Due to the nature of our specialist cleaning process, Crystal Care Cleaners Ltd price lists are for guidance only and may vary depending on the condition of the garment, the delicacy of the fabric, whether the garment requires specialist attention.

Please ensure that you remove any items from the garments which may cause damage (i.e. change from pockets).

9. Shrinkage

There is a chance some garments will experience shrinkage, this is occurs in natural fibres i.e. cotton, wool, silk etc. At Crystal Care Cleaners every effort will be made to ensure the shrinkage is at the most minimum, however we cannot guarantee zero shrinkage, and it is our customer's decision to proceed or not at that point. If the customer requests to proceed with the service to clean the garment, full payment for the service provided will need to be made

10. Stain removal

Every effort will be made to remove stains from garments, however Crystal Care Cleaners Ltd cannot guarantee to remove all stains. Our customers will be appraised at the time of inspecting a garment, if we believe the removal of stain(s) may not be possible and it is our customer's decision to proceed or not at that point. If the customer requests to proceed with the service to clean the garment, full payment for the service provided will need to be made.

11. Risk of damage

The Wet-Care system used by Crystal Care Cleaners Ltd is extremely gentle and it is very rare for items to be damaged, but again, Crystal Care Cleaners Ltd will appraise the customer at the time of inspecting a garment if we believe there could be any risk of damage. It is the customer's decision to proceed or not at that point.

12. Payment Terms

Payments have to be made at the point of leaving your garment(s) with us for cleaning (pre-payment) and a discount can (at manager's discretion) be made available to our customers. The manager can choose to allow the customer to pay in full on collection. All promotions and discounts will be subject to change without prior notice.
