With nail salons, massage parlors, barbershops, and spas on nearly every corner, it is more important than ever for those in the beauty industry to stand out from the rest. Quality, commercial laundry equipment can provide services to help you do that! While many beauty-focused companies use home appliances or older, outdated units, commercial washers and dryers may help drive the salon to the next level and set yourself apart from your competition.
Cleanliness is Key
There’s no quicker way to send your clients to the competitor than to have your salon smell bad or be dirty. Cleanliness is super important when the salon provides manicures, pedicures, and waxing that can carry bacteria that contribute to infection, as well as protect against coronavirus. Today’s equipment is designed cleanliness and sanitation as a top priority. Dexter Laundry’s flexible wash cycles and automatic chemical injection options allow you to create the perfect combination to remove all of the hair, oils, lotions, dyes, and nail polishes – so you get the cleanest, freshest laundry every time.
Efficient & Quick
Residential and older machines are often unable to manage all the laundry that comes into your salon or spa business. Waiting around for your laundry cycles to finish means that you may get behind and not have clean towels, washcloths, linens, smocks, and aprons that your patrons expect – resulting in dissatisfied customers and less revenue. Commercial laundry equipment, like Dexter Laundry and Continental Girabu washer-extractors and dryers. For example, a Dexter stack-washer dryer is a game-changer when it comes to maximizing space. With a dry-to-dry time of about an hour, you can get your laundry done fast and get more loads done throughout the day.
Expand Your Spa and Salon
The more amenities your spa or salon has – such as massages, tanning, manicures, and pedicures – the more sheets, rags, robes, and other linens you need to clean. With more efficient washers and dryers, your business can increase capacity to a point where you can offer additional services. Could you begin offering massages? Tanning? Facials or other high-margin services? If you’ve been planning to grow your service offerings and business in the future, commercial laundry machines are a must-have.
Become Eco Friendly
Customer demand for eco-friendly services (and products!) is high and is only growing. The market loves an environmental business model, and consumers will pay more for and be more loyal to businesses that embrace an eco-friendly approach. Commercial laundry equipment will allow your salon/spa to help you create a sustainable path. In the last couple of years, laundry technology has come a long way. Faster cycle times, temperature, and water level controls ensure less water and electricity is used by the equipment than ever before. Increased energy-efficiency will help you reduce your environmental footprint (and your utility bills).
