Thank goodness that the commercial washing and drying business will never become a dying breed. This sentiment is being raised in light of the fact that it has never been an enabling environment for the small business practitioner. Many laundromats and mom and pop laundries have had to close its doors owing to not being able to sustain itself. Apart from the ongoing challenges to do with competition within local operating environments, there have also been a great deal too many logistical issues to cope with. One salient shortcoming for many a small business practitioner has been the inability to source appropriately sized and tuned commercial dryer parts.
And that’s not even the start of it. If the small business handler was fortunate enough to have finally sourced his necessary replacement materials he had this next challenge. Where to source a solid technician whose sole purpose is to work with commercial washers and dryers, well, to fix them and restore them back to optimal use. Today, no serious-minded small business practitioner can afford to risk his repairs without insisting upon the display of the relevant trade certificate or credentials. But that’s the history. Business is not exactly booming, but at least it’s growing and it’s become sustainable.
There’s one aspect of this business that is making the sustainability possible. The supporting structures are in place. The local laundromat or the industry sized operating center, working from the heart of an industrial node, needs to be online for the moment of truth. The message arrives that the requisite parts and components have been sourced. And then there is this. A qualified and experienced technician has been located close to home. Help has arrived.
