COVID - 19 SAFETY MEASURES
For the safety of our customers and team members, we ask that you:
Please do not enter any store if you experience possible symptoms of COVID-19.
This includes coughing, fatigue or a sore throat.
To help combat the COVID-19 situation we are disinfecting all customer laundry with at least one of the following methods.
- Dry Cleaning
- Hot water Laundering
- Warm/Cold Water Laundering and Steam Pressing
For items that do not require pressing we use a partners Green Earth Dry Cleaning system. The higher temperature drying cycles of the cleaning method exceed the temperature/time levels required to disinfect clothing.
Hot Water Laundering:
We disinfect clothing with either a minimum temperature/time of 65 degrees applied for 10 minutes, or 71 degrees applied for 3 minutes. Our advanced commercial washers with steam injection are programmed to disinfection in this manner.
Warm/Cold Water Laundering:
When washing at a low temperature, a commercial disinfectant is added in the washing process.
The steam used on our presses and formers is set at 185 degrees, 3 times higher than the temperature required to kill viruses and bacteria. Items that would normally be hand ironed are now processed on a steam press or former prior to being hand finished.
As COVID-19 is a novel (new) virus it is not possible to 100% guarantee disinfection using these or any other methods. However, the above methods are known to disinfect all other known viruses and bacteria, meeting or exceed the WHO (World Health Organization) guidelines.
