To Our Persnickety Customers,
Our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19). As our customer, we want you to know that your health and safety as well as the health and safety of our employees is our top priority.
We are continually monitoring the situation with information from the CDC, World Health Organization, OSHA, and the Dry Cleaning and Laundry Institute. We are frequently cleaning surfaces that customers, employees and clothing contact such as countertops, keyboard and mouse, door handles, laundry carts, equipment handles and credit card terminals. You can be sure our cleaning products meet EPA standards for destroying coronavirus. We have provided surgical gloves to employees who are handling soiled clothing. Other standards include washing hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, avoiding touching of the face, and advising all employees to stay home if feeling unwell.
The best information available indicates that the virus can only live outside of a person for perhaps 20 minutes, but could last up to 24 hours on fabrics or bedding that is contaminated with body fluids, etc. The CDC states that dry cleaning is effective at killing nearly all viruses and bacteria. However, the exact temperature and time required for Coronavirus is not yet known. If Coronavirus acts like other known viruses, then it too is killed in the drying phase of dry cleaning, hot water wash (at 60C), and when pressing or steaming clothing with a hot steam press.
Please refer to this helpful link for information we are using to keep our customers and employees safe.
