I’m about to get a water cooler for my office. Do I need to clean it myself or can I expect cleaning and maintenance as part of the deal when I acquire it?
Your water cooler supplier will generally offer maintenance and restocking services (if you choose a bottled water cooler system) to accompany your agreement, but there are some basic care instructions that you can manage yourself. You need to keep your water dispenser clean in order to prevent bacterial contamination, and suppliers recommend a thorough cleaning every month, including soaking removable parts in a bleach solution diluted with water. Don’t hesitate to ask for quotes and compare offers from water cooler suppliers. It’s really the only way to ensure the best deal for your business. You can also get all the advice you need on cleaning and maintenance requirements for your system from your supplier.
