Taking Care of your Used / New Commercial Laundry Equipment

Taking care of your used or new commercial laundry equipment is probably easier than you think. Your used or new commercial laundry equipment is a fabulous investment but not one you want to repeat on a regular basis. Regular maintenance will help keep your used or new commercial laundry equipment running in top condition so TriState Laundry Equipment offers these seven maintenance tips to help you. First, gather all of the manufacturers Owner's Manuals and let's get started.


  • Blow down boilers daily to remove impurities from the boilers to the drains. For more exacting standards, have your water tested annually for solid content and create a blow down regimen based on the test results;
  • Use the annual water sample test to treat your boiler make-up water (frequency depends upon the test results) to prevent corrosion and deposits in the boiler which leads to poor heat transfer and reduces the boiler's efficiency;
  • Per the manufacturer's requirements, it is imperative to lubricate the equipment, especially the bearings and seals: These parts are very costly to replace and wear out or break down due to lack of lubrication;
  • Clean the heat exchanger coils yearly in dry cleaning machines and water process chillers (internal acid cleaning of refrigerant heat exchanger);
  • Clean the heat exchangers yearly in dry cleaning machines and water process chillers (internal acid cleaning of refrigerant heat exchanger);
  • Change the oil in air compressors per the manufacturer's requirements. Consider using 100% synthetic oil which breaks down less with use for better protection; and
  • Automatic oilers are an absolute must on any pneumatically operated equipment. These keep all pneumatic valves lubricated for proper operation as well as protect the valve seals.
