Tim and Catherine McCann founded Best Cleaners in 2005 to better serve their own garment care needs.  Both Tim and Catherine brought many years of large company experience which has translated into forming a firm that is family owned and operated while also adhering to a process, procedure, accountability and purposeful culture.

The process of cleaning garments is complex as is the reality of consistently delivering a high level of client service, product quality and employee centric culture.  The team at Best has delivered on these promises for Best clients for fifteen years and they are thrilled to be an integral part of the Capital Region community.

Best Cleaners is a proud affiliate of America’s Best Cleaners™, a third-party organization that searches out the top cleaners across the United States. As a part of the program, Best Cleaners undergoes annual inspections, monthly secret shops and random spot peer reviews to ensure that our service meets the highest standards in the garment care industry.

Some of those high standards include a focus on sustainability which has typically been a challenging area for most dry cleaners.  However, Best Cleaners has a history of doing things the right way, and that includes the use of K4 solvent as opposed to environmentally harmful traditional solvent, and non-phosphate detergents that damage clothes and the environment.  They also offer wet cleaning methods which drastically reduce or eliminate the need for solvents or detergents.

Other ways that Best Cleaners has greened their business are by switching to LED lighting in their facilities and creating a hanger recycling program.  Additionally, Best Cleaners is a member of the Green Business Bureau and is a certified green business.

Best Cleaners has been consistently recognized on local and regional “best of” lists, ranked in the top 30 cleaners nationwide since 2007, and was named to the Inc. 500 | 5000 America’s Fastest-Growing Companies by Inc. Magazine in August 2011, 2012 and 2013.
