Our available services 

Wedding Dress Cleaning 

Your wedding dress is the most important and expensive dress you will own - so we treat your dress as if it were our own. Our unique wedding dress service gives your wedding dress the luxury clean and presentation service it deserves - to ensure your dress will look perfect for many years to come. 
Our team of experienced wedding dress cleaners will inspect the dress and provide the best cleaning method, matched to the individual requirements of the gown. We cater for all gowns including those labelled specialist dry clean, spot clean, do not dry clean and those that do not carry a cleaning label. 
 
Highly embroidered fabrics with beads, sequins or crystals are cared for and cleaned more safely than ever, using our environmentally friendly Lagoon Advanced Care wet cleaning process. Lagoon is the ideal method for cleaning all the beautiful fabrics and silks used on wedding gowns. 
 
After cleaning, your dress is expertly hand-finished by our most senior members of staff, who have had over 40 years’ experience of hand-finishing wedding dresses. The finished dress is then presented back to you either on a hanger or in a handmade wedding dress box, for you to love for years to come. 
 

Dry Cleaning 

We are the leaders in eco-friendly cleaning. Since 2014, as the first cleaners in the U.K. to utilise the Lagoon Advanced Wet Cleaning system, we’ve helped change the way the nation thinks about dry cleaning, for the better. Better for the planet, better for your clothes and better for you. 
We’re proud that we do not use traditional dry cleaning methods. We have stopped using perchloroethylene solvent, traditionally used by dry cleaners to clean delicate clothes. We use an alternative process called Lagoon Advanced Care Wet Cleaning - an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional dry cleaning. This process uses water, biodegradable solvents and detergents. 
 
Lagoon Advanced Care is the only cleaning process that carries the Woolmark Accreditation, as the safest cleaning method for all woolen garments in! 
 
All our dry cleaning can be available same day or within 24 hours. 
 

Prestige Service 

Make sure you are always looking your best with our Prestige cleaning service. With Prestige, your garments are processed as priority - everything will be ready at the time you want to collect your garments, guaranteed. 
Your items are returned to you on Prestige luxury wooden hanger within a breathable premium suit cover, protecting items being stored in your wardrobe from moths and dust, and handy for busy professionals when travelling. 
 

Curtain Cleaning 

Did you know that household curtains can harbour tens of thousands of microscopic dust mites? Curtains are effective air-filters, trapping airborne dust, odours, hairs, smoke and dead skin particles. 
 
They can be the perfect habitat for dust mites, which can cause a wide range of allergic reactions, including eczema, dermatitis, asthma, dry coughs, hay fever and sinusitis. Smoke and nicotine also attack curtain fibres. 
 
If anyone in the house suffers from asthma or allergies, it is highly recommended that you clean your curtains on a regular basis. Traditional dry cleaning will not remove odours and not clean deep into the curtains fibres. That’s why at Ideal we clean all our curtains using our Lagoon Advanced wet cleaning process. 
 

Upholstery and Sofa Cleaning 

Upholstery, sofa covers, or loose scatter cushions show soil and dirt quickly. Keeping upholstered furniture clean will prolong the life of the fabric and furniture. 
 

Domestic Laundry Service 

Make the beds, strip the beds, wash the sheets, dry the sheets. Rinse and repeat. Sound familiar? Water bills, washing powder, time, shocking electricity bills... and drying sheets in winter? It all adds up… 
Let Ideal relieve the burden of the laundry, so you can enjoy something else instead. We have over 108 years’ experience in laundry - so why trust anyone else? We guarantee all our bed linen is disinfected and is hygienically safe for you to sleep in because we use ECOLAB OxyGuard40 laundry chemicals - giving you a cleaner, fresher nights sleep.

Duvets & Pillow Cleaning 

Did you know you are sharing your bed with millions of little creatures? Dead and alive! It’s estimated there are 20,000 dust mites alone in your duvet. 
 
Your duvets contain millions of fungal spores which have been proven to exacerbate asthma in adults and cause sporadic or long term allergic sinusitis in people with allergic tendencies. 
Although dust mites eat fungi, the fungi thrive on dust mite faeces and dead human skin scales, perpetuating a cycle of infestation. Yuk! 
 
For the most effective results, industry hygiene guidelines recommend duvets are washed twice a year. 

Sports Team Washing 

We love getting involved with our local sports teams and wherever possible we are able to wash their kits for them.
