Dry-Cleaning Standards
CHAPTER  6 THE DRY-CLEANING OPERATION The dry-cleaning operation is another service activity  of  the  supply  department.  The  supply officer  is  responsible  for  providing  dry-cleaning service on ships where dry-cleaning equipment is installed.  The  responsibility  for  providing  this service  is  normally  assigned  to  a  junior  Supply Corps   officer. Since  water  damages  certain  fabrics,  some clothing must be dry cleaned. Dry cleaning is the process by which you immerse soiled and stained garments  in  dry-cleaning  solvent  in  a  dry-cleaning machine.  Normally,  dry-cleaning  equipment  is installed  on  ships  with  over  500  personnel; however,  provisions  for  dry-cleaning  equipment on  ships  with  100  to  500  personnel  are  considered on  a  case-by-case  basis. DRY-CLEANING   PERSONNEL The  number  of  Ship’s  Servicemen  and  strikers assigned  to  the  dry-cleaning  operation  depends  on the workload and the equipment. On carriers and tenders where the plant is much larger than on other ships, there may be a supervisor, an assistant supervisor,  and  6  to  10  additional  personnel. The  petty  officer  assigned  as  supervisor  is responsible   for   preparing   the   dry-cleaning schedule, procuring supplies, training personnel, operating   the   plant, and  cooperating  with engineering   personnel   in   maintaining   the equipment.  The  supervisor  assigns  personnel  to do the work as efficiently as possible and rotates them so they can get experience in all the tasks performed  in  the  plant. DRY-CLEANING   SECURITY All dry-cleaning personnel are responsible for maintaining  security  in  the  dry-cleaning  plant. Security  prevents  loss  of  dry-cleaning  articles, damage  to  equipment,  injury  to  untrained personnel,  and  unauthorized  use  of  equipment and  facilities.  The  dry-cleaning  plant  is  considered a  Group  IV  space.  Keys  should  be  handled  as outlined in chapter 1 of this manual under Group IV  spaces.  Any  work  done  in  the  dry-cleaning plant  after  normal  work  hours  should  have  the final  approval  of  the  ship’s  store  officer. DRY-CLEANING   SCHEDULE As in the laundry, a schedule is necessary for controlling  the  delivery,  processing,  and  issuing of dry cleaning. To prepare such a schedule, start with a flow chart of all operations through which articles  must  pass  from  the  time  they  are  received until  they  are  ready  for  issue  (fig.  6-1).  Then Figure  6-1.—Dry-cleaning  flow  chart. 6-1
