THE NEGATIVES OF ON PROPERTY LAUNDRY
Typically, hotels who use on premises laundry (OPL) do so for a variety of misguided reasons. They consider it to be more convenient, cost effective, and reliable. What they don’t consider is how much money is wasted in the process of a large scale OPL operation. Beyond the cost of machinery, which needs frequent upgrades and repairs, there is the cost of excess gas and electricity spent, which is often indistinguishable from the gas and electricity used in day-to-day hotel operations. Additionally, excess water which goes unrecycled and wasted costs hotels greatly. While it may seem convenient to keep laundry equipment on premises, space used on massive equipment is space that could otherwise be used as a source of revenue such as a spa or gym. In addition to this wasted space, the machinery needed to keep high quality linens in shape requires a lofty capital investment and precise chemical composition. Moreover, hotels tend to keep the same amount of laundry staff on hand regardless of current occupancy, and thus pay the same rate to their staff regardless of how much laundry is actually getting done.
