How Preventative Maintenance Protects Your Laundry Facility

Do you have an onsite laundry facility? If so, you may be wondering how you can save money by minimizing breakdowns. The answer is in regular maintenance for commercial laundry equipment.

Why Invest in Maintenance

Your onsite laundry facility is important. It is crucial to those who live in the building to have a functioning, well-maintained place to wash their clothes. If a machine breaks down, it can cost you a lot in repairs and lost business. However, when you invest in routine maintenance you can avoid most costly repairs and disruption to your business.

Maintenance Tips

Your maintenance provider will be able to perform routine maintenance and repairs. However, there are a few things you can do on your own to keep your machines running in the best shape possible.

First, check the doors of your washers and dryers on a daily basis. You should keep your loading doors open at the end of the day so that any of the moisture within can evaporate.

Next, you want to inspect the water inlet valve on your washers. There should never be any leaks at the back of the machine. If there are any signs of deterioration on the hose connections, you may need to replace the hoses right away.

Last, you want to make sure that the door glass is always clean. Wiping it down with a damp washcloth as often as possible will keep dirt and dust from building up.

The more time you spend preventing future problems, the less likely you are to have an expensive breakdown. To take advantage of laundry equipment services for multi-family buildings, medical buildings, college campuses, and more, contact FMB Laundry by calling 410-324-3654 or emailing us today!
