Whether you’re in the hotel, bed & breakfast, hospital, or even in the food industry – laundry services are an absolute must. Business owners simply cannot compromise when it comes to cleanliness and guest satisfaction. If you’re still on the fence when it comes to laundry and you think “but it’s just laundry, it’s easy”, here are a few more reasons why it’s worth the venture:
1. Focus on your strengths as a business
The reason why outsourcing laundry has been doing so well is that it allows the business to focus on its core competencies. Outsourcing your laundry service makes sure that your team gives 100% of what is required of them without worrying about whether they did the laundry for over 300 table napkins from the last wedding or catering event. Knowing that a dedicated third party would handle your laundry so you can do what you do best will definitely lead to this next benefit:
2. Improved operations
When everyone in your business is doing what they were hired to do and not fuss about whether they’ve put the right amount of detergent in the washer, you can expect better time management in your operations. More hours were spent in training for the work related to the business rather than just doing a crash course in the laundry room.
3. It’s budget-friendly
Laundry services may seem like an expensive alternative to some, but the overall benefit outweighs the costs. It is more likely that laundry services have access to bulk or factory-priced liquid soap and chemicals for laundry – removing your need to worry about which brand to purchase and how much. You do not need to worry about buying a washing machine or a dryer nor the constant need to always have detergent or fabric conditioner available. You can cut a few items off your list and use the money for something else!
4. More free space
Instead of using an entire room or area for laundry such as a washing machine, dryer, or cabinets for all the cleaning materials and chemicals – outsourcing to a laundry service can take care of this mess and allow you to use the space for something more useful to the business, perhaps an extra storage room or office space.
5. Fresh Linens = Great Reviews
Let’s be honest: guest reviews can make or break a business. For instance, clean and aromatic bedsheets make the best first impression on guests checking into a room for the first time. When they associate your brand with something that smells good and fresh, the chances of them returning will be high. When you’re confident that your linens are always in tip-top shape, you don’t have to worry about bad testimonials from irate guests.
6. Leave it to the pros
You cannot simply underestimate the benefit of letting professionals handle your laundry needs. It’s not only to release yourself from the mental stress of worrying about dirty laundry, but it’s also to be able to reassure yourself and your clients that you have taken the necessary measures to guarantee their health and safety – even if it’s just their laundry. This extra step shows real dedication to providing excellent service, especially in a post-pandemic world.
7. Less dirty laundry, less stress!
Finally, when you are able to save time, resources, and energy on doing laundry, you’ll be able to do the things that truly matter to your life and your business. In this fast-paced business landscape – don’t let dirty laundry slow you down.
