How often should you dry clean a suit?

Getting ready to play the business game

A good suit is a classic staple to any wardrobe. Good for weddings, funerals, business or pleasure, a carefully tailored suit is meant to last for years. To get the best results from your favorite suit, it’s important to take good care of it.

Most suits are made from delicate fabrics that cannot be washed in a machine. In order to keep a structured fit it’s necessary to have your suits dry cleaned. If you wear a suit or even a blazer frequently, you may be wondering how often dry cleaning needs to be done.

When you see stains

It’s never a good idea to let a stain or a smell linger. The moment you notice a spot, it’s probably time to take it in and let a professional cleaner remove the stain quickly. A suit doesn’t typically touch skin directly but sweat stains can still build up over time. It’s important to keep an eye on these areas and take care of the issue before it gets serious.

When it starts to look dull

Frequent machine washing can make garments look dull and faded but it’s not the same with dry cleaning. Over time your suit may collect dust or grime in the area and that can cause the colors to fade and the fabrics to break down. Frequent dry cleaning can actually protect your suit by removing the grime.

When it’s been worn too long

If you only wear your suit on special occasions it’s really only necessary to clean them after that event, so they can be stored properly. If you wear a suit daily it’s a good idea to have a few suits you can cycle through. In most cases suits should be cleaned after every 3 or 4 wears. For some people that’s every month and for some it’s every two or three weeks.
