Consequences of laundry equipment downtime

How we wish we could have a working crystal ball to know when machinery may break down. Without the luxury of knowing in advance, all we can do is establish preventive maintenace. That is if we don’t want to suffer the consequences of laundry equipment downtime.

Equipment downtime happens when machines are not properly working, and it can be very bad for business. How can you provide linen and towels to your guests if your washers or dryers are down? Just one machine not working can mess up your workflow.

If you don’t have a service agreement in place, you’ll find yourselve with the unexpected cost of repairs. Maybe even an emergency fee depending on the situation.

The best thing you can do to prepare your business is accept that sooner or later, equipment will break down. Once you accept it you’ll be able to change your mind set form “fix when it’s broken” to “prevent it from breaking”.
