Company service Hartevelt
Making clothing water-repellent
Hartevelt has years of experience in cleaning clothes for companies. Not only the cleaning is taken care of by Hartevelt but also the logistics. There can be agreed in advance on what days the dirty laundry should be collected and when it should be returned fully cleaned. It is also possible to use our services on call basis.
To enjoy your garments for a long time it is essential to wash them once in a while and possibly impregnate them again to improve water-repellence. The water and dirt repellent layer prevents the stain from instantaneously penetrate the fibre. The stain remains on top of the fabric. Then you can easily remove the stain (dabbing, never rubbing!) with a clean dry white cloth. At the same time the repellent layer causes for a barrier against penetration of chemicals with company clothing.
Transparent registration Hartevelt has the possibility to scan all clothes and register them in the management system. You then have an overview how often clothes have been cleaned on person level. Hartevelt has equipment where barcode labels and RFID chips can be permanently pinned, because of this your textile is always registerable. This results in a fully automated billing and registration, this will save time and paperwork. Hartevelt offers the customer to look along in the management system. In this way the customer can directly see where the clothing is at that very moment.
Impregnation The outside of the fabric in often impregnated with a water repellent layer. This hydrophilic layer causes water drops to roll of the fabric instead of absorbing. This repelling improves the breathability because there doesn’t form a thin layer of water on the fabric that prevents water vapour to escape. Water repellent impregnation slowly wears off the clothes. That is why it is recommendable to reimpregnate clothing once in a while. It regularly occurs that with several year old clothing moistness forms at inside of the shoulders and sleeves during a rain shower. Understandably people often think leakage is the problem. In many cases this is not the case. Bad water repellence in the outer layer is often the cause. This can cause moisture to be stuck in the outer fibres of the outer layer. During a rain shower these spots will be a lot colder on the inside than the rest. Condensation will form on these places. This condensation can form such amounts of moisture that it will seem like leakage.
