Laundry and Linen Services in Hospitals


Laundry service is responsible for providing an adequate, clean and constant supply of linen to all users. The basic tasks include: sorting, washing, extracting, drying, ironing, folding, mending and delivery.

Water - the most important element in the laundry industry


Water quality is an important factor affecting the quality of the linen. In the washing process, the water acts as a solvent for dissolving and separating tasks compounds in stains out of clothes.



Dry cleaning is any cleaning process for clothing and textiles using a chemical solvent other than water. The solvent used is typically tetrachloroethylene (perchloroethylene), which the industry calls "perc" or "PERC". It is used to clean delicate fabrics that cannot withstand the rough and tumble of a washing machine and clothes dryer; it can also eliminate labor-intensive hand washing.
