Hardey Roopra owns two West London launderettes under the name Y & N Washeteria, one in Hounslow and one in Southall. Both are equipped with Speed Queen dryers supplied by Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems. In 2013 the Hounslow launderette was re-equipped with five 2x30lb Speed Queen Twinstar stacked dryers and two of the large 50lb capacity Speed Queen Loadstar dryers.
Mr Roopra told us that most of his business comes from residential customers – the area has a high density of rental properties. “Many of the landlords round this area either don’t supply washing machines or they break down,” he said, “so I pick up that business”. He also gets a lot of additional drying only customers during the winter months when clothes can’t be dried outside, as well as football kits from local youth teams.
The launderettes are open from 8am to 7.30pm seven days a week and are attended part time for a couple of hours in the morning and again in the evening. During the attended hours the staff carry out service washes, including a duvet service.
Mr Roopra’s staff carry out servicing and routine maintenance on the dryers which are designed with easy of service in mind. “The dryers are very good,” he told us, “and I am very happy with the relationship with Armstrong.”
