COVID19-Cleaning and Sanitation
We have taken numerous precautions, company wide, to further protect our employees and customers due to COVID-19. As it relates to sanitation and disinfection of customer clothing, we use a process called Chemo-Thermal Disinfection, which is a certified cleaning method that encompasses a combination of time, temperature, disinfectant, and detergent. This process meets the requirements necessary to kill both category A (bacteria and fungi) and B (viruses) agents. Our employees wear PPE while handling customer laundry to mitigate exposure to harmful agents. We take sanitation and safety very seriously to protect all parties involved throughout our cleaning process.
This once weekly service focuses on everyday laundry and is processed in commercial washers and dryers.

Dry Clean/Gentle Care
We pride ourselves in providing professional care for all our garments. During the check in process, our laundry technicians may find a garment that has specific cleaning instructions from the manufacturer outside the normal wash and dry process. To provide the highest quality service and to protect your clothing, we separate these garments and process them according to the manufacturer’s instructions on the care tag. These items are processed in our Dry Cleaning/ Gentle Care department. They are cleaned, pressed, hung on hangers, and covered in plastic.
- Sweaters, fleece, raincoats, garments with appliques, silk, rayon, and wool are always processed in our Dry Clean/Gentle Care department.
