There is a learning curve when opening up a new business

I’ve managed to grocery store before and I know how to use a washer and dryer so I thought I was ready to own a laundromat.

It turned out to be a little bit more difficult than I thought. The first month I noticed that it was impossible to keep the laundromat cool. It was always very hot and humid and people were not happy about it. I didn’t want to lose the existing customers so I called out an HVAC company. The technician explained that the humidity was from all the washers and the dryers added to the heat. My existing air conditioning system simply was not ready to handle all of this heat and humidity. The technician suggested that I get a new HVAC system and add dehumidifiers. This was a huge expense and I was not sure I can afford after buying the laundromat. It took a few months, but I was finally able to take out an additional business loan to pay for the repairs. Thankfully it didn’t cost me too much more every month. Then I called the HVAC company back to get to work. They were able to install really good air conditioning along with the dehumidifiers that were suggested. Thankfully a lot of my customers stuck around and they notice the cool air right away. When summer rolled around I was very grateful for my decision as I started getting more and more customers to my laundromat. I guess word was spreading that I had a great air conditioning system and people were coming from other laundromats to use mine instead. Fixing an air conditioner system actually ended up paying for itself over about a two year’s time. I have learned a lot about running a laundromat since I purchased this place.
