Hand Dryer Maintenance Tips

To make sure you get your money’s worth out of your commercial hand dryer, you need to take good care of it.

Inspect Regularly

Your hand dryer should be inspected regularly, depending on the frequency in which it’s used.

For example, a hand dryer in a small office which is only used a few times a day may only need inspecting annually whilst a commercial hand dryer in a large hospital or airport which is used several times a minute will need inspecting quarterly or even more regularly.

Keep it clean

As preventative maintenance, you should always keep your hand dryer clean. Make sure you clean the unit regularly.

Clean the active parts of the unit and remove any dust from the air inlet and outlet with a soft brush.

If your hand dryer is automatic and has an infrared sensor, clean it with a cloth dampened with alcohol.

Leave it to the pros

When it comes to mechanical or electronic maintenance, leave it to the qualified technicians. Don’t try and do it yourself unless you are qualified.
