Mar 25, 2020 | News Page

Dorset based Barker, the largest domestic laundry in the UK and a leading specialists Dry Cleaner, is promoting its contactless dry cleaning and laundry services and advises its clients that effective laundering and dry cleaning will help to kill Coronavirus germs.

MD Matthew Barker said, “We already provide a private laundry service across Greater London and southern England to approximately 3,500 customers, providing a weekly collection and delivery laundry service.

“In the current Coronavirus pandemic we have decided to extend our collection and delivery services. Maintaining a clean environment is more important than ever to protect our health and we urge clients and potential clients to use our services to help eliminate the risk of catching and spreading COVID -19.

“There is much ongoing research currently being undertaken to establish the temperature at which the virus is killed, albeit this is currently undetermined. In our dry cleaning process and our ‘fully finished’ laundry service process we subject fabrics to way in excess of 60 degrees celsius and are confident that these temperatures are sufficient to kill the virus. Our service washes, however, are at lower temperatures.”

Anyone wishing to enquire about prices and further details on how to book a laundry or dry cleaning collection slot is advised to contact the Barker Group on Tel: 01202 291295 or send an email
