Upgrading laundry equipment: Why now?

Commercial laundry equipment doesn’t last forever. If your equipment is getting older, you’ll notice you’ll be spending more and more on repairs. This is because old machines breaks more frequently. Expensive service calls and disruptions in service. Leaving a less than stellar impression and experience for your customers. A lot of factors come into play when making a decision like this. If you’re thinking of upgrading laundry equipment for your operation, here are a few reasons why you should consider it now:


Laundry operations have evolved and you should too. Customers are looking for the best equipment available. If you can’t offer it, they will look somewhere else.


Machines that are used more than average won’t last as long. Pay attention to your equipment. If it’s getting old and tired, you should replace it.

Poor maintenance

This is probably the biggest reason why equipment goes out of service. If you don’t have a maintenance plan in place, your machines will resent it. Proper maintenance is very important for your operation to run smoothly.

Energy efficiency

Are you utility bills going up? Newer equipment is way more efficient. Upgrading laundry equipment will save you money in the long run by lowering your water and electricity expenses.
