Safe Practices

Dirty linens are unsafe linens in the medical industry. As a supplier of medical linens and uniforms, it is our responsibility to ensure that your staff and patients receive only top-notch linens. We don’t take this responsibility lightly.

That’s why we use the right balance of chemicals and high temperatures to kill harmful germs, bacteria, and viruses that may be in your linens. Our laundering process begins with an EPA registered non-bleach oxidizer called PAA which is an antimicrobial agent made up of peracetic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and acetic acid.

As a medical professional, you have a lot on your plate. You shouldn’t have to worry about your laundry coming back dirty. Unitex is here to help lift that burden off of your shoulders.

Hygienically Clean Healthcare

Not just any laundry service can get a Hygienically Clean Healthcare certification. They have to go above and beyond to earn it. Unitex has.

In order to be certified, a laundry facility has to be verified by third-party inspections and ongoing microbial testing. There are no shortcuts, and a facility has to maintain safe practices continuously in order to remain certified.

The Hygienically Clean Healthcare designation assures the safety and cleanliness of textiles rather than certifying only laundry processes. It’s scientifically based, and sets an established threshold that guides the reduction of pathogens on textiles to levels that pose no threat of human illness.

The microbial levels established by the Certification Association for Professional Textile Service Administration (CAPTSA) and the European Union (EU) are 20 colony forming units (CFU) per square decimeter for healthcare textiles. This serves as the basis for the Hygienically Clean Healthcare certification.

Unitex is proud to have earned this certification time and time again. It is part of our commitment to providing only the highest quality services to the medical facilities we proudly serve.
