To keep prices under control at hospitality and health care establishments, a purchasing manager must find affordable commercial bed linens. The sheets, pillowcases, and duvets used for commercial purposes are designed to withstand numerous washings in hot water that is required to destroy pathogens such as bacteria and viruses. After the bedding is washed, it is dried at high temperatures to eliminate additional infectious pathogens, and most managers prefer that the bedding does not require ironing to remove wrinkles. Spas and hotels must change bedsheets, pillowcases and comforters frequently to meet the needs of guests who require fresh bedding on a nightly basis.
Hospitality Businesses can Choose Different Types of Fabrics
Businesses such as campgrounds and nursing homes require sturdy blankets, sheets, and pillowcases that will last for many years despite constant use from patients and campers. Instead of ordering one set of sheets at a time, a business manager must have the ability to order large cases of pillowcases along with fitted or flat bedsheets. The standard color of bedding wanted by most hospitality businesses is a pure white, and it is possible to combine bedsheets and pillowcases with colorful bedspreads, blankets, and comforters to create an attractive ambiance in guests’ rooms. There are also a variety of bedding fabric choices, including:
• Luxury cotton
• Wrinkle-resistant cotton
• Cotton-rich percale
• Luxury Microfiber
• Hotel microfiber
Bedding is Available at Different Price Points
The type of bedding chosen by the business manager of a health care facility or hospitality establishment will depend on the level of elegance demanded by patients or guests. There are several price points available to meet the needs of businesses requiring budget priced goods or those wanting higher quality bedding. The cases of commercial bed linens might contain 24 sheets designed to fit a particular size of mattress or 22 pillowcases that are made to fit on one of two sizes of pillows. Because all of the bedding is made of a basic white material, it is also possible for maids to use different types of fabrics together.
