The real in-house laundry costs
for an average hospitality place in Santa Teresa
It’s a kind of impossible challenge to get professional results when dealing with your own in-house laundry and it becomes a nightmare while you want to know the real costs behind the scenes since they’re diluted in your overall operations costs.
To help you to have a better view on this, we have closely collaborated with a well known place in Santa Teresa to monitor every single aspect of their in-house laundry steps for a few months to get a clear and understandable view on the real costs of any in-house laundry.
The average place
Location: Santa Teresa (1st line)
Number of double beds: 2 king size beds
Numbers of simple/twin beds: 18 twin beds
Average ration the change bed sheets: every 3 days
Average ratio to change towels: Every 3 days (pool towel every day)
Average soiled laundry per week in Kg: +/- 450 kg a month
Average occupation rate: 76 %
Washing machines: 5 (2 to be repaired)
Dryers: 3 domestic units
As a habit, machines are not at all loaded to their maximum to avoid getting them broken more often. This place runs 26 washing machines and 10 dryers per week. Bed sheets are not ironed and chemicals use is required to get proper results (which are not always perfect).
