The door opens, laundry goes in, soap is added, buttons pushed and the cycle begins. For many of us, the act of loading our washing machine and unloading don't give us much pause. However, accidents occur around washing machines every day. A few safety tips from the laundry pros at T & L Laundry Equipment can keep you, your customers, and your equipment safe.
One of the biggest dangers when it comes to your front load washing machine is damaged hoses. These hoses are only rated to last about five years. Signs of stress cracks or bulging on the hoses can mean that a floor full of water or a slow leak is on the way. Choose better quality hoses that are rated for commercial use to help keep leaks at a minimum.
Check the seals around the doors of these machines often for debris and product buildup as this can cause damage to the door and break the seal around the door. A door that isn't fitting into the seal properly may not be making the connection with the safety mechanism that prevents it from opening midcycle. This can pose a dangerous hazard to customers and staff.
T & L proudly offers a planned maintenance service which helps laundromat and commercial laundry owners plan for their repair expenses. Keep your machines running efficiently and reliably with our maintenance plans. Ask your T & L representative for details. If you need a new vended dryer or commercial washer in Greenville, SC, ask about that too. We can save you money.
Customers overloading the machines can also cause the door mechanisms to become damaged and fail. Ask your customers to move to the next machine size up if you see them jamming their clothing into the machine.
Keeping a close watch on your youngest customers around the front load washers is imperative. Many children are curious about these big shiny machines and will be tempted to crawl inside to play hide and seek or get a better look. Remind parents to keep an eye on their kids around the machines and always check that machines that are not in use have their doors open. Each year hundreds of children get stuck inside washing machines and are injured. Make sure your laundromat has a play area, coloring sheets, or an arcade to keep the youngest clientele entertained.
