I had heard mixed reviews about Fairford Laundries but had never had the opportunity to try them out. Fairford Laundries is very popular as they cater to the needs of both students and Dr’s on campus. I had made a mental note to try them out someday but never got around to doing so until now.
In this busy month of November, I had an association dinner and my dress arrived late from the designer (review out soon). It was a white dress which was already dirty due to so many fittings. I had asked my friends for places where I could get express dry cleaning services and everyone directed me to Fairford so I finally decided to check them out.
Fairford is located inside the famous CMUL shopping plaza and it’s quite easy to find. I was aware of the per kg deal they ran which cost about 1,200 Naira for 8kg. They also offer pickup as well as delivery services.
I was attended to by a very composed young guy. He was very attentive (I think he was hitting on me sef). He explained it normally takes about 4-9 days to dry clean clothes, however, I explained my predicament and miraculously, he collected my gown and asked me to pick it up the next day at 4pm.
Dry cleaning my gown cost 500 Naira, which is very affordable considering the short notice. I was asked to pay some money upfront but I just decided to pay the full cost after which I was given a receipt which I had to use to claim my item. Payment is either via cash or POS but i opted for cash.
The next day, I arrived at the stipulated time and my dress was beautifully dry cleaned and ready for collection. I was really impressed and I was glad they didn’t flop.
Based on my experience with Fairford, I rate them a 10/10 because the service and my dress were perfect!
