Party & Vacation Rentals

party rental market iconStop outsourcing your rental property’s laundry! We can help you create an on-premise commercial laundry that saves utility and labor costs while improving linen turn-around. It will also save you money over processing linens elsewhere. We do so by increasing the extract speed of our Continental washers to reach more than 300-plus G-force, doubling that of most other front-load washers. The result? Our washers can cut dry time by as much as 50 percent. A shorter dry time also reduces wear and tear on linens and sheets. The automatic chemical injection process also eliminates the need to manually add chemicals and cuts down on human error, overuse, and the price of detergent. Drying tumblers and flatwork ironers are also available to finish tablecloths, napkins and linens. Linens can be fed directly from the washer to the ironer – without drying – again cutting labor and utility costs and boosting laundry production.
