The bugs stop with Electrolux


30 May, 2014  
Laundry practitioners in the care sector can now access a wealth of professional support and guidance on best industry practice following the launch of a new Good Laundry Practice Guide from Electrolux Professional
 
As the global leader in professional laundry equipment, Electrolux Professional has published the extensive information pack to give laundry operators working in hospitals and care homes everything they need to ensure effective hygiene practice.
 
The pack, which is available free of charge to registered laundry practitioners, boasts a mini guide to hygienic laundry practices based on the RABC system/EN 14065, a catalogue of technological solutions designed to maintain optimum hygiene, and a DVD which visually demonstrates the correct procedures in a real-life care environment. For ease of access, operators wishing to view the video guides can also do so via Electrolux Professional’s dedicated YouTube channel.
 
The Good Laundry Practice Guide supports a product portfolio designed to meet all industry regulations and guidelines, and ensure that healthcare laundries are well equipped to adhere to hygiene standards. Electrolux’s product offering ranges from the latest in barrier washer technology, to tumble dryers and ironers aimed at optimising economy and productivity.
 
Amanda Dufrane, Regional Segment Manager Care for the laundry division of Electrolux Professional comments: “Our Good Laundry Practice Guide is part of our investment in providing everything laundry operators need to understand and implement the procedures required to meet the latest industry regulations and legislation. Anecdotal evidence tells us that many facilities are well below the standards necessary to run an efficient, hygienic, laundry and this pack will help them to raise performance levels.
 
“Modern healthcare cleaning professionals work in an industry that has seen a steady increase in concerns regarding disinfection in healthcare laundering, so it is imperative that they can count on expert advice.
 
“As well as manufacturing and supplying the technology to meet the unique demands of the care sector, we also recognise the importance of providing support in every way possible, from providing site-surveys to evaluating laundry needs and providing the solutions to fit. Our new guide has been designed to deliver just that.”
