Dry cleaners who use perchloroethylene (PERC) can apply for reimbursement to replace their PERC equipment with one of our safer, preferred alternatives. Businesses that qualify can get up to:
- $20,000 to switch to professional wet cleaning, or
- $10,000 to switch to hydrocarbon.
With new guidance for handling PERC, some dry cleaners may want to replace their PERC equipment with those that use fewer toxic chemicals. To support those businesses, we've developed this reimbursement program to help dry cleaners offset the costs to purchase new equipment.
