Top 5 Tips for Maintaining Your Linen

Commercial Linen Services Maintain Your Linen

At Petersfield Laundry Services, we pride ourselves on offering a bespoke, reliable and efficient laundry solution to businesses. As part of our ongoing commitment to help our clients optimise their services, we’ve curated a list of our top 5 tips for maintaining commercial linen. Following these simple steps can significantly streamline your laundry process, helping maintain your linens in the best possible condition and ensuring a seamless relationship with your laundry service provider.

Create Space for Your Linen

Proper space management for your linens is an often overlooked yet critical aspect of linen care. Ensure you have designated, accessible areas for storing your clean and dirty linen waiting for collection. These areas should be clear and easily accessible for our drivers on your delivery/collection days. Not only does this facilitate a swift and efficient service but it also aids in maintaining the integrity of your linens.

Use Appropriate Laundry Bags

When returning your dirty linen, please use only the provided laundry bags with liners. It’s important to ensure that items inside are not protruding and straps are correctly fastened. This can prevent damage to your linen and promote a safe working environment. Don’t hesitate to request additional clean laundry bags from us – we’re more than happy to help!

Communicate Your Linen Needs

As your linen supplier, we’re equipped to respond to your needs efficiently. However, we rely on the information you provide us. Only your on-site teams can gauge how your bookings are fluctuating with changing seasons. Hence, it’s crucial that you keep us informed of any changes to your needs. The more we understand your business, the better we can tailor our services to meet your demands.

Monitor Your Stock Levels

A proactive approach to stock management can save you a lot of trouble down the line. Check your stock levels daily to anticipate potential issues before they escalate into emergencies. After all, prevention is better than cure. Be aware that emergency call-outs might incur extra charges and potentially result in room closures if we’re unable to attend immediately.

Store Linen Properly

Proper storage of linen is vital to preserving its longevity. Linen should be kept in lockable and dry facilities designated for the purpose. When linen gets wet, it becomes vulnerable to staining, fibre weakening, and mould formation. Moreover, contaminated linen often requires more chemicals for cleaning, which can damage the fibres further. Remember, full linen bags left in wet conditions also pose a manual handling risk for your staff and our drivers.

Maintaining your commercial linen doesn’t have to be a complex process. With a little planning and regular communication with your laundry service provider, you can easily avoid many common problems. At Petersfield Laundry Services, we’re dedicated to making your laundry tasks as seamless and efficient as possible.
