Miele Professional Wet Cleaning is a garment cleaning process based on technology that was developed in 1991 by Miele and detergent manufacturer Kreussler. The companies’ goal was to develop a cleaning process that effectively cleaned all garments through a safe biodegradable detergent process - a process that was truly “green”.
The safe, environmentally friendly and effective cleaning system for materials and fabrics including:
Wet cleaning uses highly sophisticated washers and dryers to safely clean all articles of clothing that normally are dry cleaned. Wet cleaning uses water; nature’s best cleaning solvent and a safe biodegradable detergent mixture to clean.
The biggest advantage of wet cleaning technology is that it is the most effective way to remove water based stains and odours, rendering clothes not only truly clean, but fresh smelling and the process does not expose workers or customers to toxic chemicals. A wide variety of materials can be cleaned in a wet cleaning system.
Miele Professional Wet Cleaning System produces superior cleaning results with washers that accurately control water levels, temperatures, settings and detergent dosing levels and drum rotation rhythm. Miele dryers then measure the garments residual moisture, optimizing cycle times, saving energy and protecting the garments from over drying.
Wet Cleaning requires specialist finishing equipment as part of the process. In conjunction with Veit, the world’s leading manufacturer of finishing equipment for the laundry and drycleaning market, Veit has a high quality range of equipment to allow the processed garments to be expertly finished to exacting standards. The equipment uses specially designed tensioning and stretching finishers for both jackets and trousers, with final touches and detailing being applied on the powerful vacuum and blowing table.

As it is water-based, the WetCare system is able to clean a wider variety of materials than traditional drycleaning within a shorter amount of time, therefore increasing the profits of its users. In addition, the WetCare programmes on the machines can be designed to respond to changing market opportunities e.g. the cleaning of Ugg Boots and Mulberry bags.
Full training on the Miele WetCare system is available in a variety of different packages. Up to two training courses will be running each month at the WetCare centre in Feltham and full test washes will allow customers to try before they buy.
"The Miele WetCare system has changed everything. We have been able to enhance our product offering without financial impact to our customers and improve health and safety conditions for employees, customers and the community. I believe that this new method of cleaning will eventually phase out conventional chemical cleaning.
It just makes sense and my customers love it!"
