What would be a reason for more frequent changes of pads and covers?
If the padding and covers don’t seem to be lasting as long as they used to, there is a good possibility that the steel pads need to be changed. Steel padding is often ignored. However, constant exposure to heat, moisture, and chemical will cause the pad to break down and decrease the resiliency of the steel. Dry Cleaners often compensate for the lack of buoyancy by putting on a thicker flannel or by changing the pads and covers more often.
