Essex County Council is currently offering all Essex businesses a Business Adaptations Grant of up to £5,000, to help premises and operations trade in a Covid-safe way.

James Sharp, General Manager, said “The filter removes at least 99.995% of all suspended matter, viruses, bacteria, and mould fungi. Having this meant adding an extra layer of safety to our guests and our team. We are delighted to have this machine that complements the rest of our COVID measures.”

New Little Giants installed into Bright Little Stars Nursery

Bright Little Stars Nursery, in Harrow, North London, provides childcare and education for 140 children between the ages of six months and five years.

With up to ninety children attending the nursery daily, this busy nursery easily gets through several loads of dirty laundry every day. From paint, mud and food stains on children’s clothing to fresh bedding, Bright Little Stars needed a laundry solution to help maintain its high standards of care.  

Due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the nursery found that laundry items such as bedding, towels and clothes needed to be washed and dried more frequently to avoid the risks associated with cross contamination and infection as well as to ensure compliance with National Care Standards for Early Education and Childcare.

Its previous domestic laundry equipment could not cope with the speeds required of cycle times. Drying times were limited to three loads a day and employees often found that laundry was still damp after its cycle which can accelerate the spread of bacteria.

After hearing about the launch of the new range of Little Giants by Miele Professional, Bright Little Stars contacted us and we installed the Little Giants PERFORMANCE washer and dryer, which has a footprint of less than 1m² when stacked. With a load capacity of 7kg, the PWM507 drain pump washer delivers short cycle times of less than 60 minutes and consumes low levels of energy and water. The PDR507 heat pump dryer was also selected due to its fast turnaround times, with cycles lasting around 79 minutes. Miele’s patented honeycomb drum provides gentle laundry care while its PerfectDry system ensures excellent drying results.

Amol Devani CEO of bright Little Stars said: “We needed laundry equipment that could fit into a small space, required minimal maintenance and could handle the busy every day running of the nursery – and, we’re delighted to say that the Little Giants range ticks all of these boxes. The Miele brand symbolises quality, efficiency and reliability, which made it the perfect choice for our laundry equipment.

 “GW Commercial has provided an excellent service and the install itself went seamlessly. Engineers provided our nursery manager with the training needed to operate the machine on a daily basis, and this training can now be rolled out to our employees.  They explained everything from the fault-finding procedure to the monthly cleaning process, which enables the equipment to be maintained effectively.

“Our laundry throughput has increased to five loads per day, whereas before we were struggling to process three cycles. These fast turnaround times have helped reassure us that we can continue to offer high standards of early years care, which is especially important in a post-Covid-19 environment.”

Towel laundry installation at the Mayfair Hotel in London

We recently worked with the Mayfair Hotel in London on an on-premise towel laundry. The hotel needed a solution to keep their guest towels fluffy and soft, so we installed a quality Miele Professional solution to meet with their needs.

We found the GW team friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. The installation went very smoothly with no disruption to operations and I would highly recommend them to others.
