Swans provides the most superior dry-cleaning service using the latest environmentally friendly cleaning equipment. Clothes are first checked for stains and minor damages, then pre-spotted to remove stains before being carefully cleaned. Lastly, each garment is meticulously pressed, and after final inspection enclosed in our signature packaging.
All shirt collars and cuffs are pre-spotted prior to cleaning to remove ground in stains before being laundered using eco-friendly bio-degradable detergents. Because we use a 30-degree wash cycle with hand stain pre-spotting rather than a hot wash, your shirts will last much longer.
On hangers or folded, starched heavily or standard, your shirts are always cleaned and ironed to a very high standard and delivered back to your just the way you like.
Swans provides two services for laundry: a wash and fold (service wash), and a wash, dry and pressing service, where by items are hung on hangers and individually checked for stains. Service wash customers are requested to separate colours and check all pockets before handing over their laundry.

From attending a loose button to perfecting the fit of a blazer, Swans own in-house tailors can do almost any repairs or alterations to your garments. Each of our tailors bring their own individual flare to tailoring ensuring the principle of customising your garment to your request. We are particularly loved for restoring vintage clothing and couture attire.
