Berkeley Laundry – How We Operate
Not just another commercial laundry
Berkeley Laundry is proud to work alongside the NHS laundry at the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford, Kent. We have been in operation since 1977 and are highly experienced in washing linen to a hotel quality standard.
There are a number of advantages to this arrangement that directly benefit our customers:-
- The use of the latest in commercial laundry technology and detergents
- The presence of skilled and experienced operators to handle large-scale laundry loads
- Wash standards that routinely exceed the usual commercial laundry standards in all aspects
- Increased capacity: a wash load of 2000kg per hour - the equivalent of 400 domestic 5kg washing machines!
- Washes done at a higher temperature during the final stages of a cycle to effectively sterilise the linen
And last but not least …
- We are generating valuable income for the NHS
But I don’t want my linen washed with hospital linen!
We guarantee that all your linen and garments will always be washed separately from hospital materials. What’s more your linens are washed in compliance with CFPP 01-04 meaning that all our linen is thermally disinfected by being washed at 64 Degrees for 10 minutes or 72 Degrees for 3 minutes.
As a result we have one of the lowest rewash rates in the industry meaning that your whites stay white and that your linen is returned to you sanitised and hygienic, ready for your guests to enjoy.

A dedicated account manager
Many of our customers work with us because they can put a face to a name. When you take out a contract with us you will be allocated an account manager whose only job is to make sure your laundry and linen requirements are being taken care of.
Your account manager provides the day-to-day communication between us and you and will be your first point of contact for any queries or concerns. Our account managers have an intimate knowledge of the hospitality and catering business and understand fully the challenges you face. It's our mission to make sure that an appropriate linen and workwear supply doesn’t become something else to add to your To Do list.
