More than ever, first impressions matter, and clean linens are a key component of a great image. A quality professional linen services company makes provisioning and cleaning linens a snap. Among commercial linen service companies, Alsco’s linen services set the standard. With over 130 years of linen services experience, and a sophisticated laundering system that cleans better, with less chemical waste and water usage, Alsco linen services will help you, your team and your business shine.
When you buy linens, whether for a restaurant, healthcare facility or hospitality facility, you’re stuck with what you get. You have to launder, maintain, repair, track and replace all items yourself. Additionally, employee turnover can result in inventory loss and additional work measuring and ordering new custom items to match your existing linens. Often items you initially bought are no longer available from your suppliers, requiring additional custom tailoring costs and an inconsistent look for your business and your staff. This is expensive, inefficient, inconsistent and tedious to manage while focusing on your primary business priorities.
Renting through Alsco’s linen services is less expensive, easier, more consistent and more efficient.
Laundering Costs: When you rent linens from Alsco you don’t have to worry about keeping track of linen inventory, laundering linens, sorting linens and ensuring your linens are hygienically clean and visually presentable. No more headaches and lost evenings spent in a laundromat or poring over paperwork and counting inventory. Alsco takes care of it all at a reasonable, budget-friendly and predictable rate.
Repair & Maintenance Costs: When you rent your linens, Alsco monitors the condition of your napkins, towels and other items. Needed repairs are made while items are in the shop for their regularly scheduled laundering. When they wear out, Alsco simply replaces them with new items.
Always Clean & Sharp: When you rent from Alsco, you always have a fresh supply of clean linens. Dirty laundry is tucked away in specially designated storage bins designed for your safety and convenience. Fresh linens are placed in storage lockers or other designated areas to keep them fresh and clean until needed.
Alsco’s extensive line of customizable name-brand linens are durable, smart and stylish, with numerous specialty options. With many Alsco linen colors to choose from and a wide catalog of offerings, from plush hospitality towels to hygienically clean medical utility towels, Alsco is your one-stop linen service company, covering all your linen needs. Our offerings include these and more:
Our commitment to environmentally sustainable practices begins with our scientifically tailored detergents and laundering formulas. Mixing custom cleaning agents as needed for each load reduces the volume of harsh chemicals required to keep your linens clean. Fewer chemicals used means a cleaner world.
But the benefits don’t stop there. Alsco’s process also filters waste, keeping more of the chemicals required out of downstream waterways. In addition, after filtering wastewater, we reuse the cleaned water for additional linen laundering services, using less water overall, so there’s more to go around. Perfecting these processes has allowed Alsco to reduce its overall water usage by 50% over the past 10 years alone.
Finally, our heat-recapture process allows us to convert the heat-energy in wastewater into usable energy for operating our equipment, reducing our overall energy consumption significantly.
When you use Alsco’s linen services, your dirty linens are stored in a bin provided by Alsco. This storage keeps your employees and customers safe, while making pickup and delivery of your laundry quick and easy for us. An Alsco representative then picks up your dirty linens on a regular schedule designed to meet your needs. Your Alsco representative will monitor usage and communicate with you to make sure your plan is consistently meeting your business requirements. Alsco will leave fresh linens in a previously designated space for your use. When adjustments are needed, your representative will add or modify any part of your plan to help keep your service running smoothly and your customers satisfied.
