A complete guide to home ironing services

Haven’t you ever just wished someone would come along and do all that tedious ironing for you? A lot of us tend to forget that there is a solution to this problem! Home ironing services have been around forever, but many of us have never even considered them.

But why do we persist in doing it all ourselves instead of hiring a professional? Are they too expensive? Is it beneficial? How do you choose the right one?

Luckily, we have created a complete guide to home ironing services to ensure you never need to worry about that big ironing pile again!

Benefits of using a home ironing service

Let's get straight into why using a home ironing service is beneficial! There are many great reasons to hire a professional and some of them may not seem so obvious:

Time-Saving

The most significant reason is, of course, how much time it saves you. Those huge piles of work clothes and school uniforms can end up taking hours out of your week. Using a home ironing service frees up all of those hours for you to enjoy in any way you like! Start a new hobby, do some baking, the possibilities are endless!

Stress-Free

Day-to-day life can be busy enough. Knowing that somebody else will be taking care of the ironing pile is a huge weight off your mind. Also, if you’re less mobile than others, or suffer from physical disabilities, a home ironing service can save you a lot of distress and discomfort.

Better Quality Results

Ironing services use their experience, tips and tricks to make sure your clothes are ironed properly, often with better results. They’re able to iron well and quickly and can ensure delicate materials such as silk or wool are treated with the right care. And this is true whatever the  you want to iron: for ironing jeans easily, decreasing satin clothes or even a delicate dress.

Cost-efficient

To some, it may seem a little strange to pay someone to do their ironing, but most services are extremely good value for money. Some professionals can iron 15+ items an hour! All you need to provide is the iron and ironing board. Below we will look into some of the average pricing of an ironing service.

Cost of an ironing service

Home ironing service costs are usually split into three categories:

  1. Price per hour - Many services will charge by the hour, ranging in price between £12-£18 per hour. If you decide to choose a service with this option, it’s important to check online reviews and recommendations beforehand. You’ll want to hire someone quick and efficient to ensure you’re getting the best value for money!
  2. Price per KG - Another pricing method used by ironing services is priced by weight. On average, most services charge £5.50 per KG. If you have a lot of items that may end up taking longer, this could be a more cost-effective solution to go for.
  3. Price per item - Lastly, some services will have set prices for each item of clothing. For example, shirts and blouses typically cost between £1.75-£3.00, while trousers and skirts range between £3.80-£4.00. Smaller items such as underwear or children's clothes are the cheapest costing between £0.60-£1.00 each.

How to find an ironing service near me

Ironing services are plentiful and choosing the right one can be a bit overwhelming. There are several points you should consider when researching who to hire:

  • Ratings - online reviews and ratings are vitally important. Not only do they give an overall score for the quality of the ironing but they provide extra information that you may not find elsewhere in the advert. The speed of service, level of professionalism, flexibility, manners etc. It all adds up and is important when you’re hiring somebody to come into your home.
