How can I request commercial laundry services for my business?

Commercial laundry is a passion of ours. Head over to our commercial page and complete the short laundry assessment form.

Should I launder or dry clean my items?
We understand that it can be difficult to know if an item is safe to clean in a standard washing machine. We pay close attention to fabric types to ensure that we clean your garments correctly. However, please let us know if you have any specific cleaning requests for your garments, and we will do our best to accommodate them.

How long can I expect my laundered shirt to last?
The lifespan of a shirt varies depending on the fabric, cut, wear and tear, and number of washings. A good rule of thumb is that a normal laundered shirt will last for about 35 to 50 washings, which means that a shirt with average wear and tear will last for about 2 years. This is roughly the same amount of time that fashion trends change!

Why do my buttons break?
Over time, buttons can become brittle and prone to breaking. At Fox Cleaners, we understand how frustrating it can be to find a missing button on an outfit, so we automatically replace standard buttons free of charge when we clean your items.

Why did I get a spot tag returned with my garment?
Some stains are too delicate to remove without the risk of damaging your garment. We always strive to remove all stains without causing any damage, but in some cases, we may need to ask for your permission before proceeding. If you receive a "Spot tag," we are happy to re-attempt stain removal with your approval.

What kind of cleaning methods do you use?
Fox Cleaners uses environmentally friendly solutions and ozone technology to clean heavily damaged fabrics, including those impacted by smoke or mold. We can not only clean these fabrics but also neutralize odors, leaving your clothes smelling fresh and clean without any heavy perfumes.

Can you clean items damaged by smoke, mold, or water?
Yes, fabric restoration is one of our specialties! We can clean items damaged by fire, smoke, and other stubborn odors, including smoke, mold, and pet smell.
