Dry Cleaning is a method of cleaning clothes without using water.  This methodology originated in 1885 and has improved immensely over the years.  Dry Cleaning usually involves a petroleum-based liquid solvent that is very effective at removing dirt and oil from your clothes.  If your clothes possess stubborn stains they find their way to the spotting board where they can be addressed accordingly. 

Atlas Dry Cleaners has been around since 1937 and we are very good at what we do.  You can trust your garments with us.

Atlas Dry Cleaners does offer same day service Monday - Friday and we have one simple request.  We ask that you have your garments to us by 10am if you want them ready by 2pm.  The process takes some time to get your garments looking spectacular so it's very important we are given the time to mark in your clothes, clean and press them appropriately and have them ready for pick-up.

Asking the right questions will help you find the best dry cleaners in your area.  Do not assume that all dry cleaners are alike because every dry cleaners has their own shortcomings.  I will list a few reasons that make Atlas Dry Cleaners one of the best in the Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati, OH area.


1. Services
  Atlas Dry Cleaners offers many services that include Free Pick-Up and Delivery, Same Day Service and On-Site Cleaning.  We also have a seamstress on site Monday - Friday.  If you have a garment that is leather, suede or fur that's fine too.  Have a wedding dress that needs to be cleaned and preserved?  No problem!

2. Process
  Look for a dry cleaners that has a dedicated spotter and dedicated inspector.  The quality improves immensely when you have an experienced spotter and someone that checks every garment before you receive it.  Look for a dry cleaners that pay employees by the hour.  Some dry cleaners incentivize employees by piece count per day and this can lead to a decrease in quality.  Human error is involved in the cleaning and pressing process so make sure your dry cleaners has a standard policy in place if your garment becomes compromised.  A good dry cleaners will always follow the care label to provide recourse for both parties, but things do happen and you want a dry cleaners that will make it right when things go wrong.

3. Reviews
  Always do your due diligence and see what your fellow customers say about the establishment you are considering.  Yelp, Google and Facebook are a good place to start.  You can also check Angie's List and local magazine and newspaper awards within your city.

Happy Hunting!

Before you store anything away be sure to wash and/or dry clean everything. The goal here is to get rid of any stains and odors before storing them away for spring and summer fun!

When you think about a storage area think about 4 key words: DRY, DARK, CLEAN and COOL.

A clean suitcase makes for a perfect storage spot.

Mothballs are effective, but they can be extremely harmful to children and pets. It’s not worth the risk. Try a lavender sachet instead.

Ask your local dry cleaners about free storage service. Atlas Dry Cleaners will store your clothes properly until you need them next year. When you get them back they will be cleaned, pressed and ready to go!
