Pressing, Steaming and Ironing ensure that your garment looks immaculate. If you've ever been ta a dry-cleaner’s before, you would most certainly have seen the equipment used to press the clothes are found very warm. All thanks to the steam. The purpose of steaming machines and specialised pressing machines is to make the task of ironing & pressing faster and more effective.
How does a press work?
The equipment uses a combination of pressure and steam that can be isolated using air or vacuum. When steam is applied to a garment, it softens the fabric and allows for more effortless pressing. The pressed effect is caused by the high pressure applied to the cloth, and the heat helps the clothing to dry quickly while maintaining its shape.
Also, steam may be extracted using vacuum or air, which will help in the drying process. In a press, the pressure comes from the top, while the steam comes from the bottom. Hence allowing the cloth to retain shape and stay wrinkle free.
Why press my clothes?
The aim of pressing a fabric is to aid in its shape retention, shirts are the best example of this. Clothing does not lie flat when worn, so adding finishing will make it look its best.
A shirt's collar is pressed with a curve at specialist cleaners, and the cuffs are pressed in the same manner, often by the same machine with different parts to position each piece. There are also devices dedicated to pressing cuff garments.
