Online Laundry Service Hopes to Clean Up

Paul Partyka |

CHICAGO — Will an online service that connects people who need a laundry service with those offering such a service clean up? is a laundry network that offers laundry and drycleaning services to clients, vendors and independent house-cleaning brokers.Laundromats as well as anyone with a home washer and dryer interested in making some extra money doing other peoples’ laundry are invited to be part of the online offering.While Laundromats utilize commercial equipment to handle clothing, it will be interesting to see whether someone who desires to have their clothing washed and dried will entrust it to someone operating out of their home. If a "home" operation damages the clothing, will the client receive any type of compensation?Laundromat owners can register on the site, add their business location or locations with services they offer at each location like wash and fold, drycleaning, stain removal, odor removal, button replacement, alterations and tailoring.Clients looking for laundry pickup can visit the website and search for a laundry vendor in their area using their zip code in relation to their proximity and schedule an appointment online. The vendor immediately gets an alert via e-mail, text message or an automated voice message via telephone. The vendor can in real-time respond confirming the message via voice or text by pressing “one to confirm” or “two to cancel” or just by texting “yes” or “no” to confirm or cancel the appointment.The website will also cater to those looking for house-cleaning or maid service.
