Dry cleaning isn’t necessarily something people think about a lot but choosing a dry cleaner is an important decision. The quality of your dry cleaner can make a big difference in the quality of service.
Your clothes and household items are investments and you want quality cleaning as well as quality customer service. When choosing a dry cleaner, you want someone you can trust to handle your items with care.
So, what should you look for in a dry cleaner?
Tips for choosing a dry cleaner
Quality of Service
Ask friends and family what dry cleaner they use and if they would recommend them. It’s simple to check out online reviews for businesses. Often all you have to do is Google the name, and you’ll see reviews right on the side. But remember to always read through a few of them and take them with a grain of salt.
When reading reviews, be sure to focus on how they treat the clothes. Your clothes are expensive. If they’re going to be treated poorly, it’s going to cost you in the long run.
Do they just offer dry cleaning? There may be other services you need such as alterations and professional wash, dry and fold services. If you need a shirt repaired, can the dry cleaner do it? If you have a special occasion such as a wedding coming up, can the dry cleaner handle cleaning and alterations for the wedding party?
You should also find out where the cleaning takes place. Some dry cleaning shops do the cleaning on-site. Others are drop-off and pick-up locations that send the clothes to a central processing facility. Your clothes might not get the personalized attention they’d get if processed on-site.
Although you may think it’s essential that the dry cleaner is near your home, you could also choose a cleaner that offers free pick-up and delivery service. You will get high-quality service as well as convenience.
You should also ask if the dry cleaner has an app where you can schedule the free pick-up and delivery and learn about VIP specials.
Price is a factor when considering where to get anything done. However, the old adage “you get what you pay for” is very often true. You can get high-quality at fair, competitive rates. There may be other factors you should consider in the price as well such as free pick up and delivery.
