Culligan® Commercial Products and Services for Laundries

Reduce labor costs and rewash - Reduce water consumption and other utility bills while extending equipment life span - Get cleaner, whiter and brighter results
and extend linen life, while reducing detergent bills

A Culligan® water treatment system will reduce hard-ness to less than 1 gpg.

Laundries operate at peak efficiency at this level of hardness, some-times referred to as "zero soft wat-er."

Reduce labor costs and rewash

Hard water does not clean as effectively as soft water, requiring additional washes or rinses. The average industry rewash percentage runs about 4.75%, adding 30-60 minutes to the workload for each rewash or rinse. Reducing this percentage saves the labor costs needed for each rejected load.

"The sheets and towels used to have to be washed with extra bleach, sometimes more than once to be acceptable. With soft water, we are using less soap and getting better results. This not only is saving us time as far as labor is concerned, it also is saving us 35% to 45% in soap costs."
Executive Director, Nursing Home, Washington

Reduce water consumption and other utility bills
while extending equipment life span

A Culligan® water treatment process including any combination of filtration, reverse osmosis and soft-ening, combined with a chemical treatment plan, can dramatically reduce the prob-lems associated with hard or problem water.

The more scale in your boiler and throughout your system, the higher your energy and water consumption. Even a small reduction of scale thickness can reduce your utility bills.

Hot water is naturally more corrosive. Left untreated it can reduce the life span of any water-using appliance.

"Even on small boilers, the prevention of scale formation can produce substantial energy savings."
"Energy Tip Sheet # 7," U.S. Department of Energy

Get cleaner, whiter and brighter results and extend linen life while reducing detergent bills

Whether it is hardness, iron, or turbidity, water quality directly affects the cleanliness of the wash and the life of linen. Hard water does not clean as effectively as soft water. It may take up to 15 additional pounds of detergent per 1,000 gallons of water that has 10 grains per gallon (gpg) of hardness to clean effectively.

Rust or turbidity can leave stains or gray and dingy results requiring rewash with bleach or other chemicals. According to a Purdue University study, fabrics washed in hard water tend to wear out up to 15% quicker than those washed in soft water.

"The laundry was having problems getting the linens white and the cost of the chemicals used in the laundry was very high. After installing the water softener, the linens were coming out cleaner and the cost of the chemicals came down. The linens also don’t wear out as fast when washed in soap and soft water. Our savings were between 25 % and 35%."
General Manager, Regional Hotel Chain, Washington
