Important laundry planning considerations for your business

March 27, 2020
It is an incredible feeling, seeing the foundations of your new health care business being laid down before your very eyes. You worked tirelessly with an architect or a planner to design your new day spa, massage parlour, veterinary clinic or motel to achieve the best layout for your business and now its all coming together. The rooms your customers are in are an adequate size, the reception area is a nice open area with enough room to move around, but then you walk into the laundry for the first time and you realise its a bit cramped. Of course, laundry areas by nature do not have to take up a lot of room, but there are still important considerations to make the most of your laundry area. Which machine works best in the space that is available? Front loaders will allow you more space for bench and can be tucked underneath to further save space. If your laundry is also storing a lot of chemicals used in day to day business then bench space is likely a lot more a necessity and as such a front loader would be the best option. On the other hand, a top loader means no need for bending up and down making them much more ergonomically viable. The downside is you will require the space above them for opening and closing the lid. Now lets say space is really narrow, a combined washer dryer becomes the best option for saving space on the sides, freeing up space for benches or a cupboard. 2. Know your preferences Most people often have a preference for machine type when it comes to their laundry. Front loaders are generally better for energy and water savings whereas top loaders are better on the wallet. Of course if your business does frequent heavy loads each day you should ensure that you get a commercial machine over a domestic to make sure it can keep up with the requirements and save hours of service calls each year. There are other differences between the two but the important takeaway from this point is; Whatever your preference, consider that in the laundry planning and ensure the space is available for it. 3. Electricity or Gas? This is one of the important questions you need to ask yourself when planning a laundry design. If gas is available for the premises, do you want it? If so, does the laundry have sufficient ventilation for the exhaust because if not then you will have to go with an electric dryer. Australian standards require gas laundry appliances to have appropriate space with access to the outside for the exhaust to escape. Ventilation is equally important if you happen to store a lot of chemicals in your laundry area. 4. What do the access points look like? Getting in and out of the laundry is one thing, an easy task for most. It becomes increasingly difficult if your machines need a service, when that’s the case you

5 Reasons a Domestic Washing Machine is Hurting Your Business

January 21, 2020
Having the best laundry equipment for your business is a must, especially if you are doing several loads every day like you would in a veterinary practice washing animal fur out of towels or a salon where towels are used to soak up oils and lotions. Chances are that in your laundry exists a domestic washing machine from a nearby retailer that promises high washing loads and a superior clean every time. If you run either one of these businesses or plan to start one up I have no doubt you already understand that frequent and heavier washing loads are a given. Here are 5 reasons why a residential machine just will not cut it and will actually hurt your business. 1. The lack of energy and water savings This is the biggest driving factor for any business. Each day when there is one load coming out and then another load going straight in for a good part of the day it tends to rack up the water and energy costs. Even the best rated machines for the domestic market still use upwards of 63 litres of water every wash. Of course if you haven’t done your research then this number might not mean much to you, but for you savvy owners it is easier to understand that these numbers can tally up. If you are using a commercial machine for your laundry needs then you could be saving roughly 12-20 extra litres every wash. That’s a water saving of nearly 16 thousand litres every year! We should also mention, that 52L for the commercial machines comes from our own front loader spec sheet. If we use the low-average amount at 44L per cycle (for our own front loader) we get a value of 68,640L. A whopping 30 THOUSAND LITRES less than a domestic washer. As for energy usage, almost all machines are going to vary in their usage, but a quick look at the technical specifications of varying domestic products reveals most of those same machines use around 219-260 kWh. Most commercial washers will use significantly less than this (ours uses 0.67 kWh). When you add this on to your water savings that can be a significant chunk. 2. Repair costs Nothing is worse for a business that does several loads of laundry each day than a washing machine having a break down, especially when you rely on only one or two machines. If your washing machine breaks down then business slows down. To repair a domestic washing machine can cost anywhere from $100-$500 depending on the type of damage, the parts required to repair it and how long it will take. Now, that might not seem all that bad or out of the ordinary, then again if you keep up with the same demands on the machine after getting it repaired the first time you will only run into the same problems in no time and it wont be long until you end up paying the cost of

Commercial VS Domestic Washing Machine, Which Is Better?

January 3, 2020
Commercial vs Domestic washing machine, which is better and why? Firstly, Unlike domestic washing machines, commercial machines are made to handle much higher laundry demands where usage is up to all day, every day. Commercial machines are also designed to be easily serviced instead of frequently replaced. They also use much more heavy-duty parts. These are some of the parts that are “beefed up” to create a much more heavy-duty washing machine. In a nut-shell, commercial washing machines and commercial laundry equipment are designed with reliability and longevity in mind when compared to domestic machines. WarrantyAs you can imagine, commercial washing machines have solid warranty periods. Yet, there is one thing that many potential purchasers overlook. The fact is the warranties of domestic machines are quite often void or reduced if used in commercial applications. For instance, if a motel purchased a domestic machine to wash the sheets of their motel rooms and had an issue with their machine, it may not be covered under warranty as the motel is deemed to be a commercial application. Most customers are unaware that this is the case with domestic machines and have been left high and dry with near new machines with no warranty. Type – Front Load or Top Load? Most new businesses will choose to go with front load machines as they are more water efficient in comparison to top load washing machines. For example, our top load machine uses about 100 litres of water per cycle compared to the 42 litres of a commercial front load washing machine. This is a very important factor to consider for aged care facilities as they are very big consumers of water and any reduction they can get is a bonus. Not only do all commercial businesses have to pay for the water used in their shop, they also often have to pay approximately 80% -90% of the cost of the water used in trade waste charges here in Australia. For instance, if they use $100 of water they would also be charged about $80 – $90 in waste charges as well. Because of its action the front loader is recognised as supplying a greater wash quality compared to the top load model. Front load washers also have a much higher extraction speed, with our CW10 washer extracting at a speed of 1200 RPM whereas our CTL7 top loader extracts at 710 RPM. The higher extraction speed translates to a much-reduced time in the dryer as more moisture has been extracted during the spin cycle on the front loader. One of the defining features of a top loader that people prefer opposed to the front loader is the ability to keep adding linen after the wash cycle has started. This is not possible once the door locks on a front loader. The other determining factor to why people will choose one over the other is price. Based on our current models and pricing our top load washer is about $1000 cheaper than the
