The crew at Sunset Hills Cleaners ousted grime from its first garment in 1968. Today, a litany of services pampers soiled textiles. Odorless dry cleaning purifies sensitive fabrics, letting the gentle rustle and hush of textiles fill the shop as staff hand finishes and presses threads. Javier, the on-staff stain expert, draws upon 22 years of experience in unsullying clothing to extricate evidence of overzealous meals and secret alliances with the Blue Man Group from apparel. A nine-point inspection ensures each garment returns to near factory-issue form, and laundry, alterations, and other services ready even suede, leather, and silk items for rides in the company’s chartreuse delivery vans.

Beverly's Laundromat, a 3000-square-foot facility loaded with amenities, facilitates the efficient cleaning of dirty laundry by self-service or drop-off service. Fifty self-service washing machines deep-clean double or triple loads of dirty laundry, and supersize washers can freshen up to 80 pounds of clothing or soiled parachutes. If customers opt for wash, dry, and fold service, seasoned launderers double-check each garment for stains after cleaning, and they even match lone socks with their predetermined life partners.
Vending machines dispense laundry products such as detergent and fabric softener, and an Internet kiosk and onsite video games make trips to the laundromat more fun than a chore. An always-present bilingual staff responds to textile-related conundrums from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week.
