At Lavi Cleaners, we use the utmost care in processing articles entrusted to us. Through our experience and knowledge, we use processes, which we feel are best suited to the nature and condition of each individual article. However, damages may inevitably occur.
Nevertheless, we cannot assume responsibility for inherent weaknesses or defects in materials that are not readily apparent prior to processing. This applies particularly, but not exclusively, to suedes, leathers, silks, satins, double-faced fabrics, vinyls, polyurethanes, lace, etc. Responsibility also is disclaimed for trimmings, buckles, beads, buttons, bells and sequins.
Likewise, although our cleaning facilities have trained employees to examine each garment precisly for private property and valuables left inside of garments, Lavi Cleaners is not responsible for any of such missing items. According to New York State law, we cannot hold unclaimed garments for more than 3 months. Beyond this period, unclaimed garments will be donated to charity accordingly.
Lavi Cleaners is not liable for reimbursing new items purchased by the customer to replace lost or damaged items. Our liability with respect to any lost or damaged item shall not exceed more than ten times our charge for cleaning the item, regardless of brand or condition.

Lavi Cleaners does all laundry in state-of-the-art commercial-grade washing machines and therefore does not take "Hand washing" instructions. Lavi Cleaners denies any responsibility if the garments are damaged in the process, given the unique and potentially delicate nature of such garments.
We do not guarantee any specific turn around time. We often have same day return for morning pickups and next day return for afternoon/evening pickups, but this is never guaranteed as logistic and cleaning situations may arise.
By purchasing our services, the customer agrees they are at risk at all times for the loss or damage of their personal property. Therefore, the customer agrees any claims and reimbursements must be made in accordance to Lavi Cleaners policies.
