Clean Your Comforters at Crest Advanced Dry Cleaners

Take a moment to think about where you spend the most time. Chances are, you’re picturing your office or job, or maybe even your family’s living room or kitchen. Did you think of your bedroom? Probably not, but the fact is: you spend nearly a third of your life sleeping. That’s a lot of time catching Zs. Your body needs that time to recover and recharge for the day ahead.

We all know that sleep is essential for optimal health, but a recent New York Times poll suggests that as many as four out of five people (over 80 percent of the population) say they wake up still feeling exhausted at least once a week. Are you one of those people? It’s time to clean your way to a better night’s sleep.

There’s a lot going on between the sheets.

They call it rest for a reason. Even though many of your body’s natural processes slow down while you sleep, they never actually stop. That means that while you’re dreaming of a tropical island getaway, your body is keeping up the housekeeping – regulating temperature and shedding dead skin cells. Most people lose a quarter to a half liter of moisture every night in their sleep, and all that perspiration must go somewhere.

Your sheets, comforter, pillows, and bed skirt trap this excess sweat and dead skin cells (even the cosmetics and lotions that rub off your skin), creating a perfect environment to nourish dust mites, allergens, and all manner of other things that go bump in the night. Eek! Your linens get dirtier every time you snuggle up underneath them, especially in the winter months when you pile on more blankets for warmth. As you can imagine, sleeping on a veritable Petri dish isn’t good for your health. You could be aggravating respiratory problems and allergies while irritating your skin. No wonder people aren’t getting the sleep they need!

Create a soothing sleep environment.

While it’s easy to toss your sheets into the laundry once a week, it’s not so easy to wash the bulkier bedroom linens: comforters, quilts, bedspreads, pillows, blankets, mattress pads, bed skirts, and even curtains. To stay on top of your clean routine, we recommend taking your bedroom fabrics to a professional cleaner like Crest Advanced Dry Cleaners once a season.

We know these items can be bulky, making it a hassle to pack the car and come to one of our convenient area locations. That’s why Crest is thrilled to offer free home pick-up and delivery! Simply fill your Crest garment bag and leave it for us on your next designated pick-up day. We’ll do the heavy lifting for you (and the expert cleaning, of course) and return your freshly pressed linens right to your door. Imagine how good it will feel to slip into the crisp, clean comfort of your cozy bed after a long day at work – especially knowing that Crest uses only safe, environmentally-friendly dry cleaning methods to protect you and your family. Breathe easier, get more rest, and clean your bedroom linens with Crest!
