The new year is a time for resolutions. It is a time when most of us look to improve ourselves to some degree. As a business owner or manager, why not set some resolutions for your company as we look toward 2020? Why not resolve to do things differently with your uniform and linen program? The coming year is as good a time as any to improve how you supply the uniforms and linens your company relies on.

To that end, we have put together five suggested resolutions for 2020. If we can help in any way, we would be more than happy to provide service to your company. Alsco has been in the uniform and linen rental business for more than 130 years. You can rely on us for quality service and products.

1. Commit to Hygienically Clean

Linens that are certified hygienically clean have been laundered to a high standard. They do not just look clean; they are free from airborne pathogens, microbes and the like. Moreover, they are laundered at facilities with certified policies and methods.

We think a commitment to going hygienically clean should be at the top of every company’s list. If your company is not currently using certified hygienically clean linens, now is the time to change. Certified hygienically clean is no longer just an option; it is a must for any company that wants to help control the spread of illness.

2. Update Your Uniforms

A good second resolution is to take a good look at your uniforms and, if necessary, update them. Styles change frequently. You do not want your team members to wear uniforms that look outdated — unless part of your brand is the retro look. Also, pay attention to utility. If certain team members need a bit more protection based on the nature of their work, upgrade their uniforms accordingly.

3. Consider Renting Your Uniforms and Linens

Perhaps your company owns its linens and uniforms and does its laundry in-house. Could 2020 be the year you make the switch to renting? We hope so. Renting can save money over the long term. It also alleviates the headaches that come with handling laundry in-house.

Rest assured, we can design a rental program perfectly suited to your company’s needs. Whether you need uniforms, hospital or restaurant linens, washroom supplies or floor care supplies, we have you covered.

4. Emphasize Washroom Hygiene

Finally, 2020 should be the year that your company emphasizes hygiene in the washroom. As you probably know from news reports relating to handwashing and air dryers, the washroom is a rather unhygienic place without thorough cleaning. It takes a concerted effort to keep washrooms clean and germ-free. We can help. When you contact us, be sure to ask about our washroom supplies.

5. Let Us Know What We Can Do Better

Few things bother us as much as losing clients without an opportunity to keep their business. So for 2020, please let us know what we can do better. If you are less than thrilled with any aspect of your linen or uniform service, please reach out and talk to us about it. We are committed to ensuring that every Alsco client is a satisfied client. We will do whatever we can to resolve any issues.
