The biggest benefit that you get from a laundry service is saving of your time. Nowadays no one has the time to do their own washing. In any household, numerous items are produced each day in varying degrees of uncleanliness. These include everyday clothes, bed sheets, bed covers, towels, pillowcases, cushion covers, table-linen, and so on. Most people don’t have the time to do their laundry on a daily basis, and instead collect their dirty clothes to be washed over the weekend. But even this is a major chore, since people would like to spend their weekends for leisure activities, such as visiting friends and relatives, entertaining, or simply relaxing. Sending clothes and household fabrics to a professional laundry saves you a lot of time to spend on more productive activities.
Save your money: You might think that you save money by doing your laundry at home, but that’s not always the case. When you do your own laundry, you usually apply amounts of detergent by common sense, or general approximation. Most always, these amounts tend to be much more than what is needed for a load. Then there is the cost of electricity, which is considerable, since the motors of the washing machine and dryer eat humongous amounts of energy. By getting your fabrics washed at a professional laundry, you save substantial costs.
Save your energy: Doing laundry at home is a back-breaking chore, one that no one looks forward to. You may spend all of your energy in one morning of doing home laundry. After the laundry is done there is the additional chore of ironing the clothes, and folding them to be put away in their appropriate storage spaces. Getting a laundry service to do your laundry for you saves you the physical exhaustion you feel after doing your laundry at home.
Specialized washing for individual fabrics: This is a very important benefit that you derive by sending your fabrics to the laundry. When you do your laundry at home, you generally dump everything together in the washing machine – shirts, pants, blankets, towels, socks, underwear, canvas shoes – and turn on the machine. But this is definitely not the way to do laundry. Fabrics need to be separated according to their type, texture, color, weight, and quality. Different types of detergents need to be used for different types of fabrics. Then there are different cleaning processes for individual fabrics, and the dirt removal on each. Only a professional laundry has the resources and skills to do specialized washing for individual fabrics, including removal of stubborn stains and dirt. A professional laundry ensures that your expensive fabrics are in good hands and well taken care of.
Ironing and folding: Ironing clothes after the laundry is done and dried is a very laborious task.The regular home ironing board is okay for small garments, but much larger space is needed to properly lay out bigger garments, before the ironing can commence. Different fabrics need different temperature settings, and also different weights of the iron. Some fabrics may get completely damaged if hot iron is placed directly on them; for such fabrics, cotton or linen cloth needs to be placed on top of the fabric before starting to iron. Some fabrics need to be steam ironed in a vertical position on a hangar. After the ironing is done, the fabrics need to be folded. Rectangular shapes may not pose a problem, but irregular shapes, such as shirts and skirts are a headache to fold at home. A laundry service will take care of these various techniques of ironing and folding for you.
