Sunshine will remain open during this time and continue to provide services with limited hours and curbside service at our storefront. Dry cleaners and laundries are considered essential services since we use methods to kill virus and bacteria in our cleaning processes. Some of our fellow citizens do not have laundry services readily available to them during this time. Please let us know how we can help our fellow citizens.
Online customers should prepare for delay in service. We are operating with a smaller staff and service times will be effected.
Our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Sunshine Cleaners is a family business and family comes first here at Sunshine. Our employees and customers health and safety is our top priority.
We are continually monitoring the situation with information available from the CDC, World Health Organization, OSHA, and the Drycleaning and Laundry Institute. We are frequently cleaning surfaces that customers, employees and clothing frequently contact such as counter-tops, keyboard and mouse, door handles, laundry carts, equipment handles and credit card terminals. You can be sure our cleaning products meet EPA standards for destroying corona-virus. We have provided surgical gloves to employees who are handling soiled clothing. Other standards include washing hands with soap and water for 20 seconds; avoiding touching of the face; and advising all associates to stay home if feeling unwell.
The best information available indicates that the virus can only live outside of a person for perhaps 20 minutes, but could last up to 24 hours on fabrics or bedding that is contaminated with body fluids, etc. The CDC states that dry cleaning is effective at killing nearly all viruses and bacteria, however the exact temperature and time required for COVID-19 is not yet known. If COVID-19 acts like other known viruses, then it too is killed in the drying phase of dry cleaning, hot water wash (at 60C), and when pressing or steaming clothing with a hot steam press.
