That’s what I was thinking. That first video doesn’t look very efficient for a bulk amount of those commercial rugs.I've seen everything from pressure washer on the parking lot to full-sized Moore machines. These days most mat rental companies use soft backed mats that can be cleaned in a standard commercial tumbling washer.
In my area, I’ve been asked, they were offering 5$ a mat.... TO TAKE AWAY, CLEAN, AND DELIVER.... I laughed, AND LAUGHED SOME MORE....That’s what I was thinking. That first video doesn’t look very efficient for a bulk amount of those commercial rugs.
I just went to look at my customer’s rugs at their office they want cleaned every month. They just fired Cintas and I was curios how they did their bulk amount of rugs and what they charged per rug every month.
I have a connection with a local janitorial company here that could get me all the rugs from his accounts and I was wondering if it was worth investing in one of those commercial tumbling washers.
They just fired Cintas
It was poor service. Money isn’t a factor with this company.I sure hope Mat gets cleaned more than once a week.....
do you know why?
Don't know what a com washer costs to own and run .
Don't know if you could compete with the Big Box outfits without one???
You'll be soaking with with firewater, scraping gum and pressure washing them in the drive otherwise
In other words, margins are tight, even at volume. No thanks.....They can come in at a very low price to drive away competitors. They have a low quality mat as a price leader and a new heavyweight mat for an up charge. They actually drop mats at some of my accounts the mats still have a wet rubber backing. They do count how many they drop and pickup and the drivers get upset when the numbers don't match as they probably get dinged for a mismatch. These delivery guys move as hard as a UPS driver delivering mats.
