San Francisco Department of the Environment Completes Alternatives Analysis of Professional Apparel Cleaning Technologies

Dr. Sinsheimer works with the San Francisco Department of the Environment (SFDE) to complete an alternatives analysis chart of six professional apparel cleaning technologies with each technology evaluated for Human Health & Environmental Hazards, Air Regulations, Health Regulations, and Fire Regulations.  Professional Wet Cleaning ranks highest; the only technology SFDE classifies with a dark green (environmentally preferable) rating and the only technology receiving a “thumbs up” sign.  SFDE uses this chart as a basis for developing Green Business Certification for garment cleaning services.
