Saving time and money for your business is back in fashion!

Clothes retailers are fast cottoning on to needing an affordable and labour-saving solution to getting their goods out on the rails looking their best and ready for consumers to ‘shop til they drop’.

Investing in a commercial steamer means no need for ironing with the bonus that new deliveries from suppliers can be out of the box and out on the hangers and shelves in a matter of minutes – wrinkle free and ready for the fashion hungry customers.

Here, we take a look at some of the reasons they are the ultimate time-saving gadget…


Wardrobe ready – Commercial steamers are specifically designed to be able to handle a wide range of various fabrics and textiles from delicate silks and fine knits to heavy cottons and denims.

The steam penetrates deep into clothing fibres, relaxing them and removing even the most stubborn creases which traditional irons can find particularly challenging.

Easy and versatile – Using a steamer is much quicker and easier than an iron, heating up quickly as soon as required and ideal for use on garments that are more difficult to press, such as jackets, shirts and clothing with more intricate designs and folds.

Along with clothing, they are excellent for use on drapes, curtains, upholstery and bedding, making them a more versatile tool for use elsewhere in your shop.

The steam produced sanitises fabrics by killing bacteria, dust mites and other allergens, contributing to a healthier environment for both employees and customers.

Professional and enticing presentation – Showcasing your garments at their best is critical for sales in any shop or fashion outlet.

Ensuring they are wrinkle-free and looking good enhances the overall look and aesthetic of the shop and therefore attracts more customers. Providing freshly steamed clothing ensure customers that purchase them will be satisfied with the professional approach and attention to detail by the retailer.

Cost and environmental efficiency – Steamers are gentler on fabrics compared to irons and help to reduce immediate wear and tear on new items, ultimately extending the life of the garments.

Most commercial steamers are specifically designed to be energy-efficient, consuming less power than traditional ironing systems and leading to more cost savings on electricity and less impact on the environment.

Steam cleaning eliminates the need for chemical fabric treatments, providing a more eco-friendly approach to fabric care. Steamers also use less water compared to traditional laundering and dry-cleaning processes, supporting water conservation.

Space saving – All floor space is valuable to clothing retailers as every inch of space offers a sales opportunity. Commercial steamers are often more compact than ironing setups, saving valuable floor space in your shop and allowing for a more organised workspace if stored in a back room. Many models are also portable, making it easy to move them around the shop or even use them at off-site locations for fashion events or pop-ups if required.

Safety first – Unlike traditional irons, steamers reduce the risk of burning or scorching fabrics.

Advanced commercial steamers come with safety features such as automatic shut-off and heat-resistant handles, minimising the risk of accidents in the workplace.
