Working with Laundry Managers

We work with Laundry Managers to audit and meet all the requirements for laundering, so that everything is configured for your requirements, because every laundry is different.

  • A laundry area designated for that purpose only, with separate ventilation and ideally a flow through system, so that dirty laundry can arrive through one door and be quickly decontaminated, before drying and removal through a separate exit to a clean storage area.
  • An industrial washing machine sited on a plinth with sluice and hot wash cycles is required. These should be professionally installed and maintained with precautions to prevent contamination by them creating aerosols.
  • An industrial dryer should be used that is regularly maintained to dry all clothing and linen. This should not be a condensing type and needs to be externally vented.
  • A regular service and maintenance inspection schedule should be maintained for the home’s regulating body.
