Maintaining Your Laundromat
Setting a strict cleaning schedule and maintenance check that is followed daily, weekly, semiannually, and annually is key. This can take some time and effort to plan but it will be worth the extra work in the long run. You'll be able to minimize issues with large damage or repairs, reduce machine downtime, and continually offer a clean and well organized facility to customers so that they can feel welcomed and comfortable while using your laundromat.
Bathrooms are one of the most troublesome areas in a laundromat. They should be cleaned regularly and maintained at all times. Many city regulations require most facilities to have at least one properly working bathroom. Depending on the size of the location, some city regulations require more than one based off of square footage. It’s important to offer your customers a bathroom that is clean and maintained.
Other areas that should be cleaned and maintained are as follows.
Soap compartments should be clean and free from damage at all times. This should be considered part of your typical cleaning routine and maintenance checks.
Dryer baskets should also be checked every few days so that they are clean and clear of debris and other objects.
Also be sure to check door switches regularly. If they’re not working properly the machine will not stop working if the door opens while in use. This could be dangerous.
