In the past, ironing services were handled by the “lady around the corner” or the family friend. This method has proven in many cases to be unsuccessful due to inconsistent quality & service or simply, the contractor may smoke and/or have animals – the clothes come back with a distinct and unattractive odour. Garments today are not only more expensive, but more fragile as they are made with a mix of natural or artificial colours and fibres and tend to require a lot more care. Trusting your clothing to just anyone can often end up being a very costly exercise.
The Ironing Shops concept was derived from the understanding of the demand and sympathising with families that have had bad experiences in the past. The aim of The Ironing Shops was to provide a service that would alleviate the many hours spent on domestic chores such as ironing.
