Start a profitable laundry and dry cleaning business in Nigeria 2Many of the clothes we wear today e.g. business suits, expensive laces and brocades require much care than the use of ordinary water and soap for washing.
A professional laundry and dry cleaning services involves a process that uses a variety of chemicals rather then the use of just ordinary water and soap.
·        Before you start a profitable laundry and dry cleaning business, you will need to get some basic skills that will ensure your success.
·        You will need to build a strong customer base through sound customer care services
Also to succeed in laundry and dry cleaning business you must be passionate in rendering quality services. 
   The major requirement for starting a profitable laundry and dry cleaning business actually depends on the initial capital to be invested
    You can start from the scratch, I means on small scale with even less than N100, 000 and can also start on an industrial scale where you will need to buy expensive machines with at least N10million and above.
2.  You need to acquire practical skills in laundry and dry cleaning; 
     To successfully operate a professional laundry & dry cleaning business services, you will need to acquire some basic training from those who are already in the business.
This training you will equip with knowledge on how to handle clothes and different fabrics professionally to satisfaction of your customers.                                              
3.    Basic equipment/laundry machines required for setup 
     To set-up a small scale laundry business you will need a washing machine that can wash about 5kg 
     A drying machine. 
A   pressing iron.
     An ironing board or table.
    At least a 3kva power generator for alternative sources of power supply in case the public power supply goes off. 
           But to setup an industrial scale laundry and dry cleaning business, you will need an Industrial washing machine, industrial dryer and industrial ironing board. 
4.   Space and location required for setup.
     The location and size of space needed for setting up a dry cleaning matters a lot, because this two factors will also determine your rate of success or failure.

Housing Estate,
busy industrial areas 
Guest houses.
Also your working space should be able to accommodate all the equipment you will need to do the business.

You can rent a shop or an office space to start your dry cleaning business but, if you can’t afford the initial cost then you can as well use the free space in the house where you live as an operational base.                                     
5.    You need to get customers.
Customers are the key to the survival of any business!
Apart from profit consideration you must think of how to render quality services to both new and old customers who in return will patronize and pay you for the services rendered. 
  So you can start marketing your business to people around your neighborhood but with a promise of rending quality services to them. 
  Print business cards and share to potential customers. 
  Print hand bills and distribute to potential customers
Type letters of induction for your business and mail them to companies in your town or city.
6.    Materials needed for laundry and dry cleaning of fabrics. 
    Powder detergents for washing white clothes.
     liquid detergents for washing colored clothes.
    liquid cold water starch. 
         Clean water supply. 
         Stain removing chemicals.
    Packaging nylon.
    How to fix your own rates.
So before you fix the rate your customers will pay for your services, you will need to find out the current rates other operators in your location are charging and then fix yours appropriately.
Your rates should either be the same with what other operators are charging or a bit lower to attract some customers.  
 Note. With aggressive marketing, quality services and a fair pricing you will be encouraging more customers to do business with you.
I believe, if you can implement all the ideas contained in this article to setup your own laundry and dry cleaning business, you are sure of making at least N200, 000/month for small scale setup and as much as 1million naira/month for industrial scale.
Definitely, Laundry and dry cleaning is indeed a good business opportunity in Nigeria because it has a high return on investment.
Therefore, I urge entrepreneurs to take advantage of this great opportunity to setup a profitable laundry and dry cleaning services that will attract lots of customers and money.
