Baywash Laundry & Dry Cleaner has been faithfully serving Darwin’s Cullen Bay community for more than two decades. It is now deeply entrenched in the harborside suburb and is the resident go-to place for laundry and dry-cleaning aficionados. The business offers a high-quality service, largely to business owners and professionals. Owners Darryl and Jose pride themselves on the quality of their work.
Baywash was opened when Cullen Bay was first developed. The business has seen many owners and has grown massively over the years. The operation began as a simple self-serve system with coin-operated machines. Today, it is a full-service laundry and dry cleaner. Customers can drop off their laundry on the way to work and pick it up on the way home. And then there’s that one part of the housework nobody ever likes doing – the ironing.
Baywash specialises in providing an expert ironing service for individuals and commercial clients. The owners are no strangers to business management. Darryl served as sales manager of Dabsco for 11 years and as estimator and director of a Queensland-based building company for 10 years. Jose managed the Noodle House on Mitchell Street for five years and handled the restaurant’s operations and business developments for nine years.
The duo took over Baywash in July 2017 after helping the previous owner during her time off and rush times until her retirement. They realised even in those early days that there was room to expand the scope of the business. Customers constantly asked about dry cleaning, a service the business didn’t provide. Darryl and Jose knew that investment in the latest dry-cleaning technology was the key to success.
A dry-cleaning service was added – and was immediately immensely popular. Baywash has now added another service: Soft Wash. Darryl and Jose are well aware of the world’s environmental crisis.SoftWash is a wet-cleaning process suitable for even delicate fabrics. The advantage over dry cleaning is the technique’s absence of perchloroethylene, a high-strength, strong-smelling cleaning chemical that damages the environment.
The chemical is often a soil contaminant and is toxic at even low levels in the water. Darryl and Jose see Baywash’s emphasis on “soft washing” as a welcome step for a small business and is part of their “cleaner, greener” method. Baywash offers cleaning services for a wide range of clothing and fabrics, and is dedicated, more than usual, to assuring high-quality service.
