With delivery services such as DoorDash, UberEats, Amazon Prime, PeaPod, etc., at-home pickup and delivery has been gaining in popularity among residential and commercial communities every year. Of course, the pandemic changed so much of the way we do business – people today tend to favor contactless purchases, avoid large communal gatherings, and maintain a sanitary environment. Many people still work from home, but they are still very busy – some more busy than ever before with the shortage of labor and the rise in demand of products and services.

Laundry pickup and delivery services offer many of the benefits that today’s customer wants. If you have been thinking about starting to do your laundry with a wash-dry-fold service, here are five things you should know before you schedule your first wash load.

Pickup and Delivery Laundry Is Convenient

If your family relies on the local laundromat to get your wash done, you may want to give a laundry pickup and delivery service like Drop & Dash Laundry Service a try. Simply collect your items, bag your clothes and linens, schedule your service, and leave your clothes in a convenient location for our drivers to pick up your laundry. You won’t need to spend hours feeding machines, moving laundry from one machine to another, and folding all of your clothes after they are dry.

Even homes with appliances can benefit. Instead of having to remember to do your laundry at home, rushing around, forgetting to put the clothes in the dryer (whew! That’s not a great smell), and taking the time to fold laundry, you can have it all done for you at a reasonable price.

It Can Save You Money and Electricity

As we mentioned, all of those hours every week you spend at home or at the local laundromat can be saved with just a few quick movements. Just imagine what you can get done with all that time. You also won’t need to expend all of the electricity, gas, and water it takes to do the laundry at home. You’ll save money on your utility bills by doing your laundry in a facility with high-efficiency equipment minimizing the impact on the environment. Our machines are also faster than most at-home appliances, so there’s less time spent on running equipment.

It Supports Local Small Business

We’re a small family-owned and operated business. Did you know that, according to the Small Business Administration (SBA), small businesses make up 99.7% of all of the businesses in the United States which makes up 49.2% of total employment and 64% of new job creation. Supporting local small businesses helps your local Chicago community to thrive.

It Can Save You Money 

We already talked about saving money on your home utilities. But, getting your clothes professionally cleaned means that your clothes will last longer. How many times have you thrown something in the wash only to have it wear out or get destroyed. With gentle but thorough cleaning with a pickup and delivery laundry service, your clothes will last longer meaning fewer trips to the clothing store.

Your Laundry Gets Cleaner

As we said before, when you do laundry at home or at the laundromat, you aren’t getting your clothes professionally cleaned. That’s okay. But, if you really want soft, fluffy, comfortable clothes which smell great and are deeply clean, that’s when you can trust the pros at Drop & Dash to tackle your stains. Our state-of-the-art facilities have some of the latest technology in laundry including Chicago’s Only Ozone Power Wash! This is a real game changer.
