As peoples' lives get busier day by day, simple chores can pile up, especially dirty laundry. Larger families especially find it difficult to keep up with laundry, particularly when both partners are working. Laundry services cater to the needs of these people by providing complete laundry services where they professionally, wash, dry and fold laundry and deliver them to your door. These laundry services are hired by:
- The elderly who no longer have the physical strength to do their own laundry
- Businesses who own linen and need it washed regularly (e.g., hotels, restaurants, clubs, churches, etc.)
- Busy families
- People wishing to get delicate formal wear cleaned (e.g., clothing with intricate bead work, silk fabrics, suits, etc.)
- Corporate personnel who need their work gear professionally washed.
The main reason that people choose to opt for professional laundry services is that it saves them time. Laundry is one of the most time-intensive chores around the house. This time is valuable and can then be dedicated to another worthwhile cause. Another reason is that laundry services clean items much better than most people could on their own. They use special cleaning solutions that work to remove all stains.
What cleaning solutions are used by laundry services?
People are becoming increasingly aware that chemical-laden products often do more harm than good. Initially the laundry items will come out clean; however they can expose you them to chemicals that can cause a range of illnesses. This is why it is important to always ask your chosen laundry service about which cleaning solution they use. Organic cleaners offer an alternative that safely cleans your laundry, without the use of toxic chemicals.
A number of organic cleaning methods may be used to clean garments. One of these is known as the wet cleaning method, where special detergents and machines are used for the cleaning process. Another method is known as carbon dioxide cleaning, where recycled carbon dioxide is used for cleaning. These methods require specialised equipment which may or may not be available to all laundry services. If you would like these services, be sure to ask if the company can provide them.
In terms of the cost, this is usually per item when it comes to clothing. If the fabric is particularly difficult to clean or quite large in size, then the price will increase. Always ensure that you clearly communicate your requirements to the laundry service to avoid any type of mishaps.
