Agua Smart wet cleaning system launched

Girbau UK has launched Agua Smart, its complete professional wet cleaning system for dry cleaners, laundry businesses and hoteliers. Agua Smart comprises all the equipment needed to start a wet cleaning service including expertly formulated spotters, high tech washers and driers, biodegradable detergents, and specialist finishing equipment.

“There is a growing desire to offer customers more environmentally-sensitive cleaning options and wet cleaning is the green alternative to the traditional dry cleaning process,” said Peter Marsh, managing director of Girbau UK. “Agua Smart wet cleaning offers better quality cleaning of water-soluble stains and odours and is ideal for 90% of articles that are normally dry cleaned. It is particularly good for wedding dresses, sequined and other delicate fabrics, leather coats, suede items, and footwear such as trainers and UGG boots.”

The new Agua Smart system comprises a full range of wet cleaning finishing and pre-treatment detergents from Ideal Manufacturing and equipment including washers and driers, spotting tables, steam generators, finishing tables, presses, garment formers, trouser toppers, and shirt machinery. The finishing equipment ensures garments have the correct amount of tension to provide customers with excellent finished results.

Philip Kalli, managing director of Ideal Manufacturing, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with our friends at Girbau to produce a simple, eco-friendly, transparent and fairly priced wet cleaning solution. Like us, Girbau is a proud, family-owned manufacturer with a strong history of innovation, expertise and experience in the professional laundry industry. Together, through extensive development and a lengthy period of field testing in the UK, we have perfected complementary products for the Agua Smart wet cleaning machine.”
