Cumbernauld Nursing Home Adds More Commercial Laundry Equipment from WashCo

The Darroch Nursing Home in Cumbernauld occupies a 1960s building which was originally a convent.  It has undergone various alterations and developments and is now a 37 bed family run nursing home offering a high standard of care in a homely, friendly environment. About half the rooms have en suite facilities and all are furnished to a high standard. Registered nurses and care staff provide 24 hour nursing care.

The laundry has been equipped by WashCo for a long time, but when they moved it to a new room just over a year ago they also needed some extra capacity. WashCo supplied an Amazon 8kg washer and a Huebsch 16kg tumble dryer.  All the laundry from the home is handled on site including bedding, towels, dining room items and personal clothing for all the residents.  Julie Shanks, owner of the home, told us, “We have two full time laundry staff so the machines are in use all day, with occasional emergency use by care staff in the evenings. We have been very pleased with all the WashCo commercial laundry equipment and the service we get from the company.”
