Turbo Turtle Wet and Dry Cleaners lives up to its name, offering traditional dry cleaning, a greener wet clean, a laundry service and alterations and repairs. Nicholas Farrugia, owner Turbo Turtle Wet and Dry Cleaners
"Nicholas Farrugia has been in the dry cleaning business ever since he was old enough to work. “My father has been in this industry to 45 years so I followed in his footsteps,” he said. Now, with two stores of his own, Nicholas has branched out into a new line of cleaning. “While we still offer the traditional dry cleaning service, we also offer a greener alternative that is the latest in environmentally friendly cleaning,” Nicholas said. The ‘wet clean’ clean system is popular in Europe and in parts of the USA, but is not yet well known in Australia. “We’re the flagship store for the company who make the machinery we use,” Nicholas said. “It involves specially formulated soaps, rather than the traditional cleaning chemicals, and relies on a computerized drying system that monitors the moisture content of the fabric so that no shrinkage or damage occurs.” Nicholas said the system was a great alternative for people who had chemical sensitivities or who simply wanted to make more environmentally friendly choices. Turbo Turtle also offers customers a super convenient 24-hour drop off and pick up, or ‘red box’, service."
