Hallak Named One of 10 Top Cleaners in U.S. – Top 50 in the World

Spruce Magazine, a publication standard in the industry, named Hallak Cleaners among the nations ten best. Their profile recounted an incident which could also qualify Hallak as the safest. Some years ago, a client brought in an outrageously expensive Chanel bag to be cleaned. Without a moment’s hesitation, President John-Claude Hallak placed it in the store vault for safety until it was serviced. At Hallak, this kind of customer attention is par for the course, and has been since we began operations as a family-run business in 1963. What makes Hallak so special is the care and the people they employ. Unlike most cleaners with only one or two cleaning methods available, Hallak has four to satisfy the varying cleaning requirements of a cotton sweater, a beaded silk gown, an Armani suit and a leather jacket. Whereas most cleaners distill their cleaning solutions only after 4-5 uses, we distill ours after every use. And, because poor pressing is so critical to a perfectly cleaned and finished garment, we hire only the best, most experienced professionals and then refine their techniques to meet our exacting standards. We give our customers more – more advanced technologies and more qualified, caring employees.

Environmentally Safe and Aware

Hallak is the recipient of the 2002 Robert Santo Environmental Awareness Award given by the New Jersey Small Business Compliance Advisory Panel, in cooperation with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. Hallak is one of 2 businesses in the state to receive this prestigious award based on demonstrating exemplary environmental responsibility. We are proud to be recognized by the State of New Jersey for our commitment to the protection on our natural resources.

The New York Times

“Mr. Hallak prides himself on the care he gives to wedding gowns. [He] works for museums, antique shops and textile restorers, as well as private customers. He stresses attention to detail.”

New York Magazine

“…observant counter people who carefully inspected my garments & delivered the clothes gleaming, well-pressed and well-finished.”

“…the cleaner Turnbull & Asser recommends to its customers.”

Glamour Magazine

“Hallak Cleaners in New York City, a stain-solutions source.”

Avenue Magazine

“Hallak will perform drycleaning miracles.”

The Best of New York-Gault & Millau

“A cleaner of the highest order.”

Drycleaning World

“In an age of impersonality and indifference, Hallak stands out.”

American Drycleaner Magazine

“Very simply one of the best drycleaners anywhere.”
