Different Ways In Which a Laundromat Can Be Helpful After a Hurricane

Hurricanes are some of the most damaging natural calamities. Over the past few years, we have witnessed extensive damage worth billions of dollars after hurricanes Irma, Harvey, and Irene. As if the costly damage is not enough, cleaning up after a hurricane can be a daunting task. In addition to getting your laundry extremely soiled, your clothes risk contamination, which can make hand-washing your laundry not just tiring, but also unsafe. Since you need a fresh change of clothes, using a Laundromat is probably the fastest and safest way to clean your clothes.  If you’ve been hit by a hurricane, here are 5 different ways in which a Laundromat can be of help.

•Clean a Huge Load of Heavily Soiled Laundry

Floodwater during a hurricane is usually full of dirt and debris. If all of your clothes have been heavily soiled by floodwater, cleaning them by hand is practically impossible. You might end up spending lots of time and energy trying to clean them but the truth is, heavily soiled clothes don’t get clean that easy, unless you use a high-powered and high-capacity Laundromat washing machine or a dry cleaning machine. In a Laundromat, you can have your huge load cleaned up in minutes. Some Laundromats even offer Wash and Fold services. You will therefore save time and energy for other clean up jobs in the house.

•Disinfect Clothes with Hot Water

Your plumbing and hot water system will most likely be damaged after a hurricane. With your clothes heavily soiled and most likely contaminated by the flood water, using hot water is the only way to ensure that they are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. In a Laundromat, you will get to disinfect your clothes with hot water and other disinfectants.

•Convenient Pick Up and Drop-Off Services

After the aftermath of a hurricane, your entire house is certainly in a big mess. During this time, you need as much time as you can get to clean up and get everything in order. Most Laundromats offer pickup and drop-off services. They will pick up your dirty laundry from your home and deliver it to you right to your doorstep. This way, you will have more time to perform other tasks like cleaning up.

•Hurricane Relief for Laundry Services

After the immense destruction of a hurricane, most people are often left with little or no money for food or other expenses. As a hurricane victim, you may not even afford to take your laundry to a coined Laundromat. The good news is that some Laundromats roll out disaster relief Laundromat programs where they offer free laundry services to the affected people. Simply find a Laundromat that is offering free laundry services and you won’t have to pay a dime, which is pretty convenient.

•Free Mobile Laundry Service

Some companies send mobile laundry truck to help thousands of affected residents clean their clothes free of charge. These mobile Laundromats are usually outfitted with washers and dryers to handle hundreds of loads for the victims. By bringing a Laundromat to you, you will avoid the hassle of carrying loads of wet and soiled clothes to the nearest Laundromat.

Why Mr. Laundromat is the Best in the Triangle

The Raleigh and Garner areas are growing as new residents trickle in from across the country! Unfortunately, there are plenty of rental buildings with laundry facilities that are outdated or unequipped to handle the laundry needs of residents. Business owners in the Raleigh and Garner areas also may have laundry needs that are unmet due to the standard offerings of local dry cleaners and laundromats.

 

Luckily Mr. Laundromat can save the day and take care of Raleigh, Garner, and Clayton residents and business owners in need of residential and commercial laundering services. We differ in a handful of ways from standard dry cleaners and coin-operated laundromats around town, and residents who partner with us for their laundering needs always feel right at home in our facility.

3 ways that Mr. Laundromat differs from other dry cleaners and laundromats in Raleigh are:

  • Lower Cost. It shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg to professionally wash the garments that clothe arms and legs. We take pride in providing laundering services for small and large jobs at an affordable price that Triangle locals will love. Compared to other facilities in the area, our prices are affordable no matter the service required.
  • Higher Quality. Our friendly staff is available to provide exceptional service that leaves patrons amazed. We take care of linens and laundry as if they were our own and strive to ensure each garment is treated with care. Whether it’s a load of team jerseys or a pile of tablecloths for a fine dining restaurant, we have a higher attention to detail than our competitors which means Triangle residents see consistent results with us.
  • Real Amenities. Who ever heard of having fun doing laundry on site at a laundromat? At our facility, guests are treated with respect and have options to keep the family entertained while the weekly wash is done. Enjoy free Wifi to multitask and conduct some business while the delicates dry, or catch up on some shows lingering in the streaming queue. Guests with children will especially love the play area to keep the little ones occupied while the loads are switched. No other laundering facility can beat our air-conditioned lounge area complete with a huge 42-inch high-definition flat screen TV broadcasting the latest news and sporting events. Laundry doesn’t have to be a chore or a reason to miss out on the fun of life.

So far this is just a snapshot of the unmatched quality here at Mr. Laundromat. From our state-of-the-art services to our affordable prices, we give people a reason to keep coming back and to stop dreading laundry day.

What else can set us apart from the other laundering services in the Triangle? There’s a lot to say here because we have services that guests didn’t even know were available to them before! Some have come in with jobs they thought were impossible, but no stain is too tough or garment too delicate for our care.

