Horsey Clean has been providing horse blanket and apparel cleaning, repair and water treatment services since 2008 for Greenhawk Harness and Equestrian Supply and in general since 2004. As the exclusive service provider to Greenhawk Harness and Equestrian, we take great pride in our complete process. Our unique formula, ACF1, coupled together with our exclusive process is how we are able to complete more blankets annually than any other service provider in North America.
Horsey Clean services 16 Greenhawk Harness and Equestrian locations weekly in Ontario from Ottawa to Essex! Our family built company has thrived by providing outstanding customer care, after care and in keeping records on your gear when it comes in so we can reference it, in the future, if need be .
Horsey Clean invites you to enjoy our services as thousands do each and every year. We commit to give all your items the care and control you have come to expect if you are an existing customer and if you are not, then that which you will begin to enjoy!
Horsey Clean provides weekly turn around on blanket cleaning service. However, variable factors come into play, be it inclement weather or extensive repairs on cleaned blankets, that may cause them to be held back a week or two. When this is the case we contact you directly.
All blankets are washed and processed in cold water and dried via our custom HRV cyclic air venting and humidistat drying system (naturally!).
We do not use hot water or heat during our processes, resulting in keeping the integrity of the blanket all throughout the process.
Horsey Clean can tackle almost any repair. We do not, however, provide zipper replacemen.
All blankets that are repaired must be cleaned prior to repairs being completed as part of our internal Health and Safety Policy. We are always happy to repair your blankets if you wish to clean your own and send them in for repairs to us. With that said, we do ask you to keep in mind, that if blankets arrive at our facility and show signs of not having been cleaned, in keeping with our own Health and Safety Policy for our staff, the blanket will be cleaned and invoiced accordingly.
Most repairs are returned the following week with your cleaned blankets. If not, we will notify you and explain why we have to hold it back.
Blanket Water Treatments
This is an important aspect of our service and ask you read this section.
Water treatments, or repellents, are just that; treatments. Regardless of the previous treatments on a blanket, once washed, it wears it down and needs to be treated again. Remember, as the fibers in the fabric are stretched it becomes more porous, therefore, allowing moisture and water to get in. With that in mind, remember, water treatments do not mean waterproof.
Although it acts as a proactive means in keeping your horse dry, please be sure to request the treatments when sending blankets in you want to keep as water tight as possible.
At Horsey Clean we strive to meet your demands. Please read below through some of our Repair and Additional Services that are available to you.
Horsey Clean uses ACF1. In clinical studies the formula ACF1 has proven to be eco-safe, hypo allergenic and phosphate free. After cleaning thousands of blankets there has never been one reported adverse reaction to the formula on animal or human alike.
If you over 20 blankets we suggest a pick up from your location. Simply contact your local Greenhawk to arrange it. They will supply you with the inventory forms needed to complete the process. Alternatively, you can always call us directly and we will be happy to liaise with you to make all the arrangements and provide you with the forms you need. (You can also download it here right now!)
Once the order is processed and the date and pick up time arranged, we ask that all the blankets be fully labelled with a tag showing the owners' name and how many bags there are. i.e. 1 of 2, 2 of 2 etc. Once you are invoiced for the order you can pay Horsey Clean directly via EMT (Electronic Money Transfer) or attend your local Greenhawk to pay the order in advance of the return date. This is mandatory that all stable and barn invoices be paid in advance of drop off.
If you have any other equipment or apparel requiring processing just ask the staff at Greenhawk if it can be cleaned. We don't clean all products (due to warranty and insurance parameters), but we will try!
When your blankets are returned to the Greenhawk where you dropped off they are vacuum sealed to ensure they stay clean and compact. Be sure to store them in a safe place to prevent tearing or puncturing of the bags(s).
