Countless companies deal with sourcing and maintaining employee uniforms, a behind-the-scenes operation that requires timeliness and exceptional care. Every uniform must fit the employee and the brand well, each employee needs enough uniforms, and all these uniforms must be clean and in good condition. Businesses can decide between commercial laundering and in-house laundering. Which is right for you?
Commercial Laundering vs. In-House Laundering
Do you have the space for a complete in-house laundering service at your commercial property? Even if you do, could it go toward another priority besides laundering? Outsourcing your commercial laundry, including floor mats, towels, and aprons, can save significant space you can use for another purpose.
Uniform & Linen Services
Uniform and linen services include much more than doing laundry. They encompass uniform fitting, distribution, repairs, replacements, and branding. A company could perform all of these services in-house, but it could also outsource a uniform rental company to do all of this, plus the weekly laundering.
Time to Focus on Your Business
The mission of your business should be your focus. There are many additional tasks that your company may need to accomplish. What tasks are central to your business and take the most time? If you can outsource certain tasks to an affordable, professional uniform rental, you can make more time for other goals.
The home laundry machines often do not hit the mark for cleaning employee uniforms. Depending on the industry, clothing could sustain oil, grease, chemicals, bodily fluids, and other harsh substances. If you have industrial-grade laundry machines on your property, be ready to maintain them as well. Otherwise, a uniform rental already has those equipment in place.
It costs less to go with commercial laundering vs. in-house laundering. While in-house laundering offers more quality control and availability on your part, you can also trust a professional launderer to maintain high-quality cleaning and other uniform and linen services. All in all, you can get the same if not better results with commercial laundering for less money.
