Laundry Pickup and Delivery Services Guide for First-Timers
September 15, 2021
According to the latest data, the market of laundry facilities and dry-cleaning services in the United States was valued at USD 10.51 billion in 2020 and is predicted to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4 percent from 2021 to 2028.
Because of people's increased awareness of self-hygiene and maintaining a clean environment, the demand for dry-cleaning and laundry services has surged dramatically as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak around the world.
The work-from-home transition probably leads you into a really busy life. Sometimes you spend your most awaited weekend just doing household chores like laundry. Now, it’s time to consider simplifying your life and finding ways to save time, such as booking a local wash and fold laundry service near you.
Starcrest Cleaners has put together this guide to make sure that your first laundry pickup and delivery service is a great experience that will get you clean clothes and give you the best results for your money.
Here’s What to Know…
How do I need to prepare my laundry?
Ensure there isn't any delicate clothing such as sheer, lace, and chiffon fabric mixed in with your usual laundry, like tees and jeans, when preparing your clothes for pickup. Make sure all the clothes’ pockets are empty. While we will do our utmost to ensure that all your belongings are safe, we can't guarantee that items won't get lost or broken in the machine.
For the pickup service, you can put the laundry in any type of bag such as a hamper, grocery bags, or trash bags.
Do I need to sort my clothes?
Your clothes will be sorted as part of the service. As a general rule, light colors, dark colors, and whites should all be separated before being washed.
However, if you believe your garments require special attention such as delicate or dry-clean-only items, place them in a separate bag with a note attached. You can also inform the driver of your request.
If the laundry service manager considers that a garment will benefit from being dry-cleaned, they will contact you for approval.
What about any special requests?
Do you have a preference for a fabric softener, detergent, or bleach? Are there certain items that require air drying? Make these requests known, either by letting our customer service know or by providing a note attached to the bag. The driver can also write it down for you.
You can enjoy the extra convenience this service provides whether you are a busy professional or an overloaded mom who needs a little help around the house. Just schedule a pickup and your clothes will be laundered, dried, folded, and delivered back to you.
