Dorm Mom Helps Hurricane Ike's Relief Effort

Dorm Mom has been contracted to help with hurricane Ike relief effort around the Galveston and Houston areas in Texas.

Dorm Mom will be providing its signature laundry services to relief workers that are helping the victims of hurricane Ike in the wake of the devastation that wrecked havoc on the gulf coast. As relief workers are working hard to get the cities back to life and people back to their homes, Dorm Mom will be doing their laundry and helping with clean-up efforts.

Doing Laundry in the Dormitory

When I started college, I never gave much thought to how I would do my laundry as my mom did them all the time. Doing laundry does not look too complicated but doing it right is not easy. There was a laundry room couple doors down the hall in McNair hall. It had 1 washer and a dryer but there were over 60 students on the floor. The ground floor or basement had about 15 washers and dryers. That's not bad at all but there are over 256 students in the building. To do my laundry, I have to wait for when a washer is available.

It takes about 45 minutes for the wash to complete. I had to make sure I was back on time or somone looking to wash could dump my stuff out getting it all dirty again. Seperating the colors was a hassel and the wait was exhausting. I usually take a book to read while waiting - an excellent way to pass time. If I am lucky, there maybe a dryer available as soon as I am done. If none is available, I have to wait and listen for the next completion beep. The most annoying thing about the laundry rooms in the dorms is students who leave their stuff in the washer and/or dryer and slow everyone else down. A good tip is to leave your basket by the washer or dryer if you don't want your cloths in the dumpster. Drying takes longer...about 30 more than washing. If you let your cloths sit in the dryer for more than 30 mins after it stops, you make be walking around in a tide of wrinkles. Best practice is fold or hang your cloths as soon as the dryer beep goes off. That would save you a lot of ironing time. I hate folding my cloths. It takes a lot of time and needs to be done right.

If dorm mom was at my college, I would have definately used them. Apart from the time savings, you won't be ruining your cloths or getting scared of it been stolen from the dorm laundry room.

Laundry service for all College Students

Why would I want a laundry service, apartment cleaning or grocery delivery while in college? Does it signify laziness, inability to take on responsibility, elitism, or just another outsourced labor. Doing your laundry yourself does not make you a better person, it does not make you more resposible than those who outsource that labor.

There is uneducated reasoning that most people believe: having Dorm Mom do your laundry makes you irresposible. That is very ignorant because the fact that I eat out does not make me a bad cook. There is nothing different between paying someone to bring you food and paying someone to do your laundry. Doing laundry is not a skill needed to be successful in life. Having Dorm Mom do your laundry will actually help you do better than others that spend hours in the laundry room weekly. Time spent outside the laundry room can be chanelled into more productive ventures.

MAN IN COMMUNITY, “I NEED DORM MOM”

Who have said one time or another that they are grown or too grown-up to get help with things such as chores? We all may be guilty of such previous statement or thinking. It is probably certain that you are smiling upon reading this statement and saying I said that ten minutes ago.

The reality of the matter is that we all relish the good old days when we did not have to buy groceries, clean our rooms, do laundry, pay bills, buy gas, etc. Why? Mom did them for all, because we were her little angel(s). Some of us were so blessed that we did not even have to clean our tables after eating much less taking our own bath at latter stages of our live.

You missed those days right? “Yes”, at least that is how most people profoundly respond. Clear-cut, Mom is always mom but those good ole days diminish quickly, as her little angle becomes a big angel. That is one reason we claim were grown or mom tells us we are.

Now you have the opportunity to reclaim those good old days. There is Mom out there that will do everything “Your” mother use to do. Ok, almost everything, some exceptions being bathing or breast feeding you. This mom is called Dorm Mom. Dorm Mom will clean your living space-rooms, apartment, home and do your laundry. It gets better. Besides laundry service and apartment cleaning, Dorm Mom offers dry cleaning service, water delivery, and end of the semester shipping and storage.

Your mother stop doing your chores because you became a big angle and she felt you were able to do them yourself. Besides, she had better things to do instead of your chores. Now you have better things to worry about instead of doing chores. Dorm Mom will free up time, so you can concentrate on the most important aspect of your days.

Many people have realized the importance of having extra time on their hand hands to do other things. Besides, who does not want more time? Time is priceless, that is why some wish there were 48 hours to a day. This became apparent when one man in the community called and adamantly said, “ I need Dorm Mom “. Now that is a mommy’s boy, but we all are. His voice echoed the growing concern of many people-more things to with less time.

Do you need or want Dorm Mom? If your answer to this question is “yes”, Dorm Mom will accommodate you. If your answer is “no”, Dorm Mom will still accommodate you. You can reach Dorm Mom great customer personnel 7 days a week 24 hours a day.

Despite the positive responses, Dorm Mom continued to work hard on improving its good customer service. Some of the key things students enjoyed is the fact that Dorm Mom is very flexible. They could call anytime and have their schedule(s) synchronize with Dorm Mom's. Most importantly they almost always talk to a customer service representative and their questions are answered with hast.
