6 Reasons for businesses to choose an on-site laundry

Businesses in a wide variety of sectors face a decision about whether or not to out-source their laundry process, and in most cases it makes far more sense to keep the operation in-house. There are benefits to be had for a number of organisations, including:

  • Hospitals and hospices
  • Hair and beauty salons
  • Restaurants and cafés
  • Hotels and guesthouses

…and many more.

Lower running costs

It’s highly unlikely that outsourcing will result in any reduction in cost. By its very nature, moving the operations to another organisation will usually prove to be more expensive. When margins are already tight, an on-site laundry can help give these a much needed boost.

More control over standards

While you may save time and hassle outsourcing laundry, you will then have very little input into the quality of service that is being provided. Whether you are providing your customers with tablecloths, towels, clothing, bedding or anything else, your reputation is at stake if these items are not perfectly laundered.

Reliability of top quality machines

Choosing the right type of industrial washing machine is a must, and once you’ve done that you can look forward to many years of perfect results with a minimum of fuss. Did you know that Miele Professional appliances are capable of running for more than 30,000 hours, the equivalent of operating for eight hours a day for more than ten years?

Quick washes just when you need them

Every top quality industrial washing machine is able to offer the user a versatile range of programmes, so when you are in a hurry you can easily switch to a faster option. A quick wash programme can bring the results you need in as little as 40 minutes, a welcome touch during crucial periods.

You don’t need lots of space

It goes without saying that in many establishments there is a limited amount of space for the laundry operations, but this doesn’t need to be a worry. In fact, some Miele Professional appliances are perfect for stacking one of top of another, enabling businesses to run a state of the art laundry process in a floor area of just one square metre.

Energy efficiency

Every highly rated industrial washing machine offers energy efficient operation which is backed by accreditation from a number of important bodies. If an appliance is approved by WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) and the government’s WTL (Water Technology List), you can rest assured that you are helping the environment along the way.
