Commercial Washing Machines Nairobi
Commercial machines are made to handle much higher laundry demands where usage is up to all day, every day. Commercial machines are also designed to be easily serviced instead of frequently replaced.
They also use much more heavy-duty parts. These are some of the parts that are “beefed up” to create a much more heavy-duty washing machine.
- Bearings and Bearing Housings
In a nut-shell, commercial washing machines and commercial laundry equipment are designed with reliability and longevity in mind when compared to domestic machines.
As you can imagine, commercial washing machines have solid warranty periods. Yet, there is one thing that many potential purchasers overlook.
The fact is the warranties of domestic machines are quite often void or reduced if used in commercial applications.
For instance, if a motel purchased a domestic machine to wash the sheets of their motel rooms and had an issue with their machine, it may not be covered under warranty as the motel is deemed to be a commercial application.
Most customers are unaware that this is the case with domestic machines and have been left high and dry with near new machines with no warranty.
