With the Care Home sector facing increasing compliance requirements regarding infection control guidelines; our laundry needs are managed on site by our specialist laundry team. We use an in-house system called ‘OTEX’, this system kills all micro-organisms, bacteria, yeasts, moulds and viruses – including MRSA and C.difficile.
