Laundromat left in a mess
Saturday, June 30, 2012
I recently paid a visit to the Elgin Laundromat and was so appalled at the state of it that I decided not to do my washing there. The machines were filthy inside and out, with excess soap suds inside. The floor was littered with rubbish and looked like it hadn’t been cleaned for a month or so.
People who use the facilities obviously can’t pick up their rubbish. It makes you wonder what state their homes are in.
Who is responsible for cleaning these places?
DISGUSTED Footnote from Brendon Thomson of Diamond Drycleaners:
I have raised this with our cleaner and I know she does her best, with all machines cleaned inside and out daily as well as the floor being mopped. This is very important to us but we cannot be on-site all the time. I have asked for an extra clean during the day, so this will help.
An unmanned laundry does get people using it as a place to eat and drink, then leave their rubbish behind. But for most they are a very convenient and necessary part of the community.
We do need people like Disgusted to let as know when an Easy Key laundry is in need of attention so we can get on to cleaning or fixing it ASAP .
Footnote from the cleaner:
I do a really good job. The problem is people who don’t respect the place. It would be good if this person could sit there for a day.

Do you support the push for food to be provided in all low-decile schools?
Yes but targeted to those who need it
