If you’ve ever stressed about having to get your laundry done before guests come over or worried that you wouldn’t be able to keep up with your housework while maintaining a full time job, a linen service might be the answer to your problems. Linen services come with a variety of options ranging from drop-off service to having someone come by your home and actually change out your linens. What you need and require from a linen service will vary based on your budget, household size and the fastness you require your linens to be finished.
How Linen Services Can Help
A linen service is a perfect option for anyone who is busy, who works frequently or who has a fast-paced lifestyle. A linen service can stop by your home to pick up your linens and then later return when the linens are clean. An alternate option is to drop off your linens at a cleaning office and then return to pick them up yourself. While it is certainly less expensive to drop off the linens at the store yourself, either option will save you time, money and stress. No longer will you need to stress about managing to get your laundry finished on time or rushing home from work to clean. Instead, you’ll be able to relax knowing that your linens are in good and capable hands.
Picking a Linen Service
Chances are, you have at least one linen service in your neighborhood. Feel free to interview potential linen services before you sign a contract or begin linen services. Ask questions like “How many linens can you clean at once?” and “How long does it take to get my linens back?” Make sure you feel comfortable and at ease with the service provider. You should never feel lazy or awkward for hiring a linen service. There is nothing wrong with hiring someone to help you with your linens. If you have friends or relatives who use a linen service, feel free to ask who they use. Chances are, they may even get a referral bonus or coupon for referring you to their service.
When you decide to use a linen service, make sure you are clear with the service about the cost. Some services charge per item, so make sure you know exactly how many items you are having washed and when you can expect to get them back. Additionally, get all prices in writing and make sure it is something you can agree on. If a price is too high, feel comfortable to negotiate.
