Complementary to the washing and cleaning of your items, Maxima acts as a nourishing care and restores brightness, beauty and softness to the most fragile items of your wardrobe.
What is a waterproofing treatment?
Baechler uses customized technology and high quality products to restore the initial waterproofing coefficient level of your clothes, thereby guaranteeing a lasting result against snow and light rain.
As well as cleaning, this treatment leaves a thin waterproofing layer, which prevents future stains, protects wool fibres from felting and limits water rings.
What is a finishing treatment?
Our finishing treatment makes the freshly ironed effect last longer, so that your suits and evening dresses stay soft, neat and wrinkle-free no matter what.
The finishing comes in the form of a thin layer applied to your garment in order to improve its shape, but that is not all. It revives the colors of your items while preventing stains from becoming embedded.
Can I also have curtains, carpets or other items washed?
Of course. We clean items such as curtains and carpets. If you would like an offer for this service, just drop off the item via the laundry chute as usual with a note on the deposit form that you are requesting a price quotation.
How do I place an order?
Once you have received your starter kit, you can start using the laundry service. All you need to do is drop off your personal garment bag in the laundry chute in the WHO Main Building, room SS218. Do not forget to place your personal Baechler services card in the outside pocket as well as the deposit form. This ensures that your items can be tracked.
