Why Rent Rather Than Buy?
When you buy uniforms, you’re stuck with what you get. You have to launder, maintain, repair, track and replace all items yourself. Additionally, employee turnover results in inventory losses and additional work measuring and ordering new custom items to match your existing uniforms. Often items you initially bought are no longer available from your suppliers, requiring additional custom tailoring costs and an inconsistent look for your staff. This is expensive, inefficient, inconsistent and tedious to manage while keeping focused on your healthcare priorities.
Renting is cheaper, easier, more consistent and efficient.
Employee Turnover Costs: When you rent from Alsco you don’t sustain loss due to team-member turnover. Instead, an Alsco representative simply picks up the old uniforms and issues new, custom-fit uniforms to your new employee.
Repair and Maintenance Costs: When you rent your uniforms, the condition of your nurse’s scrubs, doctor uniforms, lab coats and patient clothes is monitored by Alsco. Needed repairs are made while clothing 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 medically hygienic uniforms and scrubs. Dirty laundry is tucked away in specially-designated storage bins designed for your safety and convenience. Fresh uniforms are placed in storage lockers or other designated areas to keep them fresh and clean until needed.

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 uniforms clean. Fewer chemicals used means a cleaner world.
But it doesn’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 uniform laundering services, using less water overall so there’s more to go around. Perfecting these processes has allowed Alsco to reduce our overall water usage by 50% over the past ten years alone.
Finally, our heat-recapture process allows us to convert the heat-energy in wastewater into usable energy for operating our equipment, significantly reducing our overall energy consumption.
These three processes, along with other innovative solutions, allow Alsco’s HealthAssure medical uniform laundry services to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, reduce our water use and reduce our chemical waste, keeping our world cleaner while keeping your team safe and hygienic in freshly laundered scrubs.
