Energy efficiency, cost-effectiveness and customer satisfaction will undoubtedly be top of mind if it is your job to oversee a hotel’s profitability. The revolutionary washing system Xeros has outlined three key ways in which investing in on-site near-waterless laundry technology delivers tangible business benefits:
1. Minimising environmental impact
A recent survey by Xeros showed 77% of people said they actively search for hotels that have eco friendly laundry facilities. By implementing Xeros’ revolutionary polymer bead washing system at your hotel, you will go a long way towards boosting its eco credentials. Whilst traditional machines use between 40% and 70% hot water, Xeros only uses 5%, on average – so with less water to heat, more energy is saved and your bills are reduced.
2. It boosts quality and cleanliness
The study by Xeros found 94% of guests think towel quality, in particular cleanliness, is vital for customer satisfaction. Xeros uses 80% less water and delivers a gentler wash thanks to the millions of revolutionary polymer beads used in each wash that gently remove soil and stains from fabrics extremely effectively. By using Xeros, linen loss rates will also be greatly reduced because the system uses less hot water, less chemicals and is much more gentle. In recent tests, the Xeros reclaim program achieved more than 70% linen recovery rate when compared with traditional processes
3. It reduces operational costs
If you examine the costs associated with water, energy, maintenance and repairs and you use this information to revamp your operations from the ground up, you could add thousands of pounds to your hotel’s bottom line. By bringing your laundry operation in-house using a Xeros machine, you can take steps to reduce the day-to-day operational costs associated with energy and chemical usage at your hotel by up to 30%, optimising the establishment’s profitability.
