Proper laundry facilities can be an important part of planning and maintaining any multi-unit housing. Many tenants need and look for laundry facilities when considering housing, and convenient facilities can often impact their leasing decisions. Having an on-premise laundry can help make a great impact in attracting and keeping tenants and can also be a valuable source of additional revenue!
Whether you provide complementary or vended laundry services, Dexter offers equipment designed to perfectly fit the multi-housing market and we know you are working hard to minimize your energy and water usage. That’s why you’ll find Dexter equipment in multi-housing laundries worldwide.
Larger Apartment Facilities
Large apartment structures can house many residents in a small space, and laundry facilities are very important in making your guests feel at home. For bigger apartment facilities, Dexter recommends a central laundry location on the main floor of your structure with one Dexter washer and one Dexter dryer for every 20 units.
High Rise Apartments
High-rise apartments can hold a large amount of residents in a small space, and laundry facilities are very important in making your guests fill at home. Depending upon the height of the structure, the laundry can be concentrated in one large area or in several smaller locations throughout the building. One Dexter washer and one dryer is recommended for every 20 units.
Small, Low Rise or Garden Apartments Complexes
For these smaller housing facilities, laundry locations can vary by layout, but are usually located in convenient common areas. One Dexter washer and one Dexter dryer pair are recommended for every 8 to 12 apartment units.
Condos, Co-ops, Senior Centers, Assisted Living & Communal Living
For planned communities, centralized laundry rooms or small laundry areas with matching washers and dryers are the most common. Usually these establishments are amenity oriented, offering folding tables and vending machines for the tenant’s convenience. One Dexter washer and one Dexter dryer are recommended for every 8 to 12 residences.
Military Housing, Dorms & Barracks
Dexter washers are found on military bases worldwide and are popular on bases, ships and in barracks for our heavy duty design and durability. Small laundry areas or larger central laundries both work in this type of facility depending on layout. Non-metered equipment is usually required. One washer and one dryer set are recommended for every 20 military personnel.
University Dorms, Residence Halls & Student Apartment Complexes
Student housing can involve many people in small quarters, and central laundry rooms are both a convenience—and a necessity. Many of these residents are doing their own laundry for the first time and Dexter is popular with these customers for being our large capacity and ease of use. For student residence halls and dorms, one washer and one dryer is recommended for every 30 to 40 students.
Guest Laundry (ideal for marinas, campgrounds, truck stops, etc.)
These guests are on the go and changes are they have laundry with them that they need to clean. By putting an on-site guest laundry, you are providing an attractive service that helps draw more visitors to your location, and that can also be a valuable source of additional revenue. Ask your Dexter Authorized Distributor about ways a coin or card guest laundry can improve your business.

Our Focus Is On Your Long-Term Success
Whether you’re new to the commercial laundry industry or a seasoned pro, you’ve found the opportunity that the self-service laundry industry has to offer and as a commercial laundry owner, you have many needs and choices. Choosing a distributor partner, commercial laundry equipment, laundry management system, and equipment financing are all important business decisions. Here are just a few ways Dexter and your WorldWide Laundry can help you succeed:
Durability & Reliability:
Lasting quality means you’re investing versus spending on laundry equipment. All Dexter commercial laundry equipment is built using heavy-duty, over-sized, commercial rated components. Our machines are designed to run efficiently, continuously, 24 hours per day. Cycle after cycle, year after year, Dexter machines show up for work ready to face the elements of a commercial laundry.
Our engineers use, abuse, and try to destroy a mechanical design before ever calling it a Dexter. We assume the very worst operating conditions, and engineer accordingly.
For example, our commercial and industrial washers all have to pass a 1,000 hour out-of-balance durability test. For this test, we take half the rated machine capacity, place it in one section of the cylinder, and run the washer at its highest spin speed for 42 days-non-stop. No component can fail. Every commercial washer design that Dexter sells has passed this test. You can rest easy knowing your new Dexter’s can handle even the most careless laundry customers for many years to come.
Performance & Utility Efficiency:
Greater efficiency equals better profit margin on every cycle. We continuously improve the performance of our professional laundry products because the most successful commercial laundry owners demand profitable results. Our industrial strength washers spin faster to extract more water from a load–conserving your drying energy. We made variable frequency drives standard on our washers because they can save you up to 60% on electricity. Our dryers feature heat reclamation to improve drying efficiency. The list of performance features goes on and on . The bottom line: better performing equipment saves time, money, and natural resources. Less waste equals more profit for you, the commercial laundry owner.
Simplified Installation and Competitive Financing:
We are continuously trying to make Dexter commercial laundry equipment easier to purchase, less expensive to install, and more economical to operate.
To save you installation time and money we engineered commercial washers that operate on single or three phase power that requires smaller electrical circuits, and draws fewer AMPS. These features alone can save you thousands on expensive utility upgrades from your local electric company. For your customer’s safety and convenience, we have made emergency stop buttons standard on every washer.
Our popular stack dryers require a single gas connection, single electrical connection, and even include a ventilation kit to simplify your duct work.
We have integrated our Easy Card payment system into every machine to save you installation and set-up time.
Through Dexter Financial Services WorldWide Laundry can offer you flexible laundromat equipment financing solutions at competitive rates. You can choose between a loan or a lease and fixed versus variable interest rates.
