Lapels Dry Cleaning of Katy helps Harvey victims get off to a clean start


September 18, 2017

The aftermath of Hurricane Harvey has left many lingering impacts. Returning to flooded homes or apartments, many victims who had to evacuate found clothing soaked and soiled. Lapels Dry Cleaning of Katy, located 5102 FM 1463, Katy, has been helping impacted families by providing up to $40 in free dry cleaning and 25 percent off the order beyond the first $40. They will continue to offer this for the entire month of September.

In addition to this discount, Lapels Dry Cleaning of Katy is not charging to process wet clothes to prepare items for dry cleaning. This service typically adds as much as 30 percent to the dry cleaning bill when clothes are brought in wet.

"We were very fortunate in our part of Katy not to suffer anywhere near the damage that many of our fellow Texans did. This offer is the least we can do to help out our fellow Texans and we hope it helps in some small way in getting things a little back to normal," said Komal Patel, owner of Lapels Dry Cleaning of Katy and Lapels Dry Cleaning of Richmond, located at 9107 FM 723 Road. Both locations are offering this discount for the month of September.

Lapels Dry Cleaning of Katy has also extended a special offer to teachers at Seven Lakes Junior High School, whose houses got flooded due to Hurricane Harvey. Patel's oldest daughter attends the school.
