Axess Cleaners
  • This is a direct message from the CDC: Advises that the Dry Cleaning Process, which includes cleaning & pressing [ IS ] effective on most viruses. This includes laundry and press on high heat, which in addition to Dry Cleaning are our core practices. Moreover, there is little chance for virus transfer of viruses on clothes, especially after the full cleaning procedure. Although this is just a notice from the CDC, it’s not direct advice and measure in getting rid of or curing anything. We highly recommend doing your own research. But such practices are shown to be an effective and cautionary measure.
