Woman using commercial dryer at Cliffdale

The Cliffdale Residential Home in Pontesbury, Shrewsbury is housed in a Grade II listed building and has been operating as a care home since 1945.  Licensed to care for elderly and dementia residents the home scores Good against all criteria in the CQC report.  It caters for a total of 27 residents in some single and some double rooms, most of which have en suite facilities.

The laundry machine, which was equipped by Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems on their fixed price hire scheme, handles all the laundry from the home including bedding, towels, dining room items and all the residents’ personal clothing.  It is operated by the care staff and, according to Tammy Hanmer, Manager of the home, “is operating pretty much all the time, day and night!”  Initial training was given to staff by Armstrong when the laundry was installed, and the training is passed on to newer members of staff, “it’s important that all staff know the correct programmes for different types of laundry,” Tammy said.

The fixed price hire programme covers all maintenance and repair issues including parts and labour throughout the length of the agreement, and allows care homes to install a fully compliant laundry machine without the capital outlay and makes budgeting easier – there are no nasty surprises if a machine needs repairing.

What our clients say...

  • “Our machines have come from several suppliers – there is a big difference in the standards of support we receive and Armstrong gets 10 out of 10 – their service has been consistently excellent over several years and when you’re as busy as we are, that’s very important.”

    Jacqui Butler

  • “It’s important to get the right equipment for the job, too small and it won’t do it properly, too big and you are wasting money, energy and space. It is also important to deal with a company you trust to supply reliable equipment and give you the support you need. As expected, the installation went smoothly, we have never had the slightest problem and I know Armstrong will deal with it if we do.”
