Buyers Guide

Now that we’ve given you a few recommended models, we’ll now share a few tips on things to consider when choosing between which one is right for your business.

Drum Size

One of the key considerations to take into account when choosing the right model for you is the size of it’s drum. Because, put simply, the drum size will be among the key determining factors in how much you are able to wash per day.

For some companies, having a smaller drum isn’t a problem as they don’t need to wash a serious amount of laundry each day, but for others, purchasing a larger washer will work out much more efficient.

Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficient Professional Washing Machines

Energy efficiency often gets overlooked when it comes to industrial washers, and companies make decisions in favour of the cheaper upfront costs. However, this is almost always going to be a mistake, as the long term savings your business can receive from purchasing an energy efficient model can be quite impressive.

Washing machines with automatic load control, for example, are able to automatically adjust the amount of water, detergent and electricity used to specifically match your wash your load – this saves you money on electric, water and detergent on every single wash. And when you take into account that you’ll likely be using the washer for many years to come – the savings add up quick.

Stackable Washing Machines

Some washing machines are “stackable”, which means you can safely stack another machine above it. This is especially handy if you’re a bit low on floor space or you run a laundrette.

Even if you’re not yet in a position where you need multiple machines, it may be worth getting a stackable model to give you that flexibility if you decide to explain in the future.

Short Programme Cycles

No matter what industry you’re in, there’s going to be times where you’re run off your feet and need something cleaned asap. This is when short programme cycles can be a total life saver.

Most washing machines will feature short cycles, but it’s always worth checking before buying to make sure they actually provide a thorough clean in that time – which is a problem with many cheap commercial washing machines.
