Despite a smaller initial cost, the commercial line is not automatically the best option on the long term when the time comes to buy a cleaning system. The industrial system can be a more durable and profitable investment if you plan on using your system for several hours or with multiple simultaneous users.
The motors of the commercial systems run with carbon brushes, which needs to be replaced every 500 hours of usage. For a business that cleans 2 hours per day, 5 days a week, the 500-hour mark will be reached within a year. With a maintenance cost of $500, your system's investment after 5, 10 or 15 years will be much higher in the end than if you had chosen the industrial system. As a matter of fact, the induction motor of a Drainvac industrial system runs without any carbon brushes. By removing friction, the motor's durability is greatly increased. In addition, maintenance must be done after a long 15,000 to 18,000 hours of usage, being a lot less costly in the long term. Note that the savings increase the more the system is used.
Several Users at a Time
The industrial system allows multiple users to work simultaneously from the same system. For example, if a job requires 4 people, you will need 4 commercial units, while only one industrial system would have been sufficient! With a maintenance cost of $500 per commercial system, you have just multiplied this annual cost by 4, which would translate to the number of units initially bought. Furthermore, an industrial central vacuum system has the equivalent size of 2 commercial units, while allowing up to 6 users to work simultaneously. Whereas the same space occupied by two commercial units would allow only 2 users to work at the same time.
Even if its initial cost is higher, an industrial cleaning system can turn out to be a judicious and economically right choice. Before buying, carefully analyze your needs to make your purchase the most profitable in the long term. For more information, do not hesitate to contact us as it will be our pleasure to help you.
