Laundry Care Providers/Partners

Laundry Care Providers/Partners are independent contractors of Laundry Care. Laundry Care Providers/Partners are responsible for establishing routines with respect to your service needs, such as pick-up/drop-off schedules, specific laundering instructions and personal preferences. Laundry Care Providers/Partners have independent control over the means and methods of providing services as well as the products used in your laundering care. Each Laundry Care Provider/Partner, however, is held to the high standards of customer service and quality performance established by Laundry Care. If you ever have a praise, problem or concern with your service, please do not hesitate to contact your Provider/Partner directly or Laundry Care, . Both Laundry Care and your Provider/Partner value your business and care about providing excellent service to you.

Pick-up/Delivery

All services will be provided by a Laundry Care Provider/Partner assigned to you. Pick-up/Delivery will take place on a predetermined day and frequency, except on certain holidays, as determined by you. Laundry Care or you may change the predetermined pick-up/delivery times, permanently or temporary, with advance notice by either you or Laundry Care. Laundry Care requires at least 1 hour notice prior to any change.

If you’d like to leave your items at a secure spot for pick up, it will be at your own risk. This is also true for delivery. Items left for pick up are not under our care until we have retrieved said items. Items left for delivery at the predetermined location will not be under our care once they have been left at the agreed upon location. Laundry Care and its Providers/Partners are not responsible for, and shall not pay for, any loss, damage or theft of items left unattended by the customer for pick-up or delivery. Laundry Care will not leave items in the possession of any other person that is not the owner of those items unless the owner has given consent. The customer is responsible for ensuring that his/her laundry is delivered safely to the Laundry Care Provider/Partner.

Missed/Unattended Pick-up or Delivery

If the customer misses a scheduled pick-up or delivery, the customer must coordinate with their Laundry Care Provider/Partner to reschedule the pick-up or delivery during the next available day and time. Customer may be subject to a missed pick up fee or missed drop off fee for failing to notify their Provider/Partner 24 Hours prior to the scheduled pick up/delivery. Payment

Residential customers: Service will not begin until Laundry Care has secured payment information via a valid & current credit card. Residential clients will be charged for services rendered prior to delivery. Services that have been paid for in advance but go unused do not carry over from week to week or from service term to service term. All online payments are processed through Laundry Care’s secured payment system. Laundry Care does not accept cash but does accept checks for commercial accounts only. Contact us at info@laundrycare.biz if you wish to request an alternative payment arrangement. Laundry Care reserves the right to change prices at any time. Payment should never be made directly to the Laundry Care Provider/Partner. If additional services outside of the customer’s initial request are requested, the customer authorizes Laundry Care to charge the fee for such services to his/her credit card on file.

New Commercial customers are under a 90-day introductory period and are not eligible for monthly billing during this time. Invoices are processed according to your requested payment terms (Due upon receipt, Net 5, Net 10). Weekly Invoicing is available for clients that receive more than one service pick up per week. Weekly invoices are processed on the first business day of the following service week. All invoices require payment within a maximum of 10 days of receipt (Net 10). Payments received after the Net 10 may incur a late fee of 1.5% of the invoice total. Invoices outstanding for more than 20 days may cause a disruption in service. Commercial customers in good standing for more than 90 days are eligible to request monthly billing. Services provided during a given month will be billed on the first business day of the following month.

Customer acknowledges that items that have been air-dried (per customer request or Laundry Care’s determination for best garment care) may be damp upon delivery.

The customer is responsible for any and all damage caused by any items left in the customer’s clothing or Laundry Bag that causes damage to the clothing of any customer, the cleaning machines, or any other property of the Laundry Care Provider/Partner.

Laundry Care desires to provide high quality laundering services and will use all reasonable precautions to avoid damage to clothes. Laundry Care and its Laundry Care Providers/Partners, however, are not liable for any damage due to normal laundering of items, cleaning of items without care instructions, for dry clean items placed inside Laundry Bags, for special-processing items (delicate-wash, air-dry, stain-treatment) not placed in a separate bag, damage resulting from items left in the clothing, bleeding of colors, shrinking or any other alteration resulting from normal washing procedures. Laundry Care will follow any reasonable instructions provided by the customer, including water or drying temperatures.

Although Laundry Care Providers/Partners use their best efforts to remove stains, stain removal is not guaranteed. Laundry Care Providers/Partners may refuse to clean any garment at their sole discretion.

Laundry Care will re-clean items that, in its sole discretion, were not properly cleaned and have not been worn since they were cleaned, at no additional cost. Laundry Care and its subcontractors are not responsible for loss of or damage to any personal or non-cleanable items left in the clothing or laundry bags such as money, jewelry, or any other item. The customer agrees not to leave such items in their clothing or in their laundry bags. Zippers behave unpredictably while cleaning. Although zippers generally are not an issue, the customer is notified that there is a possibility of zipper issues while following normal wash procedures, and Laundry Care, does not accept any liability for such issues.

Inventory Sheets

Inventory sheets are available upon the request of the customer. The customer should fully and accurately complete this sheet and include them in the Laundry Bag. Laundry Care and the Laundry Care Providers/Partners are not responsible for any item which does not appear on the inventory sheet. We will notify you immediately if there is any discrepancy between what appears on the inventory sheet and the items in the Laundry Bag. Such discrepancies may cause delays as we will not proceed with washing without resolving the discrepancy with you. Laundry Care reserves the right to complete an inventory sheet for customers who have not provided one themselves without notice to the customer.

Reporting Lost or Damaged Items

Missing or damaged items must be reported to Laundry Care within 24 hours of return of your laundered clothes. Failure to report the missing or damaged item(s) within 24 hours shall remove any liability of Laundry Care for the missing or damaged item. In the event that any item is lost or damaged by Laundry Care , Laundry Care will issue the customer a refund or credit for the value of that item as Ohiod in this paragraph. If a customer is able to provide proof of purchase and purchase amount of the lost or damaged item, Laundry Care will provide a full refund, up to $50 per item with a maximum total reimbursement of $200 per household/location. If a customer is unable to provide proof of purchase, Laundry Care will issue the customer a refund or credit for the value of that item as specified in the National Fair Claims Guide from the International Fabricare Institute (“IFI”). This guide takes into account the average life of the garment, depreciation for the age of the item, and the current replacement cost. If the customer is unable to document the age of a garment, Laundry Care reserves the right to limit the maximum age of any garment to one year. If no current replacement cost is available Laundry Care reserves the right to use the replacement cost of a comparable item currently available. Laundry Care and Laundry Care Providers/Partners are not liable for any preexisting damage to a garments or other item and reserves the right to return any item without cleaning it if any preexisting damage is found or if we have a concern about the colorfastness or the age or weakness of the fabric.
