There is no substitute for the appearance and feel that only a crisply ironed tabletop, napkin, pillowcase, or sheet can provide. Ironed linen conveys a message of quality and cleanliness: that an establishment is “first class” all the way. This is especially true where linen is exposed to constant usage and washings which quickly take a toll on its appearance. “Tumble dried only” linen often gives the impression that it has already been used by a previous guest and may not be as clean as it should be. Chicago equipment puts the final touches on freshly laundered products for well presented ironed and folded packages. The last step in the commercial laundry process is also the first thing your customer sees.

Chicago specializes in designing and building systems to separate, feed, dry, iron/finish, and fold washed sheets, pillowcases, and table linen, as well as tumble dried towels, blankets, patient gowns, scrubs, and specialty or luxury items. As you will see, technical expertise, product innovation, quality, local support, and tradition are powerful reasons to choose Chicago as your single source for flatwork finishing innovation and solutions.

KEY THINGS TO LOOK FOR WHEN PURCHASING COMMERCIAL LAUNDRY EQUIPMENT

Choosing the right commercial laundry equipment can be overwhelming. Not only are you looking through different brands, but the washers and dryers all have different capacities, features, and specifications to consider. On top of all that, you’re dealing with the normal day-to-day businesses tasks and the plethora of other to-do’s that come with starting or running a business. The laundry experts at HM Laundry are here to help. To help you focus and narrow things down, we’ve put together some of the key things to look for when purchasing commercial laundry equipment.

Cost & Financing

Of course, cost is always a main consideration for any business purchase. Commercial laundry equipment is no different. You’ll want to plan and budget for this investment appropriately and consider how the purchase plays into your long term business plan.

Start by doing your research and planning out a realistic budget. Then, be sure and stick to your budget when you actually make the equipment purchase. Many commercial laundry distributors, like Martin-Ray Laundry Systems, offer flexible financing options tailored to laundry investors to help with this process.

Don’t forget to check out the equipment warranties as well. As an experienced distributor, we can help you understand the warranty on your equipment, which will save you tons of hassle and money in the long run.

Size & Capacity

What size and capacity commercial laundry equipment you’ll want to purchase varies upon your industry and your facility. Some industries, like and medical facilities, may want large capacity equipment that can handle a heavy volume of sheets and linens. Others, like a fitness center or salon, may benefit from smaller machines that allow them to do smaller loads of towels on a more continuous basis.

The space of your facility may also impact what machines you should buy. There’s no benefit to buying a large capacity machine if it will take up more space than you can afford to lose. If you’re unsure or building a new facility, a distributor can help design a functional laundry space for you, your staff, and your customers. Keep in mind, you should also consider future growth, expansion, and remodeling plans. Would the equipment work in the redesigned space or as your business grows?

Eco-Friendly Features

It’s common knowledge that utility costs are one of the leading concerns facing laundry equipment investors. The more you can reduce your water and electricity costs, the more profitable and successful your business will be, whether it’s a laundromat or on-premise or multi-housing laundry room.

With all that in mind, looking for eco-friendly machines that’ll cut down on water and electricity use is in your best interest. It’s especially important to consider if your machines are 5+ years old, as design and equipment technology improvements are happening quickly.

Controls/Technology

As noted above, technology is changing quickly in the laundry industry, so it’s important to consider your options when buying new equipment.

Advanced controls and technology can help you save money and improve efficiency at your laundry operation. When picking machines, consider problem areas and hiccups you’ve run into in the past at your business, such as long wait times, controls that were difficult to use, or a tedious process for tracking revenue and machine maintenance. You want to purchase equipment that can help you solve these and other common laundry issues from the get-go to make life easier for you and your customers.

Another thing to consider is using easy controls. No one wants to use complicated, clunky controls. They should be self-explanatory and easy to pick up on. This is especially important to reduce training and onboarding time if you’re in an OPL or multi-housing facility where employee turnover is high. Also, don’t forget to dive into what your customers want. It’s no secret that it’s all about convenience these days. Take a look at various card payment system options, apps, and other technology that coincides with your machines to make the laundry process smoother and more efficient.
