Rolling laundry carts are easy to use, versatile and efficient. A person doing the laundry or housekeeping, whether it is working in the commercial textile industry, at a hotel or care facility, at the laundromat or at home, the rolling laundry carts are a handy tool to have.

Rolling laundry carts can be used to carry liquid and powder detergent, fabric softener, spot and stain removers, and all other supplies close to the washer for easy access. The laundry and linens are piled into the cart for easy transport to and from the washer, dryer, and folding areas. You can load the rolling laundry carts with clothes hangers, sorting containers and bulk plastic containers to sort and organize the laundry after it is finished for easy movement.

There are many different types and sizes of rolling laundry carts. For instance, the laundry truck, commercial laundry cart and industrial laundry carts are different types of rolling laundry carts and they are made in different sizes and shapes to be used for the various or designated work. The industrial laundry carts are large and deep to carry large amounts of textiles and linens to the cleaning area.

The textile and housekeeping industry rely heavily on rolling laundry carts to make their work easier, save on back strain and allow for a place to store soiled and clean items as they are moved from the area of use to the cleaning area and back again to the area where the linens and textiles will be used.

The cleaning service industry is large and growing in the United States. In May of 2013, approximately 2.3 million people were working in that industry, with janitors and cleaners making up the largest portion of employees and this number does not even include maids or housekeeping cleaners. Most commercial laundry industry managers, over 75%, agreed that the commercial laundry business would be improving in their sector over the next 12 months from May 2014 to May 2015.

The typical commercial textile services plant operates five to six days per week although some are in operation every day and with multiple shifts per day. A plant that focuses on the healthcare business would clean and process as much as 40,000 pounds of textiles daily. The hospitality business would process 64,000 pounds while industrial would be 19,000 pounds of textiles. These are amounts for the average size Textile Rental Services Association laundry plant.

The TRSA organization holds conferences and provides a clearinghouse of information and connections for the companies and suppliers in the commercial textile processing area. About 15 billion pounds of laundry is processed by the U.S. commercial textile services industry per year, according to estimates from TRSA. For instance one problem in hospitals is the premature loss of linens and that is very costly. The TRSA provides best practices in the handling of soiled linens for safety of workers and to alleviate or prevent tossing of linens that could be cleaned with appropriate commercial cleaning processes.

The commercial laundry industry uses rolling laundry carts as part of doing business. The reason rolling laundry carts are such an essential item in the cleaning service industry is because of the wheels. The fact that rolling laundry carts are on wheels allows the cart to be moved almost effortlessly, even when it is loaded down with items to be used for cleaning or with linens and textiles that are cleaned or to be cleaned.

The plastic molding manufacturer is responsible for the creation and manufacture of the plastic wheels. They make plastic molded parts using custom roto molds or custom rotational molding to create wheels for industrial, commercial and other types of rolling laundry carts. Cast tooling is relatively inexpensive and can be completed in six to eight weeks, the length of time depending on the complexity of the design. It is the most common type of tooling used in rotational molding for that reason and also because it offers a wide range of surface finishes and textures.
