How To Keep Your Laundromat Clean and Tidy
  • Opening Intro -

    Your laundromat provides a necessary service for people, which means it stays busy.

    Unfortunately, busy places become dirty easily since so many people go in and out of them.


If you’re struggling to keep your laundromat clean and tidy, that’s OK. Keep reading to get some ideas that will help you keep your business looking its best.

Create a Cleaning Schedule

If you lock up at the end of the day and don’t know where to start cleaning, you need a cleaning schedule. A cleaning schedule can guide you through the cleaning process so that you always know what to do next, even if the mess is overwhelming.

It also makes it easier for someone else to clean your business if you’re not around. To create a cleaning schedule, break your business down into areas that need cleaning.

Floors, windows, seating areas, and machines are the four most important areas you need to keep clean. You should clean the floors last so that you can walk throughout the store without worrying about slipping.

Start wherever you feel it’s most important, and experiment by starting in different areas until you find what works for you. Then, write it down and follow this cleaning schedule every time.

Hire an Attendant

Not hiring an attendant is one of the biggest laundromat mistakes you should avoid. They can manage the business during the day and help keep things clean and organized after closing.

While paying an attendant will require extra money, the investment is worth it if it helps your business run smoothly and saves you from shouldering the entire responsibility of cleaning.

You can make a cleaning schedule together, make one that you want the attendant to follow, or allow the attendant to pick what works best for them.

If they’re the ones working in your business the most, they will have a good idea of what they need to clean and how. You can finally sit back and relax as a manager.

Bring In a Cleaning Crew

Sometimes your laundromat requires professional help that you or an attendant can’t provide. Needing professional help is OK. No one is an expert at everything.

Sometimes focusing on being the best in your business means bringing in someone else to handle the little things, like cleanliness. A cleaning crew can do that and take the worries of cleaning off your plate.

While they will cost more, possibly even more than an attendant depending on how often the cleaning crew comes in, many business owners think the investment is worth it. They no longer have to worry about this basic business need and can turn their focus elsewhere.

Keeping your laundromat clean and tidy is a difficult task, but with the right cleaning schedule, insightful attendant, or professional help, your business can shine. Take the time to evaluate your business needs and finances so that you can pick the best option for your business.
