Cleanliness is one of the most common features mentioned in guest reviews of hotels. Positive descriptions can encourage bookings. Negative feedback can damage your reputation and drive away potential guests.

Clean sheets and towels are essential for a positive customer experience. An on-site commercial laundry helps keep your linens fresh and hygienic.

Hotel Laundry Process

The hotel laundry process starts by sorting the items by color and fabric type. Sheets with tough stains can be pre-treated with stain remover.

Then, you can wash the sheets using hot water and commercial detergent. Commercial-grade detergent will remove tough stains and bacteria without damaging the linens.

You can re-wash items that aren’t fully clean. The final step is to dry the items in a high-temperature dryer. This process will result in clean, hygienic sheets.

Why Is High-Quality Laundry Equipment Important?

Hotels must follow regulations for cleanliness. Meeting guests’ expectations is also essential. A commercial laundry helps you meet both demands.

Hotel Laundry Regulations

A variety of organizations regulate or provide guidance for hotel laundry. These organizations include:

  • Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
  • World Health Organization (WHO)
  • American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA)

Some hotel brands have their own cleanliness programs with enhanced cleaning protocols.

Customer Experience

Guests expect a clean and sanitized environment when they stay in a hotel. The right laundry equipment helps ensure the sheets and towels meet or exceed your guests’ expectations.

Benefits of Commercial Laundry Equipment

Quality commercial laundry equipment is a significant investment. The benefits of commercial equipment make the investment a good option.

Durability and Longevity

Laundry equipment in hotels needs to withstand almost constant use. Commercial washing machines and dryers are designed for this type of environment.

Commercial machines are robust and durable. They use industrial-grade materials. They will give you years of reliable performance.

Larger Capacity

Commercial washing machines have a larger capacity than machines for home use. You can wash more in a single load, which improves efficiency. Large capacity is essential when you need to wash items like comforters or curtains.

Faster Cycles With Excellent Cleaning

Commercial washing machines have a faster cycle. They have powerful motors and higher spin speed options.

A faster wash cycle doesn’t reduce their cleaning power. Commercial equipment is designed to clean thoroughly even when items are heavily soiled.

Energy and Water Efficiency

More sustainable laundry practices are better for the environment. They’re good for your brand, and they’re more cost-effective.

Modern commercial laundry equipment gives you excellent cleaning as efficiently as possible. Machines have technology that optimizes water usage. They remove more water during the spin cycle, which reduces drying time.
