Slumber Solutions – Developing a duvet service

Share Article

After an online Daily Telegraph poll found that the majority of people use a duvet instead of blankets, PHS Laundryserv discusses how its new FX range of Primus washing machines could be ideal for businesses looking to provide a duvet washing service.

Laundryserv’s new FX180 washer and T24 dryer are an ideal pairing for businesses looking to provide a duvet washing service.

PHS Laundryserv is one of the UK’s leading providers of commercial laundry equipment, and as such supplies laundry equipment to duvet washing laundries up and down the country.

Vicky Davies, PHS Laundryserv’s Marketing Manager, explains, “An online Daily Telegraph poll earlier this year showed that more than 83% of respondents used a duvet instead of the traditional blankets. This is great news as washing anything larger than a single duvet at home is pretty much impossible, so it means that there’s potentially a very large duvet washing market out there.”

“Laundryserv’s new FX180 washer and T24 dryer are an ideal pairing for businesses looking to provide a duvet washing service. For a start they both feature industry leading door sizes – which may seem a minor detail, but when you’ve got a king, super king or even emperor size duvet in your arms, the importance of such a feature is clear!”

“The FX washer also contains energy and water saving features, which can reduce water usage by up to 15% and energy usage by up to 40%. These impressive savings are made possible due to the innovative design of the drum reducing water requirements, which therefore reduces the energy required for water heating and the low residual moisture levels reducing the energy needed for drying. The X control plus on the washer also means the same machine can be used to create a new revenue stream via wet cleaning.”
