Start-up looks to clean up with eco-friendly 'vending machines' offering cheaper rates.
Nick Harris is on a mission to revolutionise what he feels is an overpriced, 'dirty' dry cleaning industry which uses unnecessary, harmful chemicals - particularly perchloroethylene (perc) - to clean clothes.
He's hoping to tackle the industry on price and health through his new venture VDrop, which launched last month off the back of his cleaning business VClean Life.
The company have already been contacted by a number of drycleaning businesses who are keen to join forces and outsource their cleaning to reduce the impact traditional techniques have on the environment. VClean Life are now expanding their production and would like to talk with other like-minded cleaners who may be unable to invest in the latest machinery and technology, but still want to offer their customers an eco-friendly alternative and more effective service.
VClean Life launched their 11,500 square foot green-cleaning facility in Watford in September. The multi-million pound VHub will be the first major facility in the UK to clean clothes using state-of-the-art green technology that uses mild, biodegradable detergents and outputs waste water that’s nearly pure enough to drink.
The facility will start by serving over 200 new VDrop green-cleaning vending machines that will begin to appear over London and the South East. The first was installed at Epping station at the beginning of October and Transport for London (TfL) has plans to install them at a number of London Underground stations across the capital, including North Greenwich, Loughton, South Woodford and Woodford, with more to follow.
The “drop-and-go” style vending machines will act as a gateway to the new green-cleaning revolution, enabling office workers to simply drop-off their dirties and pick up their clean clothes in 24 hours, at a cost of just £3 per garment.
