Before you begin with the washing, make sure you go through the entire user manual and understand how the system works, and what it has to offer, for different machines have different operating systems. Once you have read the user manual, give a trial with very few clothes and then you are good to go. But remember, before you start your washing, you know the load capacity that the machine is capable of taking and the total weight of your clothes. According to the calculated weight, you can put in your clothes, but it is better that you put in a little less than the total capacity for the better washing of the clothes. Say for example, you have a total of 20 kgs of clothes and your commercial laundry machine has a wash capacity of 10 kg each. It is better that you take 3 machines, where you put 3 kgs of clothes in two of them and 4 kg in the third one.

One such aspect is the drainage system near the area of the placement of the laundry machine. You must make sure that it gets easy to drain the water out because even if the delivery of water into the machine is a little farawar, of course not too much, but the place where the water will be drained after each wash must be close and big enough. Then comes checking the total weight of the machine so that you can finalise what ground you must place it in. For example, the heavier your laundry machine is, the more firm ground must be beneath the machine. Another point that you must never forget before placing the machine is that there are not many movable things around or beside the machine since with each wash, the machine will vibrate at a certain rate, and if there are movables around, there are chances that they might keep falling.
