As the year ends, it is a good time for laundry owners to assess the condition of their equipment, their space—whether it is a coin laundry or an on-premises laundry facility—and their overall operations. Make note of any changes to make in 2017, like these:
Upgrade your commercial washing machines.
Is dry time lagging, annoying your customers or residents and causing your energy bills to rise? Are you employees spending a lot of time on training due to clunky, outdated equipment? Good news for you, there are a number of new, highly efficient washers that will increase the efficiency of your business. Washers feature fast spin speeds that reduce dry time—and lower your utility costs and energy consumption. Be sure to look for deals for trading in your old commercial laundry equipment.
Give your laundry a facelift.
Have the walls become dull and dingy? Are the floors scuffed? Is décor dated? Refresh your space for 2017. Give the walls a fresh coat of paint, thoroughly clean and wax the floors, and add some fresh, current décor. Remember that no matter what type of laundry you are operating, whether it is a coin laundry location or a laundry room within an apartment complex, your customers and residents simply want a space that is clean and inviting.
Consider smart-card or credit-card operated laundry machines.
Do you own a multi-housing laundry facility that is coin-operated? Making the switch to newer technology makes it easier on you and your residents. Rather than having to get coins from the bank, users can simply use a smart card or credit card, making the transaction more convenient.
