Employees washing their work clothes is risky. There are many different professions where laundry needs a more professional touch than what most staff are capable of providing.
Many Things Could Go Wrong Without a Professional Touch
If employees end up cleaning their own uniforms, many problems can arise. Here are just a few:
Dangerous to Bring Home
Many different professions work in scenarios where bringing their uniform home to clean is outright dangerous. For obvious reasons, healthcare workers don’t bring back what they work in. However, other industries such as food service, industrial, and hospitality share similar risks. In many of these professions, unhealthy chemicals, contagions, or grime latch on to uniforms. These staff can easily and unknowingly expose those they live with or around to these hazards.
Not Properly Cleaned
Whether employees have their own washers and dryers or they go to laundromats, they won’t be able to clean their uniforms as well as a commercial laundry service. The machinery simply isn’t half as sophisticated or as effective. Leaving it up to individual employees also means at best, they won’t be as thorough as a commercial service and at worst, they might not even clean their uniforms at all.
Another aspect of self-service laundry that leads to future problems is the lack of professional maintenance. Old and worn uniforms are less able to protect wearers against the dangers of their jobs. These uniforms are far more likely to fall apart and issues are far less likely to be noticed before it’s too late.
