how many loads per week are mos machines good for?
I live in a small apartment building, and we're currently renting commercial machines. But they're WAY overpowered for us, and to service the rental, the fees per load are too high.
One solution I want to explore is simply buying two HOME washers and two home dryers, and installing them.
But one issue, of course, will be whether we'll wear out home machines too quickly.
Most people keep their home washers several years, and we can't be the only family that does 7 to 9 loads in the average week.
So I'm wondering if anyone can tell me how long machines last nowadays, and how many loads most machines are expected to handle in a week.
If you can steer me to any "authoritative" source, I'd be really grateful!
