We tend to ignore the less-visible areas of our businesses, which is a huge mistake. Maintaining the interior of your business is always important; it is what your customers see when they visit, giving them either a good or bad first impression of the type of service you provide.
That’s why it’s essential to keep your facilities in the best condition – so clients and customers keep coming back.
But what about the areas customers don’t usually see? If you’re a restaurant, hotel, spa, or any other type of business that uses linens, then you probably have a linen closet or other area where you store your linens.
Your linen closet is just as important as other, more visible areas of your business. An organized linen closet saves you:
Outsourcing your linen needs to Crown Linen, a linen provider that has been around for over 125 years, is the first step in saving time and money on linens. With us, you won’t need to worry as much about linen maintenance.
However, the way you store your linens is essential to save your employees time and make sure you are never short on what you need.
Here are our tips for a more efficient linen closet organization system:
By labeling what goes onto each shelf, employees can immediately grab what they need, sparing them from the search. Make sure to keep the shelves tidy to avoid linens falling off the shelves and onto the floor.
Linens don’t need to take up that much space. To combat the bulk, try new methods of folding your linens so you can fit more onto your shelves.
If your storage closet is musty or damp, your linens will eventually begin to smell the same way. Make sure you keep your linens in a dry area. Keeping baking soda in the closet may help with any issues.
If your linens are in damp or humid storage for too long, they can mildew. Take some time every now and then to remove them from storage, air them out, refold and store again.
An even easier way to combat odors from sitting too long is to simply make sure you are not holding on to more linens that you need. With Crown Linen, you can keep your linens circulating with our linen rental program.
