Dry cleaning and coronavirus

Does dry cleaning kill coronavirus, also known as COVID 19? We are all asking questions about how coronavirus can be transmitted and how it is killed.

According to the DLI (Dry Cleaning & Laundry Institute): “As is true with other viruses, laundering in hot water, 160 degrees F and with chlorine bleach is the most effective method for sanitizing laundry.  If hot water and chlorine bleach are not safe for the items then laundering with a disinfectant product is an option. The CDC states the laundering with detergent alone is an effective method.”

Here’s excellent information from GreenEarth Cleaning, one of the leading dry cleaning solvent manufacturers: “….COVID-19 virus, if it behaves similarly to other viruses that have been tested, the GreenEarth process is the most effective dry cleaning method available to inactivate bacteria and viruses and to potentially inactivate the COVID-19 virus as well.”

At The Green Van Dry Cleaning & Laundry, we are taking every precaution in all of our business units (dry cleaning, commercial laundry, residential wash & fold laundry) to follow CDC procedures and best practices. This weekend, our laundry plant and vehicles underwent a thorough cleaning and disinfecting process. We are committed to the safety of our team members, our customers, and the general public.

We anticipate that we, and other laundry services, will likely experience an increase in demand for our services. This is because we have the equipment and expertise to assure thorough cleaning of bedding, blankets, sheets, comforters, sleeping bags for our residential customers. Also, we anticipate that our residential customers will have a heightened awareness of the need to dry clean their wardrobe (suits, sport coats, wool coats, etc.). And the medical and dental practices in our area will undoubtedly increase their level of hygiene -specifically as it relates to lab coats and scrubs.

We will work to serve our current customers and new customers with the highest levels of professionalism and safety.

Thank you for trusting The Green Van Dry Cleaning & Laundry for your dry cleaning, commercial laundry, and residential wash & fold needs.
