Maximizing the Life of a Commercial Washer

viking laundry service

Those who rely on a commercial washer system understand the importance of the life of a washer. It’s just not practical nor cost effective to have to replace a commercial washer every two years or so. There can be significant downtime between the time a washer crashes and a new one is installed, especially if you consider all the research involved in choosing an even better, longer-lasting commercial washer system.

When a washer isn’t working properly, a company can potentially experience a serious loss in revenue and or customer satisfaction, depending on the industry. Because of this, it is extremely important to extend the life of each washer to keep it running as long as possible for the highest rates of both net income and return on investment.

First and foremost, if a business is going to require the use of a commercial washer – especially if it’s going to play a paramount role in the company – a high quality one should be purchased and professionally installed right from the start. Something from a more well-known and reputable brand will obviously be most likely to fit a company’s long-term needs. Brands we tend to work with and recommend include Maytag, Speed Queen, Wascomat, Milnor, Dexter, Unimac and quite a few others. In some cases, new business owners may feel lost when it comes to choosing the best fit, which is why, above all else, we advise they take their time to do their due diligence in determining the company’s needs and learning more about the laundry industry as a whole.

From there, proper maintenance should keep the appliance in top working order. You can’t rely simply on the fact that the machine is running as an indicator that everything is functioning properly – commercial washers tend to take quite the beating after all. Although most commercial washers will still run for a long while even after you start hearing noises or notice their spinning has become a bit irregular, sometimes though, those “symptoms” serve as an immediate warning sign, as the washer could even break down in the middle of a cycle. That being the case, the instant a washer starts behaving erratically, a professional technician should be called in to address the issue immediately – the cost spent on bringing in a repairperson to remedy the situation or replacing a laundry part will be exponentially less than needing to purchase an entire new washer or even system.

Besides choosing a high-quality washer and giving it routine check-ups, there are further actions business owners can take to extend the life of their commercial washers. First, make sure any replacement parts that are installed are from the original equipment manufacturer, even if the individual pieces cost more dollars than off-brand ones, remember you’re paying for quality. Additionally, staff should be trained properly on the use of the machines, load limits should always be respected and cycles should be allowed to run to completion since a large part of a washer’s cycle is to remove most of the water and detergent, both of which can be corrosive to the machine over time.

If you find the whole process of finding the perfect washer to be overwhelming, Viking Services can help you design a laundry system that best fits your needs, including workload and budget. Send us a message today to get started.

Electrolux Washer Service for California

If you own an Electrolux commercial washer in California, chances are pretty good that you have had to look for service at some point to have the machine repaired. Electrolux washers are actually one of the highest quality available on the market, so the fact that you’ve had to look for servicing isn’t an indicator that you should question the quality. Owners should understand that small problems with the machine can quickly become huge problems for a business, which is honestly the case for all commercial washing machine companies. With so many moving parts and functioning regularly under a heavy workload of liquids and fabrics, commercial washers are probably the hardest working appliances a business will come to rely on.

Still, whether you have a commercial washer from Electrolux that’s making insane noises or it’s completely stopped working altogether and your business operates in California, Viking Services can help you get your commercial washing machine up and running as quickly as possible.
Considering the fact that if you even own a commercial washer, there’s probably a high possibility your business losing money by not having access to the high-powered cleaning machine and all the clean clothes, towels or other linens it usually provides.

Luckily, there are a number of companies dedicated to keeping machines like Electrolux commercial washers running, though they may be a little difficult to find the moment that you need one. Viking Services is the company you should keep on your rolodex or cell phone for such emergencies as a caput washer or dryer. Viking, which fixes Electrolux machines as well as those of other brands, is a California commercial washer and dryer servicing and installation company that delivers high on customer satisfaction. Along with commercial washer and dryer fixing, they also sell individual parts for brands like Dexter, Maytag, Unimac, Huebsch and many more.

Although some businesses may simply need a repair on a single washer or drying, others may be a bit overwhelmed by the percentages of repairs needed. For people who fall into the latter company, a complete system overhaul may be the best long-term plan for keeping the business running cost effectively. Besides repair work, Viking Services is also well-versed in designing state-of-the art, cost-effective laundry systems for commercial businesses.

Whether a business needs a quick repair or wants to dive into a system overhaul, it’s best for them to do the research to find a reputable company. Many business owners will actually make the mistake of going straight to the manufacturer. However, by going this route, those who rely on a commercial washer end up paying a premium for service that dedicated repair services can honestly offer at a much more affordable price and in a much timelier manner.

If you are a business owner who relies on a commercial washer system, it is imperative that you find a good repair service that is efficient and will not break the company’s budget. Viking Services is available for consultations and to answer any questions about repair work or innovative systems, send them a message to get started today.

Save Money Through Routine Commercial Laundry Maintenance

laundromat service quotes

If there is one thing most business owners would agree on over anything else, it is that lowering operating costs is one of the most important things they can do. When it comes to businesses that rely on commercial washers and dryers, this can seem like a tricky endeavor, but that doesn’t mean it is an impossible undertaking. Although it may seem counterintuitive at first glance, one of the best ways for these companies to save money is to have their commercial laundry units inspected and repaired on a fairly regular basis.

Some business owners find this to be a difficult idea to adhere to. You can’t save money by spending money, right? Why hire a repair person to simply check up on commercial laundry units when there doesn’t appear to be any issues? The truth though is that regularly-maintained machines have a lifespan that far exceeds that of laundry units which are left unattended for long periods of time or that are only inspected after strange noises or odd rumblings.

With so many moving parts, even something seen as a “minor hiccup” can quickly become a devastating problem for a business owner who relies on the heavy-duty machine. Leaving a machine unattended for too long gives time for a minor issue to turn into a bigger one, which can result in the business owner needing to completely replace a unit or even an entire system – costing way more money than bringing a technician in for service. On the other hand, a skilled commercial washer and dryer technician will notice even minor issues and can quickly have it remedied (often during the same visit since smaller problems don’t usually require specialized parts or too much time).

By having a commercial laundry maintenance and repair person visit on a monthly or bimonthly schedule, business owners can actually end up saving money in the long run. This might sound like a head-scratcher, but a couple hours of labor every couple months is notably less expensive than a whole new laundry system every year or two.

Think of the maintenance in terms of auto insurance. You may think it’s pointless to have since you believe yourself to be an outstanding driver, but all it takes is one collision or to be pulled over just once for a traffic violations, and your lack of insurance could end up costing huge amounts of money even if the accident or infraction was no fault of your own. The exact same can be said about commercial laundry systems – a negligent employee, overzealous customer or some random mechanical or electrical issue could lead to a costly problem. Routine maintenance of your systems is the insurance that they will, for the most part, stay in working order without any pricey ramifications.

As with most things, there is no perfect solution that will stop all the problems that might afflict a washer or dryer. However, preventative maintenance from repair companies that use quality commercial laundry parts will keep those small problems from becoming painful expenses. If you think it may be time for your system to receive a check up, give Viking Services a call at (800) 269-6307 or send us a message.
