Steamers built to last

We often say that the lifespan of Propress Steamers is legendary.

Well, a month ago, Ron, a contract curtain fitter who does work for some of the biggest curtain retailers in Sydney, brought his steamer in for repair.

He explained at length just how good the steamer had been over the years, and how his clients were impressed and delighted with the results.

Ron had taken the steamer to an appliance centre for a repair, but they had told him it could not be fixed.

In a bit of despair, he brought the unit it to us.

To our surprise, the serial number of the steamer showed it was manufactured in 1991 and supplied in Australia late that year.

That was over 31 years ago!

A new thermostat and $80 later and the steamer was working perfectly and passed the electrical safety testing.

Ron had a spring in his step when he collected his beloved steamer. “I still have a few years before retirement, I am hoping it will keep going until then”. It probably will Ron!

Ron went on his way with a smile on his face, to again delight his customers!
