The Journey of Your Uniform

What happens to your uniforms when they’re returned to us? This process of inspection, cleaning and delivering is how we get you great service year round. Learn more about the journey your uniform takes here:

The secret is: if you and your employees look and feel great, the best work is done. It’s really that simple! From the comfortable uniforms all the way to the clean, safe, and attractive floor mats; U.S. Linen & Uniform can ensure that we are able to supply you with what you need, when you need it, in a condition that does you proud!

When your uniforms and linen arrive at our facility they become a part of the 10,000,000 pounds of garments and linen that come through our doors each year! Don’t let that alarm you; we ensure that each garment gets processed and sorted into the correct category for proper wash and care. Once each towel, table cloth, and shirt is sorted correctly we move onto the washing process.

Our largest washer can hold up to 900 pounds of clothes! That’s 90 times more than a home washer and we use less than ⅓ of the water per pound to do it! We always have ecologically conscious thinking in the front our minds. With our new water filtration system we reuse 10,000,000 gallons of water per year, and reduce contaminants in our wastewater by 95%! These numbers excite us and make us feel great about the service we provide to you and the world!

Another great attribute to our service is that hygienically clean uniforms will always be brought back to you. We wash all shirts at a steamy 165 degrees and then steam them at 275 degrees to ensure a wrinkle and virtually bacteria-free garment! Quality assurance is key to us! Every item is inspected for popped buttons, broken zippers, and tears before the garment is sent out for delivery.

In order to keep things in order for us and personalized for you, so both us and our customers will know where any garment is located at all times we use RFID tracking at U.S. Linen & Uniform. These handy dandy codes also help us find where any customer is located to provide the quickest delivery to you! We have large routes that travel an average of 400 miles each week to reach you!

All of the small details that go into you feeling great and looking sharp are extremely important to us. It takes foresight, organization and care, and that’s where we come in! The quality of our products, the timing of our service, and the way we run our business is all about you. We’ll schedule delivery and pick-ups when and where you need them. In an emergency we will be there. This is our idea of “Service When YOU Need it”.
