Laundry can be pretty boring. Which is why it’s the perfect place to give your tenants an unexpected infusion of joy and excitement! Here’s some fun things you can do to lighten up their load:
Purchase a variety of different laundry detergents that your facility recommends using, and post signs encouraging them to try the different brands and scents. That’s also a fun way to spur them to use the detergent you prefer in the future.
Hire a Helper
Hire someone to monitor the laundry room on a day that’s usually pretty busy, or maybe for a special event. They could keep the laundry room tidy, offer to text your tenants when the cycle is done, and yes even fold clothes for them (as long as they ask permission first!).
Create a laundry-themed scavenger hunt around your property, and incentivize your tenants with a laundry credit or other similar bonus. This might be an extra useful activity if there’s a big common move-in day, and you could highlight things you’d like to educate new tenants about the property or laundry facilities.
If you don’t have it available for your tenants already, WiFi is a great way to encourage tenants to stay in the laundry room and keep an eye on their laundry while binge-watching their latest on Netflix.
It might seem like a silly goal to make laundry fun, but it truly can help your facility run smoother, and it’s the kind of thing that makes tenants appreciate being a part of the property!
