Maintaining Your Hand Dryer
Regular cleaning and maintenance are important in preventing failure in your hand dryers and ensuring that they remain reliable in the long term. Typically, the lifespan of a hand dryer is between seven and ten years, and in that time, they may be used many thousands of times. Modern hand dryers such as the Mitsubishi Electric Wave u02 and i01 models are precisely engineered and use high quality components to create a reliable system that should work well for many years, but there are still regular actions you need to take to keep it working as efficiently as possible.
Keeping your hand dryers clean is a vital part of maintaining hygiene in the workplace. Even though the exterior of the dryers use antibacterial materials, they still need to be wiped down using a soft cloth and a plastic safe cleaning product to preserve the finish.
Daily cleaning also provides an opportunity to ensure that the dryer is working correctly and identify any potential problems.
One of the most important parts to consider as part of the regular cleaning schedule is the sensor that detects the presence of a user’s hands. Splashes of water and occasional dirt can obscure the sensor and prevent it working as expected. The sensor needs to be cleaned at least once per week to remove any build up that may affect performance.
