Pick up your dry cleaning from one of Bahlman Cleaners’ Texas locations and you may be surprised to find your garments presented on bright red hangers. For the Bahlmans, the red hanger is their own way of raising awareness of heart disease—the leading cause of death among women in the United States. In 2014, they unexpectedly lost their daughter to a rare form of heart disease. Ever since, it’s been their aim to keep other families from experiencing a similar tragedy.

As a dry cleaner, what better way to encourage heart health than a bright red hanger customers take home with them on a daily basis? February is American Heart Month—a special time for raising awareness of heart disease and its significant threat. 

To support the Bahlmans and their red hangers, we encourage you and your loved ones to get regular check ups and ensure that you’re staying heart healthy.
