Commercial laundry

The term commercial laundry is used similar to the term professional textile care and covers all companies that are offering a textile cleaning and / or textile management service. Roughly the sector can be split up in:

  1. Retail laundries, such as laundromats, dry cleaners or laundry on demand services
  2. Industrial laundries, which can either be On Premises Laundries (OPLs) or independent laundries that service other companies or institutions.

Commercial laundry is a relatively small industry on a global basis but as every country is in need of laundry services the industry covers a global scale.

A more detailed description is provided under the definition of Professional Textile Care.
