4 Things to Consider When Choosing the Right Automated Laundry System For Your Home

1. Amount of Space Available 

The first thing to consider is the space you have available and choosing the best suitable place to install your automated laundry system. This might be in your balcony,  service yard or kitchen. Make sure the area is free from obstructions or space constraints that might not allow the full extension of your automated laundry rack. 

After determining the space where the laundry rack system will be installed, it is best to measure the length and width of the space. Don’t forget to measure the height of the ceiling as well. Afterwards, consider the size of the laundry rack you want to install and make sure it will fit in the space. Take into account any additional storage space in the area. If the laundry rack will be used to hang clothes, make sure there is enough room for them to hang and it does not affect the use of other cabinets around the area. 

2. Load Capacity

Check the weight capacity of the automated laundry rack. Most automated laundry racks come with a maximum weight capacity that should be listed in the product description or on the product packaging. If it is not listed, contact the manufacturer for more information. 

Consider the size of the items you will be storing on the rack. If you are storing heavy items such as blankets or towels, make sure the rack can support the weight of these items. Check the construction of the automated laundry rack. Make sure it is sturdy and well-built with reinforced joints and strong metal components. Look for reviews from other customers who have used the automated laundry rack. This will help you to get an idea of the quality of the product and its ability to hold up against heavy loads.

A laundry rack system in Singapore suitable for a family of four to five should be able to accommodate a load of up to 12kg washing machine, which is roughly equivalent to 40 shirts. An 8kg washing machine should provide a good estimate for the typical load of a family of this size.

3. Dropping Height

When taking into account the limited space you have, don't forget to factor in the fact that an automated laundry system can be descended from the ceiling so that you can hang your laundry. Besides evaluating the length and width, you will have to contemplate the ceiling's altitude too. Generally, if you don't have a tall ceiling, this won't be an issue. However, it is always helpful to be aware of how much the laundry rack can be dropped down and if it is within reach for you to easily hang your clothes.

4. Suitable Function

As you think over the decision to purchase an automated laundry system, the most important thing is the function that the system itself has, as different models have different features. Basic model has the most basic functions, such as automatic drop down and LED light. Functional model has more advanced features such as heater, blower and UV sterilization. Whether it be a basic model or a functional model, you need to consider the pole length that can suit your installation area.  

Buying an automated laundry rack is a great chance for homeowners to revamp their laundry routine. It can make washing and drying your laundry more effective, as well as saving you time, funds, room, and energy.
