Hospital linen may contribute to the spread of nosocomial infections.  Washing has two main functions, to improve appearance and to reduce microbial presence.   Successful laundering depends on several factors having a sysnergistic effect, these being duration, mechanical action, chemical dosage and water to work ratio.

The correct hygiencic management of linenis achieved by minimal technical requirements regarding transport,  sorting and laundering.

Prevention of infections involve:

  • Correct collecting and sorting of contaminated textiles.
  • Correct division of clean and unclean area within the laundry.
  • Correct sorting, laundering, drying and ironing of textiles.

The selection of washroom chemicals and supplier is a voital component for any successful laundry.   Different linen items are washed at different temperatures, with different water levels and laundry chemical depending on the level and type  of soil and fibre content.   

Use the WATCH principles when monitoring wash cycles:

W = Water, measure levels and quality.

A = Agistation, assess the mechanical action of the machine.

T = Time, sufficient to allow the chemicals to work.

C = Chemicals, selection of the appropriate chemical product for your fabric and soil is paramount.

H = Heat, important to run the programme at the optimum temperature to enable the chemicals function and maintain energy  costs.

Underloading a machine may cause too much water and laundry chemical to be used causing premature ageing of the linen and higher maintenance to the machine.   Underloading will also have cost implications as more wash cycles are required, increasing water, electricity, sewage, chemical and labour cost.

Talk to Biocel technical Services about dosing pumps for yourt laundry.  A dosing pump per chemical will be required.  Chemicals should be checked daily to make sure there is sufficient chemical and replenished if required.

Where washing machines use a card system, there will be a different card for each item to be washed.   Biocel technical Services can advise you on these requirements.
