Avoid laundry equipment downtime

Equipment breakdowns are pretty much inevitable. You can be sure it’s going to happen to you at some point, but it is important that you know how to avoid laundry equipment downtime so your operation can run smoothly.

Frequently check on your equipment

Get in the habit of checking your machines are working properly everyday. If there’s a potential issue, you’ll find it before it becomes a huge problem.

Stick to your maintenance schedule

When the day to day is busy, it is easy to skip maintenance tasks every once in a while. Doing this can cost you a lot of money in the future when equipment goes down. Train your staff and make sure you are all on the same page about the importance of maintenance. We recommend this checklist for your routine:

Leave doors open when not in use

Leaving the doors of your washer open allows proper airflow that prevents mold and mildew from building up.

Clean the lint screen after every use

Dirty lint screens on dryers are a common reason for inefficiency. Make sure you clean them after every use so your machine doesn’t overheat.

Keep the surrounding areas clean

Everything surrounding your equipment should be clean too. Nearby dirt and garbage can get inside the machines causing damage or even be a fire hazard.
