The Hotel Application Hotels are a key area of growth for wet cleaning procedures and practice. Cleanliness is a top priority in the hospitality sector, and providing a sophisticated laundry service is often part of the offering. Despite this, many hotels still outsource laundry, thus missing the chance to bring their laundry facilities in-house as part of a long-term business investment. This can be due to limited space, but also because they don’t have the resources to invest in hazardous chemicals and environmental permits, which dry cleaning facilities require.


Wet cleaning solves this problem as a commercially viable alternative with low regulatory compliance costs. It is a sustainable option for hotel valet laundries where large amounts of uniforms need to be processed, and with multiple programmes present, it offers a flexible way to clean the delicate, soft furnishings within a hotel environment as well as guest’s garments. Although it’s true that wet cleaning labour costs can be higher due to longer finishing times for garments, many laundry managers discover that this cost is off-set through savings in hazardous waste and disposal handling costs that are not required in wet cleaning. Investment into finishing equipment can reduce the costs, and with a manufacturer such as Electrolux Professional, sophisticated finishing equipment can be included at the specification stage, as well as the provision of staff training once the equipment is in place.

Additionally, Electrolux Professional’s worldwide service network ensures service reliability to make the laundry concept more robust, and upon purchasing equipment, professional training is even provided by the Electrolux team, so that all equipment is used to optimum efficiency. Ultimately, specifiers and laundry managers need to be aware of the new options that are available to increase laundry accuracy and productivity, as wet- cleaning continues to produce outstanding results with a more limited carbon footprint.
