Excerpt from Practical Hints on Conducting a Steam Laundry
Let us now turn to the Laundry proper. In selecting the premises try to get as much light as possible and freedom from dust and dirt. A plain room 16x40 or larger, with ceiling from IO to 14 feet high and a good ¿oor,... is the cheapest to fur nish and the best for all purposes. Plenty of room on two ¿oors will allow a good arrangement. Have boiler and engine larger than you expect to use. You may have need of surplus power or steam. Do not have your shafting and hangers too heavy, but put in enough hangers to allow your shaft to run true. Have a hot water tank and run hot and cold water to washing machines. A little extra expense on waste pipes in the start, will insure you a dry ¿oor and clean wash room.
Have your machinery properly set up and adjusted and do not be premature in advertising to start. Keep your machin ery well oiled and clean. It is well to take machines apart and clean them as often as opportunity offers, otherwise the oil will gum and oil holes fill up, and the machine need repair before you suspect it.
Give the marker a separate and quiet place, that mistakes may not occur through interruption.
