The Greener Cleaner
Long Cleaners cares about our community and environment.
In the eyes of the general public, Drycleaners don’t usually have the best reputation for the environment. However, Long Cleaners has changed the Dry Cleaning world as we know it.
“We are pleased that Long Cleaners puts a priority on using equipment that improves the quality of the air in the Ohio communities in which it operates,”
State Sen. Peggy Lehner, (R- Kettering)
ZERO toxic waste, reduced energy use, better clean ability, and odorless is a few words to describe Long Cleaners new K4 Solvent Dry Cleaning system.
The use of organic solvents such as System K4 is the future of Dry Cleaning offering sustainability, improved efficiency, and better overall cleaning says Tom Perry, owner of Long Cleaners.
System K4 is the first alternative to classic dry cleaning which cleans as well, if not better, than perc, while being neither a dangerous material nor hazardous substance in accordance with CLP (classification, labeling, and packaging) on top of its excellent environmental profile. K4 is ultra pure, ensuring the best cleaning with no odor.
K4 is a solvent based on corn grown by about 500 family owned farms in the heartland of America, which is converted into n- butanol through a low energy, minimal waste process. Due to the use of a bio-based process, System K4 has earned the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Certified Biobased Product lable. It is the first and only bio-based product in the dry cleaning industry, 88% of it being naturally sourced.
Long Cleaners is a family owned and operated dry cleaning company with a commitment to develop better practices and systems to reduce any environmental impact and produce a superior product for our customers.
Starting back in 2007, Long Cleaners began using alternative dry-cleaning solutions that are gentle on garments, leave no odor, and are not considered hazardous by the EPA. In fact we were the first in the Dayton area to adopt the IPURA Cleaning System featuring DF 2000, a nontoxic and biodegradable solution. It’s the premiere solution in our industry today, and we’re constantly on the lookout for even more improvements that will keep us “The Greener Cleaner.”
