That commercial laundry market has grown enormously over the past 20 years as the necessity for hygiene has become ever more important, but the conditions come with it have grown ever more difficult. No matter how reliable the laundry machines have become, there is an ever annoying need to solve breakdown problems as quickly and efficiently as possible.

By nature the laundry trade requires machinery that's large bearings supporting drums often working at very high spin rates and sometimes under unstable loads; the following brings great pressure on the working parts and also the electrical controllers that often have to accept and work under serious vibration for considerable periods of time. The damage to machines is something that will occur at sometime in its lifetime and whilst sometimes there is a time warning as things wear, there is always the possibility of breakdown at the most inconvenient circumstances.

Certainly the larger the organisation the more capacity and greater flexibility of capacity they may have to take up the slack when a breakdown occurs, but it is always possible that a major breakdown can cause catastrophic problems if not resolved immediately.

Without a doubt it may be possible to sub contract laundry services at the last minute but it may be limited and if secure, and and special services are required then this may well not be satisfactory. The upshot is that the service and maintenance side of the commercial laundry market has become very important and one of the major selling points of laundry equipment.

There is a trend towards providing better and more efficient repair and breakdown service. There is at least one major supplier off types of commercial laundry machines that offer a service 365 days of the year. This service can be used with everything from a painless technical and information service to access to engineers and spare parts.

Even when the larger laundries have their own break down and repair staff the access to 24 hour information and parts is of a great advantage. Firstly the idea allows the company concerned to work with a smaller excess machine capacity, which can be very useful in reducing capital costs. It also maintain a pool of advantage that smaller organisations that do not have much excess capacity are covered in a way that brings the potential for comprehensive closure to the barest minimum and reduces extra working costs to the minimum.
