Dry cleaning and laundry

We list the applications for a new dry cleaning and laundry license.

Before you begin, look at our instructions on how to apply for a business license.

License applications

Dry Cleaner: Cleaning and dying of clothing with chemicals other than water. 

Laundry : A place to wash or clean clothing.  This includes self-service laundries, launderettes, and laundromats.  If a business provides both laundry and dry cleaning, you only need a Dry Cleaning license. 


Pick Up Station: A business that accepts clothing to launder, dry clean, dye or iron for a fee. Pick up stations do not need a license.
