Davis Imperial was selected for the Best of Chicago issue because of its new, state-of-art “clean room” preservation and museum-quality inspection area equipped with full-spectrum light (including black light). This space enables technical fabricare specialists to perform complimentary condition analysis that will then be utilized in the restoration of textiles including wedding gowns, christening gowns, eveningwear, heirloom, and vintage designer and couture pieces. Simply stated: Examination of an item with full-spectrum lighting (including black light) enables technicians to see both stains and damages that would otherwise be unnoticeable to the naked eye. This extensive analysis performed by Davis Imperial’s professional staff allows stains and textile damages that would normally be left undetected by an ordinary drycleaner to be addressed, therefore preventing potentially irreversible damage to an item.

Elsewhere in the issue, Lynda Wood, co-owner of Davis Imperial Cleaners, also answered questions about the best ways to maintain, preserve, and clean holiday apparel before, during, and after the busy party season.

Some of Wood’s suggestions:

  • Get dressed last, after you’ve brushed your teeth, sprayed perfume, and put on deodorant.
  • After a spill, don’t use hot water or club soda to try to remove the stain; just blot the spill with a white cotton cloth.
  • If you can’t get your garment to the dry cleaners immediately, don’t stuff it back in the closet. Let it air out for at least 24 hours.
