The Benefits of Providing Laundry Services as an Added Amenity
As a property owner, there are basic amenities that can make or break your business. Not only do you want to make sure that you’re maintaining a competitive edge with your offerings, but it’s also important to know which services will give you the most return on your investment.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average person could spend anywhere between half an hour and two hours per week doing laundry – that adds up to over 100 hours of laundry each year!
Keeping that amount of time in mind, there’s an obvious need from your tenants for a convenient laundry service. And for multi-housing properties, providing on-site community laundry rooms is an excellent solution for your renters.
But how can investing in a multi-housing laundry room benefit you as a property owner?
1. You can save money, while making money. On-site laundry facilities typically cost less than offering private washers and dryers in each unit because they require less machines, so you’ll be cutting costs when it comes to energy and water consumption.
Leasing your community laundry room to a card-operated or coin-operated washer provider can even help your facility become a passive source of income. Washco Laundry Equipment offers plans where you let us lease your multi-housing laundry room. In return, we will install all new commercial washers and dryers, pay you a generous percentage, and provide free service anytime—all at no cost to you.
2. Attract potential tenants. If your competition does not provide a laundry service, you can set yourself apart from the rest. The convenience of on-site laundry is a huge perk for renters who do not want to spend time going to a laundromat.
3. Boost resident satisfaction and retention. Keeping your tenants happy means less turnover and more profit, and a great way to keep them happy is with an advanced laundry facility with well-managed equipment. The social aspect of a shared laundry room can also help neighbors get to know each other and form a sense of community.
Washco Laundry Equipment can also add value to your multi-housing laundry facility in other ways. We offer energy-efficient machines from trusted brands like Maytag and Speed Queen that can help keep the cost of consumable resources to manageable levels, and provide service, parts and replacement equipment to help you save on maintenance costs. We may even be able to help you redecorate your laundry room!
