PROFESSIONAL Seymour House, a family run 40 bed residential care home in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire, recently expanded its operations by a further 10 rooms. With the development in mind, the owner decided he needed to futureproof the laundry in order to cope with the expansion.

The care home, which provides 24 hour residential and dementia care, had previously dealt with many issues with their laundry equipment. In a busy care home, maintaining an effective, working laundry is of high importance, so finding the most reliable products that would last year on year was important to the team. It was Miele Professional’s that Seymour House decided on.

Extensive dermatological testing has proven the product to have good skin compatibility and is declared to be ‘hypoallergenic’.

For healthcare environments in particular, where approximately 300,000 NHS patients contract healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in the UK each year, using Cutan® Complete can help reduce the risk of transmitting harmful pathogens from staff to patients – particularly if used in accordance with the World Health

Speaking with their dealers, First Choice Marshalls, the team were reassured that the cost savings for the care home over the life of the machines made the upfront investment well worthwhile. They decided to invest in Miele Professional’s PW6207 20kg washer and PT8403G 16/20kg gas dryer. The responsiveness of the dealers who come out to service calls as quickly as possible has impressed the team.

Salim Rhentulla, owner of Seymour House, feels that the Miele Professional machines live up to its reputation, commenting: “We’ve found the Miele Professional machines to be efficient and effective. It’s great that we can finish our laundry much earlier in the day, which leaves us time to do other things in the home. The quality of the finish is fantastic too! Being able to wash very delicate items and having the confidence that they will be cared for with the honeycomb drum is vital.

Paul Jakeway, Marketing Director at Deb UK commented: “We believe Cutan® Complete can really make the difference in ensuring the highest levels of hand hygiene compliance in the circumstances that require it most. Our hands are one of the main routes for transmitting pathogens that can be harmful to health and yet it is an issue that is often overlooked. By incorporating hand hygiene best practice into the workplace, supported by Cutan® Complete, organisations can now provide an unprecedented level of protection from these pathogens, whether that be for patients, colleagues or customers.”

“Ensuring the best quality of care is so important to us and it’s great that when the residents’ sons and daughters come to visit they can see and smell the lovely clean clothes in their parents’ wardrobes. Through this our care service and reputation remains strong and our rooms are always in demand.”
