Policy for Premium Laundry & Dry Clean
All the Premium wash and Dry-clean items are cleaned under optimal conditions and packed separately as per garment nature.
When items are handed over to us here at Desi Laundry, we handle these said items with the utmost care. Our cleaning staff individually inspects each garment and chooses the best way to clean them. We will always individually inspect clothes for Dry Cleaning but keep in mind that we will always look at the wash care label of the garment for the manufacturers specified cleaning instructions.
Wash Care Label Instructions: We exercise great care in processing your articles and use methods best suited to the nature and condition of each article. We clean in accordance with the wash care label instructions. In the absence of this we will consult you but, not be liable in the event that the chosen method damages your clothes.
Although we are unable to accept responsibility for loss or damage to beads, crystals, sequins, buttons, diamante, pearls, buckles, metals etc., due to their inherent unsuitability for dry cleaning, we have unrivaled skill and experience in identifying the most appropriate cleaning methods for each specific piece having examined it’s decorative components.
This is a design issue rather than a cleaning one – we have to rely to a certain extent on the fact that the dressmaker/ manufacturer has attached the beads adequately and has used beads which are suitable for dry cleaning – although we will of course do our best to check and test the components before cleaning.
If a garment is found without the wash care label all such items are cleaned at the owner’s risk, as we will not take responsibility under any circumstances.
Because garments have the tendency for wear and tear, we cannot be held responsible for the weaknesses that garments have due to this aspect. Items such as, but not limited to, suede, leather, and fur have the tendency to weaken over time. Responsibility must also be disclaimed for other aspects of the garments, such as trimmings, buckles, belts, beads, buttons, and sequins etc… In the dry cleaning process, we cannot guarantee that the garments will not shrink or change color or lose color.
All such items are cleaned at the owner’s risk, as we will not take responsibility under any circumstances.
Suede & Leather: Suede & Leather garments are examples of materials that have inherent weaknesses or defects in the material. They are subject to natural flaws. We cannot take responsibility for color imbalance, shrinkage’s, change of texture. The use of incorrect adhesives during garment manufacture to secure hems and other parts or borg linings may result in the adhesive coming to the surface during cleaning, and showing as stains on the surface of the garment and linings and stitches may come apart.
Stain Care: We do not guarantee the removal of all stains. Customers are responsible to mention all the stains when they leave the garments with us. By leaving your stained items with us for stain care; you confirm that you accept our terms and conditions. We will only process stained items under owner’s risk, and the results can not be guaranteed. This means, in the event that the chosen method of processing damages your item we will not be held liable, it is entirely at your own risk.
We aim to remove all stains but in some cases this is not possible. The chances of stain removal are reduced if any non-professional techniques have been applied such as the use of water or soda etc…
We treat problematic stains with great caution but sometimes to achieve results we need to use harsher techniques and chemicals. We may not be able to guarantee the results.
We do not promise to remove or treat any stain that is on any article of clothing. We will try our best, however, some stains will be tough to remove. However, there are some stains that have been scientifically proven to only appear in the presence of water or heat. Such stains have a sugar base, like stains from alcohol or juice.
Much as we would dearly love to guarantee to our customers the removal of every mark and stain from every type of material, we are unfortunately are unable to do so.
We do our best to carefully inspect and tag or label each piece of clothing in order to prevent missing or misplacement’s. If your garment is not suitable for tagging or labeling, kindly do not give it for cleaning, any damages happened during tagging or result of tagging or post tagging we hold no responsibility of it.
We will use reasonable efforts to maintain a high quality laundry service. We accept no liability for damage due to normal cleaning of items without care instructions and accept no liability for items treated in accordance with the care labels or other instructions provided.
We are not liable for clothing discoloring, shrinking, natural or periodic wear and tear or otherwise changing as a result of normal washing procedures. We reserve the right to refuse to clean any garment.
In addition to this, any garment deliberately torn or damaged by the customer or manufacturer, such as torn denim or torn clothing or patched clothing or shredded clothing will never be accepted in a claim.
Although we are unable to accept responsibility for loss or damage to beads, crystals, sequins, buttons, diamante, pearls, buckles, metals, prints, graphics etc., due to their inherent unsuitability for dry cleaning, we have unrivaled skill and experience in identifying the most appropriate cleaning methods for each specific piece having examined it’s decorative components.
We 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, jewellery or any other item.
