Our Company

Now owned by the second generation of the Lucero family, The Cleanery consistently offers what larger dry cleaners can’t — personal attention to every garment. Since 1984, our dry cleaner has serviced a cast of tens of thousands of discerning, satisfied customers, from leading political figures to Hollywood productions across metropolitan Albuquerque and Santa Fe.

At The Cleanery, we hold ourselves to the highest quality standards:

  • As New Mexico’s only certified couture level dry cleaner, we undergo rigorous yearly screenings and re-certification by America’s Best Cleaners (ABC).
  • We consistently score among the top five of ABC’s 40 US affiliates in secret shopper and customer satisfaction survey results.
  • The Cleanery has achieved platinum level green business certification with the Green Business Bureau to become New Mexico’s only green certified dry cleaner.
Our Process

What is Couture Level Care?

Couture care is an extremely delicate process, involving complicated technology, chemistry and years of practical experience. A couture care specialist is a well-trained master of their craft, from couture apparel to your white cotton shirts. America’s Best Cleaners™ Certification ensures this level of quality through cutting edge standards and continual education.

As one of America’s Best Cleaners, The Cleanery does what it takes to not just satisfy but to astonish our clients. America’s Best Cleaners has devised and implements the toughest standards of quality in the industry. They inspect thoroughly, test us monthly, and require an annual on-site inspection. In addition, they conduct surveys of retailers and clients, random secret shopping reports, and listen to you, the customer.

In order to maintain the exacting standards of America’s Best Cleaners, The Cleanery undergoes a continuing education course of the highest levels through various workshops, seminars, tours and on-site instruction. Our employees are steeped in the advanced courses of cleaning, spotting, finishing, wet cleaning, packaging, and every facet of returning garments to you in like-new condition.

To be a dry cleaner on the leading edge of fashion, one must be familiar with the new age fabrics, dyes, embellishments as well as the complex construction of the garments continually making their way into the various designer clothing. America’s Best Cleaners takes the responsibility of keeping The Cleanery and its 39 affiliate members educated in all the latest styles and technologies.
