Carriage Trade is an industry leader in solvent-free cleaning. The first 100% Solvent-Free cleaner in North America.

We have two locations (one in Oshawa and one in Courtice). 


Wet Cleaning in Canada is very new. This German technology has been installed on our premises and has truly produced some miracles. Wet cleaning can best be described as a method for effectively removing water soluble stains from a typically dry clean only garment.


Items built with 100% wools, cashmere, silk, rayon, acetate and dozens of other fabrics can now be safely treated and finished. These fabrics have a dry cleaning preference but certain food, beverages and albuminous stains simply donot release in the dry cleaning process.


Take a look at the History page to learn a little more about the company and its roots.
