The furniture in your outdoor living spaces takes a beating all summer long. Why struggle with spot cleaning or buying new cushions when we can get them Hagopian Clean!

We thoroughly clean and sanitize your cushions, pillows, umbrellas and rugs. After, we apply UV-inhibiting Scotchgard® to protect them from future wear-and-tear. Then we wrap and store your items for FREE during the winter.

Bring your items in by November 15th and they’ll be ready Spring 2020!
Pick-Up & Delivery Service is available for your convenience.*




Joe Appleby may have invented it, I'm not sure.

I remember Tom King talking about it a few years ago, I'd like to do it once my place is a little more finished/cleaned up

To save on storage space, and since they're not charging for storage...why aren't they just offering to put the cushions and pillows in the wrapping and putting it in their Customer's Garage or Shed? Maybe they are putting a storage fee in that cost, but it just seems like a pain in the ass

Many "Real" shops will have rafters and unused storage areas.
They will also have have unused employees in the winter, such as Hagopian who has to put a lot of their on-location staff on unemployment.
If this program works like it does for Applebys, they'll have literally mountains of cushions that can be cleaned, protected and wrapped at any point in the winter the keep a employee or two busy and I'm payroll for that many more days.

I've been to Applebee's shop in the winter and was shocked at how stuffed his rafters were. About 35k stuffed if I recall correctly

A good market to tap if you have the space is the restaurants with outdoor patios.

Make sure your insurance will fully cover this stuff should something bad happen (fire?)
