3. Inspect and Label
The Zoots specialist inspects and labels your garments. Any special requests are documented and attached to your garment to insure the best possible service for you. Each ticket has a personalized number which is placed on each of your garments, so we can make sure all of your items are delivered on time. Any stains are marked with red tape, so our stain specialist can easily locate them prior to cleaning.
We also look for personal items – to return to you, as well as tears, missing buttons and stains. Special request and special attention labels are attached to your garment.
The Zoots specialist sorts your garments by color, laundry, dry cleaning, alterations and stains. Your whites stay white, because Zoots only cleans your whites in clean detergent. Your darks are separated by only cleaning reds (bleeders) from the rest of the garments. We also put sweaters in bags so they do not cause lint on other garments. All items are properly sorted for processing.

Your garment is hand treated prior to cleaning by our stain removal specialist. Zoots uses over 20 different stain removal detergents that remove your stains. Some stains are easy and other stains take many attempts to remove from your garments. We will only try to remove stains that will not harm your garments. In the event we need your permission for further work, we will place a note on your garment asking for more time or permission to use stronger detergents.
