What is Wet Cleaning?


Process and benefits of our Wet Cleaning washing machines: they use water as a universal solvent 

Wet Cleaning is an efficient water washing system; a process designed for our Wet Cleaning washing machines, where water is used as a solvent. 

It is used to wash more delicate linen, without mechanical action and works at a low temperature for the entire wash. The process has 4 set stages: pre-stain removal, washing, drying and finishing; the wash cycles are always less than sixty minutes. 

But.... How do you detect whether an item of clothing is delicate and can be washed with the Wet Cleaning system?

They key lies in the labels, a required and compulsory element in clothing. It is worth checking these labels to quickly identify whether the items are delicate or not, so you can choose the washing, drying and finishing process that will give you the best results. 

The label is one of those essential elements on any item of clothing. Both current legislation within the European Community and most countries require garments to be labelled with specific information. 

Specifically, we usually find three different labels, the composition, the brand and the size label, but the required information is always on the composition label.

At Domus we have an extensive range of machinery for Wet Cleaning. Thanks to the incorporation in all of the industrial and professional ranges, both of washing machines and tumble dryers, of the new TOUCH II microprocessor, our Wet Cleaning washing machines enable the mechanical action to be regulated through the control of movement, being able to control aspects such as speed, periods of rest and running time, the water level or the efficiency level of each cycle.  

Furthermore, this microprocessor enables maximum precision in controlling the temperature of each wash, managing in each case to use the ideal proportion of cold and hot water.

In terms of the levels of chemical products of the cycles, this microprocessor enables the programming of the exact and required quantity of each product, with 8 standard dispensing signals. 

Additionally, its software offers the possibility of carrying out a comprehensive analysis of the data of each washing cycle, as well as its traceability.

Water Re-Cycle 

It works using a filter and a pump installed in the washing machine that act as a system of recirculation and use of the washing water which leads to a long list of advantages for industrial laundries:

  1. More use of the water with chemical products in each wash.
  2. Reduction of the time of the cycle by wetting the garment.
  3. Improves the mix of the chemical product.
  4. Reduces the mechanical action of the pump, with the same result.
  5. Can be activated in whichever stage we want

In this case, the TOUCH II microprocessor, also incorporated in our entire line of industrial tumble dryers with drumdouble drum, o con heat pump, enables an exhaustive and rigorous control to be carried out of the drying temperature in each cycle.


Using a new system called Efficient Dry, the humidity of the garments can be controlled, increasing the precision, drying quality and significantly reducing the times of the cycles. 

Mediante un novedoso sistema llamado Efficient Dry, se puede controlar la humedad de las prendas, consiguiendo aumentar la precisión, la calidad del secado y reduciendo significativamente los tiempos de los ciclos.

 In addition, these industrial tumble dryers also have a complete circuit of the isolated air flow and an air recovery and recycling system for future cycles, achieving a degree of energy efficiency never seen before.
