Do you run a commercial laundry facility and want to keep your equipment in top condition to ensure efficient and impeccable service?
Proper maintenance will keep your equipment running smoothly, whether your laundry room is located in a nursing home, spa, sports centre or fire station. The Harco team has put together six proven tips for maintaining your laundry equipment.
1.) Follow a maintenance schedule
Consult your laundry equipment’s user manual to create an effective maintenance schedule. You’ll respect the manufacturer’s recommendations and ensure all maintenance tasks are carried out at the right time.
2.) Perform regular inspections
Even if you follow a strict maintenance schedule, problems can still arise between inspections or cleanings. Frequent preventive inspections will allow you to detect minor problems before they become major issues that could affect your operations.
3.) Keep records
Keep a detailed record of all inspections and maintenance tasks. This is particularly useful if you need to contact a professional for repairs.
4.) Clean your equipment
Like all appliances, commercial washers and dryers work best when they’re kept clean. It’s also important to keep the area around your appliances tidy.
5.) Encourage proper use
Don’t hesitate to leave a sign reminding your employees or customers to empty the lint filter after using the dryer to avoid fire hazards and optimize efficiency. The washer door should also be left ajar between cycles to prevent mould and unpleasant odours.
6.) Utilize new technology
Newer appliances can be equipped with technology that detects leaks and sends you real-time alerts when something goes awry so you can react quickly. Make use of this technology whenever possible.
