Operating a commercial laundry facility requires that you know important information about the products you will be using, such has how they function and special features that they contain. Commercial washers and dryers are specifically built to withstand consistent daily use, and our products here at Commercial Laundries Inc are also built with metal components instead of plastic for a more sustainable lifespan. The average lifespan of commercial washing machines is 10 to 14 years, which is quite a noted accomplishment when considering that the machines are constantly in use. There is no difference in the type of cycle being used, whether delicate or heavy duty, all cycles equal one wash load. And industry standards compute the lifespan of commercial washing machines by how many wash loads a machine can handle before breaking down.

Although machines models such as top or front loading does not determine a machine’s lifespan, how the machine is cared for does matter. Machines that are neglected or abused will not last as long as machines that are well maintained. One of the many services that we provide here at Commercial Laundries is regular maintenance visits to keep your machines operating at their full potential. Our technicians and mechanics know exactly how to care for commercial washers and dryers to sustain their lifespan, and they also perform repair services when needed.

We are a leading family owned commercial laundries vendor in Florida since 1967 and we are well aware of our clients’ needs. That is one reason why we maintain a 15,000 square foot warehouse that is fully stocked with laundry equipment and parts, so that our clients have the equipment they need when they need it.

If you operate a commercial laundry facility in a student dormitory or multi-housing complex, you will need heavy duty, durable commercial washers and dryers than can withstand rigorous use. The lifespan of commercial washing machines should last about 8,000 loads or more. When machines are overloaded with laundry their parts will become stressed, causing more wear and tear and breakdowns. You may not be able to control the size of the wash loads of your tenants, but you can control load size if you have an on-site laundry facility in a commercial business such as a hospital. You can simply instruct your workers not to overload the machines, and if they have lots of laundry to do they should simply wash a few extra loads. This will help to keep your commercial washers and dryers stress-free, plus regular maintenance visits will keep your machines in tip top shape requiring fewer repairs.
