cleaning method is applied for best results.

Details that require additional time and expertise that are factored into the price include fabric, embellishments, lining, and more. If you would like a quote on an item prior to cleaning, our customer service representatives would be happy to provide one after inspection.

Why was I asked to sign a waiver form?

While we strive for perfection, there are a limited number of situations where we recognize the increased risk of damage during the cleaning process. In these cases, we request that a waiver be signed so that you fully understand the risks associated with processing that particular garment.

You can be assured that the garment will be processed with extreme care.

Are you Eco Friendly? Do you use PERC?

A leader in guiding the clothing care industry on environmentally-friendly standards, environmental responsibility has long been a top priority at Anton’s. In all aspects of our business, we continuously seek new technologies and processes to strengthen our contribution to protecting the environment, our customers and our employees. We continue to strive to shrink our carbon footprint, while providing quality service at competitive prices.

Our equipment replacement plan is based on an ongoing process of analyzing and researching environmentally friendly alternative drycleaning fluids. Anton’s Cleaners has installed Green Earth™ and/or EcoSolv® fluid dry cleaning machines in all locations. We are proud to be 100% PERC-free.

Why do beads and sequins cost more?

Beads, sequin and among other embellishments may affect the final price of your cleaning garment. To ensure proper cleaning, we often pretest embellishments to ensure it can withstand the cleaning process. These details require more time and care by our experienced staff and in turn may incur a small detailing fee.

What is detailing and why am I charged for it?

Each garment is unique and we treat them as such. We follow the care label instructions to ensure the proper cleaning method is applied for best results. Details that require additional time and expertise that are factored into the price include special fabrics, embellishments, lining, and more.

Certain materials require more care than others and they are priced as such. A few examples include:

  • Silk and rayon require more labor and detail when pressed as well as for stain removal.
  • Down requires twice as long in a dryer as other fiber fills.
  • Cashmere requires delicate handling.

Anton’s offers the best in clothing care at competitive prices. We have an ongoing equipment replacement plan and training of our staff to ensure the best possible results.

What is depilling?

Over time fibers in yarns break apart and form little balls called pills. This often happens in areas where friction or abrasion occurs most, at the sleeves and sides. We can remove pills through depilling. Depilling does not harm the garment.

Why are women’s shirts more expensive than men’s?

We don’t charge differently based on gender. A standard button-down shirt without darts is the same price regardless of gender.

Why didn’t the stain come out?

If a stain has been sitting on a garment for an extended period, it may set into the fabric and becomes harder to remove.

In some instances, we will be able to try additional methods to remove a stain, however we will require you signing a waiver to do so (customer accepts the risk). While we strive for perfection, there are a limited number of situations where we recognize the increased risk of damage during the cleaning process. In these cases, we request that a waiver be signed rather than charge a premium. You can be assured that the garment will be processed with extreme care.

What is the turnaround time on Housewares and other specialty items?

We take special care in making sure your households, linens, and other specialty items are properly cleaned and cared for. The process takes approximately two weeks but can vary based on the complexity of your item. Please check with your preferred Anton’s location directly for turnaround estimate.
