The city of Miami is one of the busiest international seaports along the Atlantic coast and Florida’s most populated metropolitan area. Consequently, it is also the home to some beautiful beaches, amazing clubs and restaurants, a vibrant nightlife, and some terrific shopping venues. As if this weren’t enough, all of the major professional sports are represented here in Miami as well. Combine all of this with holding down a career job and you have to wonder, “Who has enough time to do their own laundry?”
Fortunately, Sir Galloway Dry Cleaners has the answer to that specific question. Our family owned and operated laundry business in Miami has been providing customers with our professional dry cleaning services for over 30 years. During that time, we have established ourselves as one of the most trusted names in the Miami laundry service industry. Needless to say, we take a great deal of care and pride in the services we offer our customers.
It’s a Matter of Economics
In addition to our comprehensive line of professional services, we’re excited to tell you about our “Wash n Fold” service for people who just don’t have the time to their laundry during the week. Granted, there still are some individuals who prefer to wash, dry, and press their clothing at home because they think they can save money that way. But you’re not being realistic if you think that doing your laundry at home is cheaper than our professional laundry services in Miami.
In fact, you might be surprised when you see how economical our Wash and Fold services in Miami can be, so here’s something to think about. Let’s consider a few facts for the moment. Your washing machine and dryer both use electricity where it is used to heat the water in your washer and generate heat in your dryer. You pay for this very month on your utility bills. And let’s not forget about the cost of laundry detergent and dryer sheets or liquid fabric softener.
Then there are the not-so-obvious hidden costs to consider such as wear and tear on your washer and dryer (they depreciate with each usage). Plus, there’s the cost of your time involved in doing your laundry. With today’s hectic schedules, your time is most certainly a valuable commodity, don’t you think? The bottom line is that you might actually be saving money with Sir Galloway Dry Cleaners’ laundry by the pound services in Miami compared to doing it at home.
About Our Wash n Fold Service

Press/Dry Cleaning vs. Wash n Fold
You hear the terms “press/dry cleaning” and “wash n fold” a great deal in the laundry industry as though they can be used interchangeably to mean basically the same thing. This is incorrect. There are significant differences between the two terminologies. For instance, “pressing” or finishing as it is oftentimes called is the process of taking freshly dry-cleaned or laundered clothing and pressing out any wrinkles remaining in the fabric while at the same time reshaping them to their original form.
Wash N Fold involves laundering the fabric through the use of bleaching agents or detergents in the wash water, mechanical action, temperature settings, and time. The laundry is then folded professionally and prepared for you to take home and put it away. This laundry by the pound service in Miami can clean just about anything from bed linens and towels to jeans, shirts, and underwear.
2 Different Forms of Wash n Fold to Consider
There are two different types of Wash N Fold formats to be aware of – laundromat and professional. Sir Galloway Dry Cleaners offers the professional laundry Miami service which means that your garments will be washed meticulously in purified water using only solvents that are eco-friendly. Furthermore, we use the same folding techniques as the ones you see in major department stores. Not only is your laundry returned in spotless condition, it reduces the amount of seams and wrinkles that you see.
The following is a list of the many differences between our professional Wash N Fold laundry pick-up and delivery services and the laundromat version:
- delivery and pick-up are FREE of charge
- everything is cleaned according to the specifications of the manufacturer
- only 100% hypoallergenic solvents are used
- only eco-friendly detergents are used
- only purified water is used
- separation of garments is based on color, level of soiling, and type of fabric
- unsightly seams and wrinkles are prevented by meticulously folding the garment
- we adjust the dryer’s humidity setting based on the specific fabric type
- we prevent garment shrinkage by cooling down the last 10% of the drying cycle
Our Miami laundry service will soon have a mobile app for Android and Apple phones so you can get updates regarding your clothing whenever you like. But the biggest benefit to the customer is most likely the fact that you will save a lot of time by letting us do your laundry for you. And remember, with Sir Galloway Dry Cleaners, the difference is “Knight and Day.”
