Germ Defense Maryland is a division of Allegany Management Services, Inc. was founded by Michael and Kimberly McKay. The McKay's are small business owners who have owned several professional cleaning and textile restoration companies with locations in Maryland, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Currently, they operate two drycleaners in Allegany County trading as The Dryclean and Shirt Salon.

Many customers have been concerned with germs, bacteria, odors over the years. When Mike and Kim learned they could bring medical grade, EPA approved, disinfection and germ deterrent services they went back into action to bring you Germ Defense Maryland. Providing excellent customer service and quality products has been our focus since our first business started back in 1997 and we continue that dedication to our clients with Germ Defense Maryland, providing a healthier environment for work, home, school, and play!
