Hygienically impeccable laundry processing as an important part of standard hygiene

Hygiene expert Dr Arno Sorger gives his take on the assumption that laundry can facilitate the spread of micro-organisms if it is not cleaned properly and that using methods that include disinfectants can prevent it from being contaminated with pathogens.

In a statement by Dr Arno Sorger, hygiene expert, he says that laundry has been referred to several times as a carrier of infectious diseases: “The very nature of laundry, with its large surfaces and many creases, micro-organisms are protected from being removed in a mechanical washing process. The effect is compounded by the fact that the conditions are often perfect for micro-organisms to multiply or, at the very least, to survive for longer than they would on exposed surfaces.” This is why it is important for laundry to be washed in a very hygienic way as standard, i.e. that all textiles are only cleaned using listed washing methods that are proven to kill germs and they are subsequently handled in a way that prevents them from being contaminated with pathogens.

At SALESIANER, we clean all of our customers’ textiles using thermal sanitising cleaning methods at temperatures above 60 degrees Celsius together with recognised detergents. We have also always organised processes in such a way to prevent clean and dirty laundry from coming into contact with each other (including ensuring physical separation). What’s more, we ensure compliance with the highest standards of safety by regularly sanitising laundry containers as well as the transport space inside SALESIANER trucks.
