Launderette water softeners, a commercial or semi-commercial water softener, is a critical business investment if your business is located in a hard water area. Hard water can have a huge impact on laundry and washing machine efficiency which could be causing you excess costs and bad business.
How Hard Water Is Causing Problems:
Clogged Pipes & Taps: hard water contains ions that cause limescale. Limescale can block your taps and the pipers in your hot water system. By blocking pipes, limescale can cause breakdowns and damage to your water system which may need repairing. It also means your system is less efficient and results in higher energy bills.
Limescale Deposits: Limescale also causes washing machines and taps to look dirty. It requires extra cleaning and can leave you with a bad reputation.
Damaged and Short-Lived Washing Machines & Dryers: Protecting your machines is vital to decrease costs long term. Hard water causes damage to the interior and exterior of your machines. That they can have a lot more issues and damages and end up breaking a lot sooner than expected – up to 50% less life span. Having to repair or replace multiple washing machines can be costly.
Rough Clothing, Towels & Bed-linen that Appears Dirty & Dull: customers coming to your business are paying for a service and to have their garments washed. However, hard water ions affect the look and feel of laundry. They leave towels, sheets and clothing feeling rough and looking dirty – despite using excess washing powder and fabric softener. This can be extremely unpleasant for customer and can lead to complaints for your business. In addition, you’ll need to use 2x as much washing powder and softener than is required with soft water. That’s because hard minerals react negatively with hard water ions – they don’t create a lather or effectively clean laundry.
Skin Irritation: hard water can cause skin irritation and eczema customers.
More Money Spent on Washing Powder & Softeners: Hard water needs 2x as much powder than soft water which can add up costs for your business.
More Time Is Needed To Clean:Cleaning products are less effective with limescale and more time and money is required for effective cleaning.
High Maintenance Costs: replacing appliances, cleaning and boiler repairs can all add up a lot of unnecessary excess maintenance costs.
How Can a Water Softener For Washing Machines Help?
A commercial water softener caters for businesses that use a lot of water and are designed to remove hard water ions from the main water supply. This ensures soft water from your taps and outlets before it enters your machines. The benefits of a washing machine water softener include:
No More Limescale: a water softener can help remove existing limescale over time and prevents limescale. That means you can protect your washing machines, taps, appliances and heating systems.
Better Water Pressure & Heating: By removing limescale, you’ll find a more consistent water pressure and temperature to benefit your business.
Longer Lasting Machines: Washing machines and dryers all have a much longer life - up to 50% longer, which can save thousands of pounds.
Super Soft and Clean Laundry: with soft water laundry, bed sheets and towels will be super soft, clean and bright for a great customer experience.
Less Time Spent Cleaning & Easier, More Effective Cleaning: soft water means an easier job for staff, and extra clean facilities and bathroom areas for happy guests.
50% Less Detergent & Softeners: without the hard minerals, soft water can cause a great lather with detergents. That means you can use up to 50% less washing powder and softeners.
Lower Maintenance Costs: soft water means less maintenance costs and issues for your business.
