Care home achieves complete laundry care

Lands House Care Home in Brighouse, Yorkshire has installed the latest energy efficient HS-6008 washers and gas tumble dryers from Girbau UK. It also chose the company’s Complete Laundry Care rental package for added reassurance and peace of mind.

Lands House Care Home prides itself on the quality and homely nature of the care and nursing it provides for 30 elderly residents. It is a popular and successful care home where regular provision of freshly laundered clothing and bedding is a key aspect of the service and care.

Effective, energy efficient and reliable laundry equipment ensures Lands House can maintain the highest standards while tackling a daily flow of bedding, towels and residents’ clothing. Existing equipment in the home’s very small laundry room was in need of upgrading, so proprietor Georgina Copley approached Girbau UK and her existing supplier.

With space at a premium, Girbau UK recommended two high-speed HS-6008 9kg capacity washing machines in combination with two stacked gas dryers. As well as being energy efficient, effective and reliable, the washers are fully compliant with Care Quality Commission (CQC) requirements and Health Service Guidelines HSG 95 (18).

Georgina Copley said: “The most important thing for us is that these new washers and dryers deliver consistently clean and well-finished clothes for our residents, which they do very well. We cannot afford any downtime in the laundry and want to have the reassurance and peace of mind of knowing the manufacturer will be out the same or next day to complete any repair.”
