5 Accessories to Improve Your Laundry Room
There's a lot going on to create a profitable laundry room in addition to washers and dryers. The accessories of your facility are just as critical as your equipment and payment systems. They are critical when it comes to maintaining efficient service and providing a pleasant experience for the customers and employees. If you're new to the industry or are expanding your business, knowing what accessories you need for your vended laundry room, multi-housing or on-premise laundry room can be a challenge. We're here to help take the laundry room from good to awesome with some basic accessories to maximize efficiency and delight customers and staff.
Folding Tables, Chairs and Benches
Folding tables offer a clean, easy-to-use area for people, making them a must-have accessory in virtually every laundry room. When customers or staff are folding clothes, a proper folding table avoids back, hip, and shoulder problems by eliminating bending. A dedicated folding area will also help increase the productivity of your laundry room. Many folding tables are also available with built-in shelves, trash cans, and shelving for added versatility and convenience. Fiberglass Chairs and benches are a safe choice since it is easy to clean and resistant to stains and damage from cleaners, soaps, and detergents
Garment racks come in a number of sizes, making them useful to almost every laundry facility. They're great for laundromat customers and tenants using community laundry rooms in apartments, condos, and colleges who want to avoid wrinkling clothes while waiting for other loads to dry. Hotels, hospitals, fire departments, and other on-premise laundries may also require them to hang uniforms and to transport clothing easily to different rooms. Garment racks are also convenient if your business has a lot of "hang to dry" fabrics.
Many industrial and commercial laundry facilities will benefit from having a scale. They can be used to measure the productivity of employees or to determine the cost of services (if your company charges by weight). Scales are particularly useful for laundromats providing wash and fold services, hotels, hospitals, and long-term care communities.
Poly Box Laundry Carts
Poly box trucks and laundry carts are needed when trying to handle large amounts of laundry at once. They are particularly useful for health care, hotels, resorts, motels, salons, spas, and fitness facilities, which have a large amount of bedding, towels, and other linens to be sorted and washed on a regular basis.
If you own a coin laundry or manage a multi-housing community, soap dispensers are a sound investment. Convenience is key for the customers, and they are an opportunity for you to make additional revenue.
