How Linen Hire Can Help You
Linen rental can be helpful in many different ways. Let’s look at three specific ways it can improve the production of your business.
If you need to have laundry-cleaning facilities in your business, this can take up space. When you are cleaning linens in-house, you must have enough space for the washers, which are not the same washers you might have in your house. You will need specialised machines that are created specifically to wash large loads of linens. These washers will take up more space. You will also need dryers and/or places to hang-dry the linens, depending on the specifications of the cloth you use. The space you would be filling with washers would be a lost opportunity – you could have used it for another hotel room or more table space, depending on your business’s purpose.
The cost of owning your own linens is often underestimated. Most people think that buying the linens is the only cost they will incur. However, there are many more steps than this. If you choose to wash the linens in-house, you will need to pay for those speciality large washers. You will also need to pay the labour costs of workers. However, you won’t just pay per hour wages, you will also be responsible for paying employee benefits and the utilities for running your big machines. You will probably also need to pay someone in a management position. If you do not pay a manager, you may not end up with properly inspected linen. Additionally, you will need to pay maintenance for the washing machines that you own. All of these costs add up to more than you might have calculated in the beginning.
When running, the machines can be noisy and aggravating to your guests. Depending on the location of the laundry room, this can be a bigger problem in some businesses than in others. You will need a specific room for the laundry. Depending on your business, this may or may not be a problem. Furthermore, if your employee gets sick and cannot wash linens for a couple of days, you have a big problem. You will either not have the linens necessary or you will need to quickly find someone to cover the position. This substitute may not know how to do the job as well as your original employee, and you could be left with a shabbily completed job.

Linen rental can solve these common linen-owning problems for you. You do not need to pay so many costs just to have your linen washed. A fair, flat fee can be offered instead. You can put the space in your business to better use. Additionally, you can avoid dealing with the inconvenience of washing the laundry in your business. By renting your linen, you will be foregoing the typical problems experienced.
