The Governor of North Carolina challenged the state run organizations to set an example of environmental stewardship by issuing Executive Order 156. Our Linen Loss Reduction Program is designed to reduce our clients linen loss by 50%. We call this program Zero Waste to Landfill since we will be preventing millions of pounds of linen from going into landfills while cutting our clients costs.
Our objective is to partner with hospitality and medical linen management teams to meet the goals of their linen reuse initiative. This allows management teams like yours to focus on guest and patient care while we focus on providing your clean linens on time.
Case Study Results
Based upon a recent survey of our commercial customers, prior to retaining our services, their linen loss was running around 12% on average. After the first season with our service, linen loss is now being reported at an average of around 4%.
Of the 12 % total, 1/6th was loss due to damaged linens. Therefore slightly over 80% of the loss was caused by tough stains.
Our customized small batch system removes over 60% of the known stains, thereby giving each of our new clients and commercial laundry partners similar results as stated above.
We guarantee to Reduce Your Linen Loss by 50% and deliver your clean linen on time. In a 15 minute presentation we will be happy to explain how our program works.
The only solution to reducing linen loss caused by tough stains is to run small batches of laundry in soft water with custom detergents designed to remove specific soils from specific linens.
