April 22 is Earth Day — the perfect time to think about making your laundry business a little more Earth-friendly!
Whatever type of laundry operation you run — be it a dry cleaner, laundromat, commercial laundry, or on-premises laundry — even small changes can have a large positive effect on the environment.
Luckily, what’s good for the environment is also good for your business. By eliminating harmful chemicals from the dry cleaning process you give your customers peace-of-mind and are likely to see your customer base grow. And by using water and energy efficient laundry equipment, you can dramatically cut your utility bills.
Good for business, good for the Earth. What’s not to like?
Solutions for Dry Cleaning Businesses
Wet Cleaning Is The Friendlier Alternative!
Traditional dry cleaning methods use chemical solvents to get garments clean and fresh. Unfortunately, these chemicals can be toxic to humans and to the environment.
With no solvents or other toxic chemicals required, wet cleaning is a much friendlier and safer way to launder “dry-clean-only” garments. Wet cleaning machines can launder traditional dry-clean-only fabrics like delicate wool, silk and viscose without any problem — and they are fast too. Garments can be ready for pick up in under an hour!
Why Is Wet Cleaning Better For The Earth & Your Business?
✓ No toxic solvents used
✓ No toxic chemical emissions
✓ Safer for you and your employees
✓ Increased customer satisfaction

Electrolux Professional Laundry Equipment Is The Sustainable Choice
Water Efficient Washing
You may know that approximately 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered in water, but did you know that just 3% of it is fresh water? With populations continuously increasing around the world, this freshwater is becoming more and more precious every year. Of course, as it becomes more precious, it also becomes more expensive. So, cutting your water consumption has benefits both for the Earth and for your business. Luckily, Electrolux Professional washers can cut water use by up to 50% every wash.
Energy Efficient Drying
Energy efficient drying starts with your washing machine. That is if your washing machine is a high G-force Electrolux Professional washer. Our high G-force models extract a lot more water than regular washers. This means garments need less time in the dryer, with less energy used, and less wear-and-tear. Add up to 25% more energy savings with Electrolux Professional dryers, and your business will be truly minimizing your environmental impact as well as your utility bills.
