An Automated laundry system (a.k.a Smart laundry system) is an all-in-one integrated laundry rack that lets you dry your laundry inside your home. Utilising in-built heaters, fans, UV rays and ionisers such laundry systems aim to dry your laundry quicker than conventional racks and will provide additional functionality to disinfect and remove odours.

Selecting the right automated laundry system vendor

By following these steps, you can be sure to find the right automated laundry system vendor for your needs.

First, you need to decide what features you want in an automated laundry system. Start by looking at your home and ask yourself what is the problem that you want to solve and which feature is a must to address that. 

Take an example of a home that do not have direct sunlight and laundry will take a long time to dry. It is then important to find a system that features in-built heaters, fans and UV rays will help your laundry dry faster.

Once you know what you want, you can start looking at different vendors. Make sure to read online reviews of each vendor before making a decision.

Next, you need to compare price quotes from different vendors. Be sure to get quotes for purchase price, installation cost and extended warranty (if any). Installation and warranty are the most important factors when choosing an automated laundry system.

Finally, you need to make sure that the vendor you choose offers good customer support. This is important in case you have any problems with your system after it is installed.
