A Dry Cleaner’s Necessities

Owning a dry cleaning business is a simple, yet detailed organization to own. Many people still require professionals to clean their suits and delicate clothing. There are a few things one should keep in mind before starting a cleaning shop though. While some things are common knowledge, here are three things that often get overlooked when deciding on what to buy.

Hangers

While it may seem insignificant, the number of hangers you have is one of the most important things your business should keep track of. Once the clothes have been cleaned and ironed, they will be hung on a dry cleaning conveyor. This means that when you return items to their owner, they will be on clothes hangers, and your customers will keep the hangers. You need to make sure you have a continuous supply.

Tags

Once you receive your customer’s clothing, you will need a way to keep it coordinated and know which ones belong to who. The best way to do that is through tagging. Each item of clothing will retain its tag throughout the cleaning process so that every item is accounted for. Orders can either be organized through last name or numbers on the tags.

Machines

The best way to get more customers is to be able to handle more clothes. The size of your washer and dryer is really important. Make sure you choose machines that can handle large loads, as well as small. If you have a large enough set-up, you should invest in multiple machines. This will allow you to do several loads out once, giving you the opportunity to have more customers.

While you may be able to help a lot of people, you need to make sure you are doing a job well-done. People will only go to a cleaning facility that they trust to take care of their clothes.
