Continental Girbau West, headquartered in Santa Fe Springs, Calif., recently hosted “Laundromat Cleaning by Design,” an educational presentation for laundromat owners. The session focused on cleaning and disinfecting hard surfaces, choosing the proper chemistry for wash-dry-fold processing, automatic chemical injection options and more.
“We invited a select group of vended laundry owners who operate full-service laundromats to participate in the presentation with ample time for questions and answers,” said CG West Vice President Tod Sorensen. “The presentation separated fact from fiction and offered laundry owners clear-cut methods for ensuring proper cleaning and disinfection of hard surfaces and laundry loads.”
Duane Fritz, director of technology for Anderson Chemical, explained his company’s “turnkey solution for delivering simple, safe and effective cleaning and disinfection.” The program includes a complete line of cleaning and disinfection products, written procedures, facility checklists and dosing equipment.
“The INTEGRA Program makes it simple for laundry owners to implement cleaning and disinfection so that their customers and employees feel safe,” Fritz explained. “It helps with training employees on proper cleaning procedures and techniques, and provides checklists to ensure those procedures are routinely completed. The INTEGRA Program helps laundries stay on top of cleaning and disinfection and encourages them to promote ‘clean’ to their customers.”
This educational presentation also highlighted the Express Clean automatic injection system for laundromats, which automatically dispensing specially formulated detergents, brighteners and softeners into compatible washers.
“It adds customer convenience by eliminating the need to lug and add detergent,” Sorensen said. “For the store owner, Express Clean eliminates messy spills, reduces the risk of slips and falls, and improves customer turnover. Simple and profitable, Express Clean is the perfect dispensing system for a store’s large-capacity washers and a unique amenity that set laundries apart from their competition.
“[Express Clean and the INTEGRA Program] are low-cost solutions that, when advertised, can help grow customer confidence in your cleaning and disinfection protocols and boost vended laundry revenue by more than 20 percent.”
