The equestrian business is a vast industry. It’s an image-conscious industry. Where the attire of the company and the horse are apart, the companies brand identity. Horses will undergo daily training around the stable grounds.

It’s important the right type of laundry is carried out on muddy saddle cloths and horse blankets. These blankets can garner a bad odour from the horse’s sweat. The sweat combines with the dirt and dust to form incrustations that block the ventilation pores in the fabric if it is not cleaned regularly.

Hygiene and infection prevention is essential to the welfare of the horse. This makes it is vital that you have a horse rug washing that can provide regular care and cleaning.

Domestic machines won’t cut it for equestrian laundry care. The machines are designed to that intensive use. Most domestic machines don’t have the capacity for the level of laundry care a stable would require.

What’s The Difference Between Domestic and Commerical Washing Machines?

Domestic washing machines are meant for home use only. These machines aren’t designed for intensive daily use. The parts of a domestic washing machine are much cheaper. These cheaper parts are made of plastic or lower quality metals.

When a domestic washer is used intensively in a commercial environment, the machine becomes vulnerable and will need constant repair.

One of the most common issues we have seen with laundry equipment repairs is that most companies are trying to save money by purchasing a cheap domestic washing machine.

This leaves their company exposed to break down’s at the wrong possible time. While most households can wait for repairs, small hotels, hostels and small veterinary practices don’t have the luxury of time.

How Much Do Commerical Washing Machines Cost?

This all depends on what type of machine you need for your business. As provided in some of the examples above, you can see that there are specific use cases for different machines.

It’s essential that you identify the needs of your company. This will prevent you from obtaining a machine that won’t meet your requirement or overpaying for a washing machine that you don’t need.
