Frequently asked questionsView All FAQ’s
Do you provide linen rentals or hire?
How do you ensure colour consistency?
Most people wouldn’t mix whites with colours in a domestic laundry. The same principles apply on a commercial scale.
Where other commercial laundries might run on one or two tunnels, Brightwater Linen has three tunnels that process around 5.1 tonnes per hour. This means we can use two tunnels specifically for whites, and reserve the other for colours. This helps us make sure your whites stay white and your colours stay bright.
What are your quality standards?
Brightwater Linen is certified to Quality Standard ISO 9001 as well as AS4146:200 Standard for Laundry Practice.
Our team undertakes quality testing procedures on a weekly and monthly basis to ensure operational effectiveness in removing soil and disinfecting linen without damage.
These tests include:
- Testing of hard surfaces AS4709.3.4 (including trolleys, folding tables and trucks)
- Testing Finished Product AS2998.1987, AS2995.1987, AS2996.1987, AS4079.200 (including sheets, towels and pillow cases)
- Microbial Challenge Test 3.4
In addition to microbial testing, swatch tests are completed every 6 months and are analysed by an independent laboratory. Swatch tests look for:
- Degree of intrinsic graying and yellowing, degree of whiteness
- Degree of soil removal
- Overall loss of breaking strength due to chemical degradation or mechanical damage
- Microbiological testing (available on request)

What is tunnel washer technology?
Tunnel washers are high-performing, energy-efficient machines that utilise the latest water recycling technology. Soiled linen is continuously loaded and passes through the tunnel in one direction, at the same time as water and detergents pass through in the opposite direction. Instead of waiting around for individual loads to finish, the soiled linen continuously goes into one end of the tunnel while clean linen moves continuously out the other.
At Brightwater Linen, we have three tunnels, allowing us to use two strictly for whites and reserve the other for colours. That means your whites stay white and your colours stay bright!
