Do you own a commercial building with a laundry room that tenants are welcome to use?
It’s going to be important for you to find ways to keep your laundry cost on the lower end of the spectrum. At the same time, you’ll need to do this without sacrificing cleanliness when you’re helping people with washing clothes.
Fortunately, there are some relatively simple and straightforward ways to reduce your laundry cost while still supplying people with superior laundry room services. Here are the laundry management steps you can take to keep your costs down.
Invest in Energy Efficient Laundry Equipment
To keep people happy, you’ll obviously need to provide them with laundry equipment. Ideally, you’ll want this laundry equipment to be as energy efficient as it gets to keep your laundry cost down.
If you have laundry equipment that’s on the older side, it might not be anywhere near as efficient as you’d like for it to be. Investing in new equipment will be necessary, but it will pay off over time since the operating costs will be lower compared to using the old equipment.
Maintain Laundry Equipment and Keep It Clean
Outside of setting up the most energy-efficient laundry equipment possible in your commercial laundry room, you should also see to it that you’re properly maintaining it. The better you take care of your equipment, the more efficiently it will run.
You should make it your mission to repair any laundry equipment that isn’t working the way it should. You should also learn about how to clean washing machines and dryers so that you’re able to avoid having to make unnecessary repairs to them in the future.
Share Energy-Saving Tips With Those Using Laundry Equipment
Did you know that using cold water while washing clothes uses much less energy than hot water does? Informing people who use your washing equipment of this energy saving tip might lead to them using cold water to wash clothes more often.
It wouldn’t be the worst idea in the world to hang up signs in your laundry room with energy-saving tips on them. Not everyone is going to put these tips to good use (or even take the time to read them!). But there will be at least some people who will try to incorporate these tips into their laundry habits, which could lead to a lower laundry cost for you.
