A Message To Our Customers About COVID-19

July 1, 2020 11:00 am

Dry Cleaning is an “Essential and Life Sustaining” business – Anton’s is OPEN with modified hours

Why is Anton’s Cleaners an essential business?  Because the Center for Disease Control (CDC) states that garments and bedding must be cleaned at a temperature “above 167° F” in order to kill a virus.  Home washers and dryers cannot exceed 135 degrees.

At Anton’s, we use high-temperature steam (upwards of 300 degrees) as a standard part of our finishing process – effectively sterilizing without damaging your fabrics.

Modified Hours:

In response to the COVID-19 virus, we will be adjusting our hours of operation in all locations. Please visit antons.com/our-locations/ to view up to date information on your preferred location.

Anton’s Cleaners is committed to helping reduce the spread of disease in our community and safeguarding our customers by sterilizing your garments, bedding and other household items.  Sterilization is a standard part of our cleaning process.  If you are working from home, now is the time to gather up your spring cleaning.

Staying Informed:

We are regularly monitoring the developing global and local situation and following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Anton’s will continue to monitor expert guidance from these government agencies and health care officials, assessing risks and responding as needed. We have implemented numerous precautions and will continue to implement new actions daily to further ensure the safety of our community.

What We’re Doing:

Our top priority is keeping our employees and customers safe.

  • The CDC has clearly communicated that the most important preventative measure we can take is persistent, extensive cleaning. All Anton’s locations are undergoing rigorous cleaning practices beyond our regular cleaning schedules. This includes frequent cleaning of high-touch areas including counters, door handles, pin pads, 24-Hour Drop Boxes, Kiosks, etc.
  • We have increased the number of wipes, hand sanitizers, gloves, and other cleaning materials available at our locations for regular use by employees. Additionally, we are continually communicating with our employees the importance of personal hygiene and frequent hand washing.
  • All employees have been instructed to stay home if they or anyone in their homes are showing any signs of sickness.
  • Credit and Debit payments are preferred. If you are not already a VIP Express auto-charge customer, please plan to use a credit or debit card for payment. If you’d like to sign up as a VIP Express customer or add a credit card to your existing VIP account, click here.
