Cleaning

You need a reliable cleaner that provides consistently excellent, personalized service. Pratt Abbott is Maine’s oldest and best-respected cleaner for a reason. Many of our customers’ families have been putting their clothing in our care for generations. Because we care, we provide ecofriendly, 100% "perc-free" cleaning for all clothes.

Here are a few of our most popular services:


Dry Cleaning Services

Pratt Abbott is the only cleaner in Maine using the GreenEarth® Cleaning process. This environmentally-friendly process uses silicone (a natural material made from beach sand) to clean clothes gently, yet effectively. As a result, your clothes are cleaner, softer and fresher than ever before (and free of the infamous "dry cleaning smell.") As a Sanitone® Certified Master Drycleaner, Pratt Abbott is part of a select group that uses Sanitone's superior soaps to gently clean, while reviving the colors and textures in your shirts, dresses, coats, sweaters and more. We also pay expert attention to stain removal, pressing and button protection, so your clothing looks it’s best—and so do you.


Shirt Laundry

Get your shirts or blouses cleaned and crisply pressed to make a great impression. Pratt Abbott uses Sanitone’s exclusive Platinum Shirt & Laundry Detergent, a concentrated detergent with color-safe bleach that produces superior results for our customers while saving water and reducing handling. We guarantee that all buttons will be intact, colors will be bright, whites will be white and all removable stains will be gone.


Wet Cleaning Services

In addition to our nontoxic dry cleaning using the GreenEarth Cleaning process, Pratt Abbott is pleased to provide wet cleaning services to our customers. Wet cleaning is a method of cleaning clothes that takes advantage of water-based soaps and our state-of-the-art washing machines that can be programmed to precisely determine the mechanical action, water and drying temperature, moisture levels in the dryer, and water and detergent volume. The result is a washing and drying cycle suited to each fabric’s needs.
