You may have noticed a curious-looking thing standing on a corner in one of your trips to your favourite clothing store. Also if you happen to be early or in your favourite store during an off-peak moment or hour, you might have caught a store attendant or two using it on the clothes. You would notice the steam from it to the piece of fabric. That curious thing standing on a corner is called a professional steamer. Most clothing stores would have one or a couple of these at hand. The store’s professional steamer helps them keep their clothes neat and fresh for long periods of time. With professional steamers, it should be no wonder that brand new clothes feel so good to wear!
But clothing stores are not the only business entities that use professional steamers. Other industries involved in fabric manufacturing, distributing, warehouse keeping and the like are also using professional steamers. Depending on their company need, they may be using or needing garment steam iron, commercial steam iron, professional steamer or the professional steam press.
One of the things businesses need to consider when purchasing such equipment would be the nature of their business. Does their business have anything to do with fabrics? Do they give special attention to the fabric in their business? Clothing stores would. Hotels and resorts do too. Most fabric warehouses do. Several restaurants pay close attention to this detail too.
Another set of questions would be regarding the amount or scale of their fabric. How much of their fabric would they subject to a professional steamer? What are the dimensions of that fabric? How fast do they want their cleaning done and how often? These questions would give the idea of the kind and the size of professional steam iron they would need. For example, if their business is a medium scale clothing store needing a once a week steaming for their clothes and they have two store attendants to get the job done, they would need one to two professional steamers. If their business is a restaurant and all the fabric they need to subject to professional steamers are the curtains, they would need just one professional steamer.
On the other hand, if their business is a top-of-the-line fabric warehouse business whose yards and yards of fabric needs professional steam ironing or pressing once every month or two, they would need a professional steam press. Maybe they would be requiring some professional cleaning service provider to help them out carrying the task of keeping their fabric fresh and crease-free.
Last but not the least; businesses should consider their budget when availing of professional steam iron or professional cleaning services of the sort. The nature of business and the scale of fabric as mentioned above should help in determining the budget. One last reminder that business people need is that for technological equipment, they should put a depreciation value of at least three years to their budget for a professional steam iron. Once done, I hope that they consider adding a professional steam iron in their equipment. This tool will come in very handy in making a good impression with clean and smooth fabric on their clotheslines, curtain racks, furniture or even themselves.
