Spin Cycle Laundry Service launches June 1

MANNINGTON — Spin Cycle’s mission is to help the community by providing a quality, affordable service.

This locally owned laundry service will officially launch on June 1. The new business, owned by lifelong Mannington resident Diana Sypolt, will serve all of Marion County.

After working as a home health aide and taking care of her own parents, Sypolt started thinking about elderly and disabled persons who aren’t physically able to do their own laundry.

Also, she thought of her friends in the oil and gas industry who are stationed in the area but live out of town and just don’t have the time to take care of their laundry.

Sypolt, who has been doing laundry for a while for her friends, felt that Mannington also needed a pickup and delivery laundry service to help moms, coal miners and other hard-working people.

Spin Cycle will travel to a customer’s home, assisted living facility or business to get their laundry, and is even willing to meet people at a location convenient for them. Sypolt’s fiance, Jake Lee, is helping with picking up the loads.

The bundles are then taken to a Laundromat, where Sypolt washes and dries the items and also fluffs and folds. The main sites that Spin Cycle uses are Mannington Laundry and Washland in Fairmont, depending on where the client lives.

After completing the laundry service, Spin Cycle delivers the finished product back to the customer. The business can provide weekly or monthly fee quotes for regular customers.

There’s “no job too big or small,” Sypolt said. She can take care of baby clothes, work attire, uniforms, fine delicates, table linens, bedding and more, all with a turnaround time of 24 hours and for a reasonable price.

Spin Cycle invites coal miners, pipeliners and drillers to let them handle the dirt left on their clothing from working.

Sypolt commented that she’s very picky and washes clients’ clothes like she would wash her own. She wants be proud of all the work she does and focuses on quality.

She said many people out there don’t have anyone to help them, and Spin Cycle wants to fill that gap.

Lee said the business will work to accommodate anyone’s needs or wants and talks with each client about possible allergies. The business will make special arrangements to help handicapped or senior clients, such as providing assistance in changing draperies or bedding.

Doing laundry at a customer’s home or ironing could even be considered on occasion. The goal is to allow people who really need this laundry service to be able to take advantage of it, he said.

“We’re out to make a difference in the community,” Lee said.

He added that Sypolt is quite good at removing stains from fabrics and can handle a “last-minute oops,” like a stained tablecloth that is needed in time for a special occasion.

Lee said Spin Cycle doesn’t currently offer dry cleaning, but is looking to add this service once it gets established.

A lot of people are ready and waiting for Spin Cycle to open on June 1, Sypolt said.

“We’ve got clients lined up,” she said.
