Miele Care Home Laundry Installation

:
Elm House, a recently opened care home in Skelmersdale, Lancashire, has taken a proactive stance on infection control and the environment using high quality Miele laundry equipment installed by Liver Laundry to maintain a clean environment for the home.

 

Managers at the 34 bed care home have created strict procedures for cleaning and laundry activity in a bid to ensure that bed linen, towels, flannels and clothing are washed to the standards required by The Department of Health’s Health Technical Memorandum 01-04 (HTM 01-04). Due to issues such as incontinence, many items get heavily soiled resulting in demanding daily laundry activity.

 

Following building work that converted Elm House from a children’s home to a care home for the elderly, the owners engaged laundry equipment provider and Miele partner, Liver Laundry to conduct a site survey. They advised Elm House’s managers that Miele offered the most suitable equipment for the home, given that it machines promise quality, reliability and durability.

 

The owners decided that they wanted biomass boilers in order to be more sustainable. Their choice of tumble dryers had to reflect this, and Liver Laundry installed two Miele PT 8333 HW dryers that are powered just by hot water, minimising the home’s reliance on non-renewable energy sources. Liver Laundry also installed two PW 5105 washing machines.

 

Colin Bell, co-owner at Elm House says: “When we first opened our doors we had countless things to think about, but thanks to Miele hygiene doesn’t need to be a concern. We’re a premium care home that offers a range of activities from physiotherapy to hairdressing. But delivering high quality care to residents is the top priority for us. This includes ensuring that everything in our environment, particularly items used by residents, are kept thoroughly clean. The new Miele machines are great at ensuring this.”
