Laundry & Dry Cleaning
What is Hang Dry?
Hang dry is when an item is laundered in a washing machine, but hung on premium quality, plastic hangers to allow it to air dry. These items may come back wet. Wetness will depend on both the material the garment is made from, as well as the thickness.
What is Wash & Fold?
Our Wash & Fold service is the standard washing process includes separating of whites and colors and premium eco-friendly detergents.
What is Dry Cleaning?
Dry cleaning is a cleaning process that uses solvent instead of water to clean fabrics and garments. It is used to clean fabrics that degrade in water, as well as delicate fabrics that cannot withstand the rough and tumble of a washing machine and clothes dryer.
What types of clothing should be dry cleaned?
The care instructions on an item provides information if an item is to be dry cleaned or not.
What is the difference between Dry Cleaning and Laundered Shirts?
Dry Cleaning is a cleaning process that uses solvent versus water to clean fabrics and garments. While laundered Shirts are for standard men’s button down shirts only. They are are separated by color and washed in industrial washing machines.
Then the shirts are placed on a custom shirt pressing machine that presses the collars, cuffs, sleeves and body of the shirt.
Car Wash & Detailing
Do you do same day bookings?
Yes we do take same day bookings, but it ultimately depends on
whether we have any helpers available since we are often fully booked days in advance.
What days do you operate?
We operate 7 days a week .
Do you have any recurring plans?
We certainly do. Many of our customers have their cars washed on a regular fortnightly basis and often opt for an upgrade to a car detail every few months as needed.
Select a recurring plan / package also allows you to receive 15% off the original price. In selecting a recurring plan, your bookings will be secured for every following fortnight at the same time and billed the day after the service.
What is the difference between a car wash and car detailing?
Washing your car regularly and detailing your vehicle goes a long distance towards maintaining that “new car” feel and look.
Both services will certainly maintain your vehicle. However, a detailing will cater to the intricate needs of your vehicle. We do recommend detailing your car every couple of months to keep it in top shape.
Once you have detailed your car it makes it much easier to maintain the cleanliness with subsequent regular washes.
Ultimately the difference between a car wash and car detail comes down to time and effort. As the name suggests, car detailing requires a greater attention to detail and this can often mean extra tools/equipment, higher grade products and the use of more product.
Whether you are in need of a car detail or a car wash will depend on your expectations and what you need completed. If you are looking for a regular wash to maintain your vehicle then a car wash may be best for you. If you are looking to resell your vehicle for maximal value, a car detail would be a great cost-effective way to do so. Although this does not mean that detailing is only for people looking to sell, but for those looking to restore their pride and joy.
