Do You Have to Dry Clean a Suit?

While not all suits require dry cleaning, it’s the safest method to ensure your suit maintains its shape, fabric integrity, and colour. Washing suits in a machine or by hand can lead to damage and premature wear. Dry cleaning by professionals like us in Coolock helps extend the life of your garments, ensuring they look their best for every occasion.

How Often Should a Suit Be Dry Cleaned?

The frequency of dry cleaning a suit depends on how often it’s worn. For regular wear, dry cleaning every three to four months is advisable. However, if you only wear your suit occasionally, once a season or even once a year might suffice. Always dry clean your suit immediately if it gets stained or emits odours.

Do Suits Shrink After Dry Cleaning?

Dry cleaning is specifically designed to clean clothes without water, using solvents to remove soil and stains. This process is very gentle on fabrics, which means your suits should not shrink when properly handled by professional dry cleaners like us in Coolock and Clondalkin.

What Happens If You Wash a "Dry Clean" Suit?

Washing a suit labelled “dry clean only” can alter its shape, size, and texture. Water can shrink and warp the fibres of a suit, leading to a poor fit and a diminished appearance. For best results, adhere to the care label instructions and opt for professional dry cleaning.

The Benefits of Professional Suit Dry Cleaning

Professional dry cleaning goes beyond simply cleaning your suit; it also preserves the fabric’s texture, prevents colour fading, and maintains the overall structure. With our convenient collection service within 3 km of Coolock and Clondalkin, keeping your suit in tip-top condition has never been easier. A 2-piece suit can be professionally cleaned for just €20, while a 3-piece suit costs only €24.

Tips for Maintaining Your Suit Between Dry Cleanings

To keep your suit looking fresh between professional cleanings, hang it on a padded or wooden hanger to maintain its shape. Use a garment steamer to remove wrinkles and refresh the fabric. Spot clean small stains immediately with a mild cleaning solution, and always ensure your suit is completely dry before storing to prevent mildew.
