Proper laundry facilities are an important part of planning and maintaining multi-unit housing. Many tenants need and look for laundry facilities when considering housing, and convenient facilities often impact their leasing decisions. Having an on-premise laundry can make a great impact in attracting and keeping tenants and can also be a valuable source of additional revenue!



For over 100 years, the name has stood for something that’s as important today as it ever was: dependability. In fact, we’ve never strayed from a focus on better-built equipment that delivers remarkable reliability, day after day. We’ve also never been more serious about making sure every part—whether it’s a door, drum or drive shaft—is up to the job.

Large Apartment Facilities

Large apartment structures 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 located 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 are very common and popular. 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 are 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, and 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 tenants’ convenience. One Dexter washer and one Dexter dryer are recommended for every 8 to 12 residences.

Military Housing, Dorms, and Barracks

Dexter washers are found on military bases worldwide and are popular on bases, ships, and barracks for their 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, and Student Apartment Complexes

Student housing involves 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. Dexter is popular with these customers because its machines are easy to use. For student residence halls and dorms, one washer and one dryer are recommended for every 30 to 40 students.

Guest Laundry (Ideal for Marinas, Campgrounds, Truck Stops, Etc.)

These guests are on the go and chances are, they have laundry with them that they need to clean. By putting in an on-site guest laundry, you are providing an attractive service that helps draw more visitors to your location. This is a valuable source of additional revenue.
