6.       Stain Removal 

6.1.     It is your responsibility to make us aware of any stains on the Order Form prior to submitting your Order. PingLocker makes no guarantee that it will get all stains out when carrying out the Cleaning Service, but we will make every effort to remove stains without damage to your garment. 

7.       Damage 

7.1.     PingLocker will use processes which in our opinion are best suited to the nature and conditions of each individual garment. Nevertheless, we cannot assume responsibility for inherent weaknesses or defects in materials which may result in tears or the development of small holes in fabric that are not readily apparent prior to proceeding. We cannot guarantee against colour loss, colour bleeding and shrinkage; or against damage to weak and tender fabrics.  Precautions will be taken to alleviate any problems where possible. 

7.2.      Given the delicate nature of some leathers and suede’s, all leather and suede garments are cleaned entirely at your own risk, and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for any damage or fading as a result of the Cleaning Service. 

8.       Wash and Fold Orders

8.1.      Checking Items - Please ensure to thoroughly check all the garments for hazardous items e.g. coins, pens, keys, etc. as we hold no responsibility for any items lost or damaged as a result of the cleaning process.

8.2.      Washing and Drying Process - The load is washed at a 30-degree cycle and tumble dried on a medium heat. As we process a high volume we will not be able to cater to personal requirements (e.g. temperature, washing powders, etc.). Please note that the items are not ironed.

8.3.      Colour Separation - We will separate the clothes into lights and darks for you. Although we will take the utmost care in doing this we will accept no responsibility if there is any bleeding or colour transfer during the cleaning process.

8.4.      Size of Bag - We will measure the laundry by weight. The minimum weight is 6kg and every kg over 6kg we will charge accordingly. We will update this after we have weighed it at the facility and you will receive a confirmation email. Any orders below 6kg will be charged at the minimum price for 6kg.

8.5.      Damaged Items - We will not be liable for damage to items as we wash by the load and do not inspect the care labels of each garment. For garments that need to be specially treated i.e. leather, silk, cashmere, fur, velvet and other delicate garments, please ensure that these items can be machine washed and tumble dried.

8.6.      Excluded Items - The Wash and Fold will not include any bedding and towelling products. If these are included then it will be added as an individual product and your bill will be amended accordingly.

8.7.      Tagging - Laundry items are tagged by the load and not individually tagged. Therefore, we cannot accept any liability for missing items.

9.1.1.Shrinkage occurring.

Please note your Items may not be delivered to the same location as Drop Off, you may request a different location for collection and this may incur a further charge which will be notified to you.
