The evolution of laundry systems in care homes
By BARRY STRANGE, P&G Professional technical team manager, Fabric and Homecare
Laundry is a key service provided within a care home due to the everyday demand for clean clothing, bed linen and towels. It is, however, more than just a ‘cleaning service’, as the quality of laundry can affect the overall comfort and well being of residents, as well as the opinion visitors have of the care home.
In fact, research carried out by P&G Professional shows that relatives believe that the cleanliness of clothes and bed linen provides a strong indication of the overall care given to their loved ones.
