Laundrapp is the disruptive laundry and dry cleaning business helping households all over the country manage their laundry and dry cleaning from the safety of their homes, all through their easy-to-use app - and now the service has landed in Stockport, Cheshire and Greater Manchester.
The company, which won Best App at The Startup Awards and has been featured as App of the Day on the Apple App Store, is celebrating their recent expansion by running a prize draw for £250 of Laundrapp credit, enough for two 6kg laundry loads a week, for 8 weeks.
A life saver during lockdown
For those shielding due to COVID-19, Laundrapp has provided a safe alternative to having to visit the local launderette or high street dry cleaners. They provide a contact-free collection of your items from your home, take them away to be cleaned, and then return them spotless - all within 48 hours.
One Trustpilot user said "Laundering sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers is difficult and time-consuming. Living in a flat I don't really have the space here to dry items.
Having the Laundrapp collection and delivery service to the door continue during lockdown has been a real help and I'm so grateful to all the staff who have continued to work through this period."
Laundrapp has also been a saviour to over-stretched families juggling home-schooling, housework and working from home, with 92% of Mumsnet users surveyed recommending the service.
A call out to the 1 in 3 Brits who wash their bedding just once a year
A recent survey found that a massive 30% of British people admit to only washing their bedding annually, a statistic that Allan Warburton, Managing Director of Laundrapp, says is worryingly high.
Allan, who is from Gatley in South Manchester, commented "We know that washing sheets and bedding can be time-consuming and tricky, especially in the winter months when it takes longer for items to dry out, but it's particularly important during flu season.
Check the care label - most bedding can and should be washed at a high temperature to kill germs and help keep them white. Ironing your sheets will not only make your sheets feel extra soft, but will help destroy any residual bacteria too.
Our bedding cleaning service includes washing, tumble drying and ironing as standard, saving you countless hours and giving you hotel-grade comfort at home."
