Elevate Your Salon’s and Spa’s Success with this Incredible Asset: Commercial Laundry Equipment

Running a salon or spa can be challenging. There are so many factors that you can’t control, like clients that run late, staff that call off, with no warning and the unpredictable ebb-and-flow of appointments. But one thing you can control is your laundry equipment.

Having the right laundry equipment can make a big difference in the efficiency of your operations and how clean your laundered items look and smell. It can also provide customers with a better experience leading to repeat business and greater profitability.

What Type of Laundry Equipment Should Salons and Spas Get?

It might be tempting to buy residential-sized washers and dryers because it seems like a cheaper option. Don’t fall for it. There are many reasons why the initial higher price point for commercial washers and dryers will pay off for you in the long run.

Here we’ll talk about a few key reasons why commercial laundry equipment is an incredible asset for salons and spas, along with how to choose equipment and options for getting commercial washers and dryers that don’t require a large up-front investment.

Large Capacity: Wash More Laundry in Less Time

What’s on your laundry list? Salons and spas seem to have never-ending piles of towels, sheets, robes, uniforms, linens, gowns, slippers, haircutting and coloring capes, bolster covers and face rest covers – and they all need to be laundered frequently.

With a much larger capacity than residential laundry machines, commercial laundry equipment can wash and dry more laundry in a single load. This means you’ll end up spending less money on staff time, and reduce water and energy costs. Better yet, greater laundering capacity will help ensure you have an adequate supply of clean linens to service your customers.

Durability: Built to Last

Commercial laundry machines are built with heavy-duty components that can withstand the rigors of salon and spa use. They are designed to be used for many hours per day. This means you can rely on them to get the job done, day in and day out. Additionally, when repairs are needed, parts and service are readily available from H-M Company.

Energy Efficiency: Promote Sustainability and Save Money on Your Energy and Water Bills

Sustainability is a growing concern for businesses across industries, and salons and spas can contribute by opting for energy-efficient laundry equipment. Here at H-M Company, we offer energy and water efficient equipment that can help you support sustainability efforts and save you money on your bills.

For instance, RinSave by Milnor can save you up to 0.4 gallons of water for each pound of laundry processed! This results in lower water bills while reducing the impact your operation has on the environment.

Squeaky Clean Laundry Every Time

Towels and linens are often soiled with hair color, makeup, hair bleach, face masks, tanning sprays, scrubs, nail polish, oils and lotions. The large capacity of commercial laundry machines allows for large loads that are not packed together. Detergent and water can more easily reach all the surfaces of laundry, resulting in a superior wash. They also have a higher spin cycle to remove more water from the laundry, which helps items to dry faster. Less time in the dryer means lower energy costs and your linens are available faster.

The benefit of fresh laundry is more than just a matter of cleanliness. Clients often have their noses in sheets, pillow covers, towels and blankets. You want these not to just be clean, but to smell delightfully fresh too. And I’m sure you want to use sparkling towels and other linens that are stain and spot free on your clients.

The positive impact on your clients’ experience is one of the factors that can make you stand out over your competitors. This can increase client retention, and ultimately increase sales.

Cost-Effective: A Long-Term Investment

The initial cost of owning commercial laundry equipment outright is higher than residential laundry equipment. However, the long-term savings in time, energy, maintenance costs and superior durability can make commercial laundry equipment a more cost-effective investment.

Not sure that you want to own equipment? That’s ok. We’ll talk about leasing options without investing much upfront a little bit later.

Increased Productivity: Free Up Your Staff

Commercial laundry equipment can also help you increase your productivity by freeing up your staff to focus on providing services for clients and other higher-value activities. This can lead to increased customer satisfaction, repeat business and show up in your bottom line.

How to Choose the Right Commercial Laundry Equipment for Your Salon or Spa

When choosing commercial laundry equipment for your salon or spa, there are a few things to keep in mind.

  • The size of your business: How many clients do you see each day? How much laundry do you generate? You need to choose equipment that can handle the workload. H-M will also evaluate your facility, so you make optimal use of the laundry room.
  • The type of laundry you do: Do you wash towels, sheets, blankets and possibly other items like robes or slippers? You need to choose equipment that is designed to wash and has different settings for the specific types of laundry you do, some of which may be more delicate.
  • User-friendly machines: The right equipment will streamline laundry processes, saving time and effort for staff members. Proper training in equipment usage further enhances productivity, empowering the team.
