INFORMATION SHEET 10.1.1
The Laundry Department is very crucial to the success of a housekeeping department.
It is responsible to wash tons of linen and uniforms that are generated daily. The
supply of fresh linen is crucial to be able to make rooms available for sale or for food
and banquet outlets to be ready to sell their food and services. In other words, the
revenue generating capacity is greatly enhanced or impaired by the efficiency of the
laundry services. A hotel always has the dilemma as
to whether to have an in-house laundry or to outsource this service, after all hotel
keeping and laundry business are two distinct specializations.

LINEN AND LAUNDRY SERVICE

The Line and Laundry Section is responsible for the processing of all requests for
laundry service, including guest laundry, employees’ uniforms and linen used for
banquet functions.
The laundry section is usually managed by a Laundry Manager or a Supervisor and is
manned with the following personnel:

VALLET RUNNER Picks ups and delivers guest laundry


This is the area where guest garments are
SORTER/MARKER/PACKING received by laundry, and sorted by several
SECTION laundry treatment required: dry cleaning
and washing, degree of soil, type of fabric
and urgency of delivery. They are labelled
for identification later and packed for
guest delivery.
WASHING AND DRY CLEANING Responsible for washing and drying guest
SECTION laundry items and linen.
FLAT IRONER Does the ironing of linen used by the
Food and Beverage and the Housekeeping
Department
STEAM PRESSER Performs steam pressing of delicate
materials like wool
DRY CLEANER-SPOTTER Dry cleans and does spot removal
LINEN ATTENDANT Does the recording, storage and issuance
of linen
SEAMSTRESS Does mending of guest laundry or
employees uniforms
TUMBLER OPERATION SECTION This is a drying operation for towels and
towel –like material that ensures that the
material of a towel retains the fluffiness.

In big hotels with voluminous laundry job to be done, there is a rigid division of labor
with one laundry staff concentrating on one task. One is assigned to do washing,

another one for dry cleaning, one for steam pressing, etc. however, if the establishment
is small, with limited laundry job to attend to, it is not practical to have many laundry
staff.

The job of a valet runner which is to pick up and deliver guest laundry can be done by
the room boy or chambermaid, steam pressing and ironing can be delegated to just one
person. If there are limited items for washing, only one washer maybe needed to
handle both guest laundry and items for house use.

If the lodging establishment does not have sufficient laundry facilities, the laundry
service is sometimes contracted to a commercial laundry.

TYPES OF FABRICS
1. Cotton: Cotton a unicellular, natural fiber that grows in the seed pod of the cotton
plant.
2. Linen : Linen a fabric made from linen fibers obtained from inside the woody stem
of the flax plant. The term, linen, cannot be used except for natural fiber flax. Linen
fibers are much stronger and more lustrous than cotton. Linen fabrics are very cool
and absorbent, but wrinkle very easily, unless blended with manufactured fibers.
3. Silk: Silk the only natural fiber that comes in a filament form; from 300 to 1,600
yards in length as reeled from the cocoon produced by the silkworm. Most silk is
collected from cultivated worms. All silk comes from Asia, primarily China.
4. Wool:Wool, a fiber from the hairs of animals such as sheep, goats, and yaks, is a
textile with an immense number of uses. One of the major uses of wool is in garment
production, but this fiber can be used for many other things.
5. Man-made

a. Nylon: Nylon Produced in 1938, the first completely synthetic fiber


developed. Known for its high strength and excellent resilience, nylon has
superior abrasion resistance and high flexibility.

b. Polyester: Polyester A manufactured fiber introduced in the early 1950s,
and is the most commonly used manufactured fiber worldwide. Polyester has
high strength (although somewhat lower than nylon), excellent resiliency, has
high abrasion resistance, and resists shrinking, stretching and wrinkles.
Polyester's low absorbency allows the fiber to dry quickly. Polyester fabrics are
used in apparel and home furnishings.
c. Rayon:Rayon A manufactured fiber composed of regenerated cellulose,
derived from wood pulp, cotton linters, or other vegetable matter. Today,
various names for rayon fibers are taken from different manufacturing
processes. Rayon is soft and absorbent.
d. Acrylic : Acrylic A man made fiber derived from polyacrylonitrile. Its major
properties include a soft, wool-like hand, machine washable and dryable,
excellent color retention.
e. Acetate:One of the first manufactured fibers. It is soft and has a crisp feel. It
has the lustrous appearance of silk and excellent appearance when draped. It is
not a strong fiber, as its resistance to abrasion is poor.
f. Blends:Blended fabrics are created when two or more different kinds of
fibres are mixed together to create a new fabric with unique properties.

KINDS OF FABRICS

1. Colorfast 2. Non-colorfast

HOW TO IRON SHIRTS AND BLOUSES:

1. Starting ironing at the top of a blouse or shirt. Begin or end with the collar, working
toward the middle from the outer edges or points.
2. Lay one shoulder over the narrow end of the board. Iron one side of the front yoke,
then the shoulder, across the back below the collar line, the other shoulder, and the
remainder of the front yoke, shifting as needed.
3. Iron the sleeves and cuff, working down from the underarm seams.
4. Next, iron the body of the garment, moving from one half of the front around the
back to the second half of the front. If a blouse or shirt doesn’t open, slip it over the
end of the ironing board and iron front and back in turn.

PANTS
1. Turn the waistband inside out and pull the pockets out to iron first, then iron the
zipper placket.
2. Turn back to the right side, iron the waistband and the remainder of the top all the
way around.
3. Put the leg seams together in the middle and fold lengthwise. Lay the pants flat on
the board, fold back the top leg, iron the inside of the lower leg.
4. Turn and iron the outside. Repeat the process for the second leg. Finally iron the 2
legs together. If the pants have creases, press heavily on the folds.
