Eco-Friendly Dry Cleaning And Laundry Services For Your Yacht

Leave a comment

Having laundry facilities on board your yacht or having access to a laundromat right at your marina can be very handy, but the problem is that water from washing machines, as well as sinks and showers, known as graywater, dispenses undesirable nutrients and Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) substances into nearby water. To cut down on wastewater, arranging for a shore-based laundry is an environmentally sound idea. This is why Ship Shape Cleaners, aneco-friendly laundry and dry cleaningcompany that services area marinas, often picks up laundry and movable items and performs its services at our own facilities.

Laundry Challenges Solved For Yacht Owners

With numerous marinas dotting the coasts of Florida, disposing of wastewater and graywater has been a major engineering challenge. When you do washing on board your vessel or at marina facilities, the wastewater usually goes into receptacles that must be pumped out and disposed of elsewhere or in a nearby city’s sanitary sewer system. Many marinas prohibit residents from discharging their wastewater into the bay, lake, or ocean, while on-site laundromats and even marina hookup fees are costly.

Living full or part-time aboard a yacht poses an abundance of laundry challenges. Aside from the normal usage of your family, you may have an ongoing stream of guests who use plenty of towels and linens. As many yacht owners will attest, the company keeps coming, especially around holidays and for Florida dwellers, during the winter when snowbirds from the north flock to warmer climates. Dealing with all the laundry can be a costly hassle.
