“I use admiral for the home delivery
program and it’s amazing!!!! So efficient and consistent. They text the night
before to confirm and I just leave it at the front door. Billing is streamlined
and accurate. I never have to drag my clothes into my car, drive to the
cleaners, park, deal with waiting in line and then emptying my bag on the
counter and standing there watching my stuff get sorted and then dealing with
an employee answering the phone, etc…. My time is what I value the most in my
life and Admiral has figured out how to make one thing (dry cleaning) so much
simpler! I wish all my service providers were this client focused!!!!!!”
“Admiral is the absolute best. I’ve been using them for years. So convenient, exceptional work, great customer service and super fair pricing. Highly recommend!!!”
In the Beginning
The year was 1932 when Grandpa opened his dry cleaning business in the heart of Silver Spring, MD. As was customary for those times, Grandpa began the Admiral legacy by picking up and delivering orders directly from the homes of his customers.
In 1972, our corporate headquarters moved to Taylor Avenue in Annapolis and is there to this day. Although our legacy is rooted in family tradition, that never stopped us from discovering new innovations to improve the experiences of our clients and to make dry cleaning more convenient.
After over 90 years of providing convenience and superior drycleaning quality and client service, we at Admiral Cleaners are still pursuing the best for our clients. Today, we follow that tradition by using the latest technologies and innovations available.
