Fresh ‘n Press first opened its dry cleaning business in London in 1973. You can find our shop in South London at 405 Wharncliffe Road, between Emery and Devonshire.
As a family-owned operation in our second generation, we take great pride in offering exceptional personal service, attention to detail, competitive pricing and the fact that all work is done on the premises.
We’re especially proud of our environmentally-friendly business practices.
Awarded at a recent dinner held at the Best Western Plus Lamplighter Inn & Conference Centre here in London, the 2019 Consumer Choice Awards reflect top-ranked service as identified by statistically-supported independent market research. The award in the “Dry” Cleaners Category represents such attributes as brand reputation, business excellence and, most importantly to the Fresh ‘N Press team, customer satisfaction.
Going “Clean & Green”
In the 1990s, growing concerns about the environment and the health of our staff led us to make radical changes to our operation. In 1998 we became the first cleaners in London to adopt “wet cleaning” – a process that uses no harmful chemicals, emits no air pollution, and causes no water or soil contamination.
Not only is wet cleaning good for the environment – it’s good for your clothes! They come back odor-free, with none of that chemical “dry cleaner” smell, and our gentle process helps fabrics to last longer, too. In fact, a number of clothing stores recommend us because they know their customers’ expensive suits and outfits will receive the special attention and care they deserve!
Since then, we have looked for and implemented new initiatives to make our service “Clean & Green”. Our biodegradable garment bags contain an additive that lets natural soil processes start breaking down the plastic within just a few weeks of entering the landfill. Or, when you sign up for Club Fresh, we go even one step further. We will provide you with an Eco2Go reusable drop-off and pick-up bag that doubles as a garment bag for those weekend trips! Like the Club Fresh garment bag? We have a number of them for sale, too. For Club Fresh members, they are only $10.
Got a closest full of hangers, bring them back in and they, too, can be reused until they need to go for recycling.
Together, we are just trying to do our part for the environment.
New technology for wet cleaners
As well as using “Clean & Green” processes, Fresh ‘n Press has developed a line of innovative garment finishing equipment designed especially for wet cleaning operations. Our Pressers Edge equipment simplifies tensioning and hand-finishing steps to make wet cleaning service efficient and cost-effective.
