iRS Cleaners

In 1855, after his maid accidentally overturned a kerosene lamp on his tablecloth, French dye-works owner, Jean Baptiste Jolly noticed that the tablecloth became cleaner. So, like many inventions, dry cleaning came about by accident and Jolly began to offer this new service, operating through his dye-works company, calling it “dry cleaning.”
These days, you don’t have to have your clothes cleaned in kerosene or gasoline to get them fresh and clean. Just visit iRS Cleaners, using safe earth-friendly and allergen free products, it’s your one stop shop for all your dry-cleaning needs. Wanting to own their own piece of the American Dream, owner’s Joe and Kathy Grosser felt a dry-cleaning business was the perfect opportunity to provide a service they had used in the past. Since 2002, they have been providing quality dry cleaning services to east county residents.
Joe and Kathy tell us the best part of owning their business is, “Number one is when we see our customer’s smiling faces, especially when we identify them by first name and usually know what their needs will be for that visit and we have accomplished out mission to meet their cleaning needs to their satisfaction!” Kathy adds that customers/families that have busy schedules, we offer Free Weekly Scheduled pick-up and delivery service in the Brentwood and Discovery Bay areas, which many of our customers love. It frees them to spend more time doing the things that are more important and saves them valuable time and money.
Kathy loves working alongside a great all female staff. iRS Cleaners keeps their cleaning “in house,” whereas other cleaners may contract out their services to big warehouses out of the area. And they go the extra mile to ensure they meet customer’s needs. Whether it is extending their same day service times beyond the normal for that emergency, earlier pick up time for the occasion that arises at the last minute or exhausting every possible means to remove all spots.
They also consult regularly with colleagues in the cleaning business and keeping up with the industry changes and textiles to make sure customer’s clothes are the best that they can be.
Some of the great features you’ll find when using iRS Cleaners are, free home pick-up and delivery, alterations of all kinds, suede and leather cleaning, free same day services on all dry cleaning and laundry in by 12 o’clock Monday through Friday, with all work being done on premises.
Looking toward the future, iRS Cleaners hopes to expand their business to other locations in the area, as the economy permits. And, having been voted the Best of Brentwood many times, they are humble and grateful. They look forward to see what 2019 has in store for them!
In addition to running their business, Joe and Kathy enjoy being involved in the community. In the past, they have donated to local youth organizations, Community Chests and cleaned our high school mascot’s costumes and provided cleaning for the Brentwood Ballet Company. Having the highest respect for the military, they also have provided free cleaning and repairs to our military families that are currently serving our great country or those who have lost a loved one. Kathy also works alongside with Holy Rosary Church pressing at no cost, the flags for our fallen loved ones.

So happy to find a cleaners who understands a military press! They already knew the creases and collar style that I am asking for.

Great turn around, I can have my clothes as early as next day. – D. Hildago, Brentwood
