Winning SMART System helps Floridia dry cleaning industry

Winning Brands Corporation announces that help has arrived in Florida for American dry cleaners who face increasingly tough regulations regarding the use of controversial dry cleaning solvent Perchloroethylene (Perc).

A new 100% perc-alternative garment cleaning operation utilizing Winning Brands' SMART Wet Cleaning Solutions instead of Perc opens its doors the first week of May in Orlando as a replacement to conventional dry cleaning.

The significance of this development for America's policy makers is high because the new system improves upon the cleaning performance previously associated with traditional dry cleaning but uses no Perc whatsoever.

The new facility, JC Valet, is the result of 3 years research and planning by its owners and Solvent Free Solutions Inc, the distributor and installation team for Winning Brands' SMART Wet Cleaning Solutions.

Construction is completed and equipment is being installed now by the Solvent Free Solutions Team. The set-up team will finish training of the new owners and staff over the next 3 weeks.

Various levels of government, commercial landlords and health professionals have grappled with the question of what to do about the widespread use of Perc.

New legislation phasing out the use of Perc has been passed in California, with additional states watching closely and considering similar legislation.

The concept of professional Wet Cleaning has been considered a desirable alternative by such decision makers, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, but they have been confronted with confusing information from Perc advocates as to whether professional Wet Cleaning can perform as well as Perc-based dry cleaning.
