How do I prepare my garments for the first pickup

For the Designated pick up / drop off spot we want an area that has protection from the element of possible inclement weather. Usually this is at the front door, but it could be side door, back door or in the garage (especially if you have a keypad). There should be an over the door hanger or hook to leave your freshly pressed items. If you need a over the door hanger let us know and we can provide one.

We understand that some houses have unique challenges. If you are unsure about the best spot just reach out to us and our drivers can help suggest the best option for your home.

After an area is chosen please let us know by sending an email to customerservice@parkwaycleaner.com to let us know the best designated drop off area.

Laundered Shirts

Men’s dress shirts can be cleaned and pressed in one of two ways. They are laundered and machine pressed on an semi-automated process. 

Let me explain the laundered process:
Shirts are inspected for stains and all buttons are opened. The shirts are then cleaned in a laundry washing. In the wash cycle process we inject Duval Energy (a general degreaser from Krussler). We also inject a shot of sizing during the finial rinse. After the shirts are cleaned they are them pressed through the automated process. First the wet shirts are placed on the cuff and collar press. This is where a curved hot plate will press and dry the cuff and collar of the shirt. It is the. Moved to the “buck press”. This is basically a torso that is dressed with the shirt. Next 2 hot plated come together and press the front and back of the shirt while hot air and steam is blown through the sleeves. The shirts start this process wet and come off dry. This is designed for mid weight cotton dress shirt with standard buttons.

We review every item we clean and will make the determination whether the item should be wet/ dry cleaned and hand pressed or to launder and machine press the shirt.

Yes. This option is available for customers who travel or have limited closet space.

We have the option to box per order or always.

Customers have the option of no starch , starch or heavy starch.
At Parkway Cleaners we add an application of sizing to all of our laundered shirts

When choosing to starch or not to starch consider these three attributes of starch:

  • Comfort – No starch is generally more comfortable.
  • Wrinkles – Freshly pressed shirts are generally wrinkle free and appear smoother when starched. When you introduce starch, over the course of the day, wrinkles will eventually appear, and when starched will be more pronounced.
  • Textile Wear – The frequent and heavy use of starch can cause the fabric become brittle, weak and stiff reducing the lifespan of the shirt.

You can have smooth shirts without starching. When purchasing shirts, select 100% cotton. In general, cotton will look smoother and crisper after pressing than poly-blend fabrics.

Men’s dress shirts can be cleaned and pressed in one of two ways. They are either laundered and machine pressed on an automated process or wet/dry cleaned and hand pressed. The machine pressed process is designed for mid weight cotton shirts that have standard flat buttons.
There are several reasons why a shirt would be hand-pressed versus using the automated process. The most common that we see are shirts that have darts, have more body contour which many slim fit shirts have. The other common reason is if the shirt has unique characteristics including the following:
• mother of pearl buttons
• unique buttons
• thick buttons
• concave shaped buttons
• designer shirts with unique embroidery on the cuff and collar
• shirts that are limited edition and are difficult to find,
• dark shirts could develop a shine on the cuff and collar especially imprints of collar tabs
• shirts made of linen, silk, polyester or spandex,
• shirts that have a light weight fabric
• textured shirts such as seersucker. The automated process will flatten and remove the textured feel after repeated pressings.

Wash and Fold Service

Wash and fold is designed for your general laundry. We will wash, dry and neatly fold general laundry items ( t shirts, pants, nightwear, underwear socks etc.) Even your socks will be paired together.
The difference between this service and our dry clean per piece service is that items are not pressed.
All item will be sorted based on Men’s items, Women’s item, small child etc. and placed in plastic bags that will be put in a Garantote. ( this is a large tote bag made from polypropylene which works well for Wash and Fold.) The end result is that sorting items at home will be as easy as possible.

Yes, we can take special requests for your Wash and fold.  Some examples are:

  • Use Sent & Dye free detergent
  • Use Dryer Sheets
  • Put towels together
  • Bag sheet sets separately

No we will sort your items into lights and darks

 

No, Parkway Cleaners has you covered. We have mesh laundry bags that we’ll use as needed to protect your items from anything with a velcro opening, hook-and-eye clasp fasteners, or any other types of closures that might harm the other things in your load.

Don’t worry! It’s part of our process to always check all pockets.  We will return found items to you when we return your clean clothes.

Yes, we use a detergent called Trebon which is effective at cleaning and sanatizing.
