Garments In the wash
All garments are collected weekly and laundered at our largest and most advanced laundry facility in South Africa. These facilities are the largest and most technologically advanced in South Africa. Our other laundries, located across the country, also exceed expectations – using the perfect combination of time, chemicals, temperature and mechanical action to ensure that all your garments are hygienically cleaned to the highest standard. Garments are washed and steam dried in our fully automated facilities. We also give each garment a final quality check, and any necessary replacements or mending is done by our laundry staff, at no extra charge. The freshly cleaned garments are then delivered to your door and the new load of soiled work wear is collected for the laundry. It’s a seamless system.
First Garment is committed to continuous innovation; keeping abreast of the very latest methods and techniques available. Our most recent technological development is Radio Frequency Identification, or RFID. This system transmits the unique serial number of an object or a person via radio waves, improving the tracking of garments and saving time through automation of key processes to give you complete visibility and transparency. Radio Frequency Identification uses special tags that are sewn into each garment. These tags transmit the unique serial number of each garment to tag readers, through radio waves. Using our proprietary software, this system allows us to automate a number of key processes, including collection, sorting and tracking of garments. It’s very accurate, ensuring that garments are never misplaced or assigned to the wrong person. And it’s very efficient; reducing the time and labour required to process your laundry.
First Garment Rental is also committed to sustainable use of the environment. That’s why we constantly monitor and improve our water, fuel, and chemical efficiencies. We are also exploring alternatives to phosphates in our detergents, reducing our electricity consumption through variable speed dryers, and using boreholes to reduce our eco-footprint.
