Although high-quality industrial laundry equipment is built to withstand extreme pressure and experiences minimal wear and tear, even Yamamoto’s machines can benefit from preventative maintenance! In previous blogs, we’ve discussed some of what needs to be done to maintain your commercial washing equipment. However, why do you need to? What are some of the benefits of preventative maintenance, professional or otherwise? Allow Yamamoto North America to show you why standard maintenance and upkeep of your washers and dryers are crucial to your business’s operation.
If in charge of the laundry operations of a hospital or hotel, you likely have countless loads of laundry that need processing every day. So, when a washing machine suddenly stops working, the laundering capabilities of your facility can become compromised. And such machine downtime can significantly impact work and cleaning productivity, thus costing you valuable time and money. However, with preventative maintenance performed on your washing equipment, breakdowns are much less likely. Ensuring filters and belts are functioning and undamaged can help you avoid future repairs.
Speaking of avoiding future repairs, preventative maintenance can catch potential problems with your industrial laundry equipment before it becomes worse. Although Yamamoto washers come with a five-year ALL PARTS warranty, labor to fix severe breaks can become costly. Especially if more than one machine breaks within a short period, you begin to wrack up repair costs. Thankfully, the few steps you can take to monitor the condition of your equipment are enough to identify issues before they require fixing.
Yamamoto washers can provide high-quality cleaning and sanitization with every load. However, even Yamamoto equipment can fall victim to neglect. For example, if filters aren’t cleaned, they become clogged, impeding water flow into a machine. If too little water is used in washing, your linen cannot be thoroughly cleaned. Or, if you don’t keep loading doors open between periods of use, you risk your washer drum not fully drying and developing a musty smell. Ultimately, this unpleasant odor can affect subsequent loads of laundry. Monthly cleaning and inspection of your machines can avoid these problems and ensure your machine’s cleaning capabilities are to the level they should be.
In addition to avoiding repair costs, preventative maintenance can help you save on your utility bill. If parts of your system become dirty or start to break, they work less efficiently. In turn, a less effective commercial washer might draw on more power or water when attempting to wash loads, resulting in increased utility costs to run your equipment. Thankfully, it isn’t difficult to optimize the efficiency of your machines. Yamamoto washers feature easy-to-access metal housing and drain valves, so operators can easily inspect and clean its most crucial components.
