About Us

The Fabric of the Community


Pratt Abbott is a dry cleaning and laundry company with 13 locations in Southern Maine.

We are Maine’s largest and most eco-friendly dry cleaner. When you choose us, all of your items are dry cleaned using the GreenEarth® Cleaning process, which is 100% petroleum and VOC-free. We also specialize in wedding dress cleaning and preservation, and are accredited by the Association for Wedding Gown Specialists. Learn more about our garment care services.

Pratt Abbott has a uniform and linen rental division that serves businesses throughout New England.

We provide hospitality and healthcare uniforms, as well as industrial and protective wear, logo apparel, and more. Our bed, bath, and kitchen linens are of the highest caliber, and our quality-control systems are first-rate. (This means you won’t have to reject our products due to stains, odors, discoloration, or wear and tear.) Learn more about uniform and linen rentals.
