Well Regarded Community Based Black-Owned Laundromat Expands To Offer COVID-19 Clean Up Services
Reach Metro Laundry Delivery Service at: 516-234-9187

While COVID-19 infections and deaths in NYC are in sharp decline, the sharp incline in cases nationally, who have eased restrictions on lifestyle issues like masks, gloves, and good cleaning procedures illustrates the point -- we should continue to be careful and vigilant fighting the Coronavirus. A local Black-owned laundry service Metro Laundry Service, is looking to clean up the Coronavirus spread in Southeast Queens.

New York City, was the most adversely impacted area by COVID-19. Also Queens was once the most adversely impacted area in New York City.  The Metro Laundry Service, located at 196-16 Linden Blvd, in Jamaica, Queens, 11412 (Call: 516-234-9187), is stepping into the mix to offer pickup laundry cleaning services to keep residents safe practicing social distancing by customers not having to take trips to the laundry in person.

Metro Laundry Service was founded by Maxine Howell, and has been in existence since October of 2011. Starting her business in 2011 made sense because all nine of her children were no longer depending on her raising them. The thought of going back to work as nursing assistant was not something she looked forward to so she decided to add a valuable service to our community.

With the spread of COVID-19 she is working harder to stop the spread by providing a high quality environmentally friendly laundry service where people in our community don't have to defy social distancing guidelines when visiting a laundromat and therefore avoid the risks associated with large numbers of people in closely contained spaces in NYC.

Maxine Howell, was born in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica, West Indies. She credits learning to clean, sew, and cook to her birth place. There aren't a lot of Black owned Laundromats in New York City.

Maxine had a rough start, because she had no loans. However, despite her husband helping her, she could only afford reconditioned washers and dryers. Some just worked for six months before several washers and dryers started to give her problems.

Due to unseen expenses she spent less time with her family and slept at the laundromat after long days for the first five years. Her business is now emerging as the go to Black-owned laundry in Queens. She is still exploring ways to grow and expand.

Ms. Howell is in the process of taking out a loan for new dryers and washers. She is also jump-starting a COVID-19 pick/drop of service that will keep local residents in NYC more protected from the Coronavirus. She looks to contribute to slowing the spread of the virus and in the process help humanity. She hopes one of her children takes over the business one day.
Other exclusive services Metro Laundry Service offers are:
  • Door to door same day pick and drop-off
  • Fresh bags 
  • Same day return (round the clock service)
  • Free Health/Fitness/entrepreneur meetups 
  • Customer appreciation day and more

Metro Laundry Delivery Service is open for business 7 am - 6:30 pm Monday through Sunday.
