The cleaning centre is the most important space on the whole property! Small details make it work great, but just as well little mistakes can make the space very inconvenient. An amazing property needs quality maintenance facilities. Here are some tips to support your facility design:
if possible, separate clean and dirty sides from each other
a central vacuum system enables dust-free cleaning of the space – also for machine maintenance
a sufficient area in relation to the property to be maintained
gradient falls in wet area floors – flat surfaces under machines
no open sewers
plumbing should be designed in such a way that there are no surface pipes to the sewers
sufficient three-phase sockets/safety switches for machines (at least 4)
a large enough grid for the sand separation well – minimum 100 x 150
no wall-mounted electric heaters
easily cleanable floors, walls and counter-tops
a water access point + a retractable hose for equipment and machinery cleaning
a maintenance point for gloves – washing, drying and disinfecting hands
a rack for personal protective equipment (face masks)
proper machining – the arrangement also matters
automatic dosing systems for washing machines – wall mounting
tumble-dryers with heat pump technology
front-draining lint basins for washing machines – only mop machines for the cleaning centre
no fixed cabinets for normal conditions, but durable open shelves – try to use wall surfaces
space under the shelves for machines and cleaning trolleys
charging points for battery operated machines
vacuum cleaners and other small machines preferably off the floor – makes the floor easy to clean
enough mounted racks in the right places
drying shelves for hand-washable products
enough transparent storage boxes with lids for cleaning textiles and accessories.
A Standard cleaning centre – machining
1 mop pre-cleaning machine
at least 2 mop machines
1-2 dryers depending on the size – textiles must also be dried sorted.
There must be a separate room for storing hand towels and toilet paper in the vicinity of the cleaning centre.
Other cleaning premises on the property can serve as replenishment points.
Preferably closed, plastic, wheeled cleaning laundry trolleys and adequate space / storage space for these.
Transparent plastic boxes with lids for storing cleaning textiles and enough shelf space for these.
