laundry (1)

When you have to utilize the local laundromat to clean your clothing, it is important that you make use of a sanitary facility for obvious reasons. The last thing you want to do is bring home traces of dog and cat feces, bed bugs, or toxic chemicals in your freshly washed laundry. The truth of the matter is thatyou have no idea what the person that used the washer and dryer before you actually just cleaned. Someone cleaning dog feces off their towels could have recently used that same machine that you are about to use to wash your bed sheets. This is why it is so important to take a closer look at the machines you use.

This guide will help you to easily identify signs that your laundromat is unsanitary:

Laundromat with Dirty Floors 

One of the simplest signs your laundromat is unsanitary can be identified by stopping before you even get to the machines and taking a closer look at the floors. Just like any business establishment, the floors need to be cleaned and sanitized on a regular basis. The way that you can tell instantly that this establishment is well managed is to see how clean the floors are throughout the entire laundromat. The best businesses will clean up that accumulated dust and dirt throughout the day, so if you see piles of dirt in all the corners it is a tell-tale sign the owner doesn’t have cleanliness high on the list of priorities. Look for dead bugs, live bugs, mice, dirty floors never mopped, piles of dust, even half eaten food lying on the floor, then start looking for another place to do your laundry.