Our facility offers the following seven commercial and residential laundering services always with a smile and total care for the job:

  • Wash and Fold. For those that simply do not have the time to wait around while the laundry is washed, that’s no problem for us. For only 99 cents per pound, we will wash, dry, and fold each load with precision and care. For garments with special instructions, just leave them with us and we’ll follow them completely.
  • Dry Cleaning. Special or delicate clothing that needs different attention is possible with us. No matter what the material is, whether suede, wool, or lace, we will make them like new without any damage to their pristine appearance.
  • Yes, that’s right, we not only clean the laundry we can alter them for any reason. Simply bring the garment, have one of our friendly staff members take measurements for the desired alterations, and leave it with us. We’ll let you know when it’s ready for pickup, and you can finally have a one-stop place for all laundry needs!
  • Comforter and Bulk Services. No single piece is too cumbersome for our facility. Onsite we have machines of all sizes to accommodate the smallest or largest load. Most home washers cannot safely or comfortably clean large pieces like a bed comforter. Luckily we can, and we also provide same day services if the load is dropped off by 11 am!
  • Dust Mite Treatment. Bed clothes can accumulate dust mites even in the cleanest of homes! Our large capacity washers can clean and sanitize the comforter and sheets to ensure that no dust mite waste or residue is lingering in the creases.
  • Commercial Services. We help local business owners with their laundry needs, too! Restaurant owners love our quick turn-around time with precious linens. However, hair salons never go a day with fresh towels when they come to us with their needs.
  • Pet Services. Pets need cleaning services just as much as their loving owners. Feel free to bring their bulky beds or favorite blankets to us for professional cleaning. We’ll clean it thoroughly and save your home washer from absorbing any odors.

At Mr. Laundromat, we can wash any garment, fabric, or bulky item in our clean and cozy facility. Don’t let the laundry pile up because it’s a chore, we will gladly take it off your hands! Contact us today for pricing and other services we can perform.

How to Best Prepare Winter Clothes and Linens for Storage

 

Now that winter is over and spring is officially here in the Triangle, it is time to think about transitioning from the cold weather, winter wardrobe to a warm weather, spring wardrobe. Before enjoying this spring season, one must make room for their spring clothing by doing the following pair of things.

  • Cleaning Winter Clothes Correctly.
  • Properly Packing and Storing Winter Clothes.

Mr. Laundromat knows how important it is to not overlook either of these steps when transitioning out of winter clothing. Following those steps can not only protect the clothes, but also save time and money months from now when winter comes again and there is no need to throw away expensive winter clothing or have to spend hours laboring over trying to clean them. Let us now look at the first step to properly taking care of  winter clothes now that spring has arrived.

Cleaning the winter clothes correctly means:

  • Wash All Winter Clothes: Do not put this task off until the fall or next winter. Not only will this result in an unpleasant smelling winter wardrobe, but any stains will have had a great deal of time to set and ruin some favorite winter clothing items.
  • Clean Winter Coats Correctly: This is a common mistake people make, but not washing big winter coat at all or washing it incorrectly it could cause it to lose some of its puffiness as well as decrease its effectiveness in keeping out warmth. Most experts recommend having one’s winter coat professionally cleaned.
  • Clean the Accessories the Right Way: While some winter accessories such as mittens and hats can be tossed into the home wash, more expensive items such as leather items or luxe/silk scarves require a more technical approach where a trip to the dry cleaner is necessary.
  • Take Care of Sweaters: It can be a tricky and long process cleaning all of the winter sweaters and cardigans, especially those that are made of materials such a wool and cashmere. Experts recommend not using a home washing machine, and instead either washing such items by hand or at a high quality delicate washing machine such as those found at professional laundry services.

Now that the winter clothes have successfully been taken care of and cleaned correctly, it is time to look at the second step of taking care of any winter wardrobe: storage.

In order to properly pack and store winter clothes, start by:

  • Pick the Location First: A good rule of thumb when storing clothes is a dark, cool, and dry location with good ventilation to combat mildew. A sunny location can quickly fade clothing, while a humid, warm space is ripe for bug problems.
  • Choose the Right Containers: It can be tempting and convenient to store winter clothes in that cardboard box that is laying around the house, but cardboard is terrible protection against humidity and bugs. Instead Laundromat recommends using clear, air-tight, plastic containers, or vacuum-sealed bags.
  • Hang or Fold: When trying to deiced whether to hang or to fold different articles of winter clothing, a good rule of thumb is to go by the type of fabric they are made of. For natural fibers like cashmere and wool it is best to fold to prevent them from becoming over stretched. When hanging clothes make sure to use the correct type of hangar. For example, thin materials like silk and cotton can be drawn out by unpadded hangers. For more information on which types of hangers to use for certain materials, contact professionals such as those at Laundromat.
  • Avoid Mold and Mothballs: If clothing not packed away and stored correctly then the chances of mold and bug dramatically increase. To fight these, many people use mothballs but mothballs have a distinctly bad scent, instead experts like those at Laundromat recommend alternatives like lavender, cedar, and lemon rinds to keep winter clothes fresh and smelling good.

One more important things that should not be forgotten when cleaning and storing winter items is the cleaning and storage of winter linens or sheets. Many people are under the assumption that they should just be thrown into a closet or attic, but in order to take the best care of large comforters, blankets, and other winter linens there are certain steps that should be taken.

The best way to put up winter comforters, blankets and sheet is:

  • Clean and Repair: This may sound like a broken record, but taking the time to have comforters and blankets professionally washed can make all of the difference in the longevity of all linens.
  • Storing Correctly: Like with clothing it is important to store one’s winter linens in a cool, dry place that is dark. Many storage experts also recommend using vacuum sealed bags in order to save space that these bulky items would otherwise occupy, in addition vacuum sealed bags do an excellent job keeping bugs and other nastiness out, so long as the comforters and blankets have been professionally cleaned beforehand.
